Almost since its inception, snow birds flocked to Lake Havasu City during the winter.  While other cities across the country digging themselves out of snow banks, the nation's elderly population traveled to the warmer climate of Lake Havasu.  We rarely dip below the mid-60's even in the dead of winter.  But that's just one reason Lake Havasu real estate appeals to retirees.  Realtor.com compiled its Top 10 Cities to Age in Place list recently.  Lake Havasu forever homes came in at #3.  Read on to find out why.

Realtor.com added Lake Havasu Forever Homes to its Top 10 Cities to Age in Place list thanks to its affordability, climate and plethora of activities.

When adding Lake Havasu forever homes to their list, Realtor.com took several factors into consideration.  Our median sale price runs around $255,000.  We experience approximately 300 days of sunshine every year.  Over 1/4 of the population is aged 65 or older.  The lake provides plenty of opportunities for seniors to stay active.  There's also an Aquatic Center, several local golf courses, the Havasu 95 Speedway, local boutiques and several wonderful dining establishments to choose from.  If you crave something bigger than Havasu Landing Casino to get your gambling fix, Laughlin's an hour and a half drive away.  You can also putter up the river on your Sea Doo or flat bottomed boat and dock at a casino/resort there.  Stay overnight and then make your way back home on the Colorado River if you'd like.  Or visit fabulous Las Vegas located just 2.5 hours away by car.
