Chandler has a quiet, laid-back, family feel. A majority of people own their own homes, but there are also an abundance of relatively affordable apartment complexes as well. One of the cooler things we like about Chandler are the neighborhoods like Ocotillo that have an ordinance that all developed property must have 60% dedicated to greenery(grass, trees, shrubs, etc.). While we want this greenery to be sensitive to water issues it is good to know these neighborhoods are less desert-vibe and more comfortable-neighborhood in look and feel.


Young Professionals/Retirees

Chandler has historically been built much more for families than young professionals. That is definitely changing and you can see it with the growth in bars, restaurants and a boom in loft-style apartments and condos all within walking distance of the downtown scene. While downtowns are often the choice of young singles we also see plenty of retirees embracing the idea of living a short walk from a night out and the city's primary amenities.

If you’re starting a family soon, you’ll love Chandler’s family-friendly nature and the amenities it has that surpass the expectations of a typical suburb. These neighborhoods will give you a chance to find a great house, without sacrificing the feel of a city. Ocotillo in particular draws our eye for its regulations for greenery that make young families really feel like they’re living in a developed neighborhood. As the little ones grow up they’re going to want that greenery for play and shade.
