What are the Benefits of a 55+ Development?
Developments designed for the 55+ crowd offer a lot of benefits. The main ones may be security, plenty of recreation opportunities and a sense of community with people of similar backgrounds, but the benefits do not end there. Nearly all 55+ single family home communities, particularly newer ones, have single story homes (condos always have elevators). No more having to go up and down stairs all day long. Many have home owners' associations that take care of the exterior maintenance, including mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow. Others have rental programs so that if you decide to go on vacation for six months, the association will find a qualified renter for you. There are even communities that will, for a monthly fee, provide meals, housekeeping and 24/7 emergency services.
