Camelot Village Community

Perfect for families who want the best of suburban and city life, Camelot Village offers a charming collection of unique homes in a caring community. Camelot Village is located less than 15 minutes away from a wide selection of culture, entertainment, and all that comes with the Arizona State University campus. Homes in the 300-residence development range from $300,000 to $500,000.

The Area

Located in the more suburban portion of Tempe, Camelot Village contains its own park and is within walking distance of public pools, a skate park, grocery and drugs stores, golf courses, and other everyday amenities. Camelot Village is especially unique in that it does not offer a traditional Home Owners Association, but rather a voluntary neighborhood association, which plans events, discusses issues, and provides personal emotional support for residents. Donations are just that: donations, not mandatory dues; Camelot Village recognizes the irony in forcing people to make the community a better place.

Camelot Village residents can easily take advantage of Tempe’s many shopping, dining, and entertainment opportunities by taking the lite rail uptown for a charity walk, musical at ASU Gammage, or Sun Devil football game. Phoenix Sky Harbor, Arizona’s international airport, is less than 20 minutes away, placing the rest of the world easily within reach. With the extensive options Tempe has to offer for entertainment, Camelot Village is perfect for those who want to find a balance between fast and slower paced lifestyles.

The Schools

Camelot Village is within the Kyrene School District for elementary and middle school students, and the Tempe Union High School District. Children will therefore attend Kyrene Del Norte Elementary, Kyrene Middle, and Corona Del Sol High School. Corona Del Sol is one of the top public schools in Tempe with a graduation rate of 98% and a 95% college attendance rate. Graduates are often rewarded numerous accolades and scholarships for academics, sports, and other activities. In addition to their AP and honors classes, Corona del Sol offers numerous sports and other extracurricular activities.

There are also four private preschools and two Christian schools in the immediate area of Camelot Village. Tempe has 70 other private education opportunities if parents are willing to travel over 10 minutes to take their children to school.

For higher education, Arizona State University is located less than 20 minutes away from Camelot Village. Whether looking to continue your education later in life or to send your child to college, ASU offers a wide range of disciplines and a quality experience for a competitive price. The university also contributes extensively to the development of younger children in Tempe by providing teaching aides to classrooms across the city and opening many events to the public.

The Economy

Tempe is a bustling epicenter for commercial business in the Valley of the Sun, serving as the headquarters for US Airways, Insight Enterprises, LifeLock, First Solar Project, and many others,. ASU and the University of Phoenix stadium also draw money into the city at incomparable rates. ASU, Maricopa Community College District, and the Salt River Project are the city’s top employers. According to the 2006 census, the median income for a Tempe family is $55,237

The average price of a home in Tempe is approximately $311,000, meaning that Camelot Village offers both par-for-the-course and higher quality housing options. Tempe’s housing market is becoming stronger, with an increase in housing prices by $40,000 since last year to a median of $177,150. The least expensive areas are closest to the university, most likely because of the greater amount of traffic, crime, and noise—making Camelot Village’s 15 minute commute from the university a safe distance for individuals who would rather live without.

Tempe’s price-per-square-foot increased by 34% this year to $129. Tempe’s foreclosures are a mere fraction with only 36% of re-sales accounting for them, while the rest of Arizona’s were 62% in 2010. The remainder of the state has consistently improved since then, but these statistics speak volumes for Tempe’s impenetrable market.

Is Camelot Village for You?

Yes, if you want access to the best that the Valley has to offer, but not 24/7 urban living. With high quality, charming suburban homes, Camelot Village provides a unique community experience for families in a diverse range of prices.
