Moving from California to Arizona

It cannot be denied that more people are moving out of California than in and Arizona has been a popular destination to make the move to There are a few reasons why people are moving to Arizona from California.

If you are looking to stay somewhere just as sunny as California, Arizona is a great place to look. With dry heat all year round, be prepared for hot summers reaching 100 degrees and above regularly.

What also makes Arizona appealing is the cheaper price tag that comes with it. One that plays a big factor when it comes to moving is the cost of a home. The median home price in Arizona, as of March 2021, is $302,500 which is only slightly above the national average in the United States. To see the comparison, the average cost of an Arizona home is half of what it typically is in California.

Best Cities in Arizona

There are a lot of cities to consider when it comes to moving to the Grand Canyon State. Whether you are looking for a big city or more of a quiet town to raise your family, here are a few places to start your search:

Phoenix: If you are looking for a city feel while still having affordable housing and cost of living, Phoenix is a great option. Phoenix also gives you the best of both worlds with a bustling city full of small, local businesses, and vast mountains surrounding the city giving one plenty of hiking options.

Scottsdale: This city is ideal if you are looking for a home for your family. Scottsdale’s schools consistently rank as some of the top in the state, making it a great choice for your kids. This city is also promising for those looking to settle down thanks to a prosperous job and housing market.

Tucson: For those who love the outdoors, whether it be biking, running or hiking, Tucson offers the best of the best when it comes to outdoor activities. With a numerous number of trails for both biking and running, as well as endless amounts of hiking trails, Tucson has been ranked one of the best areas for this reason.

Mesa: Mesa is a great option if you are looking for somewhere with a little bit of everything. This city offers an array of things to do such as shopping, museums, and restaurants. You can also enjoy the outdoors at places like the Lost Dutchman State Park or the Usery Mountain Regional Park.

How to Plan for a Long-Distance Move

A lot goes into planning a long-distance move no matter where you’re choosing to go. Before deciding on which city to move to there are also many aspects to look at. For example, if you are used to getting around using buses, subways, trains or taxis, as this is more common in California than Arizona, make sure to check what your new city offers in terms of public transportation. It is also important to research schooling in the area if you have any children and enroll them in school before the move.

Leading up to the move, create a detailed list of all the things you want to come with you to ensure that all your items arrive safely. You should also ensure that all your documents have been updated with your new address at least a month before you make the move.
