Back in 1921, the Jolly family built a 160-acre ranch on what is now the corner of Scottsdale Road and Indian Bend and this would become the foundation of McCormick Ranch. Roughly 20 years later, Fowler and Anne McCormick purchased the ranch and began buying other parcels of land to add on to the property.

When Anne died in 1969, roughly 4,200 acres was sold and became incorporated in 1972. Since then large developments have been completed and McCormick Ranch now spans nearly five square miles and is home to nearly 14,000 residents. With over 50 separate subdivisions, McCormick Ranch is large in size but feels quaint at the street level.

With the median house value sitting at $500,000, McCormick Ranch attracts young professionals and families alike looking for that perfect community. With a variety of housing choices to choose from, you can guarantee that you will find the perfect home.
