I think many of the other answers hit the nail on the head, but Dane in particular focused in on the main concern. We live near Vistancia in North Peoria, another fantastic community that many consider to be too far on the outskirts of town, and yet plenty of people live there. Many factors should come in to play to answer that for yourself personally. Do you need to commute to work each day? Are you the kind of person or family that likes to be near a plethora of restaurant and shopping choices? Or does the overwhelming beauty and amenities offered by these communities and the value, or in other words, how much home you can buy for your money, outweigh the inconveniences.
As Dane also mentionedâ€¦.short term re-salability is a consideration. Homes will tend to sit on the market a bit longer than those that are more centrally located. If you plan on being there awhile, then that may not be a concern for you.
Aside from all that, Estrella Mountain is full of natural beauty, and is in my opinion, one of the top Master Planned communities in the valley. Warm wishes in finding what you are looking for!
