Arguably, Rio Verde is one of the quietest and most peaceful places in the United States to live. This master-planned community is ideally situated in the Tonto National Forest near the Verde River and offers a wide selection of homes and amenities to its residents.
The area is surrounded by the majestic McDowell Mountains, Sonoran Desert and high-end homes in its four major communities: the first three which are Rio Verde, Tonto Verde, and Tegavah are urbaner than the fourth one, Rio Verde Foothills, which is less city-like and more rural.
An Active Adult 55+ Community
The area has a good number of relaxation spots such as spas, gyms, golf courses, pools, and restaurants virtually all around. A notable place is the Rio Verde Community Center which consists of a gym, studios for art and dance, card rooms, a library and others. Asides from this, the Rio Verde Community Church serves the community by offering Catholic and interdenominational services.

Commercial real estate is scarce in Rio Verde Foothills area due to the predominating "country quiet" lifestyle. However, this does not mean that residents are limited in terms of recreation or shopping. Rio Verde is close to Fountain Hills and just minutes to Scottsdale which makes for easy commuting to shopping malls, fine dining, and nightlife options.
A Community That's Still Developing
Since this is still a developing community, buyers have the opportunity of choosing between getting a home or a parcel of land.
Based on this, one-acre of land can be acquired for as low as $40,000 while homes begin at $200,000 or thereabouts. The majority of the homes in Rio Verde were built in the late 90s and early 2000s.
