Hi Lynn:

I left Danville about 12 years to work for the Del Webb communities in Northern California. Sun City Roseville was the first non-desert community built by Del Webb and was started in 1994 and sold out in 2000. There are 3100 homes with a golf course and all the phenomenal clubs and interest groups, as well as fitness, tennis, restaurant and everything you have come to expect from a Del Webb.

Sun City Lincoln Hills is approximately 6 miles away in the town of Lincoln and we started selling homes in that community from mid 99 to 2006. This community is 7000 homes and has 100,000 square feet in clubhouse amenities, as well as tennis, bocce, baseball diamond and a golf course. Are you a golfer? The costs are different in each Sun City since Roseville owns their golf course and Lincoln is open to the public with special rates for homeowners.

The third option is also in Roseville and it is a smaller non-golf course community which has about 900 homes and is a fairly new concept for Del Webb. It is called "The Club". The Club opened in 2005 and is still selling new homes, so you could qualify for the State Stimulus Credit (if the funds are available) if you purchase a brand new home.

A good plan would be to have a tour of each community to see where you feel most comfortable. The best part of all three is that you are close to medical facilities, shopping, theatres and restaurants with all three communities. I have worked in all three communities and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

This could be the worst move in your life unless you are a "stepford" wife. The Del Webb communities as a whole treat individuals as outcasts. They prefer people who are sheep and follow all the overwhelming "rules" of the Del Webb Pulte community. If you do nor get in line they threaten and harass you as if they taking your allowance away. You have no rights in a Del Webb community. You will definitely regret moving to any Del Webb location. .

I would not recommend The Club in Roseville. Our driveway is extremely steep and the HOA has put "a hold" on homeowners purchasing beautiful steps w/railings to get to the front door safely. Hard to believe, but true, it is beyond ridiculous and a huge safety issue. Everyone that visits us has a difficult time coming up and down our steep driveway to get to our front door. It is only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt and Del Webb states that it affects the beauty of the home and the landscaper has to spend one minute longer on edging. The rules and the enforcement of the rules is like living in prison, not a quality of life. Many retired neighbors actually police and complain about their neighbors over the most smallest of issues. The club house is very small for the 700 homes in the community. Tonight Pulte/Del Webb stated they did not realize people would use the Clubhouse and to enlarge it the residents have to pay, very poor excuse and planning for a retirement community. Do not buy here.

Hi, Yes this is a great area . Actually if u are interested I know of a home being listed mid Mar. 2010. 2 br 2 ba. If u notify before that date perhaps realtor fees could be saved which means savings to both buyer and seller. This home has no one behind only great oak trees. If interested contact socalttt@juno.com Thank you! A

I love the hot weather, I lived and worked in Roseville for many years, and now live in the Bay area and would like to move back, however I cannot afford to make a purchase in DellWeb, my question is, are there any rentals in DellWeb, like a one bedroom? that you may know of, let me know, ..... Do you know of any other Senior living communities in the area, not assisted living....I am an active senior and I am working also. Hope to hear from you and get your feedback. Thank you

Sun City Lincoln is a wonderful community - it has everything you need plus you are within driving distance of either San Francisco or Lake Tahoe. But the biggest drawback is the weather during the summer - it gets very HOT so if you don't like hot weather you won't enjoy living here.

There is a brand new Del Webb community in Roseville that has built 150 homes and will have 700 total when complete. There is a more established Del Webb community in Roseville with 3110 homes built in the mid-90s with two golf courses, a restaurant, and tons of activities. Both communities have wonderful homes, so you have your choice of new or resale.

They have a golf course, a huge swimming pool, exercise facilities, multiple club rooms for a number of different hobbies, arts and crafts. When I visited they had an investors room where they had internet connections and financial publications. I live in the next neighborhood over, I could send you their most recent newsletter and other literature if you would like.

Hi Lynne,
Del Webb in Roseville is beautiful and I would recommend going to the club house and visit.
Not knowing your situation or goals, I can't tell you if it would be a good move for you or not.
Do your homework and be sure you are comfortable with your decision.
Good luck & have a great day!!
