How to Find the Best 55+ Community for You

November 28, 2022

The idea of living in a retirement community may not sound like the ideal living situation for everyone. However, 55 and over communities are more than just senior living; they’re genuine communities where you can make friends and access amenities you may not find elsewhere. If you’re interested in a new living situation, here’s how to choose a 55+ community that will suit all your needs. 

Find the Right Location

If you’re like many people in their mid to late 50s, you’ll likely want to live near family. Finding a community that is in the same state or city allows for more frequent visits and trips. At the same time, you need to consider more than just proximity to family. 

Think about the environment you want to live in—whether you want to be near a city or further out in nature. Preserve at Marsh Creek in Chester Springs has nature, recreation, shopping, restaurants and all the modern conveniences you could ask for.

If you’re moving into a 55+ community, chances are high that it may be your last big move, so it’s crucial to find a community that has everything you need and want. Make a list of these wishes to help your search. You may want an onsite recreation center, pool, walking paths, clubhouse and more. Additionally, think about the kind of community you want to live in. For example, a community like Preserve at Marsh Creek has a lively clubhouse with amazing amenities and plenty of group activities. 

Set a Budget

Retirement communities vary just as much as standard housing. In any given city you can find mansions built for multimillionaires and modest townhomes built for working-class families. As you look at options in the area where you want to live, be mindful of what you can afford. Consider making a budget before beginning your search to sift through the available communities quickly. 

Consider Housing Options

Various 55+ communities will offer several types of living. You may find communities that have single-family homes, townhouses, apartments and more. As you begin to look for possible communities, keep an eye out for different floor plan options and home sizes. 

The McKee Builders Preserve at Marsh Creek 55+ community is the perfect place to find your dream home. Choose from five different floor plans, each offering 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in beautiful Chester County.
