55+ Communities

April 21, 2006

An Active Adult community is an age-restricted community that typically requires at least one resident be age 55 or better and restricts anyone under 19 from being a permanent resident. Age restrictions may vary by community.

  • Active Adult housing (55+) is the fastest-growing segment of the US housing market.
  • Nationally, the average age of a buyer in an Active Adult community is 66 years.
  • The vast majority of purchasers in Active Adult communities are not retired, and have no imminent plans for retirement.
  • Among surveyed prospective Active Adult buyers, 85% cited a desire to be more physically active once they move to their new home. Golf was the most popular activity of choice.
  • ‘Boomers’ – those considered most likely to drive the Active Adult movement, currently represent as much as 29% of the total US population!

I have just listed a two bedroom condominium in an Active Adult Community called Parkway Villas. Click here for more information.
