Yavapai County is nicknamed the Treasure Vault of the Southwest and is home to approximately 185,000 residents in 8125 square miles. Elevations range from 1900 to 8000 feet in such diverse land types as arid desert, picturesque mountains, meadow grasslands, and scenic valleys. The U.S. Forest Service owns 38 percent of the land in Yavapai County, while the state of Arizona owns an additional 24.6 percent. Twenty-five percent is individually or corporate owned and 11.6 percent is the property of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. The Yavapai Indian Reservation and public lands each occupy less than 0.5 percent of the county.

Yavapai County has a variety of real estate listings from which to choose, whether you are looking for townhouses, condos, luxury homes, or investment properties.

Several incorporated cities are within the county boundaries: Campe Verde, Chino Valley, Clarkdale, Cottonwood, Jerome, Prescott, and Sedona. Ruins from ghost and mining towns are scattered throughout the county in canyons and nestled in the mountains.

Red Rock Country in the Coconino National Forest features a kaleidoscopic display of color in the mesas, buttes, and pinnacles in the canyons encompassing Sedona. The Prescott National Forest is in the center of Yavapai County and includes the Bradshaw Mountains, the Chino Valley, the Black Hills, and the Verde Valley.

Twenty-seven school districts fulfill the educational needs of the county youngsters. The focus is on highest student achievement with a diverse curriculum. Higher academic opportunities are found at Prescott College, a private, liberal arts college, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, which offers aerospace and aviation education.
