Senior Living: Being Independent

Nov 15, 2017

Over the last few months, we’ve been talking about all the amazing things Phoenix has to offer when it comes to employment and lifestyle. And now that November is here, people from around the country have come to enjoy the sunshine with us throughout the winter. And some of those people have decided to stay. Did you know Peoria, AZ has been listed as one of the top 25 cities in the US to retire? More and more people are moving out West to enjoy the opportunities we have to offer here. For this reason, Arizona has become a hotspot for senior living.

There are two different types of senior living: Independent living and complete care. In this article, we’ll go over the benefits Phoenix has to offer when it comes to independent living.

Cost Matters: Getting More

Saving Money

The average independent living space in Phoenix costs about $1987 per month. Homes in independent living communities and cities start as low as $200,000! This is a huge deal, since other parts of the country offering housing areas for up to $6,000 a month. Also, our overall cost of living is cheaper. So, you’re saving pretty good money on things like food, transportation, and other lifestyle needs.

Phoenix has become a financial hub! Many investment and banking companies have expanded their locations to Arizona to service the needs of seniors and retirees. You’ll have experts close by who can help you manage and grow your money so it’ll last longer.

There Are So Many Communities!

Phoenix is a very spacious, inviting place! We have so much variety and diversity in our food, lifestyles, and jobs. Well, the same can be said for our independent living communities!

We have communities throughout the city that offer different types of housing.

Sun City, AZ


If you’re looking for a smaller, more intimate living space, several Phoenix communities offer apartments or condos to rent or buy. Unlike traditional apartment homes, these communities cater to your likes and the things that are most important to you. They offer activities for residents and are located close to shopping, restaurants and other amenities.

A few places to consider are: Brookdale Central Paradise Valley, Courtyard Towers, and The Forum at Desert Harbor.

Felecia’s Raving Fans

“We can’t say enough great things about Felecia. She did an amazing job of getting us our home. She is EVERYTHING you want in a real estate agent. She is patient, knowledgeable and easy to talk to which made us feel like she was the best person to help us weed through the market to find what we really liked. As easy going and positive she was she went to bat for us with fervor! We truly believe her number one priority was to help us find the very best house for us. Thanks to Felecia we live in a sweet house in a dynamite neighborhood that we would have missed had she not been so excellent at her job and “getting us”. Felecia is, and will forever be our real estate agent.”
