Frequently Asked Questions

What is a 55+ Community?
Sometimes called an active adult community, retirement community, or a senior living community, 55+ neighborhoods are designed to cater to residents over 55 years of age. These like-minded individuals enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle to make the most of their retirement years. Our 55+ community has luxury amenities built into each home, the clubhouse and our grounds to make them accessible for an active adult lifestyle.

What is a manufactured home?

A manufactured home is built in a controlled indoor environment with framing and fastening materials to withstand transportation making them stronger than site-built homes.

Manufactured homes are constructed to adhere to the federal HUD Code since 1976. The HUD Code regulates home design and construction, strength and durability, fire resistance and energy efficiency. HUD revised the building code in the early 1990’s to enhance energy efficiency and ventilation standards and to improve the wind resistance of manufactured homes in areas prone to hurricane-force winds.

Who may live in the community?

Being an active adult community, at least one resident at each home must be 55 years of age or older. No person under the age of 19 may live in the community.

How much are the real estate taxes?

Since you do not own the land, you do not pay real estate taxes.

Can my grandchildren visit and stay with me?

Yes! Per the lease, a guest may visit overnight for a maximum of 2 weeks in each 6 month period.

Do you allow pets?

Two domestic pets are permitted at each home provided you abide by the rules and regulations of the lease.

How do I pay the utilities?

Utilities (gas, electric, tv, internet and phone) are billed directly to the homeowner. The public water and sewer from Barnegat Township will be billed to you with payment to the landlord.

What is a Land Lease?

A land lease community is one in which a person purchases the home but leases the land the home is placed. We offer flexible lease-to-own or purchasing options to suit your lifestyle. Learn more about our leasing options here.

How does this benefit you?
