Home of the Lost Dutchman trail, Apache Trail Flea Market and now debunked Buckhorn Baths motel, Apache Junction sits at the base of the majestic Superstition Mountains and is the gateway to some of the best hiking, boating and outdoor recreational opportunities within a short driving distance from most Phoenix metropolitan cities.
The image as a metropolis for winter visitors better known as snowbirds, cheap motels and rock shops is beginning to fade. New housing, strip malls and an expanded freeway are giving Apache Junction new life. People living in Apache are privy to affordable housing that comes with beautiful desert scenery and priceless views of the Superstition Mountains that normally are reserved for high end million dollar homes.
Unlike San Tan Valley, Apache Junction has easy freeway access to all points north south east and west making this city an attractive consideration not only for retirees but for first time homeowners.
Since January of 2019, 241 single family homes priced under $250,000 have closed in Apache Junction. Currently as of this writing 39 are listed for sale. Compare that to Chandler – 18, Tempe – 9, Gilbert – 2, Mesa – 52.
