Active Adult Lifestyle: breaking it down for you

An Active Adult Community makes reference to neighborhoods of homes owned exclusively by individuals or couples age 55 and older. The main objective with this concept is to directly meet the special needs of this portion of our society that have achieved so much in life and now deserve a peaceful and fulfilling retirement. 

 

Benefits of Active Retirement Communities

Here’s a list of things to consider if you are in this life stage and this lifestyle option sounds attractive to you:

Housing options

There’s a range of housing options you can pick from: you can find detached single-family homes, condominiums, garden homes or apartments. Whatever is most fitting to your desired lifestyle within our communities.

Special advantages

Reaching 55 means unlocking a lifestyle that wasn’t available before: these communities offer privileges like enhanced security, minimal maintenance and numerous comforts and amenities to choose from: Corbinton at Kildaire Farm offers serene natural spaces, activity areas, dog parks, close proximity to golf courses, shopping centers and more, which encourages social interaction and bonding with people with similar interest and more.

Residents of our communities find that all the time they previously spent maintaining their yards and pools can now be invested in much more desired activities. Traveling becomes attractive again once you realize your lawn and outdoor maintenance will be taken care of.

Age limitations and requirements

As mentioned before, this comfortable lifestyle isn’t available for just anyone. Each community has an age policy that can be set at 55 years, others may be higher, lower or have none at all. Policies about younger visitors should be revised as well.

Neighborhood regulations

In order to ensure the residents’ well being and happiness, all aspects of cohabitation are regulated. These rules and regulations often apply to number of occupants per housing, access to non-residents, restrictions on home customizations (painting, landscaping), pet restrictions, visitations and overnight stayings. This doesn’t mean grand-kids and loved ones visits would be restricted, as you’ll find family members are encouraged to spend time in the community’s facilities with their parents or grandparents.

 

These are the main considerations to keep in mind as you search for the home of your dreams.
