I am from the Midwest, in our area the TJ's are owned by the German company Aldi ( waiting for AZ to get their Aldi stores ). The family has been looking around the SC and SCW areas recently hoping to find snow bird housing. Not sure if I would qualify , not quite 55 yet.

Sun City West is an age-restricted community requiring that at least one member of each household be 55 year of age and no permanent resident can be under 19 years of age. There is no age restriction on ownership.

So one can purchase if under 55 just not live there?

Perhaps I can offer some insight. Lake Havasu City attracts a fair share of retirees, but it's kind of isolated, and it gets extremely hot in the summer. By this, I'm referring to 120 degrees for daytime highs on a pretty regular basis during the summer months. To me, it's rather unattractive and boring except for the lake and the little English village (which includes London Bridge). It's also somewhat of a spring break destination, as well as an overall recreation hot spot, so if you're looking for an age restricted community, this wouldn't be the place to be.

Sun City West is much more ideal for retirees. It's part of the Phoenix metro area, so it's fairly accessible to better amenities than Lake Havasu would be ... however, it's tucked away in the NW suburbs, so it's peaceful and also age restricted. You won't have to deal with annoying kids, and the best part is much of SCW isn't in a school district, so there are no school taxes. This translates to low, reasonable property taxes. It's also very hot in the summer, but not quite as much as Lake Havasu is. If you want recreation, Lake Pleasant isn't all that far away.
