In the Comfort Life Spotlight

Oshawa area is an increasingly popular destination for 55 and older couples looking for an ideal place to retire. Active lifestyle communities are found in Oshawa, as well as parts of the region closer to Toronto (Whitby, Ajax, Pickering) and also further out, like Courtice and other small towns. The reasons for the interest in Oshawa may be varied, while the appeal of active adult lifestyle communities is obvious.

The benefits of moving to an active adult lifestyle community

Adult lifestyle communities have immense appeal for those 55 and older, for the variety of freedoms that they offer:

Golf communities are just one of the various ways in which 55 plus communities are structured, in fact. Other kinds of communities include gated communities, retirement bungalow villages, waterfront retirement communities along the shore of Lake Ontario, and other variations designed to appeal to the 50 and older active seniors crowd.

The greatest thing about these is the uniqueness of the lifestyle. The discreteness of communities is a boon. You get to be around people your own age, and the size of the community makes it manageable, one of the paramount appeals of these places. You have everything you need within the confines of the neighbourhood you have bought into, and which you have a share of ownership in. As one adult lifestyle community member has put it, living in both a house and a community that are sized just for people 55 and older makes "every day living better." 

Moving to an Oshawa lifestyle community from out of town

Oshawa itself is a smart investment decision, when we look at the years ahead, where the GTA will continue to expand along the 401; real estate prices in the area will continue to grow. Those considerations aside, living here is a treat. There's a unique combination of that proximity to the big city, coupled with the closeness to the majesty of Lake Ontario and all the things to do there. People love other local activities that vary from the OLG Slots to the copious parkland to the great shopping here.

So why should you stay in the house you bought so many years ago? Why not move into a home that's right-sized for the person you are now? Why waste all that room when you can simplify your life entirely by taking a serious look at one of the active living communities listed above.
