Rincon Heights is an in-city neighborhood that surrounds The University of Arizona on the east, west, and north sides of campus. Because of its popularity as an off-campus dwelling, it has a few limited parcels left unbuilt with typically higher prices. Nonetheless, its closeness to campus makes it highly sought after and appealing.
The typical buyer profile for these neighborhoods includes:
- Graduate students
- Parents with children attending the U of A
- Small builders specializing in rental homes
Property sizes in this district typically range from 5,000 to 12,000 sq. ft., with R-1 or R-2 zoning. Because of the recent zoning updates, it has introduced the option to construct a second, smaller residential unit on these lots, known as ADU (Auxiliary Dwelling Units), although certain restrictions do apply. This newfound flexibility has enhanced buyer interest.
