Verrado is a modern-day “hometown” located just 25 miles west of downtown Phoenix in Buckeye, AZ. Why am I writing about it? Well…because I have recently sold a couple of homes in the community and I can see why people LOVE IT!
I am not a “Verrado Real Estate Specialist”. I sold several homes when the community was first starting…and recently sold a couple more in the last few months…but I sell homes in many other parts of the Valley. I think that is what gives me the ability to look at this community objectively. Many agents “live and work” in the neighborhood…but do not have any idea what the competition is outside their community. I sell homes in a variety of neighborhoods…so I am able to see the pros and cons of each area.
Having said that…I think Verrado might be a good choice for many of my clients.
It has been a long time in the making…and definitely has seen the ups and downs like the rest of the Metro Phoenix real estate market…but I have to say…it is pretty cool.
You will find everything from affordable entry level homes to hillside luxury homes in the community. There are resale as well as new build options.
One of the things my last clients liked is that there are number of parks in the community. Most homes are within two blocks of a park. And they have a GREAT number of homes with front porches. If you are from the Eastern United States you likely think…so what? Well.. Metro Phoenix area homes typically do not have porches. Most outdoor living is done in the backyard. So this is unique to the area. In fact, the only other area I can readily think of that has as many “friendly” front porches are the downtown Phoenix historic districts.
The other BIG draw to the community is that it is right up next to the White Tank Mountains. Not only are the views awesome…but within minutes you can be hiking in some of the most beautiful Arizona Deserts you have ever seen. Verrado offers six miles of pathways throughout the community connecting neighborhoods to one another. An additional 15 miles of trails into the White Tank Mountains can be found within the community.
Like to golf? Well…there is a daily-fee course that winds through Verrado’s foothills. The Raven is an 18-hole championship course…right in your own backyard!
Last time I was there we had lunch at the Verrado Grille. It was good service and good food…and we were seated in a friendly bar with views of the mountains. Not bad…
There is literally a “Main Street”…with a drugstore, market, wine store…and pretty much everything else you might need for day to day life. Of course…a mile or so down the I-10 freeway you will find all of the modern stores….like Wal-Mart and so on. But if you need to mail a package, fill a prescription or get some milk…no need to leave the community!
Of course there are schools as well! Verrado boasts exceptional learning for grades K-12.
So…if you are looking for a “Mayberry” like community…with all the amenities of the city…let me show you what Verrado has to offer!
