Is Buying a Home in a 55-Plus Community a Good Investment?

About a dozen seniors relaxing in a pool or in poolside lounge chairs in front of a large clubhouseAs with any financial decision, there are pros and cons to buying a retirement home in a Central Florida community for those 55 and older. On the pro side, real estate values are escalating at a fast pace throughout the central region of the Sunshine State, which has long been one of the top havens for retirees who want to spend their newfound free time indulging their recreational desires year-round. On the flip side, if you decide to sell your home in a 55-plus community, you’ll have a more limited pool of potential homebuyers due to the age restrictions than you would if you bought a home in a community that houses people of all ages.

However, measuring the value of an investment doesn’t always come down to dollars and cents. In addition to resale value, you’ll also want to consider the rewards you’ll reap by living where you want, in a home you love that’s conveniently located near the many attractions that Central Florida has to offer.
