In my late 50s I moved to a suburban town on New Jersey's shore, buying a large ranch. It is a beautiful house, but there's a full flight of stairs down to the garage, and this isn't a walkable neighborhood. Now in my mid-60s, I expect that in another 10 years or so, I'd like to move to a walkable community, possibly building a small (not "tiny") ranch on a more urban-sized lot.

 

I don't see 55+ communities being all that practical, when people no longer like to drive at night, and some would rather not have to drive all that much at all. These developments are always built where land is cheap, and there are no stores or professional services anywhere nearby.

 

Can't see "tiny" for seniors, where bedrooms tend to be in lofts accessible via a ladder or steep stairs.
