Sorry, been a while since i posted; busy with other stuff as you will read. One of the biggest challenges for new buyers to Sun City AZ is we have homes built from 1960 through 1978. There are flippers doing some decent remodels, but you often pay an inflated price or sometimes get questionable work. If you buy here with plans to put your own stamp on the house, that comes with its own unique set of problems. There's way too many wood butchers out there acting as if they are real contractors. Lord knows we have found our fair share of them. We bought the home we are in in 1999 and have remodeled it from top to bottom. Personally i love the home and hate the idea of moving. But with near on 3000 square feet, it is far bigger than we need. Two years back we bought a smaller home with plans to rent during the winter months and remodel during the summer. Funny how plans don't always work out like they should. This is a long story and one that i hope will help new buyers to Sun City begin to understand some of the pitfalls. I will break it in parts so not to lose readers. Suffice to say, over the past year we used a Sun City Home Owner Association (SCHOA) approved contractor, and in spite of that, we are in a mess. I will report them to SCHOA and we will see how they handle it. I will leave you with this nugget: This contractor did shoddy and incomplete work, but that's not the worst of it. We have a contract dated this July and when we pressed him to complete the work, he emailed us a portion of said contract with language he had deleted. Really? Crappy work is one thing, dishonesty is something compeletely different. Stay tuned, i will fill in the blanks and update you as to how SCHOA handles this matter.
