4 Neighborhood Features That Increase Home Value

4 Neighborhood Features That Increase Home Value

Posted 10/17/2017

Home value is one of those things that is sometimes beyond your control. Sure, you can upgrade your home – but did you know there are features within a neighborhood that can make a home more attractive, and thereby increase its value, too? Here are the top four neighborhood features you should be looking for in your next community.

Outdoor Recreation
Between the beautiful sunsets, wildlife and warm weather, Arizona absolutely spoils all who live here. This is most evident in Arizona’s hiking trails, where cardio meets the great outdoors.

Not only does Tucson’s Center Pointe Vistoso community have an interconnected trail system on site, but its proximity to Catalina State Park offers trails for every skill level. The Meadows community in Peoria is also close to Sunrise Mountain Preserve, where family-friendly trails offer amazing hiking opportunities and views of the Valley. Best of all, Lake Pleasant – the largest lake in Arizona – is just a short drive away.

Walkability
The convenience of walking to dining and entertainment is highly desirable, and not available in many of Arizona’s suburbs. Maracay Homes keeps this in mind when selecting new locations in which to build. For example, our newest community, Rio Paseo in Goodyear, is within walking distance from one of the foremost shopping, dining and entertainment districts in the West Valley.

Parks
Having neighborhood parks fosters a sense of community and provides children with a safe place to play. In Tucson, Center Pointe Vistoso offers a park with activity lawns, shaded play structures, a path leading to a butterfly garden and more. The Eastmark community has the Eastmark Great Park with nearly 100 acres of space. And Rio Paseo park is made up of 14-acres of walking and jogging paths, barbecue grills and ramadas.

Schools
Access to quality education opportunities has a positive influence on home values – whether or not you have school-age children — which is why Maracay communities are strategically placed near highly-rated school districts in Arizona.
