Help the community by answering this question:



We are not allowed to label an area or say which is a "bad area" vs a "good area". If an agent does he/she will be violating the law and I will be concerned about the principels of that person. In addition to that the answer will be very subjective and we could only give our personal opinions.

We can only provide data and let the buyer make that determination for himself or herself. On my website I have a section with links that will provide you with schools information, crime statistics, demographics, traffic and other information that will help you determine if the area is what you are looking for or not.

This community is located very close to the Desert Ridge Market Place & City North. It has easy access to the 101 & the 51.

If you want any more information, I will be glad to e-mail to you a booklet called Buyer's Advisory. It will provide you with the addresses to websites you can research, and get the questions you are asking answered.

Dear FB:

Hi, Well, DR Horton has a good reputation. If you like townhomes, these are reasonably priced for a new home.

In the over 30 years since D.R. Horton was founded in 1978, they have delivered more than 390,000 homes to homebuyers. D.R. Horton, Inc. is a publicly traded company, listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker DH. For each of the past 7 years, they have delivered more homes to our customers than any other homebuilder in the United States. Their equity at September 30, 2009 was $2.3 billion, among the highest of the public homebuilders. This provides decent assurance for owner warranties.
(information provided from DR Horton).

If I can show you a new DR Horton model or some of the existing re-sale models , just ask.

Don't rule out a foreclosure property. This is a great time to buy. As you probably know, the $8,000 tax credit has been re-instated for first timers or those that have not owned in three years. There is now a $6,500 Tax credit for existing homeowners. Additionally if you do purchase a foreclosure property, free grant money (up to 22% of the purchase price) is available if you live in the home for periods of 5, 10, or 15 years. This makes inexpensive homes already, even more affordable. The free grant money is available through the state of Arizona. See the link for "Free Grant Money" at:

If I can answer any more questions or show you some homes or land, feel free to give me a call. I would be pleased to help you.

Regards, Jeff

Well I am not exactly sure what you mean by "good or not". You would have to be more specific. The area you are asking about is north of Phoenix in the beautiful sonoran desert and is a fairly new subdivision built since 2007.

You may view the homes at my website: Just click on Home Search and do a map search.
