It is exciting to be in the demographic of 50+! We’ve worked hard for our piece of the American Dream. We know what we like, and we embrace the idea of our next life chapter.
Adventure awaits and we are ready. For many Americans, the next adventure is creating a lifestyle that fits their budget, their energy level and their idea of happiness. The task can seem daunting when looking across the United States for the best option, but with careful planning and prioritizing, the choices become clear.
According to the most recent United Van Lines National Movers Study, the following three states were the most popular moving destinations for people between the ages of 55—74 in 2018:
- New Mexico (43%) Cost of living is approximately 3% less than the national average and has a relatively low state income tax.
- Florida (39%) Climate, beaches, cost-of-living, no state income tax, large retiree population
- Arizona (37%) Climate, extensive selection of affordable resort communities with large retiree population
Whether it’s a permanent move, or a second home, it’s all about living the lifestyle you deserve at a cost you are comfortable with.
One housing option many people have not explored is the idea of a custom manufactured home in a resort setting. Manufactured homes offer an affordable alternative to ‘stick built’ homes—and in many cases it can be difficult to tell the difference between the two. Today’s homes are well-appointed, energy efficient and practically maintenance-free.
The communities which provide these homes are generally land-leased communities where maintenance of the grounds, pool, clubhouse, and amenities is provided by the owner. You can relax!
Activity Directors schedule year-round events for all types and talents. Residents gather and meet other Active 55+ people with similar backgrounds and interests. They can also just relax in a cabana by the heated pool. There is truly something for everyone.
Discover this affordable resort lifestyle that you may never have imagined: enjoying world-class amenities, a social life as busy as you want it to be, and an environment where you feel comfortable and safe.
It is all possible. With careful research and patience you can find – and live – the lifestyle of your dreams.
