We all want more leisure time to spend on the things that matter most. Move closer to that reality by prioritizing plentiful community amenities in your next home purchase. Seek out amenities that will give you the ultimate in low maintenance living. Then you can ditch your honey-do list and head out for your next adventure, spend more time with your loved ones or simply put your feet up and relax the day away.

Lock it and Leave It

One community amenity that should be at the top of your list is landscaping and exterior maintenance. This will give you the ability to truly lock it and leave it. It’s that simple. It’ll be liberating to know the yard work is covered the next time you’re out of town, and you’ll rest easy knowing that the work won’t be there waiting for you when you return.

Pool and Fitness Center

A pool and fitness center will surely be an asset to you as well. It’s the perfect place to bring the grandkids during their next visit. Whether you like relaxing in the sun poolside, swimming laps or working out, you’ll be able to do it on your schedule, close to home, without the crowds. And maybe you’ll even meet a new neighbor-turned-workout partner.

Sense of Community

Speaking of neighbors, being surrounded by community may be the best amenity of all. Look for a clubhouse where locals can gather and socialize. Come together to watch the game. Show off your latest grandkid photos. Or get the scoop on the best new restaurant. Community living ensures opportunity to keep connected to those living around you.

Sidewalks or Nature Trails

Finally,  make sure you have a place to walk the dog or go for a stroll by checking out properties with sidewalks or nature trails in the neighborhood. It’s a great outlet for fitness and community while maintaining a feeling of safety, plus reassurance that you’re never far from your front door.  So don’t overlook community amenities in your next home search. They will give you the freedom to spend your time, your way. You deserve it.
