ON THE RISE: Buckeye sees population growth

The boom continues in Buckeye, as the West Valley city sees a growth in population. New homes are going up, and businesses are moving in.

Recently, Nikola Motor Company announced it is moving to Buckeye to build a big plant, where electric semi-trucks will be manufactured. In fact, last year, Buckeye made the top-15 list in the nation's fastest growing cities, based on the annual percentage of population growth. It's the only Arizona city to make this list

"You have opportunity for pretty much anybody, to any walk of life," said associate broker Tim Kilmek. "Business coming in, growth of homes in multiple different areas and communities."

Kilmek says the area is fit for anyone.

"We're starting to see the higher end homes go up," said Kilmek. "Verado homes, from $200,000 to $2 million."

With the help of new businesses like the Nikola Motor Company, who plans to hire 2,000 workers, and bring in an estimated billion dollars in capital investment to the region by 2024, there's a lot to be excited about. 

"I think it will create more opportunity for other businesses to follow that path," said Kilmek.

In addition, there is $80 million worth of Tonopah land a firm who works for Bill Gates bought. The land is rumored to eventually be turned into a smart city.
