Trends among 55 Communities in Central FL
The growth in the number of 55 communities in Central Florida is unlikely to slow or stop anytime soon. As more members of the baby boom generation (born between 1946 and 1964) reach retirement age, there will continue to be a demand in the Sunshine State for not just real estate but purpose-driven communities featuring easily accessible, centralized amenities and age-appropriate activities happening throughout the week. Despite increased competition from other Sunbelt states, Florida attracts far more relocating retirees than any other state in the country. The popularity of 55 communities in Central FL should come as no surprise, as Florida boasts a wealth of advantages that older adults naturally seek, such as abundant sunshine, mild winters, low taxes and housing costs, quality healthcare, and close proximity to world-class beaches regardless of where in the state you happen to be. The best 55 communities are managed by developers who thoroughly understand the importance of being able to downsize yet still maintain a high quality of life for many older adults. As the very nature of retirement changes, these communities will serve an important niche demand for affordably priced, low-maintenance housing that’s coupled with an active lifestyle and lots of convenient amenities.
