New Home Community – Villages at Westridge Park

Westridge ParkYesterday I suggested new builds may be a less stressful way to go for FHA and VA buyers. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about …

Villages at Westridge Park is a brand-new gated community located near Thomas Road and 75th Avenue. Floor plans range from 1,286 to 1,894 square feet and base prices run from about $138,000 to $154,000. That’s somewhere in the $600 range for principal and interest depending on your interest rate; property taxes and insurance would be separate. And, again, these are base prices so upgrades can add to the cost.

Still, for someone paying $800 or more to rent someone else’s property, to have zero chance at appreciation, to have to ask permission to paint a well or get a pet, to have to wonder whether your owner may decide one day to sell the house and leave your family in need of a place to live …

The Villages at Westridge Park are in west Phoenix but similar options exist across the Valley. Price points will be a bit higher on the east side, but that’s just the way of the East Valley. Real estate’s more expensive out there unless you’re heading out to San Tan Valley or Florence.

Rather than take my word for it, call me today at 602-502-9693 or e-mail me at info at and we can talk about what you’re trying to find and what new home community will work best for you. Leave the multiple offer hell behind and start fresh in a new home.

Oh, and as always, DON’T GO TO A NEW HOME COMMUNITY WITHOUT AN AGENT ON YOUR FIRST TRIP!!! It’s worth your while to have independent representation.
