Benefits of 55+ Communities

Many adults in their 50s, 60s, and better are interested in moving into a 55 plus community. These communities have become quite popular and for good reason: The low-maintenance lifestyle provides seniors with the ability to have an active, exciting retirement without having to worry about the maintenance of a property and the distance of city-living activities. But that’s not all there is to it. There are several benefits to living in a retirement community.


As you get better with age, you may find your role in life changing and family and friends moving away, which can make you feel isolated. Living in a community where others may have similar experiences and interests makes it easy to find friends and stay involved— there’s always someone around.


55 plus communities like Kissing Tree are usually gated and boast a staffed guardhouse at all hours of the day. Tight-knit and secure communities also add a level of safety that allows you to visit others at any time of the day or night without having to worry about encountering any trouble late at night. The locals often have a neighborly attitude and are quick to assist and look out for you.


Retirement communities are perfect for those who desire independent living without many of the typical hassles of owning a home. These communities often offer low-maintenance yard options for those who prefer not to spend much time working on their yard. Public transportation is frequently a stone’s throw away, as well as medical care. The roads inside the community are convenient for golf-cart access so you can take easy trips to your neighbor’s home and the local social events, amenities, and community buildings. And with all the restaurants and food-related events available, you don’t have to cook if you don’t want to.


You’ll never get bored in a 55-plus community. The entertainment options will be plentiful and will include a golf course, a fitness center, pools, an amphitheater, a dog park, a barbecue pit, fire pits, a coffee bar, several easy sports activities, picnicking spots, and more. Plus, there are always events to attend, like kayaking lessons, block parties, sports challenges, happy hour, hikes, table games and a great deal more. Of course, if you decide not to go out, you can choose your favorite reading spot in your customized home and relax, or you can enjoy some time working on your favorite hobby. You have the freedom to make your own schedule and plan out your life the way you want to live it.


A community like Kissing Tree offers 18 floor plans and five architecturally distinct exteriors, providing you with numerous customization options for your new home. Depending on your plan, you can choose from an assortment of architectural styles, finishes, colors, and other features. The variety results in a diverse community streetscape that is eclectic but with a distinct Texas flair. You have the option to downsize or upgrade. And all homes are sustainably built and integrate energy efficiency. You can choose a home from a wide variety of pricing options to better cater to your budget. Your personal taste and preferences add to the flavor of the community. If you don’t plan on customizing your own design, Kissing Tree has unique Quick Move-in Homes available that are ready to be occupied.

With all the benefits offered by retirement communities, it’s easy to see why so many people choose these communities to retire in comfortably. If you move into a community for ages 55 and better, you can trust that you’ve made the best decision for you and your family for years to come.
