If you’re entering your golden years and thinking about downsizing, you might be considering a move to an apartment. STOP! Don’t be missing out on a great alternative option you may not have thought of - manufactured home senior communities. Instead of sharing walls, floors, and ceilings with noisy neighbors like in an apartment complex, you could be making your favorite homemade family recipes in a low-maintenance home, where your neighbors are other older couples and singles, and all of them are looking for a place to garden, grill out, and socialize with folks their own age.
For example, Bayshore offers manufactured home retirement communities nationwide that will melt your butter! Read on for an explanation of what a manufactured home really is, and the benefits of living in an active senior manufactured home community.
First, let’s talk about manufactured homes
Whatever image you have in your head about manufactured homes, wipe it out now. Today’s manufactured homes look and feel like a regular home, without the price of one. How it works–these homes are built off-site with regular home materials. They’re affordably priced because they’re able to build them in a factory setting where assembly line techniques just simply remove the hassle of dealing with contractors, weather delays, and more.
The end result is a solid, efficiently built home with great features, and placed on a lot of land where you don’t have to share walls with other apartment residents.
Folks that are there to stay
In an apartment complex, you never know when someone’s going to move out, making it difficult to know your neighbors. But in manufactured home retirement communities, you’ll get to know other seniors who’ve lived there for years and aren't going anywhere. They’ll be able to show you around town, give you the latest gossip, and help you feel more at home.
Get to know your neighbors at organized community events
Make new friends quickly and easily with our year-round community events! Get to know your neighbors, make that new casserole recipe you’ve been dying to try out, and create new memories with your family. You’ll feel right at home in no time when you attend our various social events, including:
- Block parties
- Pool parties
- Holiday events
- Movie nights
- Arts & crafts
- Bingo nights
There’s truly something for everyone in a manufactured home retirement community. And of course, if you’d rather just sit at home and tend to your garden, you can do that too!
Helpful folks on-site to take care of things
Like apartment complexes, manufactured home retirement communities come with on-site staff. But you’ll notice at Bayshore manufactured home communities, the people on site are there to take the worries away from being a homeowner.
The community helps maintain common areas such as outdoor areas of the community and trees and roads–as well as amenities such as pools (where applicable), the clubhouse, and gathering areas. On-site attentive staff can assist with any questions or issues that are brought to their attention. Our maintenance team has you covered– there’s always someone on-site!
Residents come first here
Our residents are our first priority. Each community is designed to meet your lifestyle, whatever that looks like. On the grounds of our communities, you’ll see great amenities like swimming pools, clubhouses, shuffleboard, and more. Grill out with friends and drink a cold one in your big yard, socialize with friendly neighbors, and explore the surrounding area you’re calling home.
You’re investing in your retirement future
Owning a home is probably your biggest desire, but you might not be sure if you can swing it, especially in your retirement years. While you might have seen renting an apartment as your best option in the short term, please know that any one of you can own a home in the long term—especially at Bayshore. Our new, energy-efficient homes help you save money for vacations, treats, and more.
Our goal is to make homeownership a reality for everyone. We provide referral rewards up to $1,000, and $200 off when you request a tour and other site rent promotions!
Each manufactured home at Bayshore is freshly built with all the best fixtures and materials—you can count on owning a clean and beautiful home. Additionally, our common area groundskeepers ensure beautiful landscaping all year round, so you never have to worry about patchy grass, unkempt flowers, or playgrounds that look like a jungle.
Searching for a home that meets all of your needs can be hard, but it’s not at all impossible, especially when you choose a Bayshore senior community. Compared to an apartment complex, you may be faced with limited availability for ground-level apartments. But at Bayshore, our senior communities allow you to join in a lifestyle that best suits your needs.
