55 plus communities in Brevard County Florida
It’s no secret that a lot of retirees head to Florida either to live full-time or during the winter months. It only makes sense that they are considering a move into a 55+ or adult community to live in. In this article, I will introduce you to where these communities are located, price points to expect, and the best selling areas to consider.
In 2021, we had over 600 properties sold through our MLS that were in a 55+ community that ranged in price from $20K to $570,000.
250 Mobile home/manufactured homes $20K to $325K
232 single family homes $160K to $570K
68 condos $56K to $300K
53 townhomes/half duplexes $$210K to $365K
9 co-ops $58K to $164K
Looking at the map, you can see the sales stretched the county from Titusville south to Micco & Barefoot Bay. There are also a few beachside options in Cape Canaveral, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic & Melbourne Beach. The best selling area with the most options is in the 32940 and the Viera area with a third of the sales happening there.

Indian River Colony Club
The Indian River Colony Club (also referred to as IRCC) isn’t officially a Viera community but is in the 32940 zip code and borders Murrell Rd and Viera Blvd (it’s a big community) This is a 55+ country club community that was originally set up to be a military retirement community that is open for anyone 55+ to live here. There are over 700 homesites and they have 16 different single-family home floor plans ranging from 1000 SqFt to over 3000 Sq Ft. There is an 18 hole golf course. Heated pool, tennis courts, fitness center, and the Country Club that has a restaurant & bar. They have a full calendar for the residents in the IRCC. Since this is a Country Club community, there is a buy-in to live here. There is also a monthly fee to live in IRCC that depends on the floor plan/size of the home. Besides covering what you would expect (yard maintenance, common area maintenance, etc) they also replace the appliances, roof, and exterior paint.
