55+ community one or all owners must be 55+ to purchase and reside in it. If you are looking to have family and friends use it, you need to check their restrictions. 55+ tend to have more limits as to how long children (under 18) and guests can visit and some say an owner must be there for them to be able to use the facilities. On the other hand many of the 55+ communities are less expensive so it is a matter of weighing out your needs.
Are you currently looking for a home or just browsing on line for now? I have a free service called â€œListingbookâ€, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS, which updates daily: new listings, price changes, solds & withdrawn listings, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know & I would be glad to set up your free Listingbook Account.
Since you live in the area, I also have a free automated service called CITY (Curbside Info to You) available 24/7. I issue you a number you can call on ANY Real Estate For Sale sign and a computer reads the MLS information to you, from the street number & address for all ACTIVE MLS listings. If this would be helpful let me know. If you have a smart phone & TEXT "PAMELA" to 727-213-5142 it will give you a free mobile site. Bookmark it to you front page and use it anytime. Email me your cell phone & I'll registered it so you won't get annoying follow up calls. If you want to talk to me there is a prompt or you can call me on my cell. If you want to put it on multiple phones, I can put up to three numbers on one user name. Just send the numbers you want added. Put it in your favorites for quick access when you are driving around. I use it all the time.
I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
