Looking for a Retirement Home

by Doug & Gwen Campbell at Sun Bay Associates

If you are looking for a retirement home, the Clearwater/Palm Harbor area has what you need.  There are lots of 55+ communities with the active Florida lifestyle you are looking for.  You can search for exactly what you are looking for, in the price range you want, in the location you want to be, and do it for free.  Do you want your Florida lifestyle by living in a condo, a single family home, a villa, or a townhouse?  Senior living in the Clearwater and Palm Harbor area does not mean living a sedentary life.

The Florida lifestyle options are bountiful.  The Pinellas Bicycle Trail offers lots of opportunity to get exercise, see beautiful scenery, and not have to share the road with car traffic.  The Pinellas Bicycle Trail runs from Tarpon Springs in north Pinellas County, all the way to St. Petersburg, in south Pinellas County.  There are off-shoots along the way: ride along the Anclote River, stop for a picnic, go fishing; or take a pleasant detour to Honeymoon Island, Florida's most visited state park, with it's wonderful white sand beach, lots of opportunity for fishing, and just plain relaxation.  Or ride across to Clearwater Beach, do all the beach things you want to do, head back to the Pinellas Trail, and maybe stop an any of the many restaurants along the way.

Several retirement communities are pet friendly, some prefer no pets so you can choose which you prefer.  The prices in these 55+ communities range from as low as $25,000 to over $250,000.  Some offer community pools, travel clubs, golf, various alumni associations, movie nights and so much more.

Of course, you can save a lot of time and call us.  We'll do most of the work for you.

 

 

 

Dunedin Retirement Communities

by Doug & Gwen Campbell at Sun Bay Associates

Are you looking for Dunedin retirement communities, or your winter home away from home? Dunedin is the place.  It has the lifestyle, the location, affordability, and almost every amenity you could ask for.  Do you want an active adult community?  You can use our Market Insider to follow the real estate trends in Dunedin.

There is the Pinellas Bike Trail, for those who like to get exercise and go somewhere.  You can ride the Pinellas Bike Trail the length of Dunedin, take a side trip over to Honeymoon Island state park, or just stop on the Dunedin Causeway to watch the boaters, or the windsurfers, or other people simply enjoying the view. There is the Dunedin Golf Club, which is the former home of the PGA, with a wonderful clubhouse and restaurant.  Downtown Dunedin has lots of shops, restaurants and plenty of festivals and events during the season.  Coming in November is the Arts Harvest, a major event with juried artworks available for purchase, lots of good food to eat, and many people just enjoying the fall weather.

So, you ask, what about the Dunedin retirement communities in the area with property for sale?  The Douglas Arms is a 55+ community that is very affordable, with prices typically under $75,000.  Douglas Arms is a no pets community.  There is also the Heather Hill Apartments.  Heather Hill Apartments are villas, have a no pets policy and also are generally priced in the under $75,000 range.  Heather Lake condos, Patrician Oaks and Pinehurst Village are also 55+ communities typically priced under $100,000. You can use our automated price estimator for the estimated value of your home, or any other home you might be interested in purchasing.

Edgewater Arms condo is on Edgewater Drive in Dunedin, with prices in the general range of $150,000 to $225,000.  Edgewater Arms is right on the Gulf coast with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico and the nightly sunset show, which is free.  Edgewater Arms is also a no pets community.

Another outstanding Dunedin retirement community is Royal Stewart Arms.  Royal Stewart Arms is located on the Dunedin Causeway, just before the entrance to Honeymoon Island state park.  The Pinellas Bike Trail goes right by the community, so residents can walk along the Dunedin Causeway to Honeymoon Island, or head east on the causeway to the beach, or over to the mainland for a meal at Frenchy's Island Outpost, and dine on the open air patio.  The listing prices for condos in Royal Stewart Arms are generally from about $175,000 to $250,000.  Some of the condos in this waterfront community have simply incredible views of the Gulf and the intra-coastal waterway.  There is even a community fishing pier where people gather for fishing and conversation, or to watch the dolphins swimming around.

The lifestyle is there, you simply choose the value.
