Kings Point Difference

There are myriad communities in Florida for active adults. It’s important that you find the best fit, to enjoy your retirement in a place that meets your needs for comfort and relaxation while offering opportunities to learn and explore your interests.

At Kings Point, our residents enjoy our beautiful golf courses, pools, and fitness centers, great dining, and active social scene. Yet finding their niche is what’s most important to many residents and our extensive activities calendar is the key. We have more interest groups, clubs, and activities than any adult community in the area, with almost unlimited variety to suit your interest and your lifestyle. Take a look and explore your passion!

  • Acclimate before you relocate.:

    Weather is key when you’re buying a retirement home. Consider renting during the off season before you buy.

  • Get to know the characters. :

    Your fellow residents will be your new friends. They’ll have a bigger impact on your life than your bathroom fixtures or hardwood floors.

  • Check out the medical care. :

    Does the community provide medical services? If there are no on-site health care facilities, how far must you travel?

  • Factor in local tax rates.:

    Income, property and estate taxes are crucial considerations when choosing a location in which to invest. Find the recipe that suits you.

  • Time your buy to get the best price.:

    The best time to buy is just as the local high season is ending. Like the pricing but not quite ready to retire? Consider buying the home and renting to another retiree.

  • Study the community financials.:

    Carefully review the financial records of the homeowners’ association. Search county clerks’ offices for liens and foreclosures. Research community assessments through the association and the local property tax appraiser.

  • Scope out the approval process.:

    Learn about what’s required by consulting with your broker and current residents

  • Explore “membership.” :

    Full-service communities frequently offer specific club-membership structures. Study the requirements and options. Many communities also charge annual dues and a food and beverage minimum.

  • Scrutinize the activity calendar.:

    Spend some time figuring out if the community provides activities you take seriously. In most cases, there are the staples—golf, tennis, swimming. But some of the most popular activities for retirees these days may sound foreign to you. Pickleball, for example, has become a craze for seniors who used to play tennis. Bocce, the Italian lawn-bowling game, is also hot, primarily because it can be played with a drink in one hand.
