Home Buying in Wittmann>Question Details

Lynne, Other/Just Looking in Chicago, IL

I keep reading about a big residential development around Wittmann, AZ. All hype?

Asked by Lynne, Chicago, IL Sat Oct 6, 2007

We are just beginning our search for land in Arizona and want to know where we can get the best investment for our $. We plan to purchase and then take our time building. We are looking at as far north as Prescott, southwest to Wickenburg.

Help the community by answering this question:


I'm certain Jay Thompson's also going to weigh in because he does a lot of land sales in Wittmann. I've not heard anything about major residential development in the area. There's an ongoing debate in the Chaparral Rancheros area (the original Wittmann, closest to US 60) about zoning standards and zoning density ... a large portion of the residents there want Wittmann to remain true to its Old West roots. Further along Patton Road, though, there are a number of smaller developments with acreage properties available.

Wickenburg's a little further up U.S. 60 as you probably know. One thing to keep an eye on as you're looking along U.S. 60 is the availability of water. In some areas there's water available (primarily via a shared well) and other places you're going to be digging a while before you hit the water table. There's also a lot of land in Wittmann and elsewhere in that area that is in a designated flood plain - another thing to check.
