For those of you relocating to another part of the country, you should consider buying a home in Arizona. This article will provide you with the basics of Arizona and the FSBO real estate market.
The largest and fastest growing city in Arizona is the city of Phoenix. Phoenix is the capital of Arizona, the economic hub of the state and the sixth largest city in the United States. Phoenix has seen so much growth that it has taken over the towns of Tempe and Scottsdale that are located nearby. There is often a criticism of Phoenix that it has no real culture or history since it has a very new atmosphere about it.
Phoenix is also home to many different sports teams for those of you who enjoy sporting events. There are professional teams in football, baseball, and basketball. The Phoenix Coyotes, a pro ice hockey organization, also calls Phoenix home. It is hard to believe that a NHL team can exist in a desert, but it can!
If you want to get out of the cold, Phoenix is the state for you. In the summer months, the temperatures hover north of 100 degrees and the air is typically very dry and not humid at all. In the winter months, the nights can be on the colder side, but during the day, the temps will still be in the mid 70s.
Flagstaff is another great city, but it is different than Phoenix with a Wild West, historic atmosphere. Flagstaff in located on famous Route 66 and is considered a college town because the Arizona State University is located here. Arizona State University or ASU, as it is called by locals, dominates Flagstaff with its student body of over 30,000.
If you are thinking of purchasing a home in Arizona, you should know that the prices are better there than just about anywhere else. A typical house in Phoenix will cost around $300,000 on average. But, over the last year, Arizona housing prices have gone up more than 25% because it has become a popular place to relocate to.
People either really like Arizona or hate it based on how they view the heat. If you are interested in staying warm all year round, you would be wise to purchase a house in Arizona.
