So the kids have grown up and off to start their own lives.  Empty nesters as they say, and you finally got old enough to enjoy the perks?  Nearing Retirement or already retired, you really must think about joining a 55+ community!

The 55+ community of Fairway Villas, located in NE Denver, just an 11-minute drive to Denver’s International Airport (DIA) might just be the perfect spot to retire!  If you like to golf, you’ll finally have the time to get on the course in your own neighborhood!  In fact, there is a Par 3 course that you get to play for free - - well… free as in part of your HOA.  As well as using the clubhouse facilities like swimming in one of the pools or partaking in one of the MANY social activities or using the exercise equipment. 

Think about it.  You get to live around other people that are at the same stage in life that you are!  Get active in the community and enjoy doing fun stuff.  Sure beats sitting in front of the TV all day! 

Of course, finding the right home in the fun 55+ community is also important.  You want to look for maintenance free living.  You don’t want to be mowing grass when its time to play cards with your friends.  Oh I know what you are thinking….. “Maintenance free means I have to live smack-dab next to someone else, so no thank you!”  Not necessarily so!  Most lots in Fairway Villas are about 7400 SF.  How about a home with Artificial Turf?  No more mowing grass!  Ahhhh. 

You have an RV?  How about a home on the corner so you can plug it in while you take your time to clean it or move your stuff in/out? 

OK…finding the right home is important, and a great community is also important, but the real search is LOCATION.  Do you like to travel?  Are the kids located all across the country and flying is the only way you get to see them?  That makes this home’s location perfect for you as DIA is only 11 minutes on the back roads away.  You don’t have to pay for parking or wonder if your car will be vandalized at those airport parking facilities.  You can Uber/Lyft to the airport and leave your car parked safely in the garage. 

You also have to think about whether the location is a good investment.  Fairway Villas is located in the heart of Green Valley Ranch.  This rapidly growing area has plenty of improvements going on that will help keep home values high.  The Gaylord Center will be opening in 2019.  You can see more and more commerce popping up on major roads trying to accommodate the needs of the growing community.  All this added growth only helps to improve home prices in the area. 

So you’ve got an Active community of 55+, A great house, A good investment, easy access to the airport….. I forgot to tell you one of the largest medical facilities is only 20 minutes away and major retail shopping just 20 minutes too!  Not to mention all the cultural activities in Downtown Denver that you can easily hop on the Lightrail and go enjoy!  Now all you have to do is get those tennis shoes on and come see!
