There are two basic types of active adult communities. One type of active adult community is age-restricted, and the other is age-targeted. In the United States, rules created by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) only govern age-restricted communities.
Bottom line, is that "Adult community" means that you must be 55+ to purchase. It is typically an organized development that has a clubhouse and amenities and events that cater to those that are 55+. I can say so much more, but will stop here. 33% of my business is in Adult communities so if you would like more info please do not hesitate to contact me direct,
