Individuals 55+ can embark on a renewed sense of purpose, with the luxury of time to explore a lifestyle that fulfills them and brings meaning to their day. More retired adults are opting for this luxury, worry-free living concept. The kids are out of the house and retirement has begun—a time of adventure, discovery and living the best life possible. Thanks to active adult communities entering the scene, retirees can embark on a new adventure of possibility.
The endless array of amenities and features provided make a switch to this type of community an effortless decision. Below are just a few of the benefits of moving into an active adult community.
Unbundled, A-La-Carte Pricing
No matter what age you are, the idea of unbundled pricing and only paying for what you want is always preferable. Active adult communities feature a flexible pricing structure—residents only pay for what they want and need.
Zero Home Maintenance
This is one of the biggest benefits to moving into an active adult community: no more house upkeep, property taxes, or dealing with homeowner issues. No snow shoveling or lawn mowing. Everything is taken care of—from plumbing issues to electrical malfunctions—just like in a regular apartment.
Similar Age Groups
This is probably the most impactful active adult feature: the guarantee of being surrounded by others in the same age range and at a similar stage in life. All-age apartments do not have this benefit and always come with the risk of having to deal with loud parties, inconsiderate neighbors, and possible altercations. In active adult apartments, residents can live confidently knowing that their peers are individuals that also share similar hobbies, life goals and interests.
Wide Range of Amenities
Many active adult communities provide a wide array of amenities such as fitness centers, swimming pools, communal social spaces, luxurious in-apartment features and finishes such as washer/dryer, planned social activities, excellent security systems, and more. The communities are also pet-friendly.
Need to call a cab or make a dining reservation? That’s no problem at all. Most active adult communities provide a concierge to assist with a variety of tasks such as calling a cab, making a reservation, or even offering general information.
Life is worth living well. Once retirement begins, time should be spent on adventures, trying new things and living to the fullest—not interrupted by the inconveniences of homeownership. This is why 55+ active adult communities are becoming so popular. Life doesn’t have to stop when you downsize. In fact, it could very easily become the best chapter of your life.
