Arizona is a major destination for retirees — and anyone who loves spending time in the great outdoors.

From Flagstaff’s pine forests to Sedona’s red mesas, Arizona offers a wide variety of dramatic landscapes. The Grand Canyon State boasts an impressive 34 state parks and 3 National Parks: Saguaro, Petrified Forest, and Grand Canyon.

Though some parts of the state have snowy winters, Arizona’s relatively moderate climate provides opportunities for outdoor activities year-round.

Frequently asked questions about Arizona real estate

Is it a buyer's or seller's market in Arizona?

It is a seller’s market in Arizona right now and homes are being priced higher in this high-demand market. However, the state of the market is different in each city and town, so consulting with a local real estate agent is a must when trying to figure out your local market trends.

Is Arizona a good state to invest in real estate?

Yes, investing in Arizona is a good idea, especially in areas like Phoenix and Tucson, where the demand for housing is always high. However, to ensure that your real estate purchase is worth the money, first learn which neighborhoods to buy from and how to manage an investment property. Read through our guide on investing in real estate to find out more.

Is it a good time to buy a house in Arizona?

Now might not be the best time to buy a home in Arizona, as listing prices are much higher than average. However, mortgage rates here are lower than in other states, meaning that you could save money in the long run with a locked-in low rate. To understand all your options, you should work with one of the top real estate agents in the state.
