Most of the Apache Junction real estate that is available is geared towards travelers of some kind. In fact, the history of the city, which legendarily dates back to the middle of the 1800s, shows that the city has always been focused on travelers. Currently, retirees are also a focus, with many of the city's 22,000 residents being of retirement age.

Apache Junction real estate, which many people consider to be part of the metropolitan Phoenix area, is actually in neighboring Pinal county. The town is approximately 35 miles east of Phoenix, straight out on the Apache Trail. The Trail, which is dotted with buttes, mountains, and water of the Salt River, is widely held to be one of the most impressively scenic drives in all of Arizona.

Much of the new Apache Junction real estate that is available consists of detached homes that range in price from 135,000 to over 200,000 dollars. Many of these are luxury homes, in planned communities that offer many modern amenities to their residents, in the comfort of a real neighborhood. Many planned communities also offer recreation, such as community pools, basketball courts, and golf courses.

The First Piece of Apache Junction Real Estate

According to record, the first building in town was an Inn. According to legend, the town dates back much further, to the presence of a mobile Mexican family who discovered a bountiful gold mine in the mountains. In the late 1800s, a man named Waltz (nicknamed The Dutchman) supposedly rediscovered the mine, though he died without passing on knowledge of the location to anyone. Since that time, many people have searched for the mine in the mountains surrounding Apache Junction, but its true location remains shrouded in mystery.
