5 Reasons to Purchase a One Story Home in Maricopa, AZ
There are many reasons to purchase a single level home for sale in Maricopa, Arizona. I’ve had both and I’ll write down some of the advantages of owning a ranch home. A list of these homes are linked at the bottom for you to browse right from the Arizona MLS. If you’re ready to make that move I’m here for you! I can take you through the buying process from start to finish. Nothing would make me happier. I can also recommend a few mortgage lenders if you need to secure financing.
Safety for Seniors and Children: One story homes cancel out a lot of potential danger for elderly or young children. You don’t need to walk up and down stairs which can increase the chances of a slip and fall. Plus, in homes with stairs there is sometimes a place a child can fall the full two stories if they climb over a railing or balcony wall. One more reason is that single story homes are easier to escape if there was a fire.
Heating and Cooling Bills: Single story homes are usually easier on the wallet when it comes to heating and air conditioning bills. Some of the two story homes in Maricopa have two air conditioning units (one for upstairs and one for down). The uneven distribution of cold air can increase your utility costs since it’s harder to heat a second story (especially in Arizona).

Cleaning is Easier: A single story home is much easier to clean. You won’t find yourself lugging a vacuum up and down the stairs, or a heavy carpet cleaner. If you don’t have an upstairs washer and dryer you’ll need to carry load after load of laundry up and down the steps. And when you make your move you won’t have to carry mattresses, dressers, and other furniture up there.
Open Floor Plans: Maricopa has many different styles of floor plans in their single story homes for sale. They are usually very open and spacious so you don’t feel cramped. There are also single stories over 2000 feet and they are nice! There are big great rooms, easy access to the kitchen and bedrooms are usually tucked away out of sight.
Easy to Sell: When and if you decide to sell, the ranch houses in Maricopa are hot commodities. Lots of seniors and those looking for vacation homes prefer the one stories.
