55+ Community in Delaware County PAAre There 55 Plus Communities in Delaware County, PA?

Are you thinking of downsizing now that your children have moved out and are on their own raising their own families, and you want to stay in Delaware County?

Are you looking to move to Delaware County to be closer to your children but do not want the responsibility of yard work and outside house maintenance with your new home and want to be around mostly adults?

Do you just want to move into a community for adults in your age group?

Well you are in luck. 
Delaware County has a variety of communities that are age restricted for people 55 years and older.  These communities range in style from condos, to townhouses, to one-story ranch houses, to two story single carriage houses.  Delaware County pretty much has all these style houses covered.  There is even a mobile home community for people 55 years and older.

There is a wide range in prices to purchase a home in one of these communities.  At this time prices can range from just around $20,000 to just under around $990,000 for a house located in an age restricted community.

Many of these communities are located close to Public Transportation and shopping areas. 

Association Fees vary in price and what is covered.  One of the main benefits of Association Fees are the snow and leaf removal and sometimes fees will include utilities. 

If you are a pet owner, make sure you find out which community allows pets.  Some may allow dogs, but may have a weight restriction.

If you are looking to downsize or want to relocate to Delaware County, PA and want to live in a community that caters to people 55 years and older, we can help you in your search.

Good information for seniors. Maybe we should be looking for ourselves! Be sure to advise your senior clients on the benefits of reverse mortgages when you see the need.

We really enjoy visiting Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square on a regular basis.

 The colors of winter in Maryland. Life is good!
