Active adults seeking new construction homes in Southern New Jersey should consider these 55+ communities.

One of the first things to know about South Jersey is that it’s very different from North Jersey (many feel that the two are actually different states). While the north is more heavily populated and closer to The Big Apple, the south can be more laid back and rests near Philadelphia. Southern NJ real estate can also be more affordable with homes for sale in retirement communities topping off around the mid $500s.

With miles of frontage along the Atlantic Ocean, Delaware Bay, and Delaware River, much of South Jersey is close to water, and its central areas are highlighted by acres of wooded areas, including Wharton State Forest. With all this natural beauty, one would think that South Jersey is mostly rural, but it’s not. Small towns like Collingswood and Hammonton have charming restaurants and shops; more urban areas like Cherry Hill and Glassboro have upscale shopping centers like Cherry Hill Mall and top hospitals like Jefferson University Washington Township Hospital.

If you’re in the market for a South Jersey active adult community with new construction homes, there are over 20 neighborhoods that fit this bill. Here are four of our favorites.
