Active adult communities–otherwise known as 55+ communities–have exploded in popularity in recent years, as evident by the multitude of active adult communities cropping up across the country. Though all 55+ communities are, by strict definition, the same–a community for residents over the age of 55–anyone who has done their research will tell you that not all active adult communities are created equal.
It’s important that the active adult community you choose complements your lifestyle and interests, but generally speaking, residents look for the following factors in a great 55+ community:
1. Ideal location. You know what they say–“location, location, location!” The best community features won’t make up for a community that isn’t located in the best area. And what makes a “good” area? That depends on what you value.
For our residents at The Villages at Two Rivers, convenience is key, and that’s why they love our location in the heart of Maryland. Situated in Crofton, residents enjoy easy access to Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
2. Fabulous amenities. They’re called “active” adult communities for a reason! Amenities galore keep 55+ residents entertained, happy and never bored. Analyze the amenities offered, to ensure it’s a good fit with your lifestyle! At The Villages at Two Rivers, residents can can indulge in our new Village Club, complete with a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor and outdoor pool, as well as miles of hiking, biking and walking trails and tennis courts. Additional new and exciting features are underway, including an Agricultural and Environmental Park.
3. Stunning new homes. An ideal location and fabulous amenities are great, but at the end of the day you want to relax in a home you love. For our residents, that’s where Classic Group, NVHomes and Ryan Homes come in. Our builders offer beautiful homes with upgraded modern features and spacious layouts that residents love.
Many aspects come together to make active adult communities great–but the secret to a truly special community are the residents. The lifelong bond you form with neighbors and friends is truly something special, and these relationships are what make 55+ communities so wonderful!
