At its most basic level, “active” means independent, so active adult communities offer no assistance with daily living activities, such as meals, medication, housekeeping and personal care. They do usually present a variety of on-site activities and easy access to natural or cultural attractions, shopping, nearby medical facilities, and large metropolitan areas. According to the 2005 American Housing Survey, 85% of 55+ housing is located near or in a metropolitan area.
A quick survey of local agents seems to back up that forecast. “The resale market is hot,” says Brenda Bendis, a real estate broker at RE/MAX Unlimited in Huntley. Bendis sold the Czapiewski’s their home in Sun City. The amenity-rich lifestyle at active adult communities is a huge selling point, she says. “These homes are very desirable.”

I’m 60 and never been married. What made me chicken out was that while the sale of my place was pending, I went to a 55+ place near where I live. I think that I had mentioned before – that place had lost some appeal for me. The last time I went to visit there (about two months ago), I spoke to some people who lived at the place. They all rent, no owners. They all said (just a few I spoke to) that the people are nice and it’s quiet, but the rents are high and it keeps going up. Plus maintenance does not come to repair unless if it’s an emergency. At that complex, it’s owned (and been inherited) to a couple of children who are having a feud with each other. So they are competing with each other by building more units. The whole property has two business names, even though it’s one family.

What I don’t understand from some previous posters is that they don’t seem to like the idea that there are no kids, and people of other ages in a Senior’s complex. Why would you be want to live in a Senior’s complex if you don’t like having only seniors there? Should living at a Senior’s place be for Senior’s only? At where I live there more than enough of kids and Millennials; and I just can’t stand some of them. I feel like in living in a Senior’s place, I’d be getting away from them, or at least I would hope to. Would the younger crowd want to be around Seniors anyways?
