55+ communities in Las Vegas offer many benefits for active retirees.
Community Safety and Security: Many of the 55+ communities are located inside secure, guard-gated subdivisions. You can feel safe knowing they contain state-of-the-art private security features including parking lot lighting, smoke detectors, and fire alarms.
Exteriors Have Minimal Maintenance: As a result of the way HOA fees are set up in active adult communities, many of the exterior maintenance items are taken care of - This typically includes any common areas and amenities. Most likely, the only area you will be responsible for taking care of is your yard, but there are communities where even backyard landscaping maintenance is performed by HOA.
Neighbors of a Similar Age: Living in a 55+ community means that everyone around you will also be retired, living a similar lifestyle, have common interests, and share a similar age. For those looking for friends to socialize with, especially in the outdoors, this can be a significant feature.
Quiet Community Environment: You can expect your active adult community to be quiet and peaceful. While grandchildren are allowed to visit, the visits are usually short and infrequent, and children must follow the rules of the neighborhood.
Las Vegas Amenities: Active adult communities are filled with amenities for you to enjoy either alone, with your partner, or with friends. There is something to do every day, which means you don’t need to worry about getting bored or trying to find ways to fill your time.
A 55+ community is an adult retirement community for those who are at least 55-years-old. These communities cater to active adults, providing a variety of amenities such as a clubhouse, fitness center, outdoor or indoor pool, tennis courts, pickleball, bocce ball courts, library, kitchen, game room, BBQ area, walking trails, billiards, and a golf course. With Vegas 55+ you can choose from more than 30 55+ communities in Las Vegas.
These communities cater to the specific needs of active, retired adults. Depending on the specific neighborhood, they can consist of single-family homes, condominiums, or townhomes. They are often located in desirable areas with proximity to restaurants, shopping, and parks.
Retirees often decide to live in a 55+ community for several reasons. Some retirees want the community aspect - a neighborhood or gated-community with other individuals or couples who are the same age and live the same type of lifestyle. These areas are always quiet and peaceful, which appeals to most retirees. This type of community also tends to appeal to those who want to live an active lifestyle - These communities often provide a wide variety of amenities (such as pools, tennis courts, a golf course, pickleball, walking trails, and more).
Another reason active adult communities are popular among retirees is low-maintenance or maintenance-free exteriors. These services are often provided and included in the monthly HOA community dues. The specific maintenance covered will depend on the community you choose.

Choosing a 55+ community in Las Vegas is an important decision. Your Vegas 55+ Realtor, Lenny Martin, will ask you a series of specific questions to help guide you through the community selection process. Some good starting points include asking yourself the following questions: Do you prefer an indoor pool or outdoor pool?
How many amenities do you prefer? Typically the more amenities provided, the higher the monthly HOA fee.
Is it important that the fitness center has state-of-the-art equipment?
Do you golf?
Do you play tennis?
Does your new neighborhood need to have a community center with a library, kitchen, and conference room?
Do you prefer to be centrally located to shops and restaurants?

If you are the legal guardian of an adult child 18-years-old or older, the individual might be able to live with you. This depends on the specific bylaws of the retirement community. Typically children under the age of 18-years-old are not allowed to become permanent residents. For more information, please contact us at 702-275-7717.
Yes! This is one of the most common questions clients have when meeting with us. Your grandchildren are allowed to visit you, but they do need to follow the rules of the community. Chances are there will be several other grandparents in your community who also at times will have their grandchildren visit. They are not allowed to become permanent residents. This typically means grandchildren can visit for anywhere from 30 to 90 days total over the course of a year.
The specific maintenance covered and the monthly HOA fees will depend on the community you choose. In general, HOA fees cover the costs associated with common areas. This includes the pools, fitness facilities, kitchen, golf course, tennis courts, elevators (if applicable), walls, roofs, fences, and any additional exteriors of common areas, and sometimes utilities such as water fees and garbage disposal.
Your Vegas 55+ Realtor will be able to provide you with the complete details of HOA fees for each community, as well as a history of how the fees have changed over time in each community. This provides you with a snapshot of what you can expect in fees when you purchase your new home, as well as what you can expect in the future with those fees.
This depends on the specific rules in your 55+ community in Las Vegas. Some communities might specifically state that no renting is permitted at any time - This is in large part due to the fact that when you live in an active adult community, there are shared amenities and specific lifestyles that everyone is paying to have.
However, some communities might state that renting is permitted as long as the minimum rent period criteria is met or that the renters meet a specific age requirement.
Your Vegas 55+ Realtor can go over the bylaws with you for each community to ensure it’s a good fit, should you decide you want to rent out the home in the future.
When it comes to deciding whether you should rent or buy when you retire, the major factor to consider is how long you plan on staying in your home. Is this going to be a long-term place for you? If so, it will most likely financially benefit you to buy a home rather than paying rent.
Additionally, many 55+ communities in Las Vegas do not allow rentals. So if you want the added benefits of living in a community with active adults in your age group, you will most likely need to buy your home.
Pets are often allowed in 55+ communities in Las Vegas. However, the number of pets (and types of pets) will depend on the specific community you choose. If you have any specific questions regarding your pet, please feel free to contact us at 702-275-7717. We are more than happy to answer your questions and provide any necessary details to help you make an informed decision for this next chapter of your life.
The rule states that at least 80% of the homes in a community must be occupied by at least 1 person age 55 or older. Does that mean that the other 20% of homes can have residents under the age of 55? Not necessarily, since each community determines its own policy by allowing some flexibility in case the age issue comes up.
All 55+ communities in Las Vegas have plans in place to ensure residents are staying safe and limiting the spread of COVID-19. This includes disinfecting common areas and potentially temporarily closing specific shared facilities, such as the pool. Residents are also required to wear masks when in public spaces and maintain six feet apart from one another in an effort to practice social distancing.
