For years now, many people have dreamed about the warm winters and abundant outdoor activities that have made Orlando and Central Florida a favorite place to retire.

If you are searching for retirement housing you will find many different options and styles in the Orlando area, whether it’s in a gated community or club, an active adult community, an assisted living community, a mobile home park, or an over 55 community for active adults. It can be easy to find what you are looking for in Central Florida. You may be looking to retire in the city, or perhaps in the suburbs, or maybe even in one of the small towns outside of Orlando. You may be looking for a home on a golf course where you can hit the greens all day. You may want to find a home on a lake where you can fish and boat all day. Or you may want to find a home close to the entertainment and dining establishments near the tourist areas. With an abundance of amenities like shopping malls,  hospitals, and entertainment, everything one needs for their retirement can be found in Orlando and Central Florida. Many of the people who retire to the Orlando area move here from another state. The comfortable winter weather is a big reason. The plentiful outdoor activities is another.

An important factor for anyone to consider when retiring is the cost of living. Fortunately, Orlando has one of the lower costs of living out of all the other similar retirement locations throughout the country. In fact, the median home value in Central Florida is less than the national average, making it an affordable place to buy a home. And don’t forget taxes! Florida has no personal income tax. This is a major factor to most when choosing where to retire. For more information about retiring in the Orlando area, please contact us today.
