Active adult neighborhoods provide a sense of community with other like-minded adults in a welcoming and friendly setting. Baby Boomers can mingle and share their hobbies with others by participating in card clubs, writing groups, fitness classes, or faith-based studies for a robust social lifestyle while fostering lifelong friendships. Another reason why retirees are choosing to move into active adult communities is to be close to family. Additionally, the majority of age-restricted developments are built near prime locations like Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest. There is usually easy access to highways and medical facilities as well as entertainment, shopping, and dining options.
Premier builders like Del Webb, AV Homes, Epcon Communities, Toll Brothers, Lennar, and others offer floor plans that cater to 55+ citizens by including features like zero-step entries, wide doorways, single-level homes, and energy-efficient construction.
