The FHMA Can Help You Find a Home in One of the Many 55+ Communities in the Panama City, FL, Area
The steady rise in the number of 55+ communities in the Panama City, Florida, area shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who follows the Florida real estate market closely. As more and more baby boomers reach the age of retirement, the United States as a whole is experiencing a spike in the number of retirees with plenty of years ahead of them in which to enjoy life. The concept of the Florida 55+ community came into being to cater to this demographic: men and women ages 55 and older who are finished working and/or raising families and looking to live either full- or part-time in the Sunshine State.
Though the 55+ communities in the Panama City, FL, area are all in some respects different, most are typified by:
- Age-restricted occupancy rules – As the name implies, a 55+ community is limited to adults ages 55 and older, although there are generally some caveats and exceptions specific to each community.
- Affordable housing – Perhaps the biggest draw of 55+ communities is the affordability of their housing options. Most 55 and over communities feature low-cost manufactured homes that are well suited for most retirees wishing to downsize.
- Resort-style amenities – Many 55+ communities have a wide selection of resort-style amenities right onsite, such as swimming pools and tennis courts.
- Onsite management – It is common for a 55+ community to have a small staff on hand available to help manage community affairs and make sure that the community runs smoothly.
Another common characteristics of most 55+ communities in the Panama City, FL, area is that they belong to the Florida Manufactured Housing Association, Inc. Our organization exists in part to help spread the word on the many benefits of 55+ community living.
