Fastest Growing Cities in Arizona – Buckeye – Best places to live in Phoenix


What are the fastest growing cities in
Arizona? well two cities according to the Census Bureau are the fastest growing
cities in Arizona and they are Phoenix and Buckeye. On this video we’re going to
talk about Buckeye Arizona and why it’s one of the best places to live in the
Phoenix area. Hi I’m Amy Hayslett I’m a realtor here in
Phoenix Arizona and on my channel I talk about life in Phoenix and the Phoenix
real estate market. So if that’s something that interests you, go ahead
and subscribe to my channel because I don’t want you to miss my weekly videos.
Now let’s get started. Buckeye is a Phoenix Arizona suburb located about 30
miles outside of Phoenix and according to the Census Bureau Buckeye has seen
the most growth of any city with a growth rate of 8.5% from July 1 2017 to
July 1 2018. Phoenix on the other hand during that same time frame has seen the
largest number of people move to its city with over 25 thousand people moving
to Phoenix. Maricopa County where both Phoenix and Buckeye are located has
been the fastest growing County for the last three years in a row. The City of
Buckeye is poised for further growth. Currently the City of Buckeye has a
population of 82,000 people and it’s 640 square miles is only at a 5% build-out. Compare that to Phoenix which is 517 square miles and over 1.6 million
residents. All of this makes Buckeye poised for more growth. Buckeye also has
some of the best neighborhoods to live in Phoenix. Verrado and Tartesso were
recognized as some of the top-selling master-planned communities in the
country by WCLC’s Real Estate Advisors, coming in at number 16 and number
20. Buckeye is also a great place to retire in Arizona with great senior
services and some wonderful 55-plus communities including Victory in Verrado,
Sundance Adult Village and Sun City Festival. Elite
Personal Finance named Buckeye as the number six best place to live in the
U.S. . in 2017. Housing prices in Buckeye are also among the most affordable in
the Phoenix metro area. Median home prices in the city of Buckeye are around
$265,000 versus Maricopa County which come in around $309,900. Now
Buckeye home values did go up 9% last year which is good news for
owners but it is making it a little more expensive to buy but that’s no
surprise being that so many people are moving here. Location is another reason
why so many people are moving to Buckeye. Not only is Buckeye close to Phoenix but
it is close and has easy access to many freeways including the i-10, the loop 303
the Sun Valley Parkway,, and the future interstate 11 which will connect Mexico
to Canada via Arizona and create a huge corridor for transportation and future
growth. Large nearby employers include Luke Air Force Base and the Palo Verde
Power Plant. In addition, the proximity to the White Tank Mountains leaves plenty
of room for open space for future generations to enjoy. So what do you
think, why are so many people moving to Buckeye Arizona and do you think it’s
one of the best places to live in the Phoenix area? Share your thoughts with me.
