The city of Maricopa is one that’s recently experienced a boom due to its affordability and proximity to the Greater Phoenix area. This “community with a heart” was only named a city in 2003, but has kept up with the growing population and now the area is home to a wide array of parks, recreation areas, and libraries, in addition to new neighborhoods, like our Sorrento community.
If you’re thinking about making your home in the Phoenix-area, Maricopa makes a great place for first-time buyers:
The beauty of Arizona’s deserts and mountain ranges will envelop you when you settle down in Maricopa. While generally flat within the city, the nearby mountain ranges that surround it make for a serene setting and the subtropical desert climate mean lots of sunshine and warm days.
Part of the city also falls within the Ak-Chin Indian community’s boundaries and the tribe helps maintain a large part of the economy there, thanks to their continued operation of the Ak-Chin Regional Airport, an industrial park, and casino.
Convenient to Schools and Major Employers
Location, especially the distance to work and schools, play a big role in any home-buying decision. When you live in Maricopa, you’ll be close to some of Arizona’s largest employers, including Walmart, Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino, Volkswagen Proving Grounds and more. Schools are nearby as well- everything from public schools to Montessori schools can be found in the area.
Plenty To Do for Adults and Kids
Just because Maricopa is a smaller city, doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to experience. Events like the Maricopa Salsa Festival, Founder’s Day Celebration, and Holiday Homes on Parade are a few of the special gatherings that help give this community its tight-knit feel.
Adults can also slip away and have their own fun at Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and resort, or spend the day at the golf course. The family can also enjoy short drives to Chandler and Casa Grande, hang out at the massive Cooper Sky Recreation Complex or indulge their inner adventure seeker by going hang gliding or taking a flight with Arizona Soaring.
When you make the leap from renting to owning at Sorrento, you’ll enjoy living in a growing city with a great location and plenty of opportunities for family fun. Take pride in being a homeowner in the best setting for you and your loved ones and let Starlight be your guide.
