If you are thinking about retiring to a community, here are some factors to consider.

  1. Low Maintenance Living – Exteriors maintenance is provided by the HOA, paid for by the resident – retire without the burden of maintaining a yard or exterior repairs
  2. Age Restricted – Communities are usually 40+ or 55+ allowing residents to interact with people of their own age. Allowing you to make new friends who have things in common with you.
  3. Convenient Location – Communities are often built near shopping, restaurants, parks and beaches, etc. Everything you need close the community.
  4. Active Lifestyle –  Communities have pools, tennis courts, golf courses, clubhouses and more – Enjoy social activities with other residents like parties and groups that meet periodically.  This gives you opportunities to make friends with other retirees with common interests.
  5.  A Sense of Community – A community lifestyle offers more physical and mental stimulation allowing you to live a happier, healthier life. With clubs, fitness classes and walking trails conveniently close,  you can stay in shape well into retirement.
  6. Quiet Environment – Most communities do not allow children to live there. Children and grandchildren are welcome to visit but must be considerate of the residents and follow the rules.  Some communities have pet restricted areas ensuring a peaceful environment.
  7. Mobile Homes are Cheap – Most mobile homes do not cost much allowing you to save money on housing. Mobile homes do not require a lot of maintenance also.
  8. Mobile Homes Don’t Have Stairs – Almost every retirement community has single level homes with everything on one floor. As we age, going up and down stairs can be impossible.
  9. Warmer Climate – Retire in Florida or Arizona where retirement communities are abundant. With year around warmth and sunshine, leave the seasons behind as well as your winter coats.
  10. Have the Best of Both Worlds – Don’t like it too hot? Become a snowbird and spent your winters in Florida or Arizona and your summers at your other home. No need to worry about your mobile home while you’re away, all exterior maintenance is covered by the community.
