Sun Cities

Sun City - Sun City West - Sun City Grand

For those of you planning your retirement from working life, not active life, relocating to a warmer winter climate is worth pondering over. Consider the cost of selling your current home and buying a new home, moving, re-establishing in a new community. Also, consider the community you are moving to. How is the lifestyle? What is there to do? What is the housing like? Can I afford this move? All great questions.

Sun City History

Sun City Arizona is where it all started in January 1960. Del Webb, a well-known real estate developer conceived and built an entire community dedicated to the active retired adult. Surrounded by leisure and recreation facilities, Sun City offers the best value, service, and quality of life for the active 55+ adult looking to retire and relocate.
