Why home buyers LOVE Sun Lakes, Arizona

by Amy for Real Estate

Why do home buyers LOVE Sun Lakes, Arizona?  It’s real simple.

When you purchase a home in Sun Lakes, you’re purchasing a country club lifestyle.  Golf Courses, Swimming Pools, Tennis, Fitness Centers, Racquet Ball, Pickle Ball, Billiards, Clubhouses, Restaurants, Miles of Walking Paths…the list goes on.

My buyers, Bill & Dianne Stoutenberg from Alberta Canada said it best~

“Amy had asked us what type of lifestyle and property we were interested in? We did not realize how important the lifestyle question was until we looked at various properties in Mesa, Gilbert and Chandler. Amy showed us several properties in those areas and we quickly realized we did not want to buy just another home in another city suburb. We wanted a winter vacation country club lifestyle.

Amy showed us several properties in Sun Lakes Oakwood area and the associated amenities. We were impressed with the 27-hole golf course, 3 swimming pools (heated for winter use), the beautiful club house, other recreation facilities and community security. The area was kept in immaculate condition and the people we met were very friendly.”

So what is the age demographic in Sun Lakes? Here’s where most people have a mis-perception.  Sun Lakes differs from many active adult communities.  The 2010 census profile best illustrates this point.

Population:  13,505

Ages:
Over 55:   12,317
Under 55:   1,188

Yes… you read it correctly almost 10% of the population living in Sun Lakes, AZ is under the age of 55 (including…my husband & I!)

Federal law (Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988) to Title VIII of the 1969 Civil Rights Act requires communities intended for residents 55-years of age or older only need have 80% of the residents who must be 55-years of age or older.

This is great news for the buyer today who wants a country club lifestyle and fits the age criteria!
