San Diego 55 Plus Retirement Communities
55 plus retirement communities are very popular for younger San Diego County seniors.
In a 55+ neighborhood everyone is at least 55 years of age or older, but there are no meals, amenities or assistance given.
55 plus neighborhoods can be condominiums, single family homes, or mobile/manufactured homes. San Diego County has all categories.
(Purchasing a single family home is different than purchasing a mobile home. With a mobile home purchase, you buy the home and lease the land it sits on. Mobile homes are generally more affordable than single family homes.)
55+ neighborhoods do not allow children and offer a slower, yet still somewhat active, lifestyle.
55 plus retirement communities generally have common areas with some activities. Some have golf courses, swimming pools, and club houses. Some may be part of a country club.
And they almost always have HOA fees to cover roads and common area maintenance.
The majority of 55 plus retirement communities in San Diego County are in the north, both inland and coastal.
The reason they are not linked to a website is because these are residential neighborhoods, not organizations, so there is no website for their neighborhoods. A local realtor can tell you more.
