Homes For Sale In Arizona: Where You Should Be Looking

Getting to know a neighborhood that you could potentially call home takes research and lots and lots of visits. From the initial drive-by to a more thorough walk around the streets, choosing a new home is about more than how it looks, but also how it makes you feel. However, knowing where to look when searching for homes for sale is the first major hurdle. 

If you have your sights set on finding homes for sale in Arizona, those who were born and raised here will tell you that you can’t beat the weather. And it’s true. The Valley of the Sun has no shortage of sunshine and even in the summer when you have to wear oven mitts to touch the steering wheel, you have the desert monsoon storms to cool it down. 

Whatever reason you choose to live in Arizona, we’re happy you’re here! At Porchlight Homes, we’re all about helping you discover the ideal home for your unique lifestyle. From the charm and tranquility of a vibrant, established community rich in heritage to the perfect east valley location to call home, think of house hunting as exploring the endless possibilities for your most memorable moments.

So, where to? We have a few ideas. Let’s spotlight these Phoenix suburbs: 

  • Buckeye
  • Scottsdale
  • Tempe
  • Gilbert


Buckeye is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s crowded. With communities like
Verrado, located in Buckeye, you’ll find a quaint small-town feel that continues to attract families who want to live in a place that values community. Entertainment and amenities right outside your doorstep? Bonus! Some of the many reasons why people love living at Verrado include location, parks, jobs, schools, and recreation.



Scottsdale has always been known as a great place to raise a family, and it’s downtown area has nightlife and restaurants that attract young professionals. Many neighborhoods have high walkability with more micro-urban communities popping up, like our
modern craft condominium neighborhood replete with soaring ceiling heights and spacious floor plans thoughtfully designed for your unique lifestyle.



Many people know Tempe as the home of Arizona State University, which makes it a desirable city for students and young professionals. However, once you’re off-campus, you’ll find beautiful neighborhoods ideal for families. In fact, we’re building Tempe’s first urban craft community featuring two-story townhouses with chic architecture and quick access to shopping and dining. With so much to do and see, Tempe is a familiar place to call home.



If you’re all about inviting architecture and lush greenbelts perfectly complemented by comfort and affordability, then Gilbert is the place to be. This city has something special that keeps attracting more and more families who love to call this place home. With easy access to family-friendly entertainment and restaurants, it’s no wonder our Eastpoint community is sold out.
