    I will be visiting next week, and am planning the big move within a year. But--can I rent an apartment at Sun City for the first few months to check out the pros and cons?

    On I read that RCSC membership is for SC property owners only, but that renters can buy a Privilege Card. Is the cost still $60 per month, and does the card allow access to everything?

    Thanks to all.

    Be sure to go to the Visitor Center located across the courtyard from the Bell Library. They have lots of info about SC and the surrounding area. They also have a FREE bus tour of SC and just might (very strong might) have space available when you are here. The Bus tour is very popular and fills up fast. I will be working there this Wednesday afternoon (12-28-2016). The main Visitor Center is being remodeled and is now in a temporary "building" - still by library.

    Realtor and Trulia also have Sun City rental listings, with photos.

    Yes, both good sites as well as Zillow for finding rentals and sales. They are pretty thorough and Zillow usually has a link to the Maricopa County Tax Assessor site.
