Which side of Sun City Grand Arizonas retirement community do you want to live on?

Which side of Sun City Grand Arizona retirement community do you want to live on?

The real estate in Sun City Grand has the distinction of being divided by the Loop-303... AND the city of Surprise has given each side of the community its own zip code.

This makes it quite easy to do custom searches for people who want to live on the "Cimarron" side (which is newer and was built mostly by Pulte homes after they bought out Del Webb) and the "Del Webb" built side of the community which is predominantly the east side of the community and where the main rec center and many of the clubhouses are. 

Please note:  There is a pocket of homes on the east side of Sun City Grand that was also built by Pulte homes so this is not an exact science unless you have a custom search made that also uses the year built as a search parameter.

Why is this a material matter to some buyers?  Well for some, they are looking for the newer construction in Sun City Grand and lean toward the Cimarron rec center side of the community.  For others, they believe Del Webb produced a better quality home than Pulte once they bought Del Webb out and therefore want to be on the Sonoran Plaza side of the community in a "Del Webb" built home.

It really just comes down to personal preference.

Anyway, I just made it easier to find the homes on each side of the highway that divides.  Click on the links below.

Keep in mind, these searches are only as good as what the listing agents put into the MLS.  As of this writing I see that one agent has put the wrong zip code into the system and therefore is one listing showing up in the wrong camp.

Also, these searches encompass all of the Sun City Grand MLS listings.  If you have a preference to which side of Sun City Grand you would like to purchase your new retirement home on, it makes much more sense to have a custom search of your own set up that will include price, size or floor plan search parameters to pair down the number of listings you have to sort through.
