Planned retirement communities are found in nearly all states, but the majority are concentrated in the southeastern and southwestern portions of the country, in places like Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Arizona.

Texas, Nevada and New Mexico are seeing more but still lag behind the Southern states. As migration to these areas continues, more will be popping up.
In general, homes in 55+ communities are usually - but not always - more expensive than properties in general subdivisions or organic neighborhoods because of the amenities, activities and security provided. Many age-restricted communities have prices starting in at least the high-$100,000s to low-$200,000s, rising significantly from there.
