Arizona Lifestyles: Mountain Side Properties

Mountain LifestylesMountain side properties in Arizona are a rare commodity!

Most people want to be within 1 hour of the cultural hub and job centers of the Greater Phoenix area, but that is only the beginning of where the views start to come alive in the Valley of the Sun. The views get better the further out you go! Newer homes are always in high demand while previously lived in homes take a little longer to sell due to the “personal preference” choices that are made during building.
