Here's something that came across the PR Wire.
CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Despite a real estate market that is the worst in decades, one bright spot still remains. Sales in age 55+ active adult retirement communities have remained strong. As the popularity of active adult communities continues to grow, studies have shown that Baby Boomers are increasingly opting to live in these age-restricted developments. A new website, 55places.com, recently launched to help this large demographic group find, research and compare active adult and retirement communities around the country.
55Places.com currently showcases more than 50 active retirement communities throughout 11 popular retirement states. The site is a great one-stop-shop to learn about the details of each community. Visitors to the site can read community descriptions, get details like pricing and association fees, view photos and learn about amenities and social clubs offered by the communities. Unlike other websites, 55Places.com provides objective independent reviews of all active adult communities, including both new and "resale" developments.
