When you decide it is time to retire from your current lifestyle with too many responsibilities concerning your habitat and want to spend more time relaxing and enjoying life—whatever that means to you, you may want to consider an Active Adult 55+ Community to buy a home in Tampa Bay. Keep in mind though, that the average age that lives in these communities is around 65 years old. If you have a mate, then only 1 of you has to be 55 years old or older in order to purchase a home in an Active Adult 55+ Community. You don’t have to be retired from work, although many are.

There are many things to consider before you choose an Active Adult 55+ because you want this community to be part of a whole lifestyle that offers more than the community itself. Some things that could be important to you are before you buy a home in Tampa Bay Active Adult 55+ Community:
  • Universities, Colleges nearby for intellectual stimulation for you or those around you.
  • Outdoor recreation/entertainment beyond the confines of your community for weekend trips, special adventures or when the kids come to visit
  • Beautiful environment to suit your preferences—beaches, sunsets, walking trails through forests
  • Healthcare centers nearby that meet your needs
  • Cultural and lifestyle environment that will stimulate you and encourage your continued mental acuity, like libraries, museums, cultural centers.
  • Steady and handy conveniences like availability of groceries and food that suit your eating habits as well as type of restaurants you will enjoy. 

So you have decided on a MASTER PLANNED COMMUNITY as your new home purchase in Tampa Bay that offers all the amenities inside your community so you don’t have to travel far for lifestyle enjoyment.

  • These master communities offer a wide range of amenities some including clubhouse or lifestyle center with exercise, swimming pools, party kitchens and rooms for gathering with friends, family and neighbors and game rooms. Some offer tennis and golf, boating and plenty of walking opportunities within the community. If staying indoors is your style, you will want your Active Adult 55+ Community to offer hobby classes with craft rooms, art classes, cooking classes, perhaps a theatre or musical group.
