Why You Should Move to a 55+ Community

May 4, 2023

At McKee Builders, we believe in the magic of simplifying your life. In our carefree 55+ community in Chester Springs, you wake up every morning knowing that new experiences are waiting for you wherever you go. With the world at your feet, there’s truly nothing you can’t do here.

But despite what you’ve heard, you don’t have to be retired to move to a 55+ community. Yes, many people have already made the big move, but there are so many ways that right-sizing your life before you retire can significantly improve your health, happiness, and well-being. Whether you’re currently retired or will be in the future, take a look at our top reasons that moving to a 55+ community really does change your life: 

Moving to a 55+ community without retiring first…

Low Maintenance

Community common grounds

Have you ever had to drop out of something or miss an obligation because of an unexpected problem in your home? At McKee Builders, we believe that life is best lived when you can dedicate your time to yourself — that’s why we take care of the lawn mowing and snow shoveling for you. Our Customer Care Team and Homeowner’s Guide are here to give you peace of mind. Never waste another moment doing chores; just focus your energy on your family, your job, and what you want.

New Adventure

When you move to Preserve at Marsh Creek, our amenities (including a clubhouse, a fitness center, bocce ball & pickleball courts, hiking trails, and a beautiful setting) are designed for you to relax or stay active whenever you want. While a part of your life stays the same, the other part is an entirely new adventure. Here, you’ll indulge in new experiences, explore new passions, and meet new people that will become lifelong friends.

Sense of Community

One of the many things that sets Preserve at Marsh Creek apart is the sense of community among neighbors. When you move here, you automatically feel a camaraderie with people who love to live the way that you do — and are so happy to be on this journey with you. This might be something you’ve never experienced before, but we promise it makes every day brighter than the last. 

Retiring early and moving to a 55+ community…

Get Up and Go

In a McKee 55+ community, you can travel to the ends of the earth (or even just into town) without having to worry about the upkeep of your home — we’ll take care of snow shoveling and lawn mowng for you. No matter if you’re gone for three months or three days, you’ll never sacrifice a single moment of joy on your trip. Now’s your chance to check off that vacation on your bucket list… Go get out there, we have your back!

Mini Career

Now that work-related stress is a thing of the past and your days are open-ended, you have all the time in the world to hone the skills you’ve always wanted to use outside of your former career. If you enjoy staying busy and earning an income, you can create a “mini career” for yourself by doing exactly what you love, whether it’s writing, crafting, freelancing, or anything related. The best part? This time, you’re your own boss.

Finally, it’s your time to choose exactly what you do and have fun doing it. Think of this adventure as a new way of living — one that’s focused on you. From social events, clubs, and classes to private get-togethers, there are so many ways to interact and become close with your like-minded neighbors. At Preserve at Marsh Creek, there’s always a friendly face around the corner.

No matter where you are in your retirement plans, moving to our 55+ community is one of the best decisions you’ll make. From new experiences to new freedom, living in a maintenance-free home (in a community that loves you back!) makes all the difference today and in the future.
