ABOUT THE AREA
Mohave County is America's fifth largest county geographically, and Arizona's fastest growing. Mohave County is a very large and diverse area, with over 1,000 miles of recreational shoreline along the Colorado River and its lakes. Elevations range from 500 feet at Lake Havasu City to over 8,000 feet at the tops of the pine covered Hualapai mountains. Keep in mind that less than 10% of Mohave County is available for private ownership, since most of the lands are held by the state and federal governments and the indian reservations. With its ideal year round climate and close proximity to the Los Angeles Basin, Las Vegas and Phoenix, Mohave County is assured steady growth and continued prosperity. A prime location and limited availability means that there is no better time to buy land than right now!
