One of Maricopa’s ZIP codes is among the hottest for real estate in the country, according to a recent analysis by Opendoor.
Opendoor examined MLS data in areas where it has brokerages to determine where the most homes went under contract within 90 days during the first half of the year. It ranked ZIP code 85138 in Maricopa No. 17 in the nation.
“Maricopa has been growing in popularity for homebuyers looking to live just outside the city in a newer built home,” the Opendoor analysis said. “Maricopa is a great option for homeowners who want a small-town feel with big-city amenities and close approximation to job opportunities in sectors from IT to healthcare.”
The top Phoenix-area ZIP codes aside from Maricopa included 85142 in Queen Creek, 85326 in Buckeye, 85351 in Sun City and 85375 in Sun City West.
“These hot ZIP codes show where demand from buyers is stronger than ever, and serve as a strong indicator to agents that there’s opportunity to grow their businesses and clientele in these areas,” said Will Holmes, general manager for agent growth at Opendoor. “A top feature drawing buyers this year is the weather. The vast majority of top neighborhoods are located in cities that boast warm weather year-round.”
