You should look at Eagles Nest which has some of the most beautiful lots in the entire Phoenix area for views. Not sure what your price range is but this is a high end neighborhood in Fountain Hills with million dollar plus homes. It backs up to a mountain preserve. MCO Realty is the developer.

Hi Patti!
I've been living and working in the Fountain Hills area since 1994 and boy have things changed in the lot department! We used to have a surplus and now they actually are becoming limited around these parts although there are still some available in the higher end communities. Of course, there is a premium to pay for that. I have seen some people purchasing some of the worst of the worst fixer uppers with a nice building envelope and just doing a tear down and rebuild. This can save you in lots of ways but primarily with the permitting process. Permits are much cheaper for something like this versus a build from scratch transaction. Hope that helps!

Goldfield Ranch just north east of Fountain Hills is a great neighborhood if you want a few acres. Wonderful community, beautiful views. Horse property.

Yes that's true, if you want to be near Fountain Hills but still get a lot of acreage for a reasonable price, Goldfield Ranch is a good possibility. Have a few friends living out there :-)

Dear Sky:

In follow up to my earlier answer to your other question. Prices in area up 15-20% from last year. Most homes are custom or semi custom as built on a series of ridges. The ridges offer many homes with ravine views, city light views or golf course plus mountain views. Red Mountain is the local landmark mountain. About 12 miles from Scottsdale and dining/recreation/shoping. Many $1 million plus properties in areas like Eagle Mountain. However many other homes are much lower.

On the edge of the Indian Reservation and the casino. About 60 miles from Payson and the higher elevations of pine tree country in the White Mountains.

My wife is from CT too! We love living in Arizona. There are a lot of factors that effect the price of lots. While view is one of the most popular answers, whether the lot has to be readied for building effects how much you spend after the purchase. Ideally buying a lot that has had the utilities brought to the property line saves on expenses. A level lot is also so important because that effects the price too.

I would be happy to answer more of your questions if you decide to call me. (602)628-1813. By the way, it is gorgeous, sunny and 75 degrees today! What are you waiting for??

Market Trends show that the inventory has dropped during the past 12 months, and prices are rising. Lots, especially under $100K are being sold faster than they were 12-18 months ago with very limited inventory. Lots over 150K have quite a bit of inventory available in Fountain Hills. Residential properties have increased in the price per square foot, and inventory has also dropped. Fountain Hills is entering its heaviest selling time which is between December and April/May. This link should work to show you 3rd party stats for fountain hills. You can reach out to me if you want more detailed info as I have been a Fountain Hills Resident for 12 years and understand the market quite a bit. I also work with Builders and Developers and understand what areas are best to build and what potential home values will be. http://www.armls.rbintel.com/quickview/z/85268 - Stats.

May I suggest that you visit my website Fountain Hills Up Close to find out more about our beautiful "community" and our real estate and specific neighborhoods. I am a real estate broker, I live in Fountain Hills. Our prices have strongly been influenced in the past year by what is taking place in entire Phoenix area, which is that we are leading the nation in home price increases. Our foreclosure and short sales in Fountain Hills have gone down substantially and we are seeing more traditional homes come on the market. With the reduction of short sales and foreclosures, inventory has also gone down substantially, reflecting higher prices. There are still some great prices available for purchasers looking to buy, but do know that prices will continue to go up as long as our inventory stays low. Naturally the low interest rates are also influencing buyers to come back into the market.

I hope you do take the time to visit my site and learn more about our great community. Please feel free to give me a call at 480-734-3664 or email me at aztjharris@gmail.com I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and answer any further questions you might have. Happy Holidays!
