Phoenix Weather

By
Real Estate Agent with Team Cuellar of Tyler Properties

Its a beautiful Monday morning in Phoenix, Arizona. Summer has finally come to an end here in the Phoenix Metro area and we have a good eight months of the kind of weather I moved to this area for over 12 years ago. It has been a wonderful ride and I have never looked back.

It has been an amazing experience watching the entire valley grow by leaps and bounds and even with the economic down turn, there are still roughly 6,000 to 7,000 people moving to the Phoenix Metro area per month. While there are many different reasons why people come to call Phoenix their home, I hear more often then not that they come to the valley for the 300 sunny days per year and 8 months of beautiful weather.

I believe people are just happier in general when the weather is good and the sun is shining on their faces. People tend to have a better outlook, are more apt to get out and be active which leads to a generally healthier lifestyle.

Since the real estate market collapsed near the beginning of 2007, homes all over the valley have dropped dramatically and real estate in places like Scottsdale, Phoenix, Glendale, Tempe... the list goes on and on, have become affordable again. In most cases,, homes are selling for what they were in 2000 to 2001. What a great time to buy your first home or start your investment portfolio. While we may never see the kind of rapid increase in home values like we did in the three to four years leading up to the collapse, we will certainly see steady growth on a more normal level. In my opinion the decline has come to a halt and I do not believe prices will fall much lower then they are currently at, if they fall any more at all.

Now is definitely the right time to start looking for that perfect home. Opportunities to buy real estate in a downturn such as this only happen a few times in a person's lifetime. You don't want to be one of those people who said, "I wish I had got in back in 2009."

I know my post seem a bit one sided and of course I am a little bias but I must say the Phoenix Arizona area is a wonderfull place to live and I have no intentions of ever leaving.

Thanks so much for reading.

Until Next time,
