Evaluation Criteria Location

 Choosing the right retirement destination is important.  It is also important to consider the lifestyle you are seeking and the location of the community that will be central to your “new beginning”.   With so many locations available, it can be a difficult task to determine which of those retirement destinations best fits your needs.  BestRetirementDestinations.com has taken the guesswork out of finding that perfect community. We have done extensive research on what criteria is important to those living in and seeking a retirement destination.  The communities that appear on our ranking system have proven themselves to be above the standard in five critical areas. Ranking Criteria: Residential Options:   This includes the availability of various levels of housing options.  Does this community offer both single family homes and condos or townhomes?  Are there several models to choose from in the same neighborhood?  Is there a variety of pricing options? Visual Appeal:  Is the community attractive?  Was it laid out with thought and planning to take advantage of the natural surroundings?  The architecture of the buildings themselves, both the main facility and homes are considered.  The appearances of the landscaping and public areas are also included in these criteria. Recreational Activities:  The variety of activities is taken into account for this criterion. Does the community offer both indoor and outdoor recreation? Are there different levels of difficulty for those activities? Social Networking:  Whether the community provides an opportunity for social gathering of residents is a very important factor for most people.  This criterion reflects how often and what types of social networking is offered. Safety/Security:  This includes the level of the security force on duty.  Is there 24 hour security that patrol?   Are the communities gated?  Are all public area’s well lit at night?  The level of fire protection and the response time is also an important component of this criterion.
