55+ Real Estate Market is strong and healthy

In the United States real estate market there is a specific market segment that addresses the needs of elder persons and this market is strong and growing during the last years. This trend is expected to keep an upward trend for the future.

The demographic development shows that the population is getting steadily older and the people live longer. The children have left the homey nest and have children of their own. The group I am talking about are active people who are turning 55 and are now eligible to live in the age restricted communities. Such a market segment is not in every foreign country known and you cannot compare these complex with nursing homes. The owner of such a unit is living an active life and often belong to the active workforce in the region.

The existing units in these complexes change often quickly from one owner’s hand to the next. Therefore this market segment becomes more and more interesting for new construction developments and the developers are exploring their opportunities in this market.

The available properties in these communities – that can be a condominium or a small single family home – are in comparison to other properties very affordable. The maintenance fees in these communities are moderate. The community complexes are mostly central located and have shuttle bus services to all important place in the municipality. In the 55+ community itself there are many amenities available that make the active life of its residents very pleasant. These communities have often entertainment centers with dancing events or music performance, tennis, golf and several pool areas indoor and outdoor and much more for everyone.
