Goodyear Real Estate Information

Over 50,000 people call the city of Goodyear home and prior to 2000 was the third fastest-growing place in all of Arizona. Home to a dynamic commercial and residential lifestyle, the majority of residents choose to work locally rather than commute to work in one of the bigger cities. In 2008, Goodyear won the All-America City award in recognition of its high standards of excellence and ideal lifestyle.

Goodyear’s students attend a variety of different school districts in the absence of a unified local district. The education system is highlighted by flagship campuses that are part of the Agua Fria Union High School District and the Buckeye Union High School District. Collectively, there are also seven elementary schools and several middle schools to serve the immediate needs of Goodyear’s youth.

The Phoenix Goodyear Airport is a public airport that covers 789 acres of land and receives operations from 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. The Goodyear community is the primary residential neighborhood serving the local workers at the airport. In turn, the Goodyear Airport is the area’s largest employer.

In 2006, the Cleveland Indians returned to Goodyear after an absence of several years. Today, the organization operates its spring training facility in the city in preparation for the long and grueling regular season. Occasionally, residents of Goodyear are allowed to watch scrimmages and games at the training site. The construction of the 10,000-seat Goodyear Stadium has also attracted the Cincinnati Reds to town beginning in 2010. Another recent development, much to residents’ liking, was the Shops at Estrella. The plaza provides an ideal shopping center that is close to home for most people in Goodyear.
