Arizona’s been one of the hottest real estate markets in the U.S. for a while now, and it looks like that hot streak is set to continue for quite a while. Inventory is extremely low, listing prices are far above home values, and the state’s population is one of the fastest-growing in the country.

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.
