Find A 55+ Retirement Community Near You

When considering your retirement lifestyle, you may think about leisurely afternoon activities, daily social events or maybe a little extra help for things like cleaning the house and tending to the yard. You may think that to achieve this you must relocate or get on the waitlist for some local independent living center. But, in reality, this convenient, retirement community lifestyle is available throughout the U.S. at a great price with senior mobile home parks. Most likely, there’s one near you and in your budget.

The many benefits of living in a retirement community appeal to many adults, whether single, married or living with a friend. There are many of these beautiful 55+ communities that cater to a variety of individual preferences. Some are on the water, others cater to golfers, and others have miles of trails, civic outings and whatever else you may imagine.

Here are a few of the biggest draws for retirees looking to settle into a safe, comfortable life in a 55+ retirement community.

A Built-In Social Scene

Want to move to a place where you are automatically entering a group of likeminded adults, where organized clubs and social outings are abundant? It doesn’t take reaching retirement age to understand that a vital ingredient to physical and mental health is regular, highly regarded social involvement. Study after study shows a big, beneficial connection between aging and socializing. If you want to exercise with friends or dream of joining a supper club, there’s a good chance you’ll find it.

Recreation in Your Backyard

In addition to socializing, you can benefit greatly from daily exercise. Though only one in four seniors exercises regularly, this population as much as any needs regular exercise. When you browse the many mobile homes for sale on our website, you’ll see retirement community amenities that include pools, tennis courts, and shuffleboard courts that help keep residents active.

A Low-Maintenance Lifestyle

The common areas of a retirement community — the front gate, community gardens, walking and recreation paths — will be maintained for you at no added cost. In addition, many retirement communities offer upgrade packages for mowing, weeding and other lawn maintenance on the property surrounding your home. Note that homes are designed to be easily maintained, with affordable, uniform parts you can order in minutes. And a smaller abode means less to maintain, less to decorate, furnish and worry about in general.

No Apartment-Dwelling Woes

When you live in a manufactured home community, you rent or buy a residence of your own.  You don’t share walls with neighbors and have a private yard to use. In condos and apartments, the close proximity to neighbors often means unwanted noise and less privacy. It may also mean no designated parking space, no patio, porch or garden. Mobile homes provide a great amount of independence and privacy. A mobile home retirement community provides the best of both worlds. It gives residents the privacy of a residential home with the lower maintenance and social components of apartment or condo living. Yet, it’s more affordable than both.

Accessibility Is Given

Mobile homes generally are single-story and easily can take an access ramp or modified entry. If you have your eyes set on a new manufactured home floor plan you can have it designed with easy entry showers and tubs, for instance, and lower the height of kitchen and washroom surfaces. It’s nothing more than a conversation with your retailer if modified entry, access and adaptability requirements are what you need to be able to settle into your ideal mobile home.
