Gold Canyon Real Estate
Gold Canyon, Arizona is located about 8 miles southeast of Apache Junction and is nestled at the foot of the Superstition Mountains which offers its residents thousands of square miles for camping, hiking, photography and bike-riding. Gold Canyon is the home of two of Arizona’s premier golf courses, Dinosaur Mountain and Sidewinder. From affordable housing to million-dollar homes, all price ranges can be found among its picturesque hiking trails. Once a working cattle ranch, Gold Canyon has a true Southwestern feel with horseback riding permitted throughout the community.
Easy freeway access allows Gold Canyon residents to live away from the hustle and bustle of larger urban communities and enjoy the rural lifestyle of the Southwest. Recent growth and development has brought larger businesses and shopping to the area along with restaurants, smaller shops and theaters. Gold Canyons small population of approximately 15,000 residents almost doubles in the winter with the arrival of “snow birds” seeking warmth and sunshine away from blustery northern states.
In addition to a more serene life-style, the majestic mountain views are a come-hither for many Arizonans and winter residents. Gold Canyon will see major growth in the next decade with new housing developments, golf courses and outdoor recreation facilities underway.
Gold Canyon Housing Market
An 11% decrease of available homes for sale this summer of 2016 has turned the market to a slight seller’s advantage resulting in a median price increase from $355,000 in March of 2016 to $395,000 in August 2016. However homes range from condos to mansions at all price points.
