Retirement communities, homes, lifestyle and even retirement foods are not what they once were. Fifty years ago one might imagine retirement communities to be beige bingo halls serving cafeteria food. Not anymore. Today retirement takes on a whole new meaning and with people living longer on average and living more active lives in their older years, choosing a place to retire can be challenging and often overwhelming. Where can I live surrounded by people of similar age and lifestyle while also enjoying the benefits a planned community can offer? Is it difficult to find the right 55 plus real estate for me? The 55 plus real estate market is better than ever before. Options are endless with many communities, amenities, and floorplans to choose from. And fortunately, active adult communities Phoenix AZ are represented with the best luxury homes in the market.
So what are 55 plus communities and why choose a community rather than buying your own individual home in typical Phoenix neighborhood? 55 plus communities are for active adults 55 years and older, who wish to be in a planned community that offers not only beautiful homes, but also numerous amenities and activities. Homes are beautiful custom style homes. Often with many different home styles and sizes to choose from depending on the facility. Whatever your price range, you can find a house that is right for you. Homes are all centrally located around the facilities and clubhouses.
Typical found within these communities are a main club house which is the hub of activity.
