I live in Chandler (South East of Phoenix) and when I watch the news we and Queen Creek are generally a couple of degrees cooler. I don't think it makes a big difference in the grand schemes of things. The outskirts of the valley tend to get cooler but can also get hit hard when thunderstorms roll in. Hope that helps! ... more

Ahwatukee! It's only 10 minutes from the airport. The schools are in Kyrene School District, which is the highest ranked district in the state. Nestled next to South Mountain for tons of outdoor hiking/mountain biking. Mountain Park Ranch is an national award-winning master-planned development.
Warmest Regards,
Jennifer Ferguson

There are many desirable areas in metro Phoenix and answers to your questions should be provided over the phone due to the depth and length of possible answers, and for allowing you to ask additional questions. I'm an AZ native and have 29 years experience serving Valley homebuyers and would be happy to provide you with information. You have many choices on where to "retire." Please give me a call and let's chat.

Hi Carrie!

I totally agree with Jay - define "nice" for us, and then we can give you some specific responses. And I also agree with him that the greater Phoenix area has a VERY nice variety and selection of Active Adult (55+) communities. If you would like to see homes that meet your parameters, including features, prices, areas, mapping, descriptions, amenities, in your price range, etc., I'd be happy to set up a search profile and website/portal for you. Just let me know.

All the best!

The short answer is not much. Often around 2 weeks or even less. It's unfortunate, unfair, etc..

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...

Call the REO managers at the bank. That list is a pretty tough one to pull together too.

Steve Belt answered:
Smog from LA is very well dispersed by the time it gets past Palm Springs. In bound, from the west, our biggest "smog" problem is really dust from the desert floor on windy days (which are rare enough). If you drive from Phoenix to LA, you stop seeing "smog" about 40 miles west of Phoenix, and don't see it again until around San Bernadino. ... more
