Presidio in the Pines is currently one of Flagstaff, AZ’s hottest neighborhoods. Originally conceived during the boom of the mid-2000’s, the Presidio development went bankrupt prior to any homes being built. Once the real estate market in Flagstaff, AZ started to recover from the great recession, builders and private investors started to buy up the lots in the Presidio area. In 2011-2012, the activity began and new-build homes started to sell like crazy. The main reasons this area has proven to be so attractive to Flagstaff homebuyers is:
Location. Just West of Downtown Flagstaff off of Route 66, the homes in Presidio in the Pines are only minutes from the Downtown Flagstaff area. The Presidio neighborhood also offers easy freeway access.

Amenities. With large park areas, children’s playground, and trails, there is plenty of outdoor common area space for enjoyment.
