CHICAGO: 55+ communities are combining function and fun without draining buyer's finances, and the top ones are getting noticed. 55places.com, the number one active adult community resource, announced the 25 Best Value Active Adult Communities for 2018.
To identify the best value active adult communities in America for the past year, 55places.com carefully assessed the more than 2,000 communities on its site based on home prices, homeowners association fees, the range of amenities, lifestyle opportunities, financial requirements like golf club dues, and many other factors to come up with a Top 25.
Leisure World of Maryland topped the list due to a variety of factors. The community offers great value for the dollar with condos that begin below $100K as well as attached and patio homes that range between the $100s and $500s. The community offers an impressive collection of amenities, including an optional golf course membership that allows for personal choice. Residents have access to various businesses and services peppered throughout the community, including a bank, post office, religious centers, and medical facilities. And the close proximity to Washington, D.C. makes day trips and commutes easy.
"Active adult living doesn't have to cost a fortune and amenity-rich communities shouldn't be reserved for those with more money," said 55places.com Chief Executive Officer and Founder Bill Ness. "Leisure World of Maryland and the other communities on this list prove that active adults can offer world-class amenities, great locations, and exciting lifestyle choices without breaking the bank. A quality active adult lifestyle is available to everyone, no matter their price point."
15 different states are represented on the list with three communities apiece in Florida and Arizona. However, the array of communities across the country, in states such as Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, and New York showcase the opportunities that exist for 55+ buyers looking for value in their active adult community home purchase.
