New York Communities With Homes for Sale Under $150k

There\'s more in New York for active adults to love than just the Big Apple, and these 55+ communities prove it.

Whether it’s being close to the Big Apple or being near the ocean, New York real estate presents affordable opportunities for active adults to live their lives to the fullest. Naturally, most people think of New York City first when NY is mentioned, but there’s so much more to the Empire State than that. In fact, many city residents head out of town most weekends to spend their leisure time in surrounding areas like Long Island and Carmel.

Aside from the stunning scenery and tons of golf courses (“Golf Digest” ranks Long Island’s Shinnecock Hills as number one in the state) that these areas offer, there are top-performing medical organizations such as St. Francis in Roslyn and Putnam Hospital in Yorktown Heights. Another bonus: NY doesn’t tax social security or civil service, local, or military pensions.

Here are four retirement communities in New York State with homes for sale under $150k.
