Pros & Cons of Living in a Jacksonville Active Adult Community

When making your decision about where to retire, consider both the pros and cons to living in a Jacksonville active adult community. 

The Advantages 

No need to worry about landscaping. When you live in an active adult community, the HOA handles all of the landscaping and exterior maintenance of your home. Homeownership can be a tremendous undertaking, but living in a neighborhood for active adults makes it so much easier.

You can enjoy the amenities. Living in many active adult communities can feel like you’re living at a vacation resort all-year round. Some of the most popular amenities include pools, fitness centers, clubhouses, golf courses, access to lakes, craft rooms, and on-site restaurants. Sometimes it’s hard to find reasons to leave home!

Live at a slower pace. When you live in an active adult community, you can truly find peace in a slower way of life. It’s easier to relax when you’re surrounded by other like-minded people.

The Disadvantages 

HOA fees can be costly. Unlike owning a home in a traditional neighborhood, owning a home in an active adult community requires you to pay HOA fees that cover the needs of the community, fund amenities, and pay for upkeep to your home. While some communities have fairly low HOA fees, others– especially those with the most or fanciest amenities– can have exorbitant HOA fees.

Changes to your home will have to be approved. If you wish to make changes to your home, they’ll have to be approved by the HOA. A lot of active adult communities have guidelines and restrictions on how residents may or may not alter the interior and exterior of their homes.

Lack of age diversity. Many people enjoy being around others of all ages. Living in an active adult community means that you will be surrounded by people age 55 and older most of the time.
