Florida Senior Apartments

For a long time now, Florida has been considered the ultimate destination for retirees seeking to relocate to independent living communities with a warm climate in the later years of their life. In fact, California is probably the only other state in the nation that can even compare to the attraction of Florida for seniors, and even then, it lacks the lower cost of living Florida has to offer.

Florida is the third most populous state in America and the eighth most densely populated. Consequently, you would expect that land is at a premium, yet for all the demand the state of Florida still has reasonably priced and affordable senior apartments for rent. It is impossible to beat its value!

The state of Florida has plenty to offer to 55+ adults - from warm temperatures year-round, lots of sunshine, yet not so overbearing that you are immediately rushing for cover, cultural diversity, excellent seafood and dishes with Latino, African, Cuban and European influences along with ample recreational opportunities.

Florida is a haven for retirees who are golfers. Tennis and other senior activities are also popular along with waterfront sightseeing and tanning. Everglades National Park and other popular state parks are in Florida along with several other tourist attractions. As a result, you can expect many extended family members and friends to want to visit from out of state.

What can you expect to pay for Florida senior apartments and housing for rent?

Like many other things, independent living communities come in all shapes and sizes, especially in Florida since the state is world renown for being a paradise for retirees and the elderly.

Monthly senior rentals are actually surprisingly affordable in Florida given the demand of the area, especially compared to California. Senior housing in Florida goes as cheap as $1,100 per month and can peak at $4,700 per month. The state average for Florida senior living facilities is about $2,500, which is quite affordable even for seniors on a fixed income.

Jacksonville (the most populated municipality in Florida) and Miami are the most desirable when it comes to senior apartments and tend to run far higher in terms of monthly rent. Tallahassee is another popular destination for senior housing due to its size and selection of senior living complexes.

The Key West, Coral Gables, Marco Island, Palmetto Bay and Miami Shores are very expensive when it comes to senior living facilities, as more than 50 of the world’s billionaires have residences in South Florida. You will definitely live in luxury here, but pay a pretty penny.
