While not as quiet as it used to be, the town of QC, as the locals call it, is still small…especially when compared to its immediate urban neighbors of Gilbert and Mesa to the north-west. If you’re looking to live a tranquil life, surrounded by breath-taking desert landscapes and still have everything you need from top schools and healthcare, to a large selection of restaurants, shops and entertainment options, you’ll soon see why homes here are in such high demand.
Thanks to its recent growth and increasing accessibility to other parts of the south-east valley, Queen Creek property is not as cheap as it used to be, but it is still affordable when compared to other parts of metro Phoenix. Perhaps because of that relative affordability, younger families are making QC their home. According to the Town, the average age of the town’s residents is just 34.
Buying a house in Queen Creek will give you the best of both worlds. The luxury of being able to enjoy clearer air, magnificent sunsets and starry desert skies, and the knowledge that everything you could need is just a short drive away – either in town or a few minutes away in Gilbert, Mesa or Chandler. That, in a nutshell, is the attraction of Queen Creek real estate.
Because of its rural roots and the space available, larger lots are typically more available than in more densely populated parts of the Valley. One acre lots or larger are quite often available, although they do come at a price.
Once you settle into your new home, you’ll find quite a few things to do here. Schnepf Farms is a great place for a family day out, where young and old can pick juicy peaches and apricots. Queen Creek Olive Mill is another popular destination, and if you love riding, having the Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Center on your doorstep will be awesome!
Take in a show at the QC Performing Arts Center, or visit the annual American Heritage Festival where key moments in the history of the United States are brought to life.
The Queen Creek Unified School District boundary area includes the town and extends north of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. The district serves about 10,000 students from preschool through 12th-grade, and offers quality programs in regular education, gifted, special education, and early childhood, as well as career and technical, and alternative high school services.
