You may find the idea of the settling in a 55+ community appealing!
Builders who offer this type of community continue to grow in numbers. Often referred to as adult or 55+ communities, these housing options that target this demographic will help you decide the kind of lifestyle that will make you happy for the years to come.
Just like every commitment that you need to make, I’ve chosen the following key things that you need to consider when you want to buy a home in Vero Beach 55+ communities, FL.
Be aware of their age restrictions
Numerous active adult communities have age limits set at 55 years old, others set it higher or lower. There’s a reason why Vero Beach is such a popular retirement destination. They have what it takes to cater to buyers from all walks of lifestyles.
There are some neighborhoods that require one of the homeowners to be at least 55 years old. I can lead you to the homes for all ages and those who have no limits at all.
Exclusive rules to follow
There is an association that constitutes what’s restricted and the total structure of the rules. Some of these are:
Limit on the number of occupants in the property
Non-homeowners access to the community
Limit on home customizations such as landscaping, paint, and indoor decorations
Acceptable time for visitations from visitors under 18 years old
Some 55+ communities in Vero Beach, FL have different definitions on what qualifies a visitation from grandchildren or loved ones. It is always best to reach out to a community representative or a REALTORⓇ.
Know if the active adult lifestyle is something that fits your criteria of a new home. Think of the activities you will enjoy.
For example, Woodfield in Vero Beach is a gated adult neighborhood ideally located within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Sandy beaches, scenic golf courses, and fun filled marinas surround the area.
There are also different levels of maintenance that you need to adapt to when moving to an age-qualified area. Typically, lawn care and outdoor maintenance are provided.
Services and fees
Find out if you need to pay monthly or annual fee and compare what they are and what you get in return.
Some of these are maintenance fees, either budgeted or HOA fees, amortization fees, utilities, parking fees, and accommodations.
Check out the medical care
Do Vero Beach 55+ communities provide medical services? Indian River Medical Center is just one of the many medical facilities located here. If there are no nearby health care centers, check how far you need to travel.
