About the Area
Active Adult - Retirement Communities in the Phoenix Area
The East Valley includes Mesa, Chandler, Sun Lakes, Tempe, Apache Junction, , Gold Canyon, Queen Creek, & Gilbert. The east valley is home to many well known communites for seniors, such as Sun Lakes, Trilogy in Gilbert, and Solera in Chandler.
South Valley (Florence, Casa Grande, Eloy, Coolidge, Maricopa, and Arizona City) One of my favorites is Province in Maricopa, voted one of the best retirement communities in the U.S
The West Valley, including Surprise, Sun City, Sun City West, and Sun City Grand, has a significant number of retirement communities and one of the original communities developed by Del Webb, Sun City. Since that time, many others have been added including Sun City Grand, Sun City West, Ventana Lakes and Corte Bella.
The North Valley includes Cave Creek, Scottsdale, and Phoenix. There are not as many retirement community listings in these areas as in the west or east valley.
Relax, sit back and let the homes come to you! Tell me what you're looking for and I'll make sure that you receive the new listings as they come on the market, right to your e-mail! It doesn't get much easier than that.
