55 Plus Communities in Bradenton With Low HOA Dues
Downsizing and planning for retirement can be exciting and stressful all at the same time. Figuring out where to live, setting a budget, choosing the right neighborhood and community—these are all things every home buyer needs to figure out, but it often feels different when you’re winding down your career and planning for what hopes to be a more relaxed time in your life. As alluded to, a budget will be a major part of that planning, and if you're not looking to break the bank on monthly, quarterly, or annual HOA dues, here's a closer look at just some of the active adult communities in the Bradenton area with an affordable HOA.
Mount Vernon is one of Bradenton’s largest 55 plus communities, as well as one of its most affordable too. You’ll find a charming collection of villas, single-family homes, and condos in Mount Vernon, providing prospective buyers a range of options to fit almost any lifestyle. Detached homes and villas in the community are quaint, often including around 1,400 square feet, garages, and private back patios. Most condos offer around the same amount of living space, and everyone has access to the community’s incredible amenities, which include a sprawling swimming pool and sun deck, tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and a clubhouse with an event space, pool tables, and more.
Del Webb Lakewood Ranch
Offering a premier Lakewood Ranch location, Del Webb Lakewood Ranch is among the most sought-after 55 and over communities in the area. Unmatched amenities, a full-time lifestyle director on staff, and a private gated entrance await you after signing on the dotted line, and despite having access to all of these features, HOA dues remain relatively reasonable. Homes in the community range from attached villas to larger 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom detached single family residences. And as you might expect, home prices do tend to fall on the higher side; but as many current residents will tell you, the premium price is well worth it here at Del Webb Lakewood Ranch.
Mirabella at Village Green
Mirabella at Village Green presents home buyers with a lovely 55 and over setting, not to mention a wonderful collection of low-maintenance paired villas. Like Del Webb Lakewood Ranch, the community employs a full-time activities director, and part of their job is to welcome all new residents and ensure they’re introduced to everyone who already calls the community home. Other amenities at Mirabella at Village Green include a resort-style swimming pool, pickleball courts, walking and biking trails, tennis courts, and a thoughtfully designed clubhouse with a fitness center and plenty of space for social events and gatherings.
Harmony at Lakewood Ranch
Harmony at Lakewood Ranch is quickly becoming a 55 and over favorite in Bradenton thanks to its resort-style amenities and quality built homes and villas. It’s also one of the area’s newer active adult communities, which means most active homes on the market are move-in ready and include premium interior finishes and a modern exterior design.
