RETIRING IN SANTA CRUZ - 55+ ACTIVE ADULT & SENIOR COMMUNITIES IN SANTA CRUZ

 

Why retire to Santa Cruz?  There are a myriad of reasons to live in Santa Cruz at any age.  We have fantastic weather, plenty of fun community events, tons of outdoor activities like golfing, hiking, sailing, fishing, standup paddle boarding, surfing, mountain biking, yoga . . .  Living in Santa Cruz you can enjoy an active lifestyle in a geographically gorgeous place with a great community feel.

If you are retiring to Santa Cruz there are some 55+ Adult Communities here.  One great senior  55+ condo complex is Piedmont Court on the Westside of Santa Cruz.   Piedmont Court is a historic building built in 1912 which consists of single level, 1 bedroom condos for people over 55.

 In Watsonville we have the "Adult Village" which is an area of single level homes for seniors over 55+.  These senior homes are now selling for around $200,000.

There are several senior 55+ mobile home parks in Santa Cruz.  Some of my favorites are ones where you own the land or it is owned as a co-op, you do not lease.  These are Sorrento Oaks, close the the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor, Tradewinds Park on Jade St in Capitola.

If you are over 55+ but do not necessarily want to live in a senior community and you are looking for affordable homes in Santa Cruz there are some options.  There are Santa Cruz single level homes for sale in all price ranges and there are some great single level condos that are very affordable.  You can now find nice condos in Santa Cruz priced under $300,000 

If you are a senior (55+) and own a home in Santa Cruz and are looking to downsize, it may be possible to transfer your tax base, which can save you a lot of money.  Read my article:  Transferring your property tax base in Santa Cruz county

Jessica ~ Thinking about Santa Cruz, takes me back to the early '80's when we used to go to "The Tubes", by UCSC.

Jessica, I truly love to visit Santa Cruz.  Used to take my son and daughter there on our way to San Francisco every summer, to visit their aunt and uncle.  They love to go to the pier and hang out.

My grandparents – bless their departed souls – retired to Aptos years ago. They bought a 2 bedroom, 1 bath home within walking distance of the beach. I loved to visit them. After my grandfather’s death, my grandmother never set foot in the home again and sold it complete with furnishings right down to the pots and pans.
