Good reasons a retirement community might be right for you

Retirement can be a very exciting time in one’s life. Being retired means that you no longer have to deal with the stress of working, finally you have escaped the rat race for good. You can just relax and do the things you couldn’t do before because you were tied down by your job. But being retired doesn’t mean that you have to become inactive.

Being Healthy: Mind & Body

A great option that many people are now deciding to explore is active adult living communities. Moving into one of these communities can be very beneficial in several ways. Being around people your same age will increase the chances that you will have things in common. This will help to keep you healthy both mentally and physically. Being active is a good way to live a happy and long life.

Make New Friends

Being in a community of likeminded people allows you to share interests. Making new friends is a great way to broaden your outlook on the world and find new exciting things to try. Living in an active adult living community is a lifestyle that is full of possibilities. Can you imagine the fun things that you and your new friends could do together? Dancing, going to dinner or to the movies and sharing hobbies are just a few of the things that people in adult communities do together.

Feel Secure

Another great reason to choose an active living community is the amount of security that it provides. The old saying that there is safety in numbers is true. In this type of community everyone looks out for one another. These tight net little communities have very low crime rates compared to a traditional neighborhood. This means that you don’t have to worry about break ins or other violent crimes as much. A sense of security is a vital part of being happy. There are many adult living communities around the country and buying real estate is really easy and very affordable. Selling your traditional home and purchasing real estate inside of an adult community can save you lots of money. Selling your larger home and moving into a smaller unit makes perfect sense. Not only does it save you money on things like property taxes but your electric bill will be much less. Keeping a large home clean is another burden that you are not going to deal, if you move into a smaller place and it’s easy to manage. So if you are nearing retirement, you may want to think about moving into one of these wonderful communities. Changing your lifestyle can be a fun and rewarding experience.

Making The Most of Active Adult Living

If you have children there is going to be a time when you are going to be faced with the "Empty Nest Syndrome". This is when your lifestyle really begins to undergo changes that are going to make you reconsider how you will be spending the rest of your life. Some individuals feel that all that is left is to while away the hours in a rocker on their front porch. This is a common misconception about the Golden Years. During their senior years many people wonder if they will continue to experience the freedom and rewards that active adult living affords them. When you are still active and healthy there are going to be a number of goals that you want to achieve. Becoming an inactive recluse is not going to be one of your personal goals. You still have to accept the reality of the changes that have occurred in your life. Over the course of time children leave home, friends may relocate to other areas of the country and that wonderful family home may become too challenging to maintain. Even that much-loved home seems to be too big and empty. You might even have a home that is located some distance away from doctors, stores and shopping malls. You start wondering if you should make that move to a place which has a more convenient location. What you do not want is to lose any of your freedom to live your life on your own terms. Those home maintenance tasks such as repairing a door, replacing floor tiles or mowing the lawn can be overwhelming to individuals who have reached retirement age. Even the routine cleaning of a large family residence can prove problematic. In many instances there are basement stairs or multiple living levels that add to the challenge of dusting, vacuuming and waxing the floors. Downsizing can be a solution but then you have to wonder what type of real estate purchase is going to best suit the needs and financial budget of active seniors. The changing lifestyle of older individuals means that they now have to consider their personal needs as being a top priority. Instead of searching for a good school district they have other features that they should place at the top of their list. With retirement comes time to enjoy a quality life that is centered on your personal hobbies, interests and desires. If you have always wanted to spend time relaxing at the beach then why not search for an adult community that offers homes near an ocean or lake? You can find a number of retirement properties that feature spectacular views and scenic landscapes. Some also include additional features such as golf courses, tennis courts and walking trails. The major difference is that these homes and apartments are designed to accommodate couples instead of families. The living space has been scaled back so comfort and convenience are highlighted. Residents can spend their time indulging in sports and other community activities instead of worrying about home maintenance or yard-work. You will not have to give up your independence when you choose to live in a community that embraces every aspect of active adult living. The only things you will be giving up are the mundane chores and time-consuming work so often associated with traditional home ownership. Why not discover the many benefits that an active senior lifestyle has to offer by visiting an upscale retirement property today?

Tips To Increase Your Home's Value

If you live in sunny Florida and want to increase your home's value, there are numerous ways to go about it. Some are a bit pricey, while others can easily be done on a budget. Kitchen The kitchen is the one room in your house where just about any renovation can increase your home’s value. Nice new stainless steel appliances will upgrade your kitchen more than you could even imagine. If that’s something you can afford, you should definitely go for it. A large percentage of potential homebuyers list them as one of their primary must-have when house-hunting. One of the least expensive ways to update your kitchen and increase your home's value is a new coat of paint. Choose a fairly neutral color that will appeal to a broad range of homebuyers for the most bang for your buck. A new back-splash can also add value and appeal, and there are so many new materials out there for every taste. If you are even a little bit handy, then a DIY glass mosaic tile or a subway tile could be right up your alley and will increase your home's value for little money. New countertops are another great way to update your kitchen for added value. Buyers these days are partial to granite, quartz, or marble, but that old standby, butcher block, still raises value as well for less money. In a pinch, laminate that looks like granite could increase your home's value as well, but not as much as a hard surface countertop. Outdated lighting can bring down the value as well, so consider pot lights or pendant lights for your kitchen. Bathroom Bathrooms are another area of your home where any renovation, large or small, will increase your home’s value. New tiles, countertops, or flooring could go a long way toward that increase in value. If your budget is limited, even new paint, up-to-date lighting and window coverings can help. Light And, don’t forget that an abundance of natural light will increase your home's value, so letting it in can be an inexpensive way to accomplish that increase you’re looking for. Putting in larger windows or even French doors can make a big difference. Don’t underestimate your window treatments either. New window treatments that let in more light are a good inexpensive option. If your budget will allow and you don't already have them, installing energy efficient windows throughout your home will increase your home's value exponentially. Appearance Curb appeal can increase your home's value as well, so consider a new coat of paint and some new landscaping that will make your home more appealing to buyers. Patch and possibly resurface that old worn driveway, and make sure walkways are free from cracks, weeds and grass. Never underestimate the value of good curb appeal.

Why Florida Is A Great Location For Adult Communities

Florida has slowly but surely proven itself to be the perfect location for many active adult communities. Our aging generation needs a place to stay; a place where they can be provided with the best care possible, and a place where they can still maintain their independence while being active and amongst others who share the same interests. There is no better destination than the Florida adult communities. Here are a few reasons as to why this region is proving to be the best in this sector: 1. Affordable living Florida communities offer some of the best deals when it comes to adult communities. The fees vary from community to community, but you will find the average monthly maintenance fee to be a little less than $300. This is for a wonderful community that accords the aging as many amenities as possible including great weather. 2. Wonderful weather As people get older, their body's immune system gets weaker. This can often be exacerbated by bad weather. In Florida, the weather is almost always sunny and even the cold winter months aren't as bad as it is in the rest of the country. These adult communities reside in a place with wonderful warm weather where residents can take long, frequent, leisurely walks and enjoy nature. 3. Great security This is one thing that stands out with most adult communities in Florida, the security is top notch. Most of these communities are gated and often have a Red Cross center nearby so that the residents can be kept safe. 4. Amazing amenities If there is one thing Florida is known for, it is luxury. This accompanies the great weather. Florida adult communities often come with amazingly wonderful amenities such as heated pools, large clubhouses, spas, mowed lawns, and very scenic views; if not of the ocean then of the surrounding landscape. It is a paradise in its own right. 5. Activities and entertainment There is always something going on in Florida. Be it within the community or just nearby, residents always have a long list to choose from when it comes to entertainment. That is because this is a thoroughly metropolitan city with many cultures fusing together to form an interesting and invigorating mix. There is something for everybody. Adult communities need to be somewhere safe, fun, with great amenities and wonderful weather. This is what Florida offers to the adult communities situated within its borders.

The Top Benefits Of Living In Active Adult Communities

The number of people subscribing to Active Adult Communities are on the increase. The National Association of home Builders estimates that by 2014 this type of community will cater for approximately 46 million households. Active Adult Communities offers senior citizens the opportunity to live an independent lifestyle in a unique environment. When compared to other housing options, Active Adult Communities boasts far greater benefits. Here are some benefits of Active Adult Communities. No Stairs As you get older, the chances of falling increase. According to the National Safety Council, 54% of all falling injuries sustained by seniors occur at home. Stairs increase the likelihood of you falling. Active Adult Communities feature single story homes which means the chances of you falling down the staircase and fracturing your limbs are drastically reduced. In addition, if you suffer from arthritis or have problems with your knees, you don't have to endure the arduous task of climbing stairs. Like-minded Neighbors Because Active Adult Communities are geared towards seniors, then you do not need to worry that your neighbors will be a young married couple with screaming children or teenagers who blare loud obscene music in the absence of their parents. In Active Adult Communities there is a high probability that your neighbors will share similar interests and views. Studies have shown that living in a community of individuals who are like-minded can enhance your life and promote satisfaction and motivation. Resort Atmosphere Recreational facilities such as golf courses, spas, heated swimming pools, whirlpool tubs and saunas are in close proximity. The availability of these facilities as well as planned recreational activities promote a resort atmosphere and may give you the feeling that you are on permanent vacation. No Pool or Yard Maintenance Say goodbye to mowing the lawn and cleaning the pool as these activities are done for you. You also get the gratification of seeing well manicured grounds and meticulous, shared spaces. The best thing is you don't have to lift a finger. Freedom For Fun Living in a family home can be quite restrictive because all of the maintenance requirements. Active Adult Communities gives you the freedom to do the things that you want to do. Because you make a monthly contribution to cover maintenance costs such as mowing, trimming the edges and sweeping walkways, you will have more time to do the things you like. Whether it's swimming, playing a game of golf or doing art classes, this type of community will enable you to pursue your interests. Active Adult Community benefits are making it a preferred option for seniors these days. This type of community enhances your lifestyle and offers you the freedom to do the things that you like.
