There are many great communities in Glendale; I wouldn't restrict my search to only those two communities. There is Hillcrest, Patrick Ranch, Fletcher Farms just to name a few more. It all boils down to personal preference and I always tell my clients "it's a feeling and you will know when you've found the right home."
I am a buyer's broker and not only do a represent the resale market, but I am up-to-date on the new home communities.
Depending on what your needs are and what your budget is, one community might give you more bang for your buck than another. Keep an open mind, consider a lot of different possibilities and have an idea of what your "must haves" are and what things you could be flexible on.
Make sure you have a good understanding of our currently market, we have an inventory shortage.
Let me know when you want to "jump off."
