Explore the Unexpected Benefits of Living in an Active Adult Community

As more Boomers and older Gen-Xers reach retirement age, they may be thinking about downsizing or making a move to a 55+ community. However, many potential buyers in this demographic often believe they aren’t ready for an active adult neighborhood. Believe it or not, living in a subdivision like The Walk at East Village comes with quite a few unexpected advantages, even if you’re on the younger side of 50.

Want to know if an active adult community is the right fit for you? Here are a few perks you may not have considered.

Low-maintenance living

There’s a reason why they call life after retirement your “golden years”—you’ll have the opportunity to travel, try new things, and finally take advantage of that empty nest. Living in an active adult community gives you the flexibility to enjoy your dream lifestyle, all without worrying about the maintenance that comes with a traditional home.

Here at The Walk, all landscaping is handled for you, and our homes are thoughtfully designed to limit exterior upkeep. So go ahead, plan that big trip or pick up a cool hobby—when you live here, you’ll have plenty of time to do what you love.

Endless amenities for you and your loved ones

One of the biggest perks of living in a 55+ neighborhood is having easy access to on-site amenities. When you call The Walk home, you’ll be able to enjoy our spacious new Clubhouse, which offers everything from a test kitchen to a fitness center. Outside, you’ll discover our vast sports courts, dog parks, and even a community garden.

Looking for someplace to have fun with your children, grandchildren, or loved ones? Bring them to The Walk for a fun game of pickleball or an art class—it’s the perfect way to bond with them during your new season of life.

Age in place over time

Many new retirees think they have to choose between downsizing or aging in place. While there are benefits to each option, The Walk at East Village gives you the best of both worlds. We may be a 55+ community, but we offer something for residents of all ages…even if you haven’t retired yet!

There’s no such thing as being “too young” in an active adult community. In fact, moving into The Walk during your earlier retirement years will give you more independence, all without sacrificing space or the lifestyle you love. And best of all, you’ll be able to age in place over time in your new forever home!
