WHAT IS A 55+ COMMUNITY?
A 55+ community or retirement community or age-restricted community, are very broad, generic terms that cover many varieties of housing for retirees and seniors - especially designed or geared for people who no longer work, or restricted to those over a certain age. It differs from a retirement home which is a single building or small complex where no "common areas" for socializing exist. Many retirement communities are planned for that purpose, and have special facilities catering to the needs and wants of retirees, including extensive amenities like clubhouses, swimming pools, arts and crafts, boating, trails, golf courses, active adult retail and on-site medical facilities. Other facilities have no or very few common amenities. An Age-restricted community requires at least one household resident to be 55 plus years of age or older. For a community to register itself as 55+, it must have 80% of its units occupied by someone age 55 or older and no one under the age of 18 is allowed to live there. It does not necessarily mean that 20% of its homes can be sold to people under the age of 55.
