Active Adult Communities

Active adult communities are becoming increasingly popular among baby boomers entering retirement. These active retirement communities are designed to complement active adult living and usually feature low-maintenance homes, resort-style amenities, and proximity to healthcare and entertainment. Some are age-restricted over 55 communities, while others are simply age-targeted and non-restrictive.

Location is key to an active adult lifestyle. Active adult communities provide quick access to daily conveniences, with locations near shopping centers, restaurants, cultural attractions, airports, and metropolitan areas. Perhaps the best part of living in an active adult community is the low-maintenance lifestyle. Many HOAs incorporate lawn care, trash pickup, and exterior home maintenance, so that residents can spend more time doing the things they enjoy. Explore these amenity-rich active living communities to find your low-maintenance single-family home, condominium, or townhome.
