Whispering Ranch, Arizona is located approximately 20 miles northwest of Surprise, AZ. It is beautiful high Sonoran desert terrain. Rugged and accessible only via a high-profile four-wheel drive vehicle in some places, it is home to some of the least expensive land parcels near Phoenix. Many people feel it is only a matter of time until it is developed.
Sales and prices in Whispering ranch were flat until 2005, when along with the Phoenix residential real estate market, sales and prices exploded in Whispering Ranch. While sales have cooled markedly since mid 2006, prices have not taken a corresponding drop.
There are currently 147 land parcels listed in Whispering Ranch. The vast majority are 4.1 – 5.0 acres, with the majority being zoned R-190 (one residence per four acres).

Personally I think it would be a shame if this area were paved over with tract homes. With the R190 zoning and the cost of routing infrastructure, I don't think it will get to that point. But given its proximity to Phoenix, it is probably only a matter of time before some development takes place. And when it does, watch what happens to the land values…
