Compared to Seattle, Phoenix is dirt cheap, gets sun obviously, and has all the things you want to do nearby. I still think it's a great place to retire or winter.


I'll have to spend a summer there to see if I truly would want to do year-round living there, not sure.


That's an inevitable set up--have a home in seattle and phoenix. One during the summer and the other during winter.

Also get a good air conditioner and repair person that will respond to trouble FAST.

Well my son's in laws are double digit millionaires so they have homes in Seattle and Lake Chelan and now looking for a winter home in Arizona....my son mentioned between Phoenix and Sedona so not sure exactly where they're looking. But yes, enviable set up.


We have our second home already in Maricopa that we bought in 2013 and have been renting out and now with me retiring in about 6 weeks, we can be there next winter....but now we are thinking we would rather be in Scottsdale or Chandler or possibly Tucson instead of Copa so we have decisions to make.
