If you’re considering buying a home in an active adult community, you may be considering relocating from your current home to find a place that’s a little more suited to the lifestyle you’re seeking… but just where is the right spot? If you’re looking for small-town community, plenty of outdoor adventuring, and a short drive to big-city amenities and entertainment, then Fort Mill just might be the place for you!
Why Buy a Home in an Active Adult Community?
First, let’s talk about choosing to buy a home in an active adult community in the first place. What are the perks? Well, for starters, these are 55+ communities, so you surround yourself in people who are at or nearing retirement age—your age. Also, homes of the communities are often designed for a more low-maintenance lifestyle designed to reduce the amount of yardwork and home upkeep you’re required to perform. And lastly, active adult communities are often designed to promote active and social lifestyles, which means they come equipped with amazing amenities like pools, gyms, clubhouses, walking or biking trails, and may even have planned resident activities and clubs.
Why Choose Fort Mill for Your Active Adult Home?
So, a 55+ neighborhood might be an easy sell, but why Fort Mill?
Because there’s so much to do, see, and explore! This charming country town has it all—a quaint Downtown filled with shops and restaurants, fun local events, beautiful parks and nature preserves, and even the nearby Lake Wylie, where you can enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, paddling, hiking, and more.
What’s more, Fort Mill is just 25 minutes from Downtown Charlotte, where you can find everything from pro sports to theatre and art to museums and history to shopping, dining, and nightlife.
And because the lifestyle of Fort Mill is so amazing, it’s actually got some pretty amazing Active Adult Communities to choose from.
