Technically yes. The deed restrictions for Sun City state that at least one "occupant" must be 55+ years. You can be the owner you just cannot live there. If you plan to use it as a rental keep in mind that Sun City has several different HOAs depending on the property type and location.

Single family homes have one association and condos (including duplexes) are governed by several different ones. Some sections do not allow rentals, still other only allow rentals to a percentage of units.

You can start researching here: (for single family homes) (for condos and duplexes)

Contact me if you need more information.

That is a really good question. My guess is that you are speaking specificly about a 55+ community. I would think that you can however I am sure who you rent to, should you choose to rent it... must be in the 55+ age range.
