Today I want to tell you about the only Pulte Del Webb guard gated community for active adults in Las Vegas.  Solera is approximately 7 miles from The Strip and the airport.  It is located in the Southeast portion of the valley with great mountain views to enjoy.

Solera at Stallion Mountain has a real small-town feel about it.  There are only 838 homes and - you can still purchase a brand new home at Solera. There are five models to choose from ranging in price from $134,990 to $180,990 with square footage from 1155 to 1716. These are base prices and depending on how far along construction is, there are options to choose from.  Some models offer an option for a third bedroom or den.  There are also resale homes available.  All homes are single story. Most homes are two bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage.  Resale prices range from $105,900 to $269,000 with square footage from 1157 to 1718.

There is a very attractive 10,000 sq.ft. recreational facility.  Other amenities offered are an outdoor pool, tennis courts, bocce courts, fitness center and aerobics area, locker rooms and multi-purpose rooms.  The activities and clubs offered could keep you really busy.  Association dues are $100.00/month.

Just a thought - If you are considering retirement in the next couple of years this might be a great time to purchase your next home.  It is really a Buyer's market and you could possibly save quite a bit by making your purchase now. 

Please contact me for any information I may not have included that would help you to choose Las Vegas as your retirement destination.  I'd really like to hear from you so I can answer your questions and interests in my next post. Have a great week.

Sun City Summerlin is a 2,530 acre active adult community with approx. 7,779 homes.  Sun City is also conveniently located within 30 minutes of the airport and very close to shopping and medical facilities.

You will really enjoy the tree-lined streets and wonderful mountain views.  All of the homes are single story and there are some townhomes (similar to a duplex). Some homes back to the golf courses giving an even more expansive view.  There are quite a few models to choose from with square footage ranging from 1,021 sq.ft. to over 3,000 sq.ft.  The annual homeowners fee is $1128.00 at this time.

There are four social centers all offering a great many facilities, such as indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, exercise rooms, billards room, walking tracks, just to name a few.

There are three 18-hole golf courses, Palm Valley, Highland Falls and Eagle Crest.  These are semi-private courses offering several different golfing memberships to Sun City residents.  You will receive assistance in determining the package that best fits your needs based upon the amount of golf you plan to play.

As you can imagine, there is so much more to say about this lovely place. Please send me your questions on this or any other age-qualified community in Las Vegas.  I'll be happy to hear from you and pleased to answer your questions
