[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It’s not often people get to experience the best of both worlds. But for Maracay homeowners, it’s an everyday occasion. With great designs, livability and convenience, Maracay homes have the added bonus of being within minutes of major employers throughout the Valley.

In fact, Maracay’s passion for building in premier locations is validated by WalletHub’s 2018 Best Places to Find a Job list, which compares over 180 U.S. cities across 26 key indicators. Several Arizona cities – including those that are home to Maracay communities – topped the list. Cities were ranked according socioeconomic factors like median annual income and housing affordability, as well as estimated job-market strength based on the location.

Gilbert ranked number 5 on the list and is the location of Maracay’s newest community,  Marathon Ranch, opening this Saturday, June 9, and The Preserve at Adora Trails.

Marathon Ranch is close to major employers like Isagenix, Wells Fargo, PayPal, Avnet and Intel. The exclusive 63-homesite community features four, single-story floor plans that range from 3,432 to 4,345 square feet. Each home plan offers customizable options that are sure to meet the needs of homebuyers. Homes are also Energy Star® certified and include Maracay Homes’ LivingSmart® program for maximum performance and cost efficiency. With excellent schools, locally owned businesses and countless events near by, homeowners are sure to love the convenience of their new community.

Similarly, the cities of Peoria and Chandler were respectively ranked fourth and first as top locations for finding a job — and are also where you’ll find Maracay’s Mission Estates, Hawthorn Manor and The Meadows communities.

Mission Estates in Chandler is located near major employers like Microchip Technology, Wells Fargo Corporate office and Bank of America’s Chandler campus. This exclusive 26-homesite community offers the latest in premium finishes and designs. Homeowners will enjoy the location’s rural charm and proximity to downtown Chandler.

Hawthorn Manor, also in Chandler, features 84 over-sized homesites, with the typical size being 10,800 square feet. The homes in this community range from 3 to 5 bedrooms and 3,030 to 3,839 square feet. Homebuyers are able to customize any of the four floor plans to fit their family’s unique needs.

The Meadows in Peoria is located in the lively city of Peoria. It features three separate natural gas communities — Enclave, Legacy and Estates at The Meadows – situated near major employers like Younger Brothers Co. and Paychex. Each home is Energy Star® certified and features many Flex Design® options for optimum personalization. The homes’ proximity to Lake Pleasant and other outdoor recreation and amenities makes this an ideal location for those who love the outdoors.
