Sun Lakes Arizona Homes & Real Estate

Homes in Sun Lakes Arizona were built over a 30-year time period. As a result, home styles and prices vary dramatically. Some buyers prefer reasonably priced older homes while other buyers opt for more newly constructed homes that feature modern floor plans and desirable upgrades. Home buyers can choose from a wide assortment of single-family and attached villas that range from 1,000 to 3,500 square feet. Not including manufactured homes there are several dozen floor plans available. Many of these floor plans offer several different configurations which make the number of floor plan choices almost limitless. Association fees vary by neighborhood and most are paid bi-annually. Homeowners who choose to live in an attached Villa enjoy additional exterior maintenance provided by the association and therefore pay an additional condo fee each month.

Each of these communities offers the newest collection of homes and golf courses that are open to the public.
