Why You Should Move to a 55+ Community Now and Not Later

At Cornerstone Homes, we believe in the magic of simplifying your life. In any one of our low maintenance communities across Virginia, you can wake up every morning knowing that new opportunities and experiences are waiting for you wherever you go. And you have more time to savor your newfound freedom.

You don’t have to be retired to move to a 55+ community. Yes, many people have already made the big move, but there are so many ways that “right-sizing” your life before you retire can significantly improve your health, happiness, and well-being. Whether you’re currently retired or will be in the future, take a look at our top reasons that moving to a 55+ community in Virginia really does and can change your life:

Rightsizing early and moving to a 55+ community…

Happier and Healthier Lifestyle…

Our 55+ communities make it easy to stay active and healthy. Enjoy a lifestyle enhanced with fantastic health and wellness amenities that can only be found in a Cornerstone Home community.  A clubhouse for gathering and enjoying meals together, fitness center to stay in shape, pool and outdoor grills for cookouts (and exercise!).  Walking trails, sidewalks, and numerous outdoor gathering areas to enjoy nature or catch up with friends.  Corner Patch Gardens, our professionally maintained community gardens with fresh veggies, fruits, herbs, and flowers are just steps from your front door.  Or a community built around a professionally managed 10-acre farm.   Whatever makes you happy!

Low Maintenance

At Cornerstone Homes, we believe that life is best lived when you can dedicate your time to yourself — that’s why we take care of yard work and exterior maintenance for you. Now you will have more time to savor your newfound freedom and you’ll never waste a moment doing work, so you can focus your energy on your family, your job, and what you want.

Meet New People

Finally, it’s your time to choose exactly what you do and have fun doing it. Think of this adventure as a new style of living — one that’s focused on you. From social events, clubs, and classes to  cooking demos and tastings,  to private courtyard get-togethers, there are so many ways to interact and connect with your like-minded neighbors. At Cornerstone Homes, there’s always a friendly face around the corner.

Sense of Community

One of the many things that sets Cornerstone Homes apart is the strong sense of community that’s cultivated among neighbors from the start.   When you move here, you have an instant social circle and you automatically feel a sense of camaraderie with people who are in the same stage of life as you and are ready to explore and have fun.

Lock and Leave

In every Cornerstone Homes community, we offer the  “Lock and Leave” lifestyle that lets you travel to the ends of the earth (or even just to the next state) without having to worry about the upkeep of your home, like cutting the grass or pulling weeds. No matter if you’re gone for three months or three days, you’ll never sacrifice a single moment of joy on your trip.  Now is your chance to check off that vacation on your bucket list… Go get out there, we have your back!

Mini Career

If work-related stress is a thing of the past and your days are open-ended, you have all the time in the world to hone the skills you’ve always wanted to use outside of your former career.  Whether you enjoy staying busy and earning an income or just want to volunteer, you can create a “mini career” for yourself by doing exactly what you love, whether it’s writing, crafting, freelancing, or anything related. The best part? This time, you’re your own boss.

Moving to one of our 55+ communities in VA is one of the best decisions you’ll make, and you’ll soon be asking yourself, “Why didn’t I do this sooner!” From new experiences to new freedom, living in a maintenance-free home will change your life now and in the future.  Take that first step to a  more fulfilling life now. We are here to help you navigate this new phase of life.  For more information, please visit our website today and come meet homeowners just like you!
