Why Phoenix is a Top Choice for Active Adult Homebuyers


Why Phoenix is a Top Choice for Active Adult Homebuyers

From the beautiful sunsets to the comfortable weather year-round, Phoenix is quickly becoming a top choice for active adult home buyers, due to the many amazing features that it has to offer. Whether you are new to Arizona or already consider yourself a local, explore these seven exciting reasons that make Phoenix a top choice for active adult home buyers, brought to you by Trilogy, one of our diverse communities in Vistancia.

1. Close location to family and friends, but plenty to keep you busy

Many of our residents say that they enjoy the flexibility of being close to their families in the other Vistancia communities, while still having the 55+ resort-like amenities at Trilogy. Take a break and unwind at the outdoor resort pool that is strategically positioned to face the stunning Sonoran Desert scenery. If you really want to take a break from the grandkids, then visit V’s Taproom for their signature drinks and craft beers.

2. Unparalleled Weather

Don’t let the weather stop you from enjoying your favorite outdoor activities. According to NOAA, This past November in Phoenix had an average temperature of 71.2 degrees. For a month that is considered to be quite chilly across the country, it’s nice to be in a place where you can still wear your shorts when you tee up. This comfortable temperature range allows you to stay active all year long, and enjoy Trilogy’s active adult amenities such as the Golf Club and course located within the community.

3. Downsizing or Upsizing – Find your perfect Floorplan

Our sales team frequently hears how happy our homebuyers are to be able to downsize to a more intimate space as we offer smaller footprint homes, starting at 1,392 sq. ft. and going up into the 2,700 sq. ft. range.

4. Affordable Cost of living

An often-cited reason for moving to Phoenix that we hear from many of our homeowners is the lower cost of living compared to some other regions of the country. In fact, the cost of living in Phoenix is 4% lower than the National Average, according to PayScale. It’s no wonder active adults who are retiring are making their way Phoenix. Being able to save money on daily living expenses and to be able to put that money into your “activities fund”, is always a plus. Instead of spending it on property taxes, spend it on coffee at Café Solaz or any of the other restaurants within the Trilogy community.

5. Proximity to Great Hospitals

Our homeowners enjoy being close to the many great hospitals in the Phoenix area. From our national ranked Mayo Clinic to the Banner University Medical Center, Phoenix has well-known hospitals that are favorable amongst our members, keeping you on your feet and staying active all year long.

6. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but still close enough!

Located just outside of Phoenix, the Trilogy community is the perfect distance from downtown. Trilogy homeowners have mentioned that the community’s location gives them the best of both worlds. Living just outside of a major city allows residents to live in their own personal oasis, detached from the (sometimes chaotic) activity of downtown Phoenix. Live in peace and seclusion with the freedom to venture out and experience the downtown scene whenever you want to.

7. The Sunsets are Stunning Here

The Phoenix sunsets are always a sight to appreciate. This is something that is enjoyed by many, as our sales team is continuously receiving feedback from our residents about this spectacular event that happens every night. What better way to enjoy the Phoenix sunset than from the trail, on your bike or in your running shoes. The Discovery Trail is a trail within Vistancia that features a collection of unique discoveries and outdoor fitness areas set within the natural beauty of the Sonoran desert. Captivating desert views and well-manicured common areas make the trail perfect for intense workout runs, relaxing strolls, or even quiet picnicking.
