Frequently Asked Questions


Where are your communities located?
All 14 CRF Resale communities are in the heart of Florida – in the center of the state – spread across Polk and Highland Counties. This prime location puts our residents in close driving distance to top Florida attractions, as well as the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts.
How do I become a resident?
With such an attractive destination, and at such reasonable costs, CRF drives a lot of interest. In order to maintain the level of quality and security we are known for, all potential residents must pass a criminal background check and agree to the community’s set rules and regulations. We not only uphold these standards but are proud to live by them. Call us today for more information: 866-370-1581. Our professional sales and management teams are here to assist future residents in every part of the process from touring to purchasing to residency.
Are your communities pet friendly?
When deciding where to spend your retirement, we know that having your furry best friend is of the utmost importance. Our 55+ communities are pet friendly, though we do have some regulations. To get more information on CRF’s pet policies, and to see some of our residents enjoying time with their dogs, click here.
What is there to do nearby?
Each of our 14 locations are within an hour’s drive to some of Florida’s top attractions, such as Disney World, Busch Gardens, and coastal beaches just to name a few. Our communities are also surrounded by numerous local downtown shops, cinemas, events and restaurants.
What are the golf fees?
Having the weather for year-round golf is just one of the amazing perks of spending your retirement in the state of Florida. Many of our 55+ communities feature golf courses. To see a full list of locations, fees, and green difficulty levels, please visit our golf page.
What amenities/activities are offered in the communities?
CRF has taken care to position ourselves in a very convenient area in the state but that does not mean you have to travel outside the gated entrance of the community to enjoy the best of Florida! Each community presents its own set of amenities and planned activities that you are sure to enjoy them with like-minded, friendly neighbors in an active, yet peaceful setting. Swimming pools, Jacuzzi spas, shuffleboard courts, golf, restaurants and so much more can be found in CRF Resale communities. To see the amenities available at each location, please visit each community page.
What is the weather like in Central Florida?
Comfortable year-round temperatures are one of the main reasons Central Florida is a top destination for retirees from all over the country. With an average winter high of 72 degrees and a typical summer day of 92 degrees, being outdoors year-round is not uncommon. Our wonderful weather is why al fresco activities and events are in abundance in The Sunshine State.
Why choose a CRF Community?
Florida is full of beautiful locations and fun activities and that can make it difficult to pinpoint the best location to build your retirement. Just remember, the one thing that sets any retirement community apart from another is the company behind the community. The owner and employee’s pride and dedication to offering quality service and products should be a major factor in this exciting decision-making process. CRF Communities has been providing 55+ adults numerous lifestyle options at affordable prices for over 30 years. Family owned and operated, CRF Resales offers 14 distinct Central Florida locations for you to choose from.

What is a featured home?
On our website, we regularly showcase “featured homes.” These homes are hand selected and give you the opportunity to enjoy reduced sale prices and lot rents! Combining these two discounts can often be the little bit of grace you need when beginning your retirement in Florida and we are happy to present them to you in our weekly emailed newsletter.

Who owns the land?
In our communities, residents own their home and rent the lot it sits on. Professional community management and use of the amenities in the community are included in your lot rent. Competitively priced pre-owned homes and affordable lot rent give you the financial freedom to enjoy your Florida retirement at CRF Resale Communities.
What is a manufactured home?
Manufactured homes are a staple in Florida retirement because they continue to be the perfect way to accomplish both quality and affordability. This style of home is constructed in a factory following strict federal codes and once placed in the community, maintained according to CRF’s own high standards. Resales ranging from $5,000 to $150,000 allow you to have the amazing location and lifestyle while remaining within a budget you are comfortable with.
