This response is because of the response you received from dwallphx.
I would like to respond to the above message. I have been a property owner in Los Lagos for 16 years. It is a beautiful community in Ft. Mohave, Arizona. We have golf courses on 3 sides of our community and we are within 15 minutes of the Colorade River and the gambling community. Our custom built homes built around the lakes. The houses are not "stacked" on top of each other. They are on nice size lots and because the main draw is the water, that is the focal point of our backyards. Several of the houses have pools so obviously there is plenty of room in the back. You don't walk out the door and fall in the water!
Our city is adjacent to Bullhead City. Years ago Bullhead City was a fishing town with not much more than a couple of fast food restaurants. It's claim to fame was that it was across the river from Laughlin. In the past 15 years there has been a tremendous change in the area. The Bullhead Parkway was put in and several developments were established.
One is called Laughlin Ranch which has some very large and expensive homes and a beautiful golf course. Retail has come into the city and we have a beautiful Target, Kohl's, Ross, Marshall's, Bed Bath and Beyond, Staples, Pet's Mart, Lowes, Sam's Club, Super Walmart, Home Depot, J.C. Penneys, Stage and other retail stores. More nice restaurants are beineg built all the time. Like in any other city we do have some "undesirables", but I doubt you can find anywhere nowadays where that is not the case. As neighborhoods become more upscale, the people moving in are more "desirable" Although Bullhead has been around since I was a child, it has really began to grow in the past five years. Every place has to start somewhere and this river community has just begun to come into its own.
In closing, if you want a cookie cutter house in an area that has been "arranged" for you, this is not the place to be. If you want to build your dream home, in a desirable neighborhood, with plenty to do to keep you active, Los Lagos might be your place.
