Generally speaking, retirement communities are classed one of two ways – either ‘age targeted’, or ‘age restricted’. Age restricted retirement communities simply do not allow anyone younger than 55 to purchase a home and may have some extremely strict rules on how long family members of certain ages may visit. An age-targeted retirement community will not restrict the purchase of a home from an interested buyer younger than 55, although the amenities and demographics will be vastly geared to retirees. Either way you choose, you will undoubtedly have the opportunity to interact with new people with whom you share common ground, interests, and activities, while enjoying a retirement lifestyle you’ve always wanted!Learn more at San Diego 55 Communities
