Jan 3, 2023 | Community Areas, Prescott, Prescott Valley

Thinking of moving to Prescott Valley? Our Jasper community is located at the base of Glassford Hill, and so it’s no surprise that we’ve fallen in love with the area! From the endless views of mountains and desert vistas to the great amenities in the area, there’s certainly not a lack of things to love.

What exactly do we love about this area? Here’s a list of 7 of our favorite things about living in Prescott Valley.

 

7 Reasons We Love Living in Prescott Valley

  1. It’s beautiful here – If you’re not local and when you hear “Arizona” you think of dusty highways where there’s nothing to see for miles, you need to spend even just two minutes looking at pictures of Prescott Valley. This area of Arizona is breathtaking – our Jasper community is nestled below a rolling green hill, l and the surrounding Prescott National Forest offers over 950 miles of trails through lush foliage.
  2. It’s reasonably priced – Prescott Valley’s cost of living is below the national average and that of most cities in Arizona. The cost of living factors in grocery items, health care, miscellaneous goods and services, overall average of housing costs, transportation, and utilities – all things many of us have felt the pinch with recently.
  3. Downtown Prescott is chock-full of things to do – With historic buildings like the Phippen Art Museum and the Sharlot Hall Museum, and plenty of locally-owned restaurants, boutiques, and stores, there’s plenty to do. And don’t forget the events! Some popular activities include the World’s Oldest Rodeo, a folk arts festival, Territorial Days, and Frontier Days.
  4. It’s pleasantly warm, but not too hot! The Prescott Valley community is found north of the deserts surrounding Phoenix, providing the warm weather enjoyed by so many residents. But don’t worry about stifling temperatures; the altitude of Prescott Valley is about 5,400 feet above sea level, so we experience a relatively temperate climate year-round.
  5. Residents have an above-average standard of living, based on the city’s statistics compared to other cities nearby. Prescott Valley’s liability score takes into account the general cost of living, crime, house prices, and education.
  6. It’s within reach of lots of amenities and other neighboring cities, so you can access the excitement of a city when you want to. It’s only an hour from Phoenix and Sedona, and 90 minutes from Flagstaff.
  7. Prescott has some wonderful schools, so it’s a great place to start a family or move with young children. You can choose a variety of schools, including Prescott Valley School, and the Humboldt Unified School District

 

Prescott Valley is a charming, tightly-knit town that is perfect if you like the idea of combining quiet living with easy access to a faster pace of life. It’s ideal for those looking to enter a readily-built community, form friendships with neighbors, and live somewhere with four distinct seasons a year!

 

Prescott Valley is a great choice for anyone looking for a quiet town close to nature but with easy access to major cities. Want to learn more? You can find out more about our Jasper community here.
