How much cheaper? Here’s what Arizona homes prices look like to Canadians.

Let’s start with the largest city in the Valley of the Sun, Phoenix.


This is how Phoenix home prices look to Arizonans.

Let’s look at another city, Scottsdale. Here is the median home price in Scottsdale priced in US dollars.


The view from Canada makes those spectacular vistas of Pinnacle Peak look even more awesome.


Sun City West

We can’t leave out the West Valley. Here is Sun City West priced in US dollars.


It’s a bit shocking to look down on Sun City West with the eyes of a Canadian. The median home price looks pretty dang good!

I hope you can see what all the excitement is about.
