Here are some options. There will be amny more in addition to these. I am assuming active adult communities are acceptable.
Trilogy at power ranch has some homes right at the $200,000 range. Trilogy is located in Southwest Gilbert and is located about 4 miles from the new freeway. There are lots of new shopping areas going in along the freeway.
Sun Lakes is located just south of Chandler. There are homes of all price ranges there. There is a lot to do in the vicinity. Very good access to freeway and airport.
Gold Canyon will have some options right at the $200,000 range. Gold Canyon is nice as it sits at the base of one of the nicest mountains in the valley. It is a bit further out, but has great freeway access. There is decent shopping within 15 minutes.
Of course I can help you out with any of these areas. I am sure there will be other agents recommending other areas also. Myself and many of the agents who will respond will have access to great tools to make your search easire. As you know this is a great time for Canadians to buy and we have helped many recently and in the past, eh...
Happy House Hunting
