55+ Communities

 

Here in Florida, we have a large community of retirees. And we are proud of that. This is one of the most popular retirement destinations in the country. And why shouldn’t it be? We have spectacular weather year-round, a tropical backdrop and lifestyle, beautiful real estate, no income tax and more spectacular restaurants than you can swallow! Did we mention several cruise ship ports and international airports within an hour’s drive?

We also have a large number of communities that are designed to fit the needs and lifestyle of this market segment. These communities are known as “55+ communities” as most of them require residents to be 55 or older to live there. These communities are very popular as they typically offer more amenities and activities than other communities.

It is legal (just trust us on that, we’ll spare you the legal mumbo jumbo) for communities to restrict residency based on age. The law states that if they market the community as 55+, then at least 80% of the residents must be 55 or older. In most of these communities, they do not allow residents under 18. But don’t worry…your grandkids can still visit!

The Silver Team specializes in the purchase and sale of properties located in 55+ communities. Whether you have a specific area in mind or are interested in waterfront, oceanfront, country club or just want to play pickleball (yes that’s a thing), we have you covered. In fact, we are so in-tune with the 55+ market we have earned our designation as a Seniors Real Estate Specialist. We are here to help you so give us a call today.
