San Tan Valley Subdivision Comparison 2015

by Brandon on February 5, 2015

San Tan Valley Subdivision Comparison photoIn this San Tan Valley Subdivision Comparison report for 2015, we take a look back at the full year of home sales in 2014 and separate out the biggest San Tan Valley subdivisions to compare them against each other. Some of the key factors we look at are: Days on Market, Average Sales Price, Average Price-per-Square-Foot, and Total Sales. Not only will this research help prospective home sellers in each subdivision get a clearer idea of what their San Tan Valley home is worth, but this report is also meant to help prospective home buyers see which community may best fit their family’s budget.

San Tan Valley Subdivision Comparison

All the graphs and charts below are interactive, so feel free to hover over and click on any of them.

Here’s a complete list of all the subdivisions surveyed in this comparison: Cambria, Castlegate, Circle Cross Ranch, Copper Basin, Encanterra Country Club, Ironwood Crossing, Johnson Ranch, Laredo Ranch, Pecan Creek, Rancho Bella Vista, San Tan Heights, Skyline Ranch, Solera @ Johnson Ranch, and Wayne Ranch.

Total Home Sales

Which community was the most active in San Tan Valley in 2014? The winner in that regard by a large margin is Johnson Ranch with 341 home sales in 2014, and that is with Solera @ Johnson Ranch (a 55+ community) home sales being excluded from the total. Following in second place is Pecan Creek (includes both Pecan Creek North & South) with 231 home sales. Combined, these Johnson Ranch & Pecan Creek accounted for an impressive 33% of all home sales in San Tan Valley in 2014.

Average Days on Market

Cambria wins the award here with the shortest Days on Market, which means the homes sell quicker, and Cambria does it with a healthy margin too. Cambria’s average DOM was 54 days, 13 days better than the nearest subdivision, Rancho Bella Vista, which averages 67 days. Most of the San Tan Valley subdivisions hover in the 70 days on market range, except the previously mentioned two subdivisions, and the bottom three: Encanterra with a 95 day average, Ironwood Crossing with a 98 day average, and Solera @ Johnson Ranch with a 122 day average.

Average Sales Price

While Cambria wins the Days on Market challenge, it falls to the bottom of the pack here, with an average home sales price of $138,550 in 2014. The community with highest average sales price, by a margin of more than $120k is Encanterra Country Club, with an average home sales price of $340,834. Two other communities break the $200k barrier, and they are Ironwood Crossing and Solera @ Johnson Ranch. When you combine the DOM from above with the average sales prices here, it makes sense why the average DOM for Encanterra Country Club, Ironwood Crossing, and Solera @ Johnson Ranch have the highest DOMs, it’s because they also sell for the highest price. And as a general rule of thumb, the more expensive the real estate, the longer it will take to sell.

Average Price per Square Foot

No surprises here, the communities with the highest average price per square foot are Encanterra Country Club, Ironwood Crossing, and Solera @ Johnson Ranch. But one interesting note, is that Cambria actually gets the fourth-spot, meaning the price per square foot in Cambria is the fourth-highest in San Tan Valley, even though the average home sales price is the lowest.

Which is the best San Tan Valley Subdivision?

With all the factors that make up a home purchase decision, there is not way we could answer that for you, but hopefully the above research helps you in making that decision. San Tan Valley has a lot to offer, whether it be a huge master planned community like Johnson Ranch, or either of the 55+ communities like Encanterra Country Club or Solera @ Johnson Ranch.

If you’re thinking of purchasing a home in San Tan Valley, the best thing to do is not only get pre-qualified to see how much home you can afford, but to schedule an appointment to tour some of the homes for sale that match your needs.

If you’re thinking of selling your San Tan Valley home, the good news is that prices have made substantial increases over the last 36-months, so now may be a good time to sell. To find out what your San Tan Valley home is worth, click here.

Which Subdivisions Weren’t Included

The following subdivisions didn’t have enough sales to be included in the report, but nonetheless, are subdivisions within San Tan Valley: Bonanza Highlands, Las Praderas, Meadow Vista, Milagro, Moon Shadow, Morning Sun Farms, Ocotillo Trails, Quail Hollow, Skyline Vista Ranch, Sun Valley Farms, Superstition Views, Taylor Ranch, Valley of the Sun Estates, and Vineyard Estates.

San Tan Valley Market Report for 2015:

Number of Homes Sold

Here’s a quick graph that outlines the number of home sales that occurred in each month in San Tan Valley, AZ. Hover over any of the dots on the line graph to get the exact number of sales for the given month.


As you can see from the above graph, sales were very slow in January, started picking up in February, and then shot up in March where it remained steady for a good chunk of the year, even through July (the hottest month of the year!). Another surprise were the number of sales in December, normally a slow month of the year, but as it turned out, more homes sold in December than four of the other months in the year. In 2014, the average number of sales per month was 147.

Average & Median Price / SQFT

The graph below shows you both the average price-per-square-foot and the median trend line for San Tan Valley, Arizona. The blue line is the average price/sqft and the red line is the median price/sqft. The median values are used here to help normalize any spikes (up or down) that sometimes occur averages.


The overall average for the year in San Tan Valley was $83.95/sqft, and as you can see, the values stayed in the $80′s all year except in January where the average dipped down to $79.14/sqft. If you have a home in San Tan Valley that you are considering selling, you can safely multiply the square-footage of your home by $83.95 to get a ballpark estimate of what your San Tan Valley home is worth. Keep in mind, this does not account for upgrades, renovations, pool, etc. that your home might have. To get a precise value on your home, contact us to request a customized home valuation. While the average price-per-square-foot remained steady in the $80′s all year, it is worth noting the highest single value we saw in 2014 was $279.84/sqft, and the lowest single value was $28.88/sqft.

Average & Median Sales Price

Here is how the average sales price looked in San Tan Valley last year, and how it compared with the median sales price (red line).


The overall average sales price in San Tan Valley was $170,597. The average sales price trend is moving up, with a particularly big jump in the last quarter of the year (October, November, December), which is a bit unusual for that time of year. The most expensive home sold in San Tan Valley during 2014 went for $640,000, and the most inexpensive home sold for $37,000.

Average Days on Market

The bar chart below represents the average Days on Market for each month of the year last year. The overall average for the entire year was 75 days on market.


As you can see, for the first 4-months, homes were selling at a slower pace than the rest of the year, with a minimum DOM of 79 days and maxing out at 86 in January. But once May rolled around, the average DOM dropped significantly by 11-days, and stayed below 80 for the remainder of the year. If you are thinking about selling your San Tan Valley home in 2015, it is worth noting that it may take upwards of 2.5 months before your home sells. That’s not to say it cannot sell in 1-day, and the trend is a declining trend (which is a good thing), but the average for the whole year was 75 days, and even during the last quarter of the year, the average was still at 72. A declining DOM and an increasing average sales price are both very good for home sellers heading into 2015, but it is also a good idea to correctly set expectations.

Power Ranch Real Estate photoThis is the official Power Ranch Real Estate Report for 2015. In this report we look back on the full calendar year of 2014, at all the Power Ranch homes that sold during the year, giving you a breakdown at the subdivision level to help you in purchasing or selling Power Ranch real estate this year, 2015. In this real estate report, we look at the various key metrics for each subdivision in Power Ranch, including days on market, average sales price, average square feet, average price per square foot, and overall home sales. Photo by Show Appeal Realty

  • Total number of homes sold in 2014: 328 (21 townhouses and 307 single family detached)
  • Average price-per-square-foot: $116.90/sqft
  • Average home sales price: $249,325
  • Average home size: 2,133 square-feet

Average $/SQFT, by Subdivision


The Loft’s at Power Ranch leads the pack with the highest per-square-foot average on homes sold in 2014. The Timbers as well as half of the Power Ranch subdivisions all averaged above the $120/sqft mark too. With half of the communities above $120/sqft, and half below it, the average was still very tight across the board, with less than $15/sqft separating The Loft’s from Mountain View.

The Loft’s are the only townhouse subdivision in Power Ranch, all the other subdivisions are single-family-detached houses. Because these two types of real estate are different in number of ways, it is worth looking at how they compare in regards to average price-per-square-foot. For townhouses in Power Ranch, the average is $125.91/sqft, and for single-family, the average is $116.52/sqft.

Average, Min & Max Days on Market (DOM), by Subdivision


The chart above shows all the Power Ranch subdivisions and their respective average Days on Market. Sometimes the “average” can be a bit misleading, so we have also added in the minimum and maximum for each subdivision too. These minimums and maximums simply show of all the properties that sold in Power Ranch in that particular subdivision during 2014, which single property sold the quickest (lowest DOM), and which took the longest to sell (highest DOM). Some of the subdivision names can be a bit hard to read, but if you hover over any of the names or the bars in the bar graph, you can see exactly which subdivision is in target, and the specific DOM numbers. The four subdivisions with the best average DOM include Loft’s at Power Ranch, The Orchard, The Grange and The Timbers.

If we compare the townhouses and single-family houses, we again see a sizable difference between the two when it comes to days on market. For townhouses in Power Ranch, the average DOM was 36 days, and the average for single-family-detached homes was 68 days.
