55+ Boynton Beach, Delray Beach Population being reduced

Leaving on a Jet PlaneEvery year about this time, almost all of the 55+ communities in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Lake Worth and West Palm Beach get reduced by about 40%.  It’s wonderful to have our snowbirds come in the autumn or winter but there are pluses to the population change in springtime

Two things are for sure.  With the population reduction

     You can probably drive to your destination in half the time
     You can probably get into you favorite restaurant without a long wait

A trend that we see regarding snowbirds that at first, they spend about 3 months a year in their 55+ community.  Eventually, that expands to 4 or more months.  Eventually, after the grandkids are grown, they make their 55+ community home a full time home.

55+ communities,

We look forward to hearing from you.

Florida 55+ Lifestyle awaits you – View New York & Florida – March 2017

 

March 2017 in New York and in Florida

You never know what winter is going to be like in the Northeast.  The picture above show the extremes that can happen in just a day or two.

In 2014 and 2015, the weather in the northeast was blizzard like almost all winter long.  55+ communities thrived in the summer months that followed those winters.  In 2016 and 2017, the winters were mild.  The 55+ summer season was much slower.

This year, the winter has been mild for the most part but the picture above shows how mother nature can turn on a dime.

Who knows what the 55+ community season will be like in the summer months.  Hopefully, it will be active.

If you ever get tired of the ups and downs of Northeast Winter Weather, the third picture above displays what Florida is like all year long.

A Florida 55+ Active Adult Lifestyle awaits.  There are plenty of 55+ homes for sale in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and all of Palm Beach County.  If you’ve been considering a permanent or snowbird move to Florida, watch the video below.  It shows the 55+ lifestyle that we enjoy all year long.

About 55+ Communities in Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton and More

Can you believe it, there are more than seventy 55+ active adult communities in Palm Beach County, Florida. Each one is different.  There are variations in size, (from just over 100 to over 2,000), year built (from the 1970’s right up to today), amenities (to old and few, to state of the art), and clubs (most have anywhere from 40 to 50 different clubs).  Some offer a combination of Single Family Homes, Villas, Coach Homes and Condos while others offer Single Family Homes only. Prices ranges from below $60,000 to over $800,000. The personalities of each of the communities are varied, each one has it’s own flavor.  Some are more warm and welcoming than others but all in all, they all offer plenty for those over the age of 55.

Things that most Over 55 Communities have in common are:

  • ·     A reduction in school taxes
    ·     Residents share a common age group. (Over 55)

    ·     Most communities offer several amenities and clubs.

    .  55+ Active Adult Communities have clubhouses, pools, tennis courts, card and billiards rooms, arts and crafts and clubs galore

Advantages of the 55+ lifestyle include:

1.   Living in a 55+ community as opposed to an all age community allows us to get to know your neighbors, to socialize and to create new friendships.  People are there for each other in times of need.

2.  Enjoying a diversity of people, where they’re from, their backgrounds and professions. There is a mix of persons from all walks of life.

3.  Do it all in one place. In addition to all of the amenities, there are also multiple clubs and groups to join.  You’ll enjoy everything from ballroom dance lessons, Zumba, Golf, Tennis, Writing, Arts and Crafts, card games, billiards mens and womens clubs plus many other choices.  Of course you can lounge out by the pool  Engage in all that you want and say no to those you don’t.  Everybody understands and if your answer is no, it’s no big deal.

4. Maintenance Free Living plus security is part of what is offered in most 55+ communities.  Whether we go on vacation or stay home and relax, it’s nice to know that everything around us is being taken care of and protected.  Common areas and individual properties look great and the best thing is that we don’t have to do the work.

5.  For those that are 55+, it’s all about you.  Whether your retired, working part or full time, there’s plenty to do.  I am still working full time.  The times I’m not working, I can either involve myself in activities that I enjoy, socialize or I can decide to just relax. Whichever I decide, it’s all good.

If you’re over 55 consider an Over 55 Lifestyle…

You Deserve It.

55+ Lifestyle is like going back to Camp

When my wife informed (told) me that we were moving to a 55+ community I wasn’t sure if I was going there to live or to die.  I knew nothing about 55+ communities.

I’ve now lived in the 55+ community of Villaggio for the past 12 years.  Villaggio is an Active Adult Community in Palm Beach County Florida.  Many of us refer to it as Camp Villaggio.  As it turns out, I absolutely love it.  I’ve developed a passion for sharing about the lifestyle of living in a 55+ community. Almost all of my blogs are about this subject.  These communities are also known as Active Adult Communities or 55 plus communities.

There is no other lifestyle like there is in a 55+ community.  It’s an exciting lifestyle for those in their 50’s and well into their 80’s or more.  Living in an Active Adult Community is like going back to camp again.  You can think of 55+ living as resort style living which makes you feel like you are on vacation all the time.

For those who have come of age and are ready for a lifestyle change, Active Adult Communities allow you to enjoy new experiences, new scenery, new activities where most of your neighbors are probably at the same stage of life as you.

They’re called “Active” Adult Communities for a reason. The club house is generally the hub of organized social activities.  Everything is right there.  Most (not all) Active Adult Community amenities include:
Bocci Ball
Tennis Courts
Computer Lab / Library
Arts & Crafts
Card Rooms
Social Hall – Grand Ballroom with Stage
Dance and/or Aerobics Studio
Fitness Center
Spa
Indoor and/or Outdoor Pools
Café
Clubhouse

You can also join any of the many clubs and special interest groups. And if there’s not one to suit your fancy, you can start one of your own.

Many Social Activities will give you the opportunity to meet new friends of similar ages and interests and offer an immediate sense of belonging.  Most communities are gated and most have security patrols, which offers protection and a feeling of security.

Palm Beach County has more than seventy Active Adult Communities that offer Active Adult Lifestyles.  The following link provides Delray Beach Homes for Sale, Boynton Beach Homes for Sale, Boca Raton Homes for Sale, and Lake Worth.  Here is a link to more than 40 Different Active Adult Communities including ALL of the 9 Valencia Series by GL Homes.
