Quality Arizona real estate has offered strong appreciation potential over the long term

Why Arizona?

  • 4th highest appreciation rates for real estate in U.S.
  • Over the next decade, it is predicted that 40% of the total growth for the Phoenix AZ area - about 128,000 new homes! - will be built in areas west of Phoenix.
  • Arizona's tourism numbers continue to grow.
  • Phoenix is the nation's number one city for entrepreneurism.
  • Named the best run city in the country by Governing Magazine, Phoenix AZ is also one of the fastest growing cities in the country over the last decade.

  Investment Advantages
Real estate is a tangible asset that offers you a unique combination of investment advantages:
  • Historically, quality Arizona real estate has offered strong appreciation potential over the long term
  • Residential real estate provides valuable tax advantages, since interest on home mortgages is usually tax-deductible
  • Investment properties can generate a steady stream of rental income
  • You can easily leverage real estate equity to make improvements, acquire additional properties, or pursue other investment opportunities

Benefits of Diversification
The real estate market doesn't always move in tandem with the securities markets, so investing in real estate can provide diversification. In fact, when the financial markets are turbulent, real estate is often viewed as a "safe haven" for investors. Plus, you can invest in different sectors of the real estate market -- single-family homes, condos, multi-unit complexes,  -- to diversify your holdings.
