Scottsdale and Phoenix are paradise for those seeking active adult living or retirement. We help people seeking Scottsdale golf homes , a Scottsdale second home with a resort lifestyle, or those lucky enough to relocate to Scottsdale or Phoenix for work.

Here are some of the best Arizona active retirement communities:

Sun City - Del Webb created the first active adult community in the Valley and the largest retirement community in the U.S., Sun City. It was completed in 1960, creating a northwest Sun City community that thrives today. In order to purchase a home in Sun City, at least one member of the family must be 55 or older. No one under 18 is allowed (except for visits, of course). Sun City recreation centers include 7 swimming pools, two libraries, classes in crafts, hobbies and fine arts, square dancing and ballroom dancing, fitness rooms, and bowling alleys. There are therapy pools, lawn bowling, tennis courts, miniature golf & shuffleboard. There are 11 golf courses. Del Webb also built two more communities in the northwest Valley.
