It has another eight of its Avilla rental home developments planned or under construction in metro Phoenix..."

John Boyd, principal of The Boyd Co. Inc. location consultants, said it’s increasingly looking like the company’s announcement will come after the midterm elections if the news doesn’t break elsewhere before it’s officially announced..."
