North Ranch community--- the area surrounding North Ranch Elementary School and falling within the Paradise Valley Boundaries are homes that were originally built in the early to mid-1980’s. They are a mix of larger single story, two story and even a few Basement homes. Many homes have more traditional curved roof tiles, rough stucco exterior’s and a mix between desert landscapes and lush lawns. Almost all of them have two or three car garages attached to the homes. Jackrabbit Park runs ½ mile allowing children in the area quick access to both play-scape park fun as well as larger fields for local soccer games.
Easy access to both Kierland/Scottsdale Quarter and Desert Ridge/City North as well as the special 85254 zip code giving residents, the ‘Scottsdale’ zip code with Phoenix taxes, services, and the Paradise Valley School District make this area a very popular real estate draw! Many homes have been upgraded from the ‘80’s styles. Inside some homes you will find exquisite travertine, tumbled marble, hand hewn wood floors, spectacular outdoor landscaping and resort like pools. If you are looking to renovate a home yourself there are still properties needing the DIY up lift or contractor renovations depending on your personal preferences!
The area also has some smaller homes and several condo/townhome communities that may be a starting point for some or a retirement options for others. We have helped many throughout the area over the years including helping short sale homes during the down turn of the market. Most short sales and foreclosures are gone from this neighborhood but on occasion we still find a seller needing to get out from under. Lenders today are more cooperative with Sellers so don’t shy away from doing a short sale if you need to!
In addition, the rental market in the area is red hot! Many homes are rented out within days of listing and average around $1/sq’ for updated properties. We have helped investors purchase and set up rentals in the area as well as many tenants move in and enjoy their home close to so many wonderful amenities.
