Why Active Adult Living?

Low Maintenance

We get it—keeping up with a home and yard can be exhausting, especially as you get older. In many 55+ neighborhoods, nearly all the work is done for you, including landscaping and outside maintenance. It's just another reason many older adults are making the move to these unique communities. 

Endless Activities

What do you love to do? When you live in one of the Triangle's best active adult subdivisions, it's easy to pick up a new hobby or have some fun. You'll find plenty of neighbors heading to golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools, art classes, live performances, clubs, and plenty of social activities.

Amazing Amenities

One of the biggest draws to 55+ communities is the wide variety of amenities. Here, you'll find everything from aquatic centers to massive clubhouses, all of which are designed specifically with seniors in mind. Go ahead—indulge a little bit! We guarantee you'll find something exciting to do in your free time.

Added Security

It's no surprise that safety is a top priority for many buyers, especially as they get older. Luckily, many active adult neighborhoods are gated, and some even feature a full-time security staff, which gives residents even more peace of mind. You'll rest easy knowing you, your loved ones, and your home are completely safe—and that's something money can't buy.
