Why a mobile home community is perfect for retirees

When nearing the age of 65, people face the big question of how to live life after retirement. Gone are the days of working a nine-to-five job, gaining the freedom to spend the hours, however they want.

And right now, more and more Americans reach the retirement age. According to a study by Pew Research Center, around 10,000 baby boomers—or those born between 1946 and 1964—turn 65 per day.

However, not all have prepared for retirement. GOBankingRates conducted a survey in 2016, and results showed that one out of three Americans has not saved up for retirement while six out of 10 people only have less than $10,000 in their bank accounts.

But that doesn’t mean people can’t enjoy their retirement years. Mobile home communities offer a chance to spend your retirement comfortably without the high upkeep so you can enjoy the better things in life.

A mobile home retirement community is the way to go

A retirement community targets a very niche market of adults aged 55 and up. This kind of community offers amenities and services that cater to this niche market, making it an ideal place to enjoy their leisure years.

Retirement mobile home parks have been a go-to option to settle down. Mobile home communities offer the chance to spend their final years in comfort and enjoyment with extra money for hobbies, travel, and entertainment.

Here are some reasons why mobile home communities are your best bet for a great retired life.

Cost

Mobile homes, or manufactured homes, are often a lower-cost option than stick-built houses. They cost less per square foot. This is because these structures are prefabricated in a factory and are delivered to the site of the homeowner’s choice—whether it’s on their own land or leased in a mobile home community.

Location

Over 55 communities are usually located in areas with warmer climates and excellent neighborhood facilities. This allows residents to enjoy outdoor activities to keep a healthy lifestyle and access to many activities and services, such as healthcare.

Amenities

Retirement communities offer various and exclusive amenities to keep residents strong and healthy. These include exercise classes, educational courses, and recreational activities.

Maintenance

Buying or renting in a retirement community comes with monthly fees. But don’t fret! These monthly fees will cover homeowner maintenance so you won’t have to worry about keeping your outdoor space clean.

Safety

Retirement communities are gated and have limited or controlled entry points and exits. Moreover, homes are far from the main streets, allowing for a safe environment for its residents.
