Resort Style to High Rise: How Do You Decide?

Navigating the active adult living housing market is like choosing between your favorite menu items, do you want the swimming pool, your own golf club, or the Friday night happy hour? Many offer it all, some are simplistic. Age targeted, or age restricted is a matter of personal preference whether you’d rather be surrounded by your age peers, or hang out with the younger generation. What these lifestyle communities do have in common is nobody’s sitting around, and if a vacation every day of the week is your idea of a good time, there are plenty of options for that too. If you asked most homeowners how they’re enjoying their retirement, they’ll probably say retiree status is on the far distant horizon. These folks are on-the-go whether they’re out hiking, dancing, or training for the Tour De France, so rocking chairs are pretty much obsolete.

New Hampshire Makes the Honor Roll for Retirees

New Hampshire captures the best of New England with its scenic beauty and unbeatable quality of life that has moved it to the number one spot for retirees according to a Bankrate survey. Known for friendly people, and endless recreation, the Granite State has so much to offer active adults with a passion for history, and outdoor living. Newsmax named Enfield, Portsmouth, Concord, and Manchester the most popular cities in New Hampshire to retire, and with low cost of living, and no income tax, retirees will appreciate the affordable lifestyle. New Hampshire was named the 3rd safest state by U.S News & World Report, provides high-quality healthcare, and health nuts get ready to unite because this part of the country has some of the best hiking in New England.

Master Planned Communities Build Balance

Coming home is more than what’s behind the front door. The innovation behind a master planned community takes into account how residents want to live, and play that goes beyond building four walls. Designed with a vibrant, active lifestyle in mind, builders have created these beautiful cityscapes to provide everything from shopping to spa services for the ultimate all-in-one experience.

Unlike a traditional neighborhood that may not have a gym nearby, a playground for the grandkids, or convenient drugstore, master-planned communities are thoughtfully designed to provide an all-inclusive lifestyle. Designers of these infrastructures know residents want to hit the gym without having to warm up the car and have plenty of open spaces to safely walk the dog, use the swimming pool, and run errands without having to commute. The idea of a “members only” neighborhood helps maintain the integrity of a community by restricting access to the general public creating a safe, and close-knit environment.
