If you’re tired of the daily routine and looking another winter snow in the face that is just around the corner in most parts of the Northeast as well as places like the South and North Dakota, maybe it’s time for a change. We are thinking about Phoenix, Arizona, folks where life is mostly blue skies and green lights and meeting new friends is as easy as simply saying ‘hello.’ This article you are going to read will target one specific adult community. But first you should know a bit about where you are going and how these active 55 plus communities in Phoenix got started and who started the ball rolling. Delbert E. Webb was the catalyst that started the whole voyage. He was born in Fresno, CA. His parents were fruit farmers. Webb dropped out of school to become a carpenter apprentice since the family was short of money. Later he became a ship fitter, but later, at the age of 23, he contacted Typhoid Fever, and his parents moved to Phoenix, Arizona where he recovered. Then in 1948, with a new license he launched his new business and the birth of his Sun City became history and one of the main reasons why this state has over 55 Active Adult Communities in the metro Phoenix, area. Webb died at the age of 75, but prior to his death, he said: “If you build it, they will come” and they did.
One of the entrepreneurs who followed Del Webb to Phoenix, Arizona was Robson Communities the builder of PebbleCreek homes. When this build is completed there will be almost 6,500 homes on the 2,300 acres. In case you were wondering if there is anybody living in PebbleCreek, recent population numbers show nearly 6,000 with the median age of 65. Another fact worth mentioning is the median income for owners is pushing $80,000 and the average household net worth is tagged at almost $490,937. A re-sale home at PebbleCreek is really affordable. These homes can also vary in size from 1,100 up to near 3,500 square feet. Also, most of the PebbleCreek re-sales are single story with a few two story homes tossed in. Homes are affordable and prices and can range from $170,000 up to and over $700,000, and they have choice options like three car garages and bonus rooms.
