Hello P. D.

As you likely know from experience, home price is really dependent on state of home/amenities, etc. Currently, average price/square foot is about $190 for both Aviano and Villa De Sorano. Villa De Sorano has not had much activity lately with just one home on the market (MLS) now and it appears for some time as it is a relatively small community.

Keep in mind, Aviano is technically in North Phoenix though not too far from Villa De Sorano. Both communities are less than 5 mins from me respectively and i'm pretty familar with them (I'm in Desert Ridge). Just fyi, Fireside which is close to Aviano also offers some pretty good comparables to Aviano.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to let me know. Happy home searching!

There are only a couple of homes that meet the criteria that you have outlined above. The average price per square foot is $189 per square foot.

To give you a wider range of data, I have generated a list of homes that are listed as currently active, pending, under contract, and sold in the last 6 months via the MLS. This list includes both Villa de Sorano and Aviano communities. I have uncovered a total of 15 listings in these 2 communities.

Of the 3 active listings, the average price per square foot is $196.21.

Of the 7 homes that have contracts but are accepting back ups, the average price per square foot is $158.85.

Of the 3 listings that are pending the pricing is $172.67.

From the listings that have closed, the average price per square foot is $!49.62.

Here is the link to view the list of homes that I have used in this analysis:

Dear Painted Desert,

Good question! This question is often asked and misunderstood by many. Price per square foot is a good gauge of where a market is at, but what many people fail to calculate properly is the additional features of a home that will great effect and through of the price per square foot numbers.

You MUST make sure that the homes you are comparing have similar features, otherwise you will be misinformed as to the correct price per square footage.

An example of this is a home with a 3 car garage versus a 2 car garage. That upgrade add value, but won't be noticed in the price/ sqft. Also, a pool, backyard BBQ, or upgrades from the builder standard, will not be realized in the price per square foot properly.

If you have any specific homes in question or a particular model in mind, feel free to contact me and I can help you with determine an accurate price per square footage for that property type.

Best regards,

Aviano is one of the communities I track. I don't track average price per sqft though. I feel median price/sqft is a better metric. Average and median are usually very close, but sometimes the average is skewed because of one or two outliers (a house that sold for too much or too little). When we look at the median we pick the house in the middle. So if a house sold for too much or too little, the median doesn't change.

For Aviano, the median sold price for the past 3 months was $154.94/sqft.

As I mentioned before I don't track Villa de Sorano as it is a very small community.

I hope this helps.
