Working in retirerment communities

I am considering marketing in a few retirement communities this spring. I have been avoiding working in them since i started the business 15 years ago. The prices are pretty low in these neighborhoods, they are in the range of $55-$65 per month (mowing,edge,line trim and blow) and have to be serviced 42 times per year. So about $ 17.00 per cut.The lawns are approximately 6000 sq ft.

Our community has a huge retiree population and I feel like I am passing up a lot of work by not servicing these communities. Just not sure if it is worth the headache. I plan on marketing in two communities that have around 5000 homes.

I was hoping that someone on this forum would be will to give me the in's and out's of retirement community work.
