It’s seemingly fast and furious. For months residents of Festival wondered what the next phase of development might look like. That picture is now developing.


A few weeks ago Pulte moved its sales force from its original location just off Desert Vista Boulevard to an area in the newly developing area south of Sun Valley Parkway and closer to the White Tank Mountains. Just over 100 new lots were open. Of those almost half are already sold. But for current residents not wishing to make a move there’s some exciting news.


Festival’s second recreation center is now under construction. We have some artist renderings of some of its features. There will be an indoor walking track elevated to a second floor. We have a gorgeous pool at the current Sage Rec Center and there will be another outdoor pool. We are also gaining another work-out facility, more meeting rooms and a performance ball room. The Saguaro Recreation Center is scheduled to open in early to mid 2020. This is not the end.


Work crews have already begun work converting the now retired sales center into meeting rooms which is an expansion of the Sage Center complex. Also yet to come is a third recreation center.


As Festival continues to grow we will see the addition of thousands of homes. We currently have approximately 2800 homes in our community. Plans call for another 4,400 bringing us to a total of 7,200 homes. 


While all that new construction is moving forward there are also residents choosing change. Some are wanting newer homes while others are making a move to leave (most of the departing residents do so for family reasons). We always have very nice homes for sale. That’s where I come in.


There are many realtors from which to choose but I am Festival’s resident real estate agent. I live here, I work here and only here. If having a local agent is of value to you then we need to talk. If for whatever reason you decide to sell your Festival home let me bring a team of experts to help you accomplish your goals. If you are not yet a resident I want to be the realtor I didn’t have when we chose to move here. I know the community, the home models, the neighborhoods, the walking trails, the rec centers and above all, I know how happy most of our residents are to claim this community home.
