Default Any moderate priced over 55 communities near LA

Easterners over 55 looking to possibly move from MD to CA as grandkids are now located in LA. However, we are going to be living on a limited income. Any suggestions for us would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Leisure World in Seal Beach is a good start

What is your budget? (What does "moderate priced" mean?)
Where are the grandkids living?

Leisure World as stated above or Laguna Niguel, I believe it is (or it could be Laguna Woods). It's down in south OC and is some huge 55+ community that is very nice. Try researching the two of those.

And yes, it really depends on your definition of "moderate", as the southland is pretty expensive, still.

I think it also depends on where in LA your grandkids are. As an example, if they are in Chatsworth, Laguna (whatever) is not going to be all that convenient.

Default over 55's wanting to move near LA

Our grandkids will be living near Santa Monica. We'd like to be less than 2 hours away and in a moderate ($200-400,000) community (either condo or one floor home). Is such a thing possible?

thanks

Leisure world(Seal Beach, mentioned earlier) starts in the high 100s to low 200s for single story homes. Commute is 45min-1hr to SM I'd say

Yeah, Leisure World would probably be your best bet...Laguna Niguel would ad another hour or so to your commute to see them. Probably 1.5 to 2 hours to get to Santa Monica from Laguna Niguel, possibly longer depending on traffic.
