Fulton Homes Builds Positive Community
Connections Among Neighbors

Unique amenities, favorable locations increase
interaction and trust in communities


Neighborhood Amenities


Fulton Homes, Arizona's largest family-owned and operated homebuilder, has spent decades creating communities where thousands of people have raised families and built lasting bonds with neighbors. The secret? Including unique amenities and features that promote bonding among neighbors.

"We believe that the quality of lifestyle matters in creating homes that someone will want to raise a family in," said Doug Fulton, CEO of Fulton Homes." That is why you'll find Fulton Homes communities in prime locations with access to local freeways, employment and activities. It's also a driving factor behind many of the great amenities we include insight of the community itself."

According to the 2020 American Community Life Survey, access to amenities increases neighborliness, feelings of safety, social trust and positive feelings about the community.

Fulton Homes communities feature many ways residents can connect with their neighbors, such as aquatic centers, basketball courts, playgrounds, community clubhouses and other outdoor lifestyle activities. The emphasis on green spaces and access to walkways in the communities promote active lifestyles while residents of the Barney Farms community in Queen Creek can satisfy a sense for adventure by using the ziplines or kayaking on the deep-water lake.

Respondents to the American Community Life Survey were also widely optimistic about their communities. The majority of Americans, 51 percent, believe their communities will remain the same over the next five years, and 33 percent believe their communities will get better during that time.

Another important aspect of Fulton Homes communities is their key locations in the Valley. They carefully selected each community location to put buyers minutes from local shopping, dining, entertainment and activities.

Locations are also determined by accessibility to local schools, growing employment opportunities and proximity to freeways. This lessens the average commute time many Arizona drivers face to increase time spent on family and fun. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average commute time in Arizona was 25.3 minutes in 2018.

The inclusion of amenities helps build interesting neighborhoods that families would like to call home. While strategic locations to local work, play and lifestyle locations aid in increasing home value, particularly as these areas grow.

Goodyear and Surprise are among the ten fastest growing cities in Arizona, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. They are also home to the Estrella Commons and Escalante communities, respectively.

Fulton Homes has spent the past 40 years building houses that more than 30,000 Arizona families have called home. The homebuilder has earned the reputation of creating exceptional communities that withstand the test of time in Gilbert, Goodyear, Queen Creek, San Tan Valley and Surprise.
