Retirees Do Not Need to Buy Real Estate to Enjoy Arizona's Sun and Dry Climate

Sun City, Arizona is the original age-restricted, master-planned retirement community, the one that set the stage for all such future communities; it was built by industry leader Del Webb in 1960, and today it is a completely self-contained town of 42,500 people.   Sun City Grand (www.grandinfo.com) is within 5 miles of Sun City and is smaller and more intimate than its sister community. It has a village theme and is home to 17,500 residents.  Both of these well-known communities have single family homes and condominiums for sale, but not everyone knows that they also have a limited number of rental homes. 

 

 

Just outside the Sun City Grand boundary limits is La Solana, a mid-rise condominium complex whose residents enjoy all of Sun City Grand's amenities.  Here there are four floor plans, and rental condos come either furnished or unfurnished..   These units also come with a washer and dryer. 

Single family homes in Sun City Grand are also for lease.  These tend to have 1,500 square feet, two bedrooms, two baths and a two car garage.   Some of these come with a long-term lease, which is good for locking in a price, but some are only available with short-term (up to six months) leases, which, of course, allows the owners to raise the price during the peak season (usually January through March).  Furnished homes also tend to cost more than unfurnished homes during the high season.   Sun City apartments, usually units with no one above and no one below, tend to be less expensive.  

 

Sun City Grand is situated amid waterfalls, lush landscaping and boasts four premium golf courses.  Tennis, swimming pools, walking paths and gyms provide a variety of exercise opportunities.  Pottery, painting, photography, woodworking and other classes are available.  There is also a full-service day spa and an indoor walking track.    La Solano residents enjoy elevators direct to each floor, and local transportation is provided for planned outings to nearby casinos, sporting events and sightseeing trips.

Sun City has swimming pools, hot tubs, basketball courts, bowling alleys, boating and fishing lakes, billiards, ping-pong tables, tennis courts, racquet and handball courts, a fitness gym and softball as well as 130 chartered clubs that offer all kinds of classes.    There are also 350 service, church and civic clubs; volunteer opportunities are literally in the hundreds.   Sun City also is home to seven recreation centers and eleven golf courses.

In both communities, use of the recreational facilities requires a fee, $50 per person in Sun City Grand and $150 per person in Sun City, which provides membership for the term of a rental lease up to one year. 

 

 

This is Arizona so it does get hot.  Very hot.  Summer temperatures can reach the high 90s and low 100s during the day and dip all the way to 80 degrees at night (but it is a dry heat!).   This is mitigated by lots and lots of air conditioning.   Winters are quite pleasant with temperatures in the 60s and 70s.  Sunshine is abundant and free.
