The eyes of the nation have definitely turned toward Phoenix, recently claiming the status of the fifth largest city in the nation. Throughout the incredible growth cycle that spanned the 1990s, the city managed to maintain an enviable position on the cost of living index—particularly in the area of housing. Phoenix began construction on a massive highway system in 1985 that represents the largest locally funded endeavor in the nation. Strategic freeway connections have greatly reduced travel times within the city itself and to surrounding communities. The metro bus system and ride-share programs offer mass transportation alternatives, while Sky Harbor International Airport continually expands to accommodate the Valley’s exponential growth.

State-of-the-art medical facilities, research institutions, specialized health centers, and hundreds of highly skilled professionals serve the Phoenix community. Phoenix is home to more than 20 hospitals, medical centers, and specialized centers that include the highly respected Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

From sports to the fine arts, newcomers of all ages and interests will discover many rich treasures in Phoenix. Phoenix is also one of the few cities in the nation to attract a major league team in every sport. Crowds from across the Valley flock to spectacular new stadiums and state-of-the-art arenas to watch Phoenix Coyotes hockey, Arizona Diamondbacks baseball, and football with the NFL Cardinals, and the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team.

Neighborhoods throughout Phoenix offer a diversity of homes in varying architectural styles, settings, sizes, and real estate price ranges. Historic neighborhoods in the heart of the city are climbing rapidly in value as charming bungalows and high-rise lofts or apartments are being built or renovated for convenient downtown living. The vintage homes nestled in the Encanto Park region showcase elegant architecture against the backdrop of ancient trees, lush gardens, and meticulous landscaping. The ever-popular Arcadia neighborhood spans both Phoenix and Scottsdale, offering another selection of beautiful homes nestled in deep lots with mature greenery. Few locations in the Valley can rival the prestigious Biltmore area for sheer elegance and a centralized location.

With its exceptionally high quality of life, vibrant economy, virtually limitless recreational opportunities, affordable housing, and relaxing southwestern lifestyle—Phoenix is an ideal place to call home.
