What defines a 55+ community in St. George?

A 55+ community, as the name suggests, is designed for individuals aged 55 and older. These communities often feature amenities and services geared towards the preferences and needs of active adults, promoting a lifestyle focused on leisure, socialization, and overall well-being. While many residents are retirees, some may still be working or pursuing second careers.

They may also be called a retirement community, or active adult community. It is a broad, generic term that covers many varieties of housing for retirees and seniors, but the category encompasses neighborhoods especially designed or geared for people in their golden years, no longer working or living an empty nester lifestyle. Many retirement communities are planned for that purpose, and have special facilities catering to the needs and wants of retirees, including clubhouses, golf courses and planned activities.

Benefits of Living in an Active Adult Community

There are many benefits to choosing a 55+ community in St. George. 

Active Lifestyle

55+ communities are designed to support an active lifestyle, offering amenities such as fitness centers, golf courses, walking trails, and recreational activities. Residents can maintain a healthy and engaged lifestyle with numerous opportunities for physical and social activities.

Social Connection

These communities foster a strong sense of community, providing residents with the chance to build meaningful relationships through clubs, events, and communal spaces. Socializing with peers who share similar life experiences can enhance your overall quality of life, and make moving to a new place a more enjoyable transition.


While there are certainly luxury 55+ communities that do not focus on affordability, some active adult communities offer an affordable alternative to other master planned or gated communities while offering similar amenities. If you are drawn to some of the gated communities in St. George but are looking for a smaller home or lower price point, you may find just what you are looking for and the best of both worlds in a St. George 55+ community. 

Amenities and Security

The amenities available to residents of 55+ communities are one of the biggest perks. From on-site healthcare facilities to organized outings, 55+ communities often provide services and amenities tailored to the needs of older adults. This can include wellness programs, transportation services, and educational opportunities. Additionally, gated entrances, security patrols, and the overall design of these communities contribute to a sense of security. This is particularly appealing to residents who prioritize safety and peace of mind.

Low Maintenance Living 

Many 55+ communities offer maintenance-free living, including lawn care and exterior maintenance. This allows residents to focus on enjoying their time without the burden of extensive home upkeep. It may also allow you to age in place, not needing to move out if exterior maintenance becomes impossible or unsafe in the future as your needs and abilities change.

Do homes in 55+ communities have good resale value?

The resale value of homes in 55+ communities can be influenced by various factors. Generally, these communities retain their appeal, especially if they offer well-maintained amenities and a vibrant social environment. Some factors that contribute to good resale value include:

  • Location: St. George's attractive location, with its scenic beauty and outdoor amenities, is likely to contribute positively to the resale value of homes in 55+ communities. There are many people looking to move to St. George, so buying any real estate in the city is expected to be a wise investment as the demand continues to grow.
  • Reputation of the community: The reputation of the 55+ community, including the quality of management, amenities, and overall lifestyle, can impact resale value. Positive word-of-mouth and satisfied residents often lead to sustained property values. We can help you determine what the local reputation of the community is if you are considering a home in it. 
  • Upkeep and maintenance: Just like any other home, the condition it is in will determine its resale value. Well-maintained homes and common areas contribute to the overall appeal of the community.

Overall, you can rest assured that buying a home in an active adult community in St. George is a sound investment.
