How Many People Live in 55 and Older Communities in the Las Vegas Area? by Lenny Martin

If you’re 55 or older and like an active lifestyle, Vegas 55+ Communities might be the perfect fit for you. It has been estimated that over 100,000 people live in 55 and plus communities in the Las Vegas area, this number increases every year. And for good reason - Las Vegas is a popular destination with its year-round warm climate, no state income tax, reasonable real estate prices, world-renowned golf courses, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. 

What are 55+ Communities?

55+ Communities contain single-family homes and townhomes. They also specifically cater to active adults and are often located near popular restaurants, shopping, and outdoor recreational activities. 

Should I Live in a 55+ Community?

  • You Enjoy Endless Amenities: If you’re someone who enjoys being active, a 55+ community in Las Vegas might be a perfect fit for you. These communities offer indoor and outdoor pools, billiards, golf courses, fitness centers, tennis, pickleball and bocce ball courts, libraries, ballrooms, social calendars, pet parks, community kitchens and more. 
  • You Value Safety: These communities are often in gated or guard-gated subdivisions. Residents in 55+ communities can feel safe knowing they are protected by private security. Additional safety features include smoke detectors, fire alarms, and parking lot lighting.
  • You Want Minimal Maintenance: Exterior maintenance items are routinely taken care of, including common areas and amenities, which is largely due to the HOA fee structure. Residents of age-restricted communities in Las Vegas are only responsible for maintaining their lawn, however, some communities provide this service as well. 
  • You Prefer Neighbors of a Similar Age: Everyone living in a 55+ community will be close to your age and also share similar interests. 
  • You Appreciate a Quiet Community Environment: A 55+ Las Vegas community will be quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. Children are often allowed to visit, but visits are limited to a specific length of stay, usually no longer than 3 months. 

Can a 50 Year Old Live in a 55+ Community?

The answer to this commonly asked question is, maybe. Each community adheres to different rules and regulations, however most allow someone under the age of 55 to live in the community as long as their spouse meets the age requirement. If their spouse passes away, they are often allowed to remain in their home even if they are under 55-years-old.
