Paradise Valley Real Estate Information

Nestled comfortably halfway between Phoenix and Scottsdale, the affluent town of Paradise Valley is one of Maricopa County’s finest suburban communities boasting a population of about 15,000 people. Although the town has a relatively small population, there is a bustling tourist industry that supports tremendous out-of-state visitor arrivals throughout the year. In fact, there are twelve resorts in Paradise Valley, making it one of the state’s premier tourist destinations. Because Paradise Valley is so conveniently placed near the big cities, residents find that they can create their own urban oasis that is close to the activity of the bigger cities but without the noise and other negative aspects of living directly in Phoenix.
