Newer Communities vs. Older Communities
Retirement communities come in a variety of shapes and sizes. These days new communities have a lot of bells and whistles, often including a large clubhouse with a state of the art fitness center, a resort-style swimming pool, an 18 hole championship golf course (or two or three), concierge services, transportation services, a rental program and much more. Something to keep in mind with newer communities is how the development will look when it is completely built out. And who will the residents be? Older communities often cannot match the amenities of newer ones, but they make up for that by having an established group of residents. You have a better idea what you are getting when you buy into an older development.
