    Top Reasons You Should Consider Moving to Arizona

    • The Weather: While there are a wide variety of factors that bring people to Arizona, one of the most commonly cited is the sunshine. Phoenix averages 299 days a year of sunlight. The average high temperature is 84℉ and the average low temperature is 63℉. Every year, the warm weather ushers in a new wave of winter weary transplants looking to ditch their snow boots.

     

    • The Outdoor Lifestyle: Unsurprisingly, the warm weather creates the perfect environment for outdoor enthusiasts. Arizona offers a wide variety of outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, biking, boating, climbing and even winter sports if you are willing to travel a few hours North. You may want to keep your outdoor time in the summer limited to water sports, especially if you are new to the heat and still acclimating. 

     

    • Growth: Maricopa County, where Phoenix is located, is one of the fastest growing counties in the United States for population growth. An increase in job opportunities in tech, healthcare, finance, etc., has brought a young educated workforce to the area in recent years.

     

    • Affordability: As affordability decreases in major cities around the United States, Phoenix maintains its affordability and economical cost of living. While prices are rising, entry level homes in the $200,000 range are still available. Home buyer beware: this is a very competitive price range and you will need a skilled realtor to help you succeed in finding a home.

     

    • Space: Montana might be the Big Sky State, but Arizona has a lot of big sky of its own. You do not have to venture too far from downtown Phoenix to see wide open spaces. If you are looking for a yard with a little extra space, it won’t be too hard to find here. A lot homes in the city even have RV gates and places to park your outdoor equipment. 

     

    • Easy Travel Access: The centrally located, Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is one of the busiest airports in North America. If you are flying into a major city, there is a pretty good chance that you will be able to find a direct flight. The self-proclaimed “friendliest airport” lives up to the moniker with helpful employees and easy to navigate terminals. 

     

    • Retirement: Phoenix has been a long time haven for retirees looking to escape the cold and enjoy soaking up the sun. With hundreds of thousands of retirees, AZ is home to some of the best retirement communities the country has to offer. There is a huge variety in the types of communities and the amenities they offer. Whether you are looking for peace and quiet or an active adult community, you are sure to find it in Arizona. 

     

    • Entertainment: Phoenix is never lacking in entertainment. If you are seeking large festivals or just small neighborhood community bbq’s, we have it all. Music, food truck and cultural festivals are year round here. A few of our favorites are the Arizona Taco Festival, Ostrich Festival, Renaissance Fair and the Phoenix Film Fest. In addition to all the Festivals on your schedule, plan time to go to local sporting events. Arizona is home to NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB, NHL teams and much more. 

     

    • Culture: Arizona also boasts a rich Native American culture. Spend time in the local museums learning about the important heritage of the Southwest. You can visit the Heard Museum, Pueblo Grande Museum, and many archaeological sites. If you are looking for something more immersive, The Native American Recognition Days celebrates the history and traditions of Native American culture through artwork, songs, and dance.
