Phoenix Real Estate
Phoenix is the capital and largest city in Arizona as well as the sixth largest city in the country with a population of more than 1.5 million on 517.948 square miles. With over 300 days of sunshine and an average temperature of 73 degrees, Phoenix offers a year round active lifestyle. Transportation in the city is getting more sophisticated with a new light rail system that connects downtown Phoenix with Tempe and Mesa to allow residents to commute from the suburbs. Phoenix has much to offer with America’s largest art walk, performing arts, music, sports, museums and more. One can find almost anything in the form of entertainment downtown. The Phoenix restaurant scene is emerging at a world class level with its very own chef Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco named the “Best Pizza in the World” by New York Times contributor Ed Levine among many other notable celebrities like Oprah and Rachel Ray. If professional sports has your interest, Phoenix has every professional sport available, however, many teams play outside of the city. Downtown, there is America West arena which is home to the Phoenix Suns basketball team (NBA) and Bank One ballpark which is home to the Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB). The central corridor of downtown is one of the largest centers of employment. Drive Central Avenue and you will come across plenty of notable institutions such as the Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, and a few of the valley’s most sought after private schools; All Saints Episcopal Day School, Brophy College Preparatory for boys and Xavier College Prep for girls. One can find almost any type of housing including modern lofts, apartments, quaint historical homes, and lavish estates. The Biltmore Financial district / Camelback Corridor is located on the East side of Phoenix with luxury shopping, dining, and residences. Arcadia is another sought after neighborhood in Phoenix with large grass lots, mature trees and a variety of architectural styles.
