Incorporated in 1881, Phoenix is young by historical standards but now ranks as one of the steadiest growing cities in the nation.
Phoenix is still one of the most attractive areas in the country. It’s considered by many to be the best place to live in the entire nation along with surrounding cities, of Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, Fountain Hills, and Peoria. Phoenix Metropolitan area real estate has undergone a swing adjustment in lock-step with the real-estate crisis, but unlike many other cities it has seen a constant increase in home values since then and is still steadily growing –August 2015 report.
Summer, 2015, Phoenix is still a national leader in population growth and job growth, mortgages are still historically low with a median price for a home being 204k (information from the Realty Studies at Arizona State University Polytechnic campus). Phoenix-Scottsdale and Surrounding cities have a business friendly climate that promotes new business and uninterrupted growth.
