Sarasota has been recognized time and time again as the best place to retire in the United States. With a favorable cost of living, cultural attractions, waterfront recreation, and year-round warm weather, many baby boomers are trading in their northern homes for low-maintenance living by the beach.
You’ll find a number of neighborhoods in Sarasota designed with 55+ seniors in mind - offering a carefree lifestyle and attractive amenities from pools to fitness clubs and golf courses. A variety of housing types appeal to residents that include single-family homes, condominiums, and townhomes.
Some of the most notable Active Adult communities in the Sarasota area include Esplanade at Lakewood Ranch, Esplanade By Siesta Key, Gran Paradiso, Island Walk, Isles of Sarasota, Sandhill Preserve, and Village Walk.
Properties in these communities come in various price ranges to cater to homebuyers of different budgets. Locations are widely varied, as well, giving relocating seniors many options when it comes to the neighborhood and the surrounding attractions and amenities.
One of the best things about living in an active adult community is the maintenance-free lifestyle. You don’t have to worry about tending the lawn or fixing the roof – the property management will take care of that for you.
Plus, you get to be around people who are more or less the same age and share the same interests as you. Being surrounded by kindred spirits is considered by many as the top reason for moving to an active adult community.
