It is an exciting time to live, work or retire in Kingman Arizona. The town is doing great in terms of providing affordable housing, growing at a sustainable rate and looking towards the future with great ideas and a plan. Our company has been fortunate to call Kingman home since the beginning and we have a great reputation of providing land, commercial and residential real estate to our clients. Currently our team is working hard to keep up with housing demand. There is a definite shortage of residential homes and rental properties available. We are working with local builders to find land, develop lots, build homes and sell them to our clients. Ray Smith of K-Squared Development is our premier builder and we have a variety of models and areas to chose from.
Why is Kingman growing so fast? Most of our clients are relocating here from California for the simple fact that this is a great place to retire and not be so expensive. Property, state and gas taxes are very reasonable in Arizona and Kingman has very cheap property tax rates compared to nearly any other comparable city. The climate is great, we rarely get snow and we have plenty of sunshine. Another great factor here is we don’t get natural disasters such as fires, flooding, tornados, hurricanes or earthquakes.
Our town has made a lot of progress over the last decade. The historical downtown area is now a great place to visit and vacation. Ten years ago most of downtown was boarded up and vacant. Now we have art galleries, Rickety Cricket Brewing, a variety of hair studios, antique shops, and the historical theater is opening back up soon.
Our company has sold tens of thousands of acres north of Kingman and East of town that is being utilized for nut trees such as almonds and pistachios.
We are also working very hard to get another interchange in Kingman. The state of Arizona recently allocated 20 million towards this interchange for fiscal year 2020. We have worked with property owners in this area for years to get this interchange in. Why is it so important? We simply don’t have commercial or industrial land available.
And this will tie into the Kingman Airport. Which currently is nine miles northeast of Kingman. The airport and the industrial area around it is the economic engine for the community. The Kingman Industrial Park here has rail access to many of the businesses that operate here.
Kingman is located on the southern transcon route of the BNSF railway. This is the main transcontinental route between LA and Chicago and carries 100 to 150 trains per day. Kingman does have passenger rail service at its downtown train station served by Amtrak.
