Have you been considering moving to an active adult community? Over the last decade, these all-in-one communities have become an increasingly popular choice for retirees and 55+ adults.

But with so many to choose from, how do you know which is right for you and the lifestyle you want?

We’ve found these 3 factors to be the most important to consider when searching for the perfect active adult community for you:

1. Location

Location is the first thing to consider when looking to buy your retirement home. This can include the climate of the area, its proximity to your family, and much more. There are many states that are more tax-friendly to retirees than others, so be sure to research the tax laws in the state you plan to live in.

It’s also important to decide if you want to live near the beach, the mountains, or even the dessert. Do you want to be in a colder climate or a warmer one?

Most retirement communities offer on-site amenities but don’t forget to consider the area outside of your community. You may want to be near bigger attractions that your family and even grandkids will enjoy!

2. Budget

Budget is also an important factor when looking for your forever home. For example, Florida has been named one of the best places to retire. This is not only due to the sunshine but also because of how budget-friendly it can be for the 55 plus community.

Luckily, most active adult communities have an abundance of options to choose from that can match your wants and needs in a home. Whether you’re looking for a two-bedroom or a four-bedroom, a 2-car garage, or an extra den for guests, you can work with an agent who will find you the perfect home on the right budget.

3. Activities for Active Adults

It’s important to find a 55+ community with on-site amenities that promote a healthy lifestyle. According to researchers, switching from a sedentary lifestyle to a moderately active one can make the biggest difference to your health.

Activities available at one of these communities can range from swimming, racquetball, tennis, golf, and much more. You can also find clubs to join, such as a poker club, a gardening club, trivia, etc. These various amenities can help you maintain a healthy physical and mental lifestyle.

Look for communities where you can continue doing a hobby you love or start something new!

Simple and Stress-Free

Another important factor when buying your forever home is the process. Look for a retirement community that is there to take care of you and help you find the best possible home for your future. Make sure the agents answer all of your questions, including whether a community is age-restricted or age-targeted.

Be sure to find a retirement community that offers long-distance support, detailed search options, and virtual tours. These factors can make the home buying process simple and stress-free.
