The Benefits of 55+ Communities

55 + Commuinities Gated Entrance | Top Gated CommunitiesAs you are getting closer to retirement, there are probably a lot of things running through your head. What area do I want to live in? How much will it cost? What kinds of things are nearby? Do I look into 55+ communities? Some retirees are hesitant about the last question, unsure as to whether or not to consider those communities as an option. But aside from the fact that the age is restricted, there are plenty of advantages to living in a 55+ community.

A big perk of living in a 55+ community is the sense of security. The majority of them are gated, so not just anyone can come and go as they please. They also might have private security in the neighborhood providing a visible security presence. Your neighbors are probably home during the day too, and would most likely notice anything out of the ordinary, which only adds to the sense of security. Colonial Heritage, a community nestled in historic Williamsburg, VA, can offer the security you need thanks to their 24 hour gated security. So while you’re out enjoying an activity, or exploring the city of Williamsburg, you’ll have peace of mind when it comes to the safety of your home.

Since age is restricted in these communities, you’ll find that most of your fellow residents are on the quieter side. This is a nice aspect when you’re looking to find a place that will allow for optimum relaxation. But that also doesn’t mean everyone keeps to themselves, and not a peep is heard throughout the neighborhood. These communities offer access to a wide variety of activities to keep you busy and mingling with your neighbors—which will also give you the chance to meet and becomes friends with people in your own age group. Trilogy communities were designed specifically for the Baby Boom generation. With locations scattered across the country—FL, WA, VA, AZ, NV, and CA—you’re bound to find your ideal destination in a community designed for you, with people who are on the same page as you.

55 + Communities Provide Great Neighbors | Find Your Best Place to RetireMaintaining your active lifestyle is a must—be it boating, golf, hiking—and these communities are equipped with all kinds of activities to do that. They are also conveniently placed near top notch medical facilities. Though you’ve still got years of good times ahead of you, it’s a comfort knowing that medical help isn’t too far away. Along with the great amenities you’ll find at Virginia Heritage, be it bocce ball, the swimming pools, or walking trails, you’ll also take comfort in the fact that this community is near excellent healthcare.

The homes in 55+ communities are designed for an easy living flow. You might find that many of them have the master suite on the main level, or are completely single-level living. The homes are also low maintenance, leaving you with more time to enjoy the things you love rather than worrying about what needs to be fixed around the house. Homes in Heritage Shores, located in Bridgeville, DE, are built with the latest technologies and floorplans, ensuring that you have a luxurious community to call home, and the ease of low maintenance and energy efficiency to go with it.
