The most desired areas tend to be in the west parts of the state, while more affordable homes are in the northeast regions.

Median house prices in Arizona are $318,706, meaning Arizona homes are less expensive than the US median of $376,286. We analyzed a significant sample of states with similar populations like Massachusetts and Indiana, and found homes in Arizona cost about the same.

These are the best neighborhoods as judged by the market: the places people most want to live. While these areas tend to have lower crime rates and higher quality of life, it is primarily a map of the best areas by median home value in Arizona.

In regards to housing disparity, the quality of neighborhood within Arizona varies moderately.
