If a community is only comprised of oldsters who can't live forever (as none of us can), there might be a lot of homes for sale and available for cheap prices in those locales in the not too distant future.
...short answer: Yes, there's a lot of turn-over, but only 55+ people can purchase (HOA) so there's a "filter" on the input as well as on the output (death).
