Rancho Santa Fe, Avondale, AZ 85392

Why I love selling homes in Rancho Santa Fe, Avondale, AZ 85392? People are looking for larger lots, excellent schools and space to spread out. 

 

 

Homes in Rancho Santa Fe were built in the 1990's which I have found to mean larger lot sizes, bigger secondary bedrooms, and massive amounts of playgrounds, walking paths, parks, greenbelts. This community is fortunate that it is in the Litchfield Elementary School District delivering on fabulous schools. Homes are single and 2 story ranging from 1,290 sq ft all the way up to 3,494 sq ft. Home price today are ranging between $201,000 and $369,000.
