I may talk about my undying love for Phoenix, Peoria, and other metro area Arizona cities, but I’ve never explained where it comes from. I firmly believe that families looking for land, education, and safe places to raise their family should buy a home in Phoenix. It’s a haven for all things art, sports, music, education, and nature. If you’re looking to buy a home in Phoenix, here are some important things to think about in terms of neighborhoods and locations around the Valley.
Seven Reasons Why You Should Buy a Home in Phoenix
- Never Ending entertainment in Phoenix.
It’s kind of impossible to be bored in Phoenix! The state capital is filled with creative and performance venues like the Phoenix Art Museum, the Orpheum Theater, and downtown Phoenix’s Symphony Hall. Year round shows, concerts, and galleries to always keep the creative mind challenged.
2. Sports, sports, sports.
Did I say it enough? Hosting the SuperBowl is only the peak of the athletic powerhouses all across the Valley. From the professional teams like the Suns, Diamondbacks, and Coyotes to the dominating sports high schools like Chaparral (Scottsdale), Hamilton (Chandler), and Centennial (Peoria), athletes are all over Phoenix. When you buy a home in Phoenix, you’re allowing your family to experience big professional games while also giving your kids an opportunity to play on some of the best teams around.
- Projected housing market.
In case you haven’t heard, the Phoenix housing market has been on the rise and is one of the top growing US housing markets in 2015! It’s a buyer’s market now because of the huge supply of homes for sale and the increasing value of the properties.

- Phoenix’s low property taxes.
According to TurboTax’s report based on the U.S. Census Bureau, Mesa and Phoenix homeowners pay some of the lowest property taxes in the country! Mesa is number 2 on the list (with an average of 0.5% of the median home price), while Phoenix is number 4 (with an average of 0.7% of the median home price).
- Land diversity.
- Some of the best weather in the country.
Granted, we are all melting in the heat right now. But if us Phoenicians are honest with ourselves, most of the year has incredible weather! We don’t own chains for our tires, umbrellas, puffy coats, or snow plows. It gets just cold and rainy enough to keep everyone happy for over half of the year! Plus, the dry heat in the summer is perfect for a constant stream of pool parties and air conditioned game nights.
- No traffic. I repeat, NO TRAFFIC.
Okay, so every big city has a bit of rush hour traffic. Phoenix has the lowest traffic amount in the country! Our large freeways and wide streets make it easy to navigate through the perfect grid that is Phoenix. Say goodbye to the mega-commute.
