For real estate buyers and sellers, Phoenix, and indeed, all of Arizona presents a wide range of investment opportunities.

Arizona is named for a small town just south of the American-Mexican border called "Arizonac," after the O'odham word for "small spring," where native North Americans have lived for thousands of years. In the 16th century, Spanish explorers mapped the area and renamed the town as Arizona, a name which was later attached to the whole northern part of New Spain. The territory would become the northwest frontier in Mexico's battle for independence from Spain during the late 1700s and early 1800s, a period which left behind a number of historic fort sites and helped produce cities such as Tucson. Arizona was purchased from Mexico by the United States in the late 1840s, and became the 48th U.S. state in 1912.
Today, Arizona is among the most successful and popular states in the U.S., and is home to the nation's 21st largest economy. With booming technology and manufacturing sectors, and a traditionally strong tourism economy, Arizona is also one of the fastest growing regions in America. As the state grows, its natural splendor is protected through a network of National Parks and recreation areas, as well as urban natural preserves, helping ensure this state will always be a great place to call home.
