From its founding in the late 1800’s, Phoenix has gone from an agrarian town to a mega-city of over one million residents. Located in the Sonoran Desert, Phoenix‘s subtropical climate gives residents warm winters and searing summers. The economy of the city is well diversified and home to several Fortune 500 corporations.
While the rest of the country is feeling the pinch of the housing crisis, Phoenix is experiencing the opposite. Many commercial property owners are taking advantage of the affordable prices because they know that buying a home in Phoenix is one of the best investment deals in the country.
Affordable prices isn't the only reason why Phoenix was named one of the fastest growing metropolitan cities in the U.S.:
- Whether you are traveling by road or by air, there is usually a transportation mode that takes you where you need to go including the Metro Light Rail which takes residents through downtown Phoenix to nearby Tempe and Mesa.
- The art and culture of Phoenix is diverse. Hundreds of thousands of visitors are attracted by the Native American art and culture as well as the international cuisine from Mexico, Brazil and even Korea.
- Being surrounded by mountains makes outdoor recreation activities a must. Visitors and residents have a variety of natural parks, zoos and amusement parks to choose from.
For those who want a metropolitan feel with western charm, buying a home in Phoenix just makes sense.
