Avondale Real Estate Information

Built alongside the Agua Fria River in the southwestern quadrant of the greater Phoenix area, the city of Avondale and its over 75,000 residents enjoy a quiet community with an enjoyable neighborhood atmosphere. Home to a number of large tournaments and festivals, there is always something to do for residents looking to stay close to home. For the more adventurous Avondale residents, a drive into downtown Phoenix just takes a few minutes.

The Phoenix International Raceway is located in Avondale and draws thousands of people to a number of different car racing events throughout the year, most notably the Bashas’ Supermarkets 200, Checker Auto Parts 500, Able Body Labor 200, Craftsman Truck Phoenix 150, and the Subway Fresh 500 NASCAR races. The one mile, tri-oval racetrack has been in existence since 1964 and was built to replace the old track that was once located at the Arizona State Fairgrounds.

The Phoenix Goodyear Airport is a public airport that covers 789 acres of land. Its 8,500-foot asphalt runway can receive aircraft ranging from small single-engine propeller planes to large jumbo jetliners. Originally constructed during World War II as a naval air facility, it was then devoted to the storage and preservation of decommissioned military aircraft. Today, the airport serves as the temporary or sometimes final resting place for hundreds of airplanes that may not serve in military or commercial service in the future. Besides hosting a number of salvage companies, Goodyear Airport also is home to a diverse range of commercial pilot training companies that train a number of different pilots who work for airlines from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and France. Because the work done at the airport is so labor intensive, many of the local workers choose to live in Avondale because of the short daily drive and relatively quiet streets and safe community.

Residents in search of a relaxing afternoon outdoors or looking to exercise can find fun trails or winding paths at a number of local neighborhood parks, including Mountain View Park, Dessie Lorenz Park, Coldwater Park, Fred Campbell Park, Loma Linda Park, and Paque de Paz. Most people find that these parks are built on prime real estate close to their homes which is an added bonus and convenience.
