Questions to Ask When You’re from Indiana & You’re Buying into a Florida 55+ Community

Relocating to Florida for retirement has become almost a tradition for many people from Indiana and other Snowbelt states, but that doesn’t mean choosing a 55+ community to call home will be easy. The exact location of your new home will undoubtedly be important to you, as will the home itself and the resort-style amenities you’ll be able to enjoy as a community resident. In other words, what will you get for your investment?

At StrawBerry Ridge, a gated community of high-quality manufactured homes on the edge of Tampa, we take pride in offering an affordable Florida lifestyle. We’d be delighted to answer any questions you may have about relocating to our community for active adults 55 and older. In fact, here are some great questions to ask before you buy into any 55+ community:

What activities can I enjoy after I move here?

StrawBerry Ridge is one of the few 55+ communities that has a fully equipped woodworking shop, as well as a ceramics studio. These facilities not only allow our residents to enjoy their favorite pastimes but also encourage social activities, including a recent Pancake Breakfast that was attended by over 200 residents. We also have two spacious clubhouses, which make it easy to have fun get-togethers like our recent Spring Frolic Dance. What’s more, the new Gun Club is planning to host gun safety and concealed weapons classes. The Red Hat Mammas are planning an extravaganza, and the Travel Club is planning a group excursion to New Orleans. For more information about community activities, check out our newsletter.

What activities can I enjoy without driving too far?

Because of our community’s terrific location near Tampa, StrawBerry Ridge residents can easily take in a professional hockey, football, or spring training baseball game. What’s more, the large Seminole Hard Rock casino complex, offering exciting games, dining, and shopping opportunities, is about a 20-minute drive from our location.

The best way to learn about all we have to offer at StrawBerry Ridge is to schedule a community tour. Contact our Lifestyle Team today and we’ll be happy to put you on the calendar the next time you’re visiting this area from Indiana.
