Ask the Expert – Most Affordable Areas in Canyon Country

| Canyon Country Magazine | October 9, 2018

The great thing about Canyon Country is that we have homes for every buyer. This is such a wonderful community because of its great schools, parks, shopping, dining, and it’s safe for families to enjoy, yet very affordable and close to work.

Canyon Country is made up of five areas (Canyon Country 1, 2 & 3 with Rainbow Glen and Sand Canyon).

In Canyon Country 1 & 2 many of the older homes are perfect for first-time buyers, as they are affordable and usually have no Mello-Roos taxes and no HOA and run from $425k – $525k for a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home between 1,000 -1,500 square feet. Many of these homes will need some updating and are perfect for a buyer to fix up to add instant equity.

Canyon Country 3 is a newer area, built from 1999 on, and it consists of Fair Oaks Ranch, which has an HOA, and the Ranch at Fair Oaks, which has an HOA and Mello-Roos tax. These homes are quality, built by Pardee Homes, and are perfect for the move-up buyer. They run between $550k-$750k for a 3- to 6-bedroom home and are as big as 2,300 -3,800 square feet.

Sand Canyon is perfect for the high-end buyer. These homes tend to have large lots, pools and room for a guest house or corral for horses, etc. They tend to sell for between $750k-$2.5m and can be as big as 5,000 square feet.


Also, a few other wonderful subdivisions are Rainbow Glen, Shangri La, Canyon Crest, Stetson Ranch, Sunset Heights and Stonecrest, just to name a few, and sell for between $500k-$700k on average. Lastly, there are several affordable condos and townhomes that run between $250k-$400k that are the perfect place to begin homeownership, build equity and move up in 3 to 5 years to your dream home.

With new developments like Aliento, Skyline Ranch, Vista Canyon (shops, dining, parks, etc.) and the new Disney Studios to be built, Canyon Country is going to be “the place to be” and should continue to see values rise for many years to come.
