I don't know if anything is "wrong," but I've been told that the railroad tracks that run across the front of the entire property will have trains traveling on them very frequently now due to some changes in commercial transport coming from Mexico.

If what I've been told is correct that might block access to the location on a regular basis (the tracks go right in front of the entrances). Noise may also be increased.

I haven't researched the matter (I'm in Green Valley so the problem is moot for me) so if you're truly interested you'll have to look into the issue yourself.

I go to the dog park directly across the street from Quail Creek, and the trains are very loud there. I feel bad for the residents if train traffic increases.

There is also a very bad sewage smell when the wind blows in the direction of Quail Creek, which has been often lately. According to people who live there, this has been an on-going problem that gets corrected temporarily but returns.

I was told by someone who used to live there that they moved because of a problem with noisy kids. Although it's supposedly an adult community, he said they are very lax about how long kids can "visit" and some have actually lived there for years. He said kids run wild, make a lot of noise, and ride ATVs in the neighborhood streets and nothing is done about it. I don't know if that's still a problem now or not, but when he and his wife moved out last year it was still a problem.

I know several people who have lived there for several years and they absolutely love it. They haven't had an issue with sewer smells, kids or trains. Maybe it affects different areas of the neighborhood. Who knows. My parents are interested in moving there and I certainly wouldn't have an issue with them doing so.

As Steve pointed out we spent five days and 4 nites there without any issues. I was really wondering where all the people were, some snowbirds for sure are gone, but in general, another month spent there in a rental might give even more clarity. We met a few renters but mostly homeowners. thx for the input, this note is from "THE WIFE", as Steve fondly called me.

In 4 nights and 5 days we just spent there we never heard a train nor smelled anything but rain on desert plants. I asked about the seemingly high number of listings, about 8% of the homes are for sale. The response was its largely a matter of being a senior community. People get older and sometimes can't keep up with independent living any longer as their health fails. Sometimes a mate dies and the survivor prefers moving in with kids to going it alone. Also some property is owned by snowbirds that own two or even more properties in different locations. Sometimes continued aging causes the luxury of multiple residences to no longer be possible. Every senior community we looked at had quite a few for sale signs out.

The market is many of these communities has been depressed since the collapse of the real estate market in 2008. There are a lot of owners who have held these properties (as a second home) who have wanted to sell but were waiting for the market to return to precollapse levels.

I have been looking around the tucson area. Lots of good info on this site to consider.
I looked at quail creek, but based on what was available in some of the the other communities and location, it is further down the list now. It seemd like a nice community.
I just visited Saddlebrooke and Oro Valley. Really leaning toward Saddlebrooke. I am coming from Nw and being up close with the views of the mountans are there. Seemed cooler than tucson.
I just posted a web site on another post that has links to many of the tucson area things and to saddlebrooke info. It had a lot more there than I knew until I started digging. A big oerforming arts center, multiple clubhouse etc.
I liked oro valley, but the sun city community there does not have the numbers of amenities. Same with Quail Creek. I also compared the hoa fees and found them better in saddlebrooke so far. But avoid the Saddlebrooke Ranch, it is not the same community... still have a follow up visit to dove mtn area to see it another time
