About Arcadia

Located in the 85018 zip code, Arcadia is one of Phoenix’s premier and most desired residential and commercial neighborhoods. From expansive ranch homes to contemporary condos, you will find a variety of homes for sale in Arcadia. Arizona has a rich history of real estate development over the past 100 years. Some of the earliest land deals took place right here in the neighborhood. Arcadia Proper features a fair share of the city’s mansions and custom homes. Many were constructed on land originally used as citrus orchards. Others were built on the base of Camelback Mountain, and these homes provide spectacular views of the valley. Arcadia Lite, on the western end of the neighborhood, features ranch homes and custom homes for sale in Arcadia. The main arteries through the neighborhood are lined with luxury apartment and condos for sale as well.


While the borders of Arcadia vary depending on who you speak with, there are a few ways of dividing up the area that real estate agents follow. Arcadia Proper is the original neighborhood. This is the area east of 44th St in Phoenix and west of 64th St in Scottsdale, north of the canal (yes, part of the neighborhood is in Scottsdale). In the recent decades, people started buying up homes west of 44th St and referred to it as Arcadia Lite. It is the area between 32nd St and 44th St (west to east) and between Indian School Rd and Camelback Rd (south to north). Then we have Lower Arcadia, which is the area south of Arcadia Proper between 44th St and 56th St (west to east) and between Thomas Rd and Indian School Rd (south to north).

There are two other opinions. Some will argue that it is the area within the Arcadia High School district and others will argue that if you live in the 85018 zip code, then you live in Arcadia. Outside the areas mentioned above, you are actually in Old Town Scottsdale or the Camelback East neighborhood of Phoenix. For the purposes of this page, we include all homes in the 85018 zip code as well as the Scottsdale portion of Arcadia Proper. See our breakout pages for Arcadia Proper, Arcadia Lite, and Lower Arcadia for homes specifically located in these neighborhoods.

The Arcadia neighborhood originated as an area ripe with citrus farms at the beginning of the 20th century. The opening of the Arizona Canal brought water to the area and many of the citrus farms were replaced with sprawling homes for the rich & famous. History buffs will enjoy Arizona Falls, a restored hydroelectric plant along the canal’s jogging and biking trail. Today, Arcadia retains its charm and valuable real estate. Homes for sale in Arcadia and the surrounding 85018 zip code are highly desired and home values continue to rise well above the average home values in Phoenix.
