No other metropolitan area’s housing market has grown faster than Phoenix, where home values rose 24% over the past year. The growth is expected to continue as well. Between 2013 and 2014, home values are projected to rise an additional 10.6%. The unemployment rate in the Phoenix metro area was just 6.7% in February 2013, down a percentage point from the same month in 2012. Notably, construction jobs were up 8.2% from the previous year, likely an indicator of a more robust housing market.
