Dennis, When I checked our local MLS for you today there were currently 335 condos for sale in 55+ communities in Clearwater alone ranging from a high of $529,000 for a 2/2 waterfront condo on Clearwater beach (yes there are several condo communities that cater to 55+ residents) down to a 705 sq ft 1/1 for $38,000.

Now is a great time to buy with several bargains when you consider there are 131 units currently for sale under $100,000 some of which are even 2/2s.

If you would like to search all the senior condos for sale you can do that on our website listed below without having to register. You can always see all the properties for sale by all the real estate companies.

One word of caution - some communities say condos but are really coops and don't own the land - like Top of the World and may require 30% downpayment and limited financing options. Be sure you're working with a local real estate agent that understands how to guide you through this process.

I worked with the Area Agency on Aging in 1992 to start the Senior Helpline so I understand working with retirees in our area. Let me know if I can be of any help or if you would like info on senior condos in surrounding Pinellas County communities. Good luck in your home search.

Currently there are 695 age restricted condo's on the market in the Clearwater area.

The price range is from $38,000 to $550,000

If you are interested in purchasing at this time, you would be best served to contact a realtor, discuss your specific parameters (minimum bedrooms, minimum bathrooms, maximum price and any complex amenities that are most important to you such as waterfront, golf course, etc)

Your realtor would be able to narrow down the listings to include your parameters only, and would be happy to email you the listing information on all, and of course show you those which interest you the most.

Hello Dennis,

There are many over 55 condos in our area with some starting at $50,000 or less but to give you the best answer I would have to know your requirements. How large of a place are you looking for? Does it matter how old it is or if it needs updating? Does the location or amenities matter? Without having more information I cannot give you a blanket answer.

I have exclusively represented Buyers for the last 4 years. I would be happy to set you up with a search matching your criteria and email you only the properties that might interest you.

Please contact me if you have any questions
