If you are that interested; you should enlist a Realtor to show it to you:
Probably no one can answer all your questions.
Oh, you also did not identify the property, so NO ONE can answer your questions.
The home on Leland is a short sale that already has an offer on it. Unfortunately, when a short sale receives an accepted offer the agent is required to move the listing to AWC (Active With Contingencies) and as a result it still shows up as active on most websites available to the general public.
The wash poses no threat whatsoever. The only area that is considered to be in the 100 year flood plain is the subdivision of Desert Cedars. This home is in Senita. The wash actually adds value to the property as their are no neighbors behind you. I have lived in Maricopa for 10 years and have never even seen water in this wash.
If I can be of further assistance, let me know.... more
Millie, Almost NO ONE who lives in Maricopa works in Maricopa. Unless it is in fast food or retail. You would have to travel 45miles or more to find work in your field. I live in Maricopa and have for three years now. I love it, but some folks DON'T like the commute. It is very congested as there is really only one way to get out and in from each direction. Further, if you don't know what dairy farms smell like, when you visit Maricopa you will surely find out. The town of Maricopa has that COW smell almost all the time. They are trying to fix it, but haven't been successful yet.... more
Wide open question based on the house size, style of living etc. The lower end in an occupied house would be in the $200 range up to $500 for a large 2 story home. I know people that get by on less and others that pay more but I suspect a lot of bills are between $200 and $350 for decent sized homes that are used.
The above is for the peak demand summer months, remember we don't have much heat demand so our season is flipped compared to many other areas.
Only you can make that decision. What you should do is visit the area and see if it is the type of place that you would like to live. You can check with the local police dept. about crime states and check out the schools on the internet to help you.... more
Hey this is a great retirement state lots of huge shopping malls, listed among the nine safest states, chech crime statistics to verify, very disciplined state, home of Hershey chocolate factory and best of all home of the worlds greatest football team the Pitsburgh Steelers,... more
The area is newer with much of the build up in the last 8 years. Has shopping, but far from the central commute area making rental more difficult. Renters want to live closer to work. This is also a reason that home prices are lower in Maricopa.
Renting in the central areas is always easier.
