Why Is It So Difficult To Find A Phoenix Home Right Now?

If you’re looking for the perfect Phoenix area home – and you’re having trouble finding it – you’re not alone. Many people in the market for a previously owned Phoenix home call me wondering why the pickings seem so slim, given the fact that Maricopa County sports a population of nearly 4 million people.

Maricopa County is a fairly populated area – 3,954,958 – but so are the major communities in the county:

  • Phoenix (1,445,632)
  • Mesa (439,041)
  • Chandler (236,123)
  • Glendale ((226,721)
  • Scottsdale (217,386)
Read the rest of our report on the challenges of finding a Phoenix home for sale in today's market.
