What Are Active Adult Communities – 55 Plus Communities?
Active Adult Communities (also known as 55+ Communities) are real estate developments that offer independent, relatively maintenance-free living to residents aged 55 plus. In these 55 plus active adult communities, typically at least 80% of the homeowners must be a part of the 55+ crowd; however, that percentage may vary from community to community.
Many of the residents of 55+ communities continue to work either part or full time, which is why the term “active adult retirement communities” is less accurate. Most residents of these Active Adult Communities are not “anti-children”, they simply want to live next to others that are in the same stage of life as themselves, who share a few of the same leisure-time interests and lifestyle.
Homes within Active Adult Communities tend to be single-family detached homes that are designed for first-floor living. They typically range from 1500 to 2,000 square feet, and lots tend to be less than a quarter of an acre. Homes within 55 plus communities typically have few, if any, steps to get into the home, and often boast details like toggle/rocker light switches, lever handles, shower stalls with seats, wide doorways, and other features that make life easier for people who are experiencing the inconveniences and pains associated with aging. Home exteriors are designed to require little or no maintenance, and often a homeowner association (HOA) fee includes such tasks as landscaping and snow removal.
