Windgate Ranch home sales have been steady through the recession, reported Toll Brothers today. Homes in Windgate Ranch have been selling at a modest pace despite the economic downturn. The builder reports that it has sold 270 homes over the past five years. That is 43 percent of the 633 lots available. Plus sales are up 20 percent over 2010. Windgate Ranch is unique because it is one of the last master planned communities in North Scottsdale and the only one currently selling brand new construction homes. The other major communities in North Scottsdale including DC Ranch, Grayhawk and McDowell Mountain Ranch were established approximately 15 years ago. There is very little new construction going on in North Scottsdale. If you want to live in a brand new community in a new home in North Scottsdale, Windgate is the answer.
During the past few years there were a few foreclosures and short sales in Windgate Ranch, but they are very rare currently. That means your options at Windgate is either a resale or a new home. The distressed inventory is almost non-existent.
Windgate is a 780-acre community of luxury homes in prestigious North Scottsdale at Thompson Peak Parkway and Bell Road. It is a guard gated community and is conveniently located across from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. It is perfectly situated close to the loop 101, Silverleaf and DC Ranch. Some of the best features of Windgate Ranch is the spectacular views of the McDowell Mountains, the 12,000 sq ft community center with pools, cabanas, game rooms, event lawn, and playground. Lot sizes are ample and every single lot in the community backs to a wash. This is extremely rare for any developer built community. Windgate Ranch homes start at the mid $500’s and range to the low millions. There are forty floor plans to choose from. Solar power systems are available on most homes and are included in the price until October 9th, 2011.
