Homes for Sale in Sun City West AZ

After the roaring success of Del Webb's first community, the bulder moved down the road and built its second Retirement Community called Sun City West. This wonderful community is located in the North West Valley of Phoenix, Arizona, in Maricopa County. It's virtually across the street from Sun City Grand. It is considered one of the most popular and affordable retirement communities in the area. Del Webb began building the community in 1978. The community sits on 7,100 acres with almost 17,000 homes. Homes range from $180,000 to $1 million+. Real estate is affordable, and you can find large lots with beautiful mature desert landscaping.

Amenities include four recreation centers, nine golf courses, six pools, and many wonderful clubs and activities to keep you busy from dusk to dawn. The community is focused around a town center with homes spreading out in a circular fashion from the middle. You need not go outside this retirement community as it is self-contained, with almost everything for everyday living on your doorstep. When driving a golf cart or car, you can get just about anywhere in the community within 15 minutes. The town center includes a variety of retail stores for your convenience, including three supermarkets, drug stores, hardware stores, and restaurants. The sales tax for purchases is among the lowest in the country, and there is no sales tax on food. You will also find a post office, library, banks, and Del Webb Hospital.

To the delight of home buyers, many homes are in a low-tax area where homeowners pay no school taxes (more information below). Sun City West is a 55+ age-restricted community. One person on the title must be 55 plus.

Real Estate

Real estate is an affordable choice for many retirees who want lots of amenities, clubs, and activities. Del Webb built Sun City West between 1978 and 1997. There are 16,900 homes with over 120-floor plans to choose from.  You will find four types of home choices (living options) single-family homes, patio homes, garden apartments, and duplexes. The majority of the homes are single-level, two-bedroom, two-baths with two-car garages.

Single-family detached homes make up the majority of homes in the community. They range from 900 Sq.ft. to more than 3,500-sq.ft. You will find varying lot sizes, mature landscaping, and many golf course lots to choose from, as there are nine golf courses. Many of the homes have been remodeled and updated, perfect for those buyers who are looking for a move-in-ready home. If you don’t mind a fixer-upper, you can find some excellent bargains. Many young retirees, who have time and energy, are buying these homes with the intention of gutting the interior and reinventing the living space.

Who lives here?

So here are the demographics.  The current population of Sun City West is just over 28,000, with a median age of 75.  The median household income is $45,769, and the average household net worth is $388,335.

Resale

All the homes in the community are resale and range from about $180,000 to over $1 million. The lower-priced homes are condos, apartment-style flats, and duplexes. Single-family golf course homes start in the low $400's. Whether you are a full-time resident or a snowbird here for only the winter months, there's a home and a floor plan that will fit your criteria and lifestyle. Some of the most sort after homes have open floor plans with kitchens opening up to a great room. There is no formal living room or dining room which many see as wasted space or just another room to clean. Homes on the golf course and homes with pools fetch a premium price.

Buyer Tip: If you buy in one Del Webb Community, can you use the amenities in the other Del Webb communities?
The answer is no. For example, if you live in Corte Bella (Del Webb’s Country Club Retirement Community), you cannot use the amenities in Sun City West or Sun City Grand. Exceptions would be things open to the public, like public golf courses, shops, and restaurants.
