Why Are So Many Wealthy People Moving To Arizona’s Paradise Valley?

Arizona's Most Affluent City

For those seeking to live the good life, Arizona's community of Paradise Valley is where it's at. Featuring large-acreage homesites, luxury homes in Paradise Valley are quite spectacular. With many residents enjoying a net worth of over $100 million, PV is becoming more and more popular. Why the big boom over the last few years?  For one thing, before the pandemic, most Paradise Valley homes for sale were purchased by local Arizonans. However, post pandemic, many of those purchasing properties in Paradise Valley have been from out of state. Even more importantly, they have been buying these homes as their PRIMARY RESIDENCES. Why? With the rise of the ability to run a corporation from anywhere in the world, even BILLIONAIRES are leaving New York and California.

Located between Phoenix and Scottsdale, Paradise Valley ranked as the 50th most expensive U.S. zip code in PropertyShark's 2021 survey. In comparison, the area ranked 93rd in 2019. Home to many celebrities and many high profile execs, PV features golf courses and resorts such as Sanctuary Camelback Mountain. Many of the parcels of residential land are zoned for one acre or more. These are just SOME of the reasons the area has become so popular.
