Arcadia is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the Phoenix area. The sense of community and pride of ownership is evident on each idyllic street. Many are still lined by the citrus trees that were part of some original orchards in the early 1900s. While other communities have become more modern by shrinking lot sizes and focusing less on private outdoor spaces, Arcadia is still where you will find large family homes on child-friendly streets.

While the area is clearly a mature community, the area’s residents’ average age ranges from the late 30s to early 40s, and many have children. Lying within the Scottsdale Unified School District, Arcadia children attend schools that perennially earn the highest ratings in the state. In addition, the average income is above the standard for Phoenix, with many up-and-coming professionals enjoying this cozy community that is just a handful of miles from downtown. The commute to work and play in the big city is just minutes, but from the luxurious backyards of Arcadia, the city feels a million miles away.

Buyers will quickly discover that if Arcadia is your desired location, you will find the perfect home. The community offers single-family homes from two to three bedrooms to palatial estates, with bedrooms reaching near double digits. There are also many lovely condos, apartments, and other multi-family dwelling options for those looking for a first home in a quaint and popular area. In the end, all the great features translate to a fantastic return on investment when purchasing a property in the community of Arcadia.
