NexMetro Communities expands Valley footprint

Phoenix-based NexMetro Communities is introducing two new neighborhoods in the East Valley to meet the growing demand for the company’s innovative luxury leased home lifestyle. The company is the pioneer of hybrid communities that offer lifestyle-consious consumers a new home experience without the burdens of home ownership.

“These consumers could buy, but instead choose a higher-quality leased-living experience,” said Josh Hartmann, CEO of NexMetro. Under its Avilla Homes communities moniker, the company has more than 1,300 new homes completed, under construction or in contract in 2017 alone. “Avilla is addressing the demands of the lifestyle renter who is one of the most underserved segments of the housing market.”

Avilla Victoria I, located in Queen Creek within the Victoria Master Planned Community at Ocotillo Road and Victoria Lane, will open on June 9 with 119 homes. In July, Avilla Town Square, an 18.55-acre community located in the heart of Gilbert, just south of the Heritage District at the corner of Gilbert Road and Warner Road, will officially open for lease.

The two new Avilla neighborhoods will expand the company’s footprint in the East Valley, while providing sought-after, best-of-both-worlds options to consumers who are “renters by choice,” Hartmann said. Avilla homes and communities feature: 10-foot ceilings; private backyards; high-end finishes; energy-efficient appliances; gated entries; resort-style pool; trash valet; 24-hour maintenance and more.

“In the highly competitive rental market, Avilla Homes has established itself as the gold standard for delivering a true luxury new home experience,” said Hartmann. “The demand for living in a high-quality home located in a gated enclave that puts privacy, quality and convenience at the forefront, without long-term commitments, financial burdens and maintenance hassles continues to grow and has set us on a course to develop 13 additional properties by 2020.”

Avilla Victoria I is located in one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. and is the first of a two-phased community that will ultimately consist of 225 homes in the heart of Queen Creek. As part of the Victoria Master Planned Community, the new homes will have easy access to a wide range of retail and lifestyle amenities, such as the Queen Creek Marketplace, which is anchored by Target, and Harkins 14 Theaters.

Avilla Town Square will also be built in two phases, beginning in July. The first phase will consist of 150 homes. Each phase will feature its own formal entry, swimming pool and outdoor amenities. Centrally located just south of Gilbert’s prominent Heritage District, Avilla Town Square residents will be in the middle of one of the most desirable live-work-play regions of the East Valley, which is home to booming restaurant, retail and service zones in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

Avilla Homes are known for their upscale features, and both Avilla Victoria I and Avilla Town Square will rise to the occasion. Both communities will feature smart design, advanced technology, energy efficiency and distinctive architecture as driving forces.  With one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, the homes are modern and stylish, with open and spacious floor plans, private entrances, outdoor patios and backyards.All of the floor plans boast 10’ ceilings, allowing an abundance of natural light, and feature high-end finishes including granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, full-size washer and dryers and even a charging station for electric vehicles. Additionally, Avilla Homes are pet friendly and offer reserved covered parking and optional garages, plus the perks of neighborhood living, complete with a resort-style pool and beautifully landscaped recreation areas, all maintained by a professional management company, without mortgage payments or HOA fees.

Priced competitively with surrounding A-class apartments, the rental rates for these luxury leased-homes will be released soon to the public. Floor plans and additional details are available by visiting Avilla Homes at or contacting a leasing agent at (480) 272-6960.
