Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Elite Group Tempe AZ Tel: 602.710.8161 SA585680000

Sometimes looking for certain floor plans and features in homes can best be searched by the year they were built. 

Festiva Tempe Subdivision was built in 1995, by builder D.R. Horton. It is located in Tempe, zip code 85283, close to Kyrene Rd and Elliot Rd. 

The size of homes ranges between 1,245 sq.ft. to 1,800 sq.ft. Most of the lots are just under 5,000 sq.ft, and only  a few corner homes on Stephens Dr. and Dava Dr. have lots around 8,000 sq.ft.

The homes in the subdivision have five different floorplans:

Floor plan 1 (Verde) - 1,245 sq.ft. - 22 homes of this floor plan

Floor Plan 2 (Cimmarron) - 1360 sq.ft. - only 6 homes of this floor plan

Floor Plan 3 (Pecos) - 1524 sq.ft. - most popular, 32 homes of this floor plan

Floor Plan 4 (Cumberland) - 1,614 sq.ft. - 17 homes of this floor plan

Floor Plan 5 (Summit) - 1,800 sq.ft. - 26 homes of this floor plan

The Home-owners Association dues are $50 per month and cover the common area maintenance. The community has a solid Ramada and a green belt - great for picnics, daily dog walks, or staying out and enjoying the sunset. The front yards have mature trees and pretty desert landscaping.

The community is close to the South Highline Lateral Canal Trail.

Real estate sales for the year of 2019 were all above the $300,000 mark, ranging between $ 300,000 and $323,500.

For the previous 3-4 years, between 2014 and 2018,  prices ranged between the low and high $200,000 ($225,000 to $288,000). 

Festiva Subdivision is close to I-10 and Highway 60, to many warehouse type stores like Costco, Floor and Decor, IKEA and many more.

Almost everything in Tempe is within a 20-minute drive, so if you , for example, like to be in the urban down town, it's only a short drive, if you like sports activities, Kiwani's Park is within 5 minutes drive. Both Phoenix SkyHarbor Airport and Arizona State University are about 15 minutes drive.

Nice profile of homes built in the 90's.  Being so close to the airport is a big plus for those who have to fly places for work.  A

Hello Steffy - quite important information presented in a very detailed manner for homes in the Tempe Festiva subdivision.   In our area homes built in the 1990s are often considered "newer" since it is not uncommon to see homes built in the early part of the 20th century.  Knowing "local" matters in real estate.

Hi Michael Jacobs , For Tempe, those will be considered "newer" homes, too. However, there is a lot of new construction in the Valley and many subdivisions built in the last couple of years. The newer homes in Tempe are usually in small infill lots. Over the years, I have read and learned a lot from your market summaries and subdivision descriptions.

Hi Curtis Van Carter , I have a floor plans database, too, but searching by year is a fast way to have a glimpse of inventory, especially, when looking for certain floorplan features. Thanks for your comment.
