Residents from Northern California are driving demand in Arizona’s home market. According to a report from Realtor.com, Sacramento capital is coming to the market to purchase a second home. The activity has helped push demand in Arizona to one of the top housing markets in the country since 2017. This trend has been true for both single-family homes as well as condos.

“As a certain part of the population starts to contemplate life changes, like retirement, they are looking for an amenities-rich lifestyle, experience-driven and long-term affordability,” Crel Vogel, a sales manager at Optima Kierland, tells GlobeSt.com. “Many have come accustom to an elevated life experience and are looking to maintain or expand on that experience for a longer period – into and past retirement. Many times that means leaving higher taxed areas, trading in their homes and moving to a more affordable location that offers all of the amenities and experiences that they will be able to sustain for a long time.”
