Affluent lifestyles and upscale living in a gated, golfing community are all part of the Ancala experience. Located in the shadow of Scottsdale Arizona's McDowell Mountains, this prestigious collection of custom built, multimillion dollar luxury homes average 3000 to 4000 square feet in size, and they encompass 850 acres of golfing pleasure, mixed with breathtaking desert views and mountain vistas. The first homes were available as early as 1994, though the bulk of Ancala's construction took place from the middle 1990s on through 2003, with some construction still continuing today.

Many homes in this luxurious community top the million dollar mark, though prices can vary from $500,000 in the western sections (built by Maraclay Homes), to as much as $6 million dollars for the newer mansions in Ancala's northern region; average values generally settle in the $800,000 range. Ancala is conveniently located on East Via Linda near Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard on the northeast side of Scottsdale, placing the community within the Scottsdale Unified School District and less than a mile from the local schools. Ancala is also within minutes of the Mayo Clinic, numerous shopping outlets, and miles of hiking and nature trails winding through the McDowell Mountains.

Average $/SQFT by Month

The graph above shows the average price-per-square-foot for homes sold in Ancala during the first 6 months of 2014. Outside of January and May, the rest of the months were pretty stable around the 6-month average of $265.59. One thing to keep in mind for the month of January is that it is an outlier because there was only 1 home sale that month, so the result is negatively exaggerated. May is somewhat in the same boat, with only 2 sales occurring during that month.

6-Month Average for ALL Homes: $265.59/sqft
6-Month Average for Homes UNDER $1,000,000: $230.72/sqft
6-Month Average for Homes OVER $1,000,000: $274.86/sqft

Average DOM by Month

The overall community wide days on market 6-month average is 149 days. So based on the first six-months of this year, you can expect a home will take almost half a year to sell.

The 6-month average for sub-$1,000,000 homes though is a little over 67 days. Big difference than the overall average. The shortest DOM for this price segment is 1-day, and the highest is 227-days.

The 6-month average for the $1M+ segment is 181 days. The shortest DOM in this segment is 0-days, but this is followed by sales that had DOM’s of 54-days, 61-days, and 68-days. So don’t get your hopes up about selling your home in less than one day. On the high side, there were two sales that were on the market for more than 500-days. Pricing your home right is the key differentiator between selling your home in 2-months of waiting a year and a half.

Another way we an look at the DOM metric, is this:

  • Homes sold in under 6-months: 16
  • Homes sold in 6-12-months: 3
  • Homes sold in over 12-months: 2
