55+ Communities In Arizona

Epic Demand For 55+ Communities in Arizona

The First Active Adult Community in Arizona Was “Sun City”

55+ communities

The idea for 55+ communities started in Arizona when Del Webb developed Sun City Arizona. It was not only the first 55+ community in Arizona, but it was also the first in the United States. Sun City, Arizona opened on New Year’s Day 1960.

It is hard to believe, but 100,000 visitors toured the property during the first weekend. And 400 homes sold during the first month. 2,000 in the first year. Today, it is one of Arizona’s largest 55+ communities with 26,000 homes and 40,000 full and part-time residents.

Along with the homes, Sun City has 11 golf courses and countless amenities and social clubs. The demand for adult communities is as strong as it was in 1960.

Arizona and Florida have built 55+ communities for retired “boomers” and future retirees. Florida boasts over three hundred 55+ communities. Florida has more to meet the demand from the megalopolis in the Northeast.

Arizona has over one hundred 55+ communities. And almost half of those are in Tucson and Southern Arizona.

New home builders are not only building homes, but they are also creating active adult lifestyles.

As with most things, there are pros and cons in the decision-making process. But we suggest the pros far out weight the cons when considering Tucson, AZ.
