Why 85262 Is the New 85253

What's the wealthiest zip code in the Valley of the Sun? For years, it was 85253, which roughly defines the boundaries of the town of Paradise Valley. That designation has been usurped by the new wealthiest zip code, 85262. According to a recent Phoenix Business Journal article, the North Scottsdale golf community of Desert Mountain has the wealthiest households. 

What’s Drawing People to Desert Mountain?

Desert Mountain is a 8,300 acre guard-gated community with seven top-rated golf courses and clubhouses. It also has world-class tennis courts, as well as pickleball, hiking trails, and 10 distinctive restaurants. It appeals to people who want to get away from it all and enjoy all that the community has to offer. In addition, its elevation means it is usually 10 degrees cooler than the Valley.

Paradise Valley also has these attractions, as well as those in nearby Scottsdale and Phoenix. It appeals to people who either want or need to be close to an urban environment and its offices and shopping.
