Here’s an interesting statistic: By the year 2020 almost 45 percent of all U.S. households will include someone at least 55 years old. That stat is from the National Association of Home Builders. They also predict a rise of 30% in housing starts for 55+ communities this year and 46% in 2011.
It’s no surprise as well that design considerations have become less important, and financial concerns have become more prominent. The recession has effected both retirement savings and retirement income. However, nationally Active Adult Communities have not taken the hit in sale price that most real estate has. That said, there are several affordable options in Forsyth County for Active Adult Living.

Tribble Gap Corners is offering 2 bedroom / 2 bath homes for the mid $100’s.
