Housing is essential to economic recovery for the state of Arizona and for its cities, counties, neighborhoods and families. This report examines the current rental and ownership conditions in Arizona and highlights market trends, including the impact of housing affordability on our economy. This report also emphasizes the important role that housing plays in creating and maintaining a stable environment for Arizonans.
For this reason the Arizona Housing Alliance endorses a national initiative called HomeMatters™ and the underlying principle that for both renters and owners, home is more than the roof over our head. Home impacts every aspect of daily life, including health, safety, and educational attainment.
