Queen Creek vs San Tan Valley? What is the difference?

 At the beginning of the  Arizon’s real estate boom in the early 2000’s, San Tan Valley did not exist. All of the homes that were in that unincorporated area of Pinal County shared a Queen Creek zip code and had their mail delivered by the Queen Creek Post Office. There was only one zip code at the time, 85242 which encompassed the entire area. So, many of the families that lived in that part of Pinal County, believed they lived in Queen Creek because all of their bills, and everything that was addressed to them, showed them as having a Queen Creek address. This is where the confusion and inaccuracies began.

As the boom was escalating in the early 2000’s, real estate values were increasing at a crazy pace. Families were forced to drive further outside of Phoenix until they could qualify for their loan amount, so they drove to the Queen Creek area in record numbers. Out in Queen Creek, away from the larger cities, they could accomplish the dream of home ownership because the home prices were substantially less. The identical home, built by the same builder, would be $50,000 less in this area than in Chandler or even Gilbert. With this population explosion came a zip code change, and they created 2 new zip codes…85243 and 85240. So, now there were 3 “Queen Creek” zip codes including 85242.

No one understands exactly what happened next , but only a year later, the US Post Office changed the zip codes again. This time to 85142, 85143 and 85140. Talk about confusing! Generally, 85142 is considered the Town of Queen Creek. But, 85142 was also assigned to the Morning Sun Farms and San Tan Heights neighborhoods located in San Tan Valley. So, residents are still super confused over where they live. And, believe it or not, Realtors from outside the Queen Creek and San Tan Valley area are confused too. I cannot tell you how many times I have had a debate with a Realtor® that has a listing in San Tan Valley, but advertises it as being in Queen Creek, based on the zip code alone, even though we know that is inaccurate.

The AZ MLS search, on our website, lists Morning Sun Farms and San Tan Heights as being neighborhoods in Queen Creek, because that is how most people mistakenly think of those two neighborhoods. However, in reality, both of those communities are in San Tan Valley, outside of Queen Creek. Thus, the confusion continues among residents and Realtors® alike. I am not exactly sure what to do about this issue as other agents have over half their listings marked incorrectly. So, unfortunately my website is inaccurate, on purpose, in order to capture all of the misunderstood property locations for the areas of Queen Creek and San Tan Valley.
