Looking at Purchasing an Active Adult Community Home in Tucson, AZ?

 Active Adult communities in Tucson, AZ, generally cater to individuals aged 55 and older and are designed to provide a lifestyle tailored to the needs and preferences of active retirees. These communities typically offer amenities such as golf courses, fitness centers, social clubs, and low-maintenance living options.

If you're interested in purchasing a home in one of these communities, here are some steps to guide you:

Start by researching the various Active Adult communities in Tucson. Some popular ones include Sun City Vistoso, (Oro Valley, AZ) SaddleBrooke, (SaddleBrooke, AZ) and The Highlands at Dove Mountain, (Marana, AZ). There are many other communities scattered about metropolitan Tucson. Each community has its own set of amenities, rules, and housing options, so it's important to find one that suits your lifestyle and preferences.

Knowing your budget is important when searching for Active Adult communities in Tucson.  Consider not only the cost of the home but also any homeowners' association (HOA) fees and other potential expenses associated with living in the community. Some communities offer clubhouse amenities or manned gates, and others simply offer a generalized neighborhood – so costs can vary!  Active Adult living often has HOA rules and fees. Understand the regulations and restrictions in place, as well as any additional fees for amenities and maintenance. This information will give you a clearer picture of the total cost of living in a particular community.


Active Adult communities typically offer a range of housing options, including single-family homes, condos, and townhouses. Consider the type of home that best suits your needs and preferences.

Hello Cara - regardless of lifestyle or personal preferences, buying a home involves many decisions beyond the property.  Knowledge and analysis come into play - you certainly have a handle on the Tucson real estate market.  Your post helps put those looking to make a move into the right frame of thought.

I love this presentation - and I love the Golden Girls marketing - that is awesome - I have a good friend who is a fellow KW agent - I joke with her that we can be the two old bats - Golden Girls is much better

Hi Lise Howe - appreciate your share!  It has been mentioned that the "Golden Girls" alludes that we are old...and we laugh and say, yeah...we ARE older!  Niche baby!

It sounds like you have some wonderful choices for 55+ communities in Tuscon.  We moved into one in Goodyear, AZ., last December and have loved every minute of it.
