DENVER — According to research from the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 70% of Active Adults aged 55+ do not live in a community designed around their needs. After working and raising children, many empty nesters are seeking out communities more in line with new priorities and interests.
It’s About Lifestyle
Many active adult communities offer recreational amenities and resort-like atmospheres. Lifestyle Directors continue to up the ante on resident engagement by coordinating neighborhood events, fitness challenges, as well as booking workshops and classes to help people rediscover their passions and find new ones. Lifestyle Directors can also act as advocates for wellness, creating opportunities that support mental health and social interaction.
How Much Does It Cost?
When considering a 55+ community, a few big questions pop up. How much will it cost? What if the current house sells before the new house is built? Lenders today have many options so people can remain in their current houses until construction is complete.
