..55+ communities to make your dream of retirement a reality!
Listing for your convenience 55+ communities throughout the United States.
Where will your retirement community be? Country, coastal, urban, suburban? Many seniors will try out different places until they find the right one or they may already know where they want their dream place to be.
The senior or retirement years can be a time of great enjoyment as you explore, play, and learn.

Are you craving exercise to stay fit in your senior years? Don't miss our new article on Best Retirement Communities for Active Adults to find the types of activities available at 55+ communities.
We are seeing more offers such as financial or closing costs paid from 55 plus communities for incentives to buy. Be sure to ask what offers are available. It is summer when buying slows up a little while people are enjoying their vacation. Currently, we are seeing most communities continue to sell out quickly at even higher prices due to shortages of homes.
You can go to the community website of the builder and sign onto what is called a VIP List. If you are on that list, you will receive updates. (Note: If you have a Realtor you want to represent you and be paid a commission should you buy, the Realtor should register with the community before you reach out via the internet. Communities may differ on this as a policy.) The VIP List could help you stay ahead as some communities are selling out quickly from this list.
It is best to stay in touch with a community early on if you have an interest. Lower priced homes sell fastest. If you are on this list, you will be notified of when selling starts (verify all information).
What are retirement communities doing now about Covid:
Covid-19 Status: Big Changes! The best way to handle the changes is to call the community first before going. Some communities require an appointment so that they can prepare for the showing. I am noticing more communities are open without having to make an appointment.
Increased interaction online
Private appointments with agents are making it possible to purchase or rent homes. You can view the virtual showings on their website and plan what you want to view at the community before going.
While most 55+ communities have amenities for an active lifestyle, see what they can offer in this article:
We also have a new article about ADU's (accessible dwelling units) for seniors as this is trending now. More states are allowing for a small housing unit to be built in a backyard or converted garage. Contact your county for more information.
Try searching our low income housing and mobile home categories. RV park model communities, also called "tiny homes" are popular now and affordable, and if you lease the land even more affordable. This is especially so for Florida manufactured homes and other low-cost areas.
Senior RV parks can be some of the happiest places in the Snowbird Season Oct-May. Read our review of an RV Park to see the fun that can be had. It's never too soon to plan for the next season's stay.
The National Association of Realtors has news releases monthly. They give excellent updates on the real estate market and trends. Please consult with Realtors how this relates to your local market or one you are interested in and for advice.
Note: Overlapping occurs when your search fits more than one category. This happens a lot. The remedy is to check more than one category to find what you are looking for. For instance, mobile homes can be found in the mobile home, RV and manufactured categories as well as state categories.
We have a lot to view for just one visit--we hope you'll Bookmark us so you'll come back for more as our site constantly changes.
So let's get started...
