The homes of Buckeye reflect the tradition of steady growth and progress. Wonderful homes nestled within quiet, friendly neighborhoods offer the best in affordable suburban living. Home buyers can choose from new single-family residences, homes located in the historic district, or custom homes at the base of the White Tank Mountains. Choices are exceptional in the many surrounding master planned communities, as well as the neighborhood developments. Many residents, who commute to work in Phoenix and elsewhere in the area, find that they can take advantage of Buckeye’s small town ambiance while also receiving a great deal more for their real estate dollar. Two of our communities were named among the "Top 100 Best Master-Planned Communities" in 2009 by Where to Retire Magazine. Come check out Sun City Festival and Sundance for yourselves!
