Active Adult Communities Offer an Extended Stay in Florida

Erb and Young Insurance provide homeowners insurance for residents of a variety of communities in Florida, and the type that we are very excited about is the active adult communities. They are very popular places to retire to in Florida because it is like going on a vacation that you never have to leave. These beautifully planned active adult communities have become the new home to many active adults that want to enjoy a safe and fun place that was designed with them in mind.  These age-restricted communities are often gated to provide greater peace of mind. They also typically limit 80% of the ownership to active adults who are over 55 years old, and this is why most age-qualified communities, are also known as 55+ communities, retirement communities or lifestyle communities that offer homes and community features that are appealing to 55+ active adults that are in good health.

Active adult communities offer many activities such as Golf in Florida

Many active adults that meet the age restrictions on ownership want to live in an area without the perceived problems of having younger children and teenagers as a permanent part of their community.  Some have residents that are retired empty nesters, who have grown children that may come to visit with their children. So, there may be children seen in the community, but they are just visiting their grandparents and not a part of these communities or their activities.

Most active adult communities feature a clubhouse or lifestyle center with a variety of activities that are arranged for their residents. The amenities usually include well maintained swimming pools, craft rooms, exercise facilities, outdoor decks, courtyards and other common areas for gathering and participating in planned activities. Each community is a little different, some have golf courses, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, dining event space, dancing, rooms to play card games together and upscale restaurants in the club houses.

Active adult communities offer many classes

The craft rooms are used daily for various activities from painting to quilting and some even offer culinary and dance lessons. Often residents have opportunities to attend professional sports events and concerts which are planned for the enjoyment of those that would like to attend life enriching events together.

The types of homes that are offered in these active adult communities usually exceed energy star standards; Trilogy by Shea Homes in the Orlando Florida area for example has Green Homes with Solar power systems. This is just one more feature that adds to having peace of mind for residents of active adult communities.  Builders such as Shea Homes have created a special division that focuses on the development of resort communities geared to the Baby Boom generation that seek a different type of community as they become empty nesters and retirees. These Active Lifestyle Communities are all about having an extraordinary lifestyle geared around wellness, discovery, and sharing fun experiences.
