In its pioneer days Arizona was built on the 5 Cs – copper, cattle, cotton, citrus and climate. The first four have all faded into varying degrees of irrelevance but climate is still bringing new settlers into the Grand Canyon State. When Arizona filled out the United States map by becoming the 48th state in 1912 there were fewer than a quarter-million residents; one hundred years later the population is pushing seven million.
Although known for its desert terrain, the constant stream of newcomers can find land for any taste in Arizona. Yuma County serves up the classic desert climate in an international setting on the Mexico border where the sun shines 350 days a year. For those seeking a high desert environment Pima County and its university town of Tucson, nestled among saguaro cacti and known for its open culture, is the destination of choice.
Undeveloped land in northern Arizona is draped in Ponderosa pines and climbs to elevations over 12,000 feet. The region’s economic hub, the city of Flagstaff, rests at 7,000 feet. This region is not only known for its cooler temperatures but boasts ski resorts in the winter. Arizona land even has options for water lovers around Lake Havasu on the Colorado River.
Traces of the Old West can still be found in the southeast desert around the historic mining town of Bisbee that has received an infusion of artists in recent years. Land with mineral rights attached can still be bought in Cochise County, Apache County and Navajo County.
One of the biggest decisions land buyers face in Arizona is how close to Phoenix to purchase. The modern colossus that has developed in central Arizona is home to more than half the state’s people and contains all the cultural and economic advantages of a modern major metropolitan area. For those who find that uncomfortable there are remote pockets of grasslands and desert scrubland that are more affordable and still within range of local services.
