Les53209 -- I don't live in Sun Lakes but my Mom did for 8 years. I know they changed the rules awhile back to allow homeowners to be 40 or older. (Used to be 55+). While I don't think you are committing to an "old age" home, most homeowners appear to be in the 50 plus category. I went to a couple of open houses and noticed that the people looking at homes seemed younger than they had been in the past -- people around 50ish. My impression is that the community is quite active and not at all like an old age home.

Sun Lakes is huge and you can be as involved in the community as much or as little as you want to be. There are a lot of snow birds in the community who are in the pre-retirement stage.

Having said that, my mom hardly knew her neighbors although she lived next to them for years. But she did start a club there and got really close to the ladies in her club, all of which lived in the community.

I will also say that Sun Lakes is a good real estate investment. Despite the down slide in the Phoenix market, house prices have not tanked in Sun Lakes although they are considerably lower than a couple of years. ago. Good luck.
