A thriving city in the middle of the desert, that is how some might describe Phoenix, Arizona. With almost year-round sunshine, living in the desert definitely has its perks, and Phoenix has many. For example, there is a multitude of recreational possibilities here, which make this an ideal destination for homebuyers desiring an active lifestyle. It is also a must-consider destination for those wanting to avoid the cold, snow, and ice of winter. Beyond winter snows, you also will not find potholes, rusting cars, skyscrapers, or daylight savings time in Phoenix, but you will see well-maintained highways, lush gardens, and professional sports.
Among its many other appealing characteristics, Phoenix has a vibrant economy, and job growth has been strong for years. Homebuyers with children will be pleased to know the many Maricopa County school districts oversee nearly 1,000 schools, so it is likely that wherever you choose to live in the city, you’ll be in proximity to schools. Also, while the Phoenix metro area is large and the city is far from walkable, commutes are generally reasonable, and there is a long list of fabulous neighborhoods and subdivisions from which prospective homebuyers can choose.
Speaking of Phoenix real estate, housing options in this remarkable city include very diverse offerings. From historic bungalows to sleek, modern condominiums, Phoenix homes for sale include a variety unseen in common cookie-cutter developments. You can easily find homes in Monterrey Revival, Tudor Revival, Tuscan, Territorial, Mission Reviva, and Colonial Revival styles. If you are fond of the Pueblo Revival style, consider the Phoenix properties for sale in the Arcadia Historic neighborhood and the Coronado Historic District. The well-established Willo community has a large selection of Ranch homes, as do the newer communities like Rancho Paloma and Dahlia Pointe in Mesa. Craftsman homes and bungalows in Phoenix are common in the “Arts District,” also known as the Roosevelt neighborhood; while contemporary homes can be found in Paradise Gardens, Marion Estates, and Marlen Grove. Phoenix condominiums like Optima Biltmore in Camelback East Village and Regency House also boast contemporary and mid-century modern styles.
Mediterranean Revival is another prominent style amidst real estate in Phoenix. While original Mediterranean homes can be found in historic communities like Mayfair or Coronado, modernized versions of the style are common in master-planned communities like Val Vista Lakes, Estrella Mountain Ranch, and Vistancia. Not be confused with Mediterranean Revival, Spanish Mission-style is also present in Phoenix with original homes located in the older parts of the city and newer versions found in Blossom Hills, Biltmore Shadows, and similar new developments. While basements are rare in Phoenix homes, more than forty-two percent of Phoenix properties have swimming pools, perfect for escaping the summer heat. If you are looking for a lower-maintenance housing option, Phoenix condominiums also come in a variety of styles. You can find ground-level condos, luxury towers, lofts, and high-rises in Phoenix, some with an industrial feel like those found at Orpheum Lofts, and others more modern like at One Lexington.
