Anyone buying a house knows the neighborhood and amenities in the area are just as important a factor as the home itself. Often one of the most difficult aspects of purchasing a home, choosing a neighborhood which fits in with your lifestyle can create a headache for homebuyers with specific criteria in mind. This holds particular weight for those 55-years-of-age and older who are trying to find the perfect home to spend their future retirement in.
While many neighborhoods are a mix of various types of people with similar budgets, this doesn’t prevent you from having a heavy metal band move next door and suddenly turn your dream home into countless sleepless nights spent making noise complaints to the local police department. Activities you are interested in you may have to commute to get to adding to the inconvenience of living in a mixed age group neighborhood. These are just two reasons why living in an age-group specific community can be the ideal option for those wishing to purchase a new home.
Victory at Verrado is an age-specific district under development in the all-age community of Verrado, a short 25 miles from downtown Phoenix. Victory is being built for those aged 55 and older. What does this mean? It means your neighbors within your district will be at similar points in their life as you are but you will still be close enough to the all-age community to keep things convenient and diverse. The 1,200 acre district is not gated or walled off from the all-age 7,600 acre development so it doesn’t feel like the walls of a castle are separating you from the rest of the world.
The community itself has hiking trails, community bars and restaurants, a spa, yoga studios, gyms, art studios and sports dens, a vineyard and chef’s garden, and much more. There are over 50 parks throughout the Verrado community, all of which are accessible to those living within the Victory district. Victory and Verrado are a golfer’s dream and more courses are in the works but the Golf Playground at The Big Patio, and the Verrado Golf Club are already open.
By the end of development of Victory, there will be 3,500 homes. These have not all been built yet and developers are constantly working on the development of new homes and neighborhoods. As this community will only be built to accommodate so many homes, it is important to get in while the getting is good.
This is no cookie cutter neighborhood we’re talking about and Victory won’t look like endless streets of the same house in a handful of colors with no architectural or aesthetic appeal. The district has several home builders to choose from, each offering various sizes and layouts so your house will be as unique as you are. Various lot sizes are available and most of them will open up to an open space or golf course so you will be able to enjoy the outdoors and not feel like your only view is the back of another building.
If you’re looking for a fantastic 55+ community, a new home, and plenty of options, Victory might be the place for you. Homes range from $250,000 and up so it is suitable for a wide variety of budgets. The district itself and the larger community it is part of have taken great pains to ensure the happiness of their home owners within the area and amenities have been specifically chosen to cater to each district. New amenities are also under construction and will continue to become available until the end of the project has been reached. The landscape of the community and its districts has also been well planned to provide fantastic atmosphere. Combined with beautiful new homes, well-planned neighborhoods, fantastic amenities, and the landscape features, you’ll know you’re choosing the best place to purchase your new home.
