Sun City Mesquite Information
This community is built by Pulte/Dell Webb in Mesquite, Nevada. This master plan is approximately 2,014 acres in size. Sun City Mesquite is being built within this master plan on 812 acres. Also included will be 167 acres of conventional housing without age qualification. An 18 hole Gary Panks designed golf course is a central feature. Upon completion, this community is projected to have 4,600 homes, including 3,600 homes in Sun City Mesquite. The grand opening for the public was June 16th, 2007. It offers similar amenities to other Del Webb age restricted communities such as golf, clubhouse, exercise room, club rooms, tennis and bocce ball
Below is a showcase of some of the currently listed properties in Sun City Mesquite. This information is updated every 24 hours.
When this project opened what it offered had two potential advantages over similar developments in the Las Vegas area, price and the ability to have a typical Pulte/Del Webb community only in more of a small town environment. There are still, in my opinion, two basic advantages. They have changed somewhat. The small town advantage is still there for those that prefer it. The price advantage is gone as similar homes in the Las Vegas area are now at comparable levels, or even lower. One additional advantage now is that Sun City Mesquite is now the only age restricted community in the area selling new homes that offers comparable home sizes and options that are on the scale of the larger age restricted communities in the Las Vegas area. There are two new developments, Regency at Summerlin and The Heritage at Cadence in the Las Vegas area as well as Ardiente which is still selling new. None of the new Las Vegas area age restricted communities are on the scale of the Sun City’s. I drove the community with my GPS and found that the elevations of the current construction at this community range from 1,750 ft. to 1,850 ft. above sea level.
Note that several new floor plans have been added with also several discontinued. The new floor plans are a drastic departure from what Pulte/Dell Webb has offered in the past. Significant structural options have not been a part of the Pulte/Del Webb philosophy. Now there are an incredible number of customizations available.
Current selling prices for both new and resale, over the last year run between $125 and $190 per sq. ft. That starts somewhat lower than the median selling prices per sq. ft. for the Sun City communities in the greater Las Vegas area. I do not have any reliable data to support it, but my guess would be that adding in the normal, average, lot premiums and upgrades, the prices in Mesquite are probably close to those resale options in the Sun City communities in the Las Vegas area.
Sun City Mesquite has 22 single story home designs ranging from 1,241 to 3,115 sq. ft. Base prices range for the current models, at the time of this writing, June 9, 2017 are between $185,990 and $332,990. The sizes of these current models (10 in all) range from 1,241 to 2,514 sq. ft. I know this development well and have represented many buyers here. It is a beautiful community with great mountain views and wonderful topography. Many lots will be at elevation, looking down into the community as well as out into the valley Contact me at the email or phone number below with any questions you may have.
This is a newer and very interesting option to other age restricted communities, Del Webb and otherwise, presently available in the Clark County, Nevada area. It may also appeal to prospective buyers that may otherwise pick another location in the southwest. I would guess that the travel distance from this community to the strip/airport area in Las Vegas to be around 100 miles. Pulte represents 80 miles to Las Vegas and that probably is correct, but that would likely not be from the site of the community to the most likely destinations in the Las Vegas area. Mesquite is also around 30 minutes from St George Utah, a larger and more developed community with shopping and other services that Mesquite lacks at this time. Mesquite itself is a nice clean city with mostly newer construction. In the mid 1980’s Mesquite was a relatively quiet farming community with a few businesses catering to the travelers along I-15. The population at that time was around 800 people. The population has increased to over 19,000 with most of that increase coming within the last 15 years. The weather in Mesquite is similar to Las Vegas with summer and winter high temperatures about the same. Night time lows are somewhat cooler.
With the rapid growth of Mesquite over the last few years, much of the residential and commercial here is very new. There is a great deal of new commercial development, particularly on the west side of I-15.
There is quite a bit of development in the area of Anthem, Mesquite (master plan being called Anthem). A new hospital is within a mile of the community.
Pulte paid, according to tax records, around $40,000.00 an acre for their land here. Equivalent land inside the Las Vegas Valley would have run them over $500,000.00 an acre at the time of purchase. This very well explains the move in this direction. Land prices have subsequently dropped considerably in the Las Vegas area since. According to reports, they also looked at land in the Pahrump area as well as in eastern Arizona before deciding on Mesquite.
