This originally had been intended as a post about a new home for sale – a 2-bedroom La Paloma with a hard-to-find 3-car garage in Arizona Traditions, a 55-plus active adult community in Surprise. But the state of the market is such that we sold this particular home in less than a day in what normally is the quiet season in the Valley’s retirement communities.
Our listing, at 18221 W. Weatherby Drive inside the Retreat at Arizona Traditions, gained interest primarily because of the 3-car garage but that was far from the only amenity – granite slab counters, spacious great room, wide open kitchen with an island facing back into the great room for entertaining, large bedrooms and a fully-fenced backyard complete with a spa and a fire pit for those three weeks we call winter.
In all seriousness, the fire pit is a great feature during November, December and January when it’s not so cold that the evenings can’t be enjoyed outdoors but still cool enough that it’s worth staving off the chill.
While this one didn’t last very long, DR Horton still has brand new homes available in Arizona Traditions. You’ll need to add your own window coverings, fans and backyard landscaping but in exchange you will be purchasing a home in a cozy retirement community close to the community pool, fitness facilities and clubhouse. Just don’t sit too long deciding – prices at new builds across the Valley have been on the rise.
