What to Look For When Considering 55+ Communities
Buying a home in a 55-plus community can be an exciting and rewarding experience. Active adult communities are designed specifically for those 55 years old or older and usually offer amenities tailored to their needs and preferences.
If you’re considering purchasing a home in an active adult community, here are some tips to help you make an informed decision and reap the benefits:
Consider your long-term needs: Think about your current and future needs when choosing a home in an active adult community. Are you looking for a single-family home, townhouse, or condominium? Consider factors like the size of the property, accessibility features, and the availability of healthcare services nearby. It’s essential to choose a home that accommodates your lifestyle both now and in the years to come.
Research and visit multiple communities: Start by researching different active adult communities in your desired location. Look for communities that align with your lifestyle and offer amenities that are important to you, such as fitness centers, swimming pools, golf courses, social clubs, and organized activities. Visit the communities in person to get a sense of the atmosphere, meet residents, and see if it feels like a good fit for you.
Evaluate the location: Consider the location of the active adult community in relation to essential amenities like grocery stores, medical facilities, and recreational areas. Assess the proximity to family and friends, as well as the availability of public transportation if needed. The location should align with your preferences and facilitate easy access to the services and activities that are important to you.
Have a financial plan: If you’ve recently retired, or are planning to do so soon, sit down with a financial planner to run the numbers to make sure the ongoing costs of a new home won’t impact your long-term financial security. While some buyers are able to finance their new home in a 55+ community with the proceeds from selling their current home or other assets, others may require financing assistance. If you need help, Fannie Mae has specialty financing for senior housing and maintains a database of partner lenders.
Understand the community rules: 55+ communities often have specific rules and fees. The rules can cover various aspects, such as pet ownership, noise restrictions, and exterior home modifications. Ask about community fees, which may include maintenance, security, and access to amenities. Understand the financial obligations and ensure they fit within your budget.
There are also a variety of benefits of buying a home in an active adult community:
- Maintenance-free living: Many of these communities offer maintenance services, including landscaping, exterior home maintenance, and snow removal. This allows you to focus on enjoying your home and the activities you love, rather than spending time and energy on tedious household chores.
- Sense of community: One of the significant benefits of living in an active adult community is the sense of community and camaraderie among residents. These communities often have social events and clubs, providing opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals and form new friendships.
- Active lifestyle: Active adult communities provide fitness classes, hobby groups, game nights, and organized trips. These communities foster a vibrant lifestyle, encouraging residents to stay active and connected.
- Amenities and conveniences: Active adult communities often have an array of amenities, such as swimming pools, fitness centers, walking trails, tennis courts, and clubhouses. These amenities are located within the community, allowing you to enjoy a range of recreational activities.
