Real Stories


When Sue and her husband moved to Arizona, they were looking to fulfill their dreams of a happy retirement lifestyle.  After moving from California into a Senior Living Community, they soon found that it was “cold and unfriendly”.  In a search of something better, they discovered Sun City Anthem, where they “fell in love with the amenities, neighborhood camaraderie, the quality and style of the homes, and the friendliness of the residents.”

Living in Sun City Anthem has changed their lives and they could not be happier.  In addition to the friendships they’ve made, the couple has never been so active! “There is something new, interesting, and fun to do every day that encourages you to expand your horizons, learn new talents, and stay vital and active.”

When asked if they would recommend Sun City Anthem to others, Sue eagerly replied with “Absolutely!  This has become the best time of our lives!  Living here at Sun City Anthem is like living in a 5 Star resort – all year.  It’s like being on vacation and the best part is, we never have to pack and go home…we are already there!  Their only regret is “that we couldn’t have moved here sooner!”

The HOA formally surveys all of the residents each year. This is a comprehensive assessment of how each department in the HOA is performing with opportunities for comments.  In addition to the annual formal survey, the HOA also provides many informal surveys. We survey the participants of the large lifestyle events specifically about the event. We survey “hot topics” on the community website.  We have a comment box for input from the community and the responses are posted on the community webpage.

Are all the community activities included in the fees?
All of the facilities are provided for the use and enjoyment of the residents of the community.  However for some of the special events/activities a nominal fee is required from the participants to offset the additional financial burden assumed by the HOA for that specific event/activity.

Does the HOA have a reserve fund?
The HOA has a professional reserve study performed and updated on a regular basis that provides the basis for the reserve fund.  A reserve fund is in place and will continue to be guided by the study provided.

How often are HOA fees increased?
There is no established frequency for when the HOA fees are increased.  However, during the development period of the community, it is not uncommon for the fees to increase on an annual basis.

Does the HOA maintain all the amenities?
The HOA will maintain its own property whether through direct employees, or contracted services. However, property such as the roadways and sidewalks are property of the Town of Florence and as such are maintained by them.

Does the HOA have a community newsletter or intranet site for residents?
The community enjoys a monthly printed newsletter as well as an intranet site that is updated on a regular basis with detailed information about the community.  A weekly email is sent to residents with updates and information.  Residents can also receive text updates from the community.

Is there a process in place to get a new club chartered?
All official clubs of the HOA are chartered according to the established guidelines.

What are the rules for visiting grandchildren?
A formal guest policy is in place along with the written rules and regulations for the community.  It is recommended that each resident make themselves familiar with these documents.
