55places.com is proud to announce its list of the 25 Best Value Active Adult Communities for 2018.

Trying to determine whether something has value can be a tricky proposition. To some, a valued community could be considered one that’s affordable. To others, it’s about getting the most bang for your buck, even if that means paying a little bit more. Sometimes a great location can bring value while other times it’s about low monthly fees.

55places.com took all of that into consideration as we scoured over 2,000 active adult communities across the country to figure out which ones offered their residents the most overall value. We took into account home prices, homeowners’ association (HOA) fees, the range of amenities, lifestyle opportunities, financial requirements like golf club dues, and many other factors to come up with a Top 25. You can learn more about our methodology here.

While we understand that our list is compiled using objective data and doesn’t take into account the personal needs and requirements of each active adult, we hope it helps inform your search for the ideal 55+ community to fit your lifestyle.
