Ready for Warm Weather & Retirement? Arizona May Be Best

Posted on

If retirement is near and you are entertaining different areas where you want to land so you can get out of bad weather and enjoy your time, Arizona should be a top contender on your list of options. Arizona is a state where people go to enjoy retirement with  beautiful golf courses, great weather for pools, amazing scenery and more. Here are some of the benefits of retiring in AZ.

Check for Financial Benefits

The state of Arizona doesn't tax social security benefits, which allows you enjoy more of the social security money that you get each month. Talk with a financial advisor to go over all the tax advantages you will get if you are considered a full time resident in the state of Arizona when you retire, or if you have part-time residency there. The benefits will be different.

Enjoy Warm and Dry Weather

When you retire on the east coast or down in the southern areas around the United States, you can end up with humid weather, and you can also end up with chilly heat and seasonal concerns because of hurricanes and tsunamis. In Arizona the weather will be dry and enjoyable all year round, so you can enjoy your retirement.

Be Relieved of Maintenance Concerns

Living in a center designated for retirees allows you to live without the obligations of homeownership, like the following:

  • Lawn treatment and care
  • Exterior building care
  • Interior building repairs
  • Pool maintenance

These are just some of the things that you won't have to worry about when you decide to live in a retirement center, the benefits will vary on the different locations.

Enjoy Peace and Quiet

A condo, apartment or town home in a retirement village is better than one at a public facility, because you don't have to worry about families and children, college aged kids partying, nor young adults hosting get togethers.

Instead there are set rules about noise, times when people can use the common grounds and more. This way you can have peace and quiet like you desire.

Talk with a real estate agent and different retirement communities in Sun City so you can see what options are available and have openings, and to find the most desirable location for you.  You can retire without worrying about bad weather, reducing worries about money, and in an area where everyone is trying to enjoy their final years and retirement just like you are.
