Pros of Living in a 55+ Community in Sarasota, Florida

There are many reasons why seniors like yourself love living in 55+ communities. These are some of the many benefits that you can enjoy:

  • Peace and Quiet - Since you don't have to worry about children, teens or younger adults, you don't have to worry about the loud music, playing and other noisy activities that can be found in many other communities. It's your retirement, and you deserve some peace and quiet.
  • Access to Healthcare - In most cases, 55+ communities are generally located near hospitals and physician's offices, so you won't have to travel far for healthcare.
  • Security - Many 55+ communities are located inside gated neighborhoods, so you can always feel safe in your new home.
  • Activities - You don't want to spend your retirement bored and with nothing to do. 55+ communities usually offer plenty of fun activities, like golf or swimming.
  • Like-Minded Individuals - Making new friends should be a breeze in one of these communities; you will be surrounded by others in the same age group, so it will be easy to find people who you have a lot in common with.
  • Comfortable and Safe Home - Many of these homes are designed with seniors in mind, which means that they are often set up with safety devices in place, ramps and more. This can help your home transition with you as you get older and can save you money over having to install these things in the future.

Cons of Living in a 55+ Community in Sarasota, Florida

Although there are many advantages to living in a 55+ community, there are a few slight disadvantages that you should know about:

  • Younger Family Members Aren't Welcome - Unfortunately, if you have adult children, grandchildren or other family members who live with you, they probably won't be welcome in a 55+ community on an extended basis.
  • Homeowner's Association Fees - In most cases, you will have to pay homeowner's association fees. You will probably want to compare these fees when choosing a community to live in.
  • You'll Be Away from Home - If you are planning on relocating to Sarasota to live in one of these communities, put some thought into your decision. You don't want to find out that you miss "home" after you've already purchased a home.

Although they aren't for everyone, 55+ communities can have a lot of advantages. These are a few of the main things that you should consider if you are thinking about buying a home in one of these communities.
