55places.com is out with its list of the top 10 best new active adult communities that opened their doors to homeowners in 2018, and it put Del Webb Rancho Mirage at the top of the list.

Having held its grand opening in June, Del Webb Rancho Mirage in Rancho Mirage, Calif. offers a distinct list of benefits centered around convenience and comfort. The Coachella Valley 55+ community will soon include 1,026 single-family detached homes with customizable floor plans ranging from 1,400 to 2,800 square feet. The planned resort-style amenities, state-of-the-art fitness center, golf simulator, and multiple pools provide residents with many reasons why they'll never have to leave, 55places.com said.

Of the internal and external analytics 55places.com examined in order to compile its rankings, including data from Census Bureau and Multiple Listing Service, community information, home sales and resident feedback, as well as offered amenities, location, home variety, and accessibility, it's evident developers are going above and beyond to provide the benefits today's active adults desire.

"Builders like Del Webb recognize how important it is to stay up to date with trends, which is why they're able to create communities that fit varying lifestyles," said Danny Goodman, chief operating officer and co-founder of 55places.com. "Active adult buyers want their own space but may want to remain close to friends, family, or the culture offered by a neighboring city. They get all of that here—in addition to activities like golfing, cooking, drawing, dancing, and reading—while also gaining a support system and sense of camaraderie. These lifestyle requirements are here to stay and will continue to shape communities in the future."
