What is Unique about Sun Lakes?

Location, Variety and Price are among the most unique features of this community. Being within 30 minutes to downtown Phoenix and easy access to I-10 and the 202 loop make this a favorite among many working and retire residents. Sun Lakes is essentially a collection of five communities all rolled into one as residents have full use of any of the amenities. With construction running through the 70's,80's & 90's buyers can still find very affordable homes, although some may require some updating.

Life at Sun Lakes Arizona

Sun Lakes AZ is an age-restricted community that includes five retirement communities within 3 homeowner Associations. They consist of Palo Verde, Oakwood and Ironwood, which are all gated communities, and Sunlakes1 and Cottonwood that are both non-gated. This community is master planned and developed by Robson Communities.

All neighborhoods offer a distinctive feel and look. Sun Lakes Country Club is the first Sun Lakes  neighborhood, which is non-gated, and was opened in 1972. Following the completion of the neighborhood, Robson Communities constructed Cottonwood, followed by the neighborhoods in Palo Verde, which jointly include 3,809 residences and have the same HOA (homeowner’s association). Both Palo Verde and Cottonwood neighborhoods feature golf courses.

Oakwood and Ironwood are the 4th and 5th Sun Lakes neighborhoods. Both are gated and situated north of Riggs Road. These two share a single HOA called Iron Oaks, and both communities have the most recent homes, as well as golf courses that are used publicly.

Each of the community’s neighborhoods has a clubhouse that consists of restaurant, swimming pool, fitness center, ballroom, and hobby room. Its grounds shares biking and walking trails, bocce ball courts, picturesque parks, tennis courts, and fishing lakes. Those who love golf can make use of any of the 5 first-rate golf courses found in all the neighborhoods of Sun Lakes Arizona.

Whichever neighborhood in Sun Lakes  you are in, everything you need is only a few steps away. Newer neighborhoods are likely to have a clubhouse that features more extravagant and update   d amenities.

Sun Lakes has numerous events, clubs and activities for its residents, and each of them is truly perfect for active retirees who wish to be socially and physically active. There are several clubs available that meet regularly, plus the interest groups provide a fantastic channel for like-minded people to meet and interact with others who share the same interests.

Sun Lakes Homes and Real Estate

Sun Lakes residences were well constructed and have lasted for 30 years, and because of this, the rate and style of each home is noticeably varied. There are home buyers who want an older home due to its price, whereas some would go for a newly built one that presents beautiful upgrades and contemporary floor plans.

There are attached villas and single-family homes available, varying from 1,000-3,500 sq. ft. With the exception of manufactured residences, numerous floor plans are available in this lovely 40+ community.  Association fees differ by neighborhood, with most of them are paid twice a year. Moreover, residents living in attached villas take pleasure in the added exterior upkeep offered by the organization; hence, they are required to pay an extra fee every month.

Industry Expert Review

The land plan of Sun Lakes resembles the early land plans of Sun City with Amenities placed in the center of a large circular road pattern. While some of the amenity buildings are older the HOA have done a good job managing and maintaining them.  While newer communities are often the preference of many. The older communities are generally placed in better locations as the areas have been built up around them. As long as the communities have been well maintained like Sun Lakes buyer can get great value homes. If you are 40+ and still working this is an ideal community as its location makes it easy getting around Phoenix.
