55+ Communities

55+ communities are popular among retirees looking for real estate. They have the advantage of attracting like-minded people that enjoy activities such as golf, pickleball, and those that appeal to active adults. Many are built near healthcare facilities, shopping centers, and daily conveniences for quick access. With low-maintenance homes and lawn maintenance often included in HOA fees, these active retirement communities allow you to spend more time doing activities that you enjoy.

Not all 55 and older communities have the same rules regarding age restrictions. Some allow a specific proportion of people under the age of 55 to live within their gates. So, if you have a spouse in a different age bracket, you can still qualify to live in a 55 plus community.

Over 55 communities have a range of housing options including condominiums, townhomes, single-family homes, and more. Location is not limited to the typical retirement destinations in the Southeast. There are options in every region of the United States, from mountains and deserts, to lakes and coastal areas. Browse these 55+ active adult communities to find your perfect place to retire.
