It’s a premier area for tourists to stay in and experience, and it’s no wonder why.

This small populated neighborhood is also known for its expensive real estate in the Phoenix area. The median listing price of a home in Paradise Valley is over $2.6 million, with many homes selling for over $10 million.

 

Why are these homes so expensive?

 

Well, the town wasn’t truly developed until after World War II, and the homes that were built here were built on large multi-acreage lots. While Scottsdale and Phoenix were quickly growing, the residents of Paradise Valley decided they didn’t want to be swallowed by the incoming shopping centers and subdivisions. So, they incorporated Paradise Valley to be its own entity. One which enforced a one house per acre minimum. This is why the area isn’t overly populated… and why the homes are quite expensive. You are getting the most serene living lifestyle, with plenty of space, in an area that doesn’t have many homes to offer.

 

And since it’s incorporation, Paradise Valley has continued to pursue it’s drive to have minimal government interference. In fact, the local government of Paradise Valley does not accept any payment; their focus is solely on the benefit of the area.
