Active Adult Communities in Cumming

By
Real Estate Agent DRE #337069

Active Adult Communties are on the rise in Cumming, GA - this could be due to retirees are stopping short of Florida. The Atlanta Metro area is rated #4 as top places to retire. Some of the reasons are a favorable climiate (we do have seasonal changes but have mild weather), low cost of living, good tax stitutation and there is a large volunteer mindset.

But what are the advantages to living in an Active Adult Community? All exterior maintaince is included in the monthly HOA dues, even with single family dwellings, the lawn and sometimes exterior repairs of the home are taken care of.  Most of the homes are single level and have handicap access throughout the homes. Residents are restricted to age 55 and over which allow like minded individuals to live close to each other and take advantage of benefits tailored specifically to them.

Active Adult Communities offer such amenities as pools, activity centers, walking trails, sometimes golf courses and tennis courts but also  a continuous  and varied calendar of entertainment and social  opportunties, such as  special interest closses, performances, recreational programs, day trips, etc.

The initial cost of buying into one of these communities is usually the same as buying a home in this area, however the monthly HOA is usually slightly higher due to the maintainace and amenities that each community offers.

When investigating retirement living options, it's certainly a good idea to consider communities designed specifically for active adults. While only you can decide if this lifestyle is right for you, it's certainly an option to consider. If you want a low-maintenance lifestyle that provides you with an opportunity to surround yourself with similarly situated individuals, you just might find that a community for active retirees is the perfect choice for you.

These homes are offered as attached (Wellstone Middle Creek, Muirfield at Village Orchards, Newbury Village, Tribble Gap Corners) or  detached with smaller yards (Fieldstone Court, Kingswood at Castleberry, Parkside at the Polo Fields).
