Location, Location, Location
The three things that matter most in real estate? Location, location, location. We have all heard that before, right? I couldn’t agree with that sentiment more. The neighborhood called Lakes in south Tempe has location going for it, it is in the center of everything!
See the blue in the middle of that map? That is the Lakes neighborhood. See that the US 60 is just north of the neighborhood, and Tempe’s huge awesome Kiwanis Park is just to the west of the neighborhood. So this neighborhood offers easy access to everything you could possible want to get to, plus has one of the best city parks in the state right close by. Kiwanis park offers an indoor WAVE pool, tennis courts, tons of sport activities and tons of classes for all members of the family. Find out more about Kiwanis Park HERE!
Community Centers lead to a sense of COMMUNITY
I talk a lot about what neighborhoods have to offer…because I think some neighborhoods make meeting your neighbors and feeling a part of things easier than other neighborhoods. I am a big fan of community centers within a neighborhood, simply because they lead to a sense of community. This is important for all of us. We need to feel connected to the people we live around to stop the overwhelming loneliness that so much of our nation is experiencing. Community centers have stuff to offer for every member of the family, young to old. It is also a great option to joining a gym, or having a backyard pool. The Lakes community allows it’s residents to use all aspects of the community center just for their HOA dues. Sometimes there are extra fees to use facilities, but I think it is best when there are not…like the way it is here at the Lakes.
We can’t skip one of the very best things about the Lakes neighborhood, and that is of course the LAKES! The homes that are on the lake can have their own dock, and they can have their own boats. No gas vehicles are allowed on these lakes, but your own personal pontoon boat is certainly acceptable. The lake is stocked with all kinds of fish that are easy and fun to catch. Unfortunately because the water is reclaimed water the fish shouldn’t be eaten, and everything is catch and release. It is a lot of fun to live on a lake, take your own boat out, and fish whenever you want!
