Whether you are retiring or relocating, consider the Oro Valley communty located just 20 from Davis-Monthan AFB northwest of Tucson, AZ, they have excellent schools and easy access to I-10.  Northwest Tucson is the fastest growing area in Greater Tucson.  There are 6 golf courses in Oro Valley including the Omni National course.  A new million square foot retail center is opening October 31st

Sun City Vistoso, A Del Webb Community built in the early 80's.  2 bedroom homes and villas start at 1400sf.  There are homes with more square footage aslo avaliable. The average sales price of a 1400 to 1800sf home is $235k.

Saddlebrook is a Robson community which building began in the 80's also, but in this community the builder is still building new homes.  The average sales price of a 1400 to 1800sf home is $260k.

Both communities are in Northwest Tucson AZ (Oro Valley zip 85755 & 85739) and provide many activities for their residents including golf, tennis, crafts, exercise just to mention a few.

I am interested in a 55+ community that is very reasonable in price such as 100,000-130,000. The sq. ft. is not important, the amenities, looks and nice kitchen and walk in closets. Outside should be a wonderful place to sit and enjoy our retirement life. Is there anything out there like that?
