Phoenix is growing at a rapid pace and is now the fifth largest city in the United States! What makes Phoenix such an attractive area? There are four main reasons the metro Phoenix area continues to be one of the top relocation destinations in the U.S. The top reason is the strong job market. Several large technology and manufacturing companies have built significant operations in our state that continues to drive job growth. And of course, we have beautiful landscapes and consistently good weather (if you can stand the summer heat). Another factor is home affordability. Phoenix, and all of Arizona, has wonderful recreational activities and cultural sites.
Where else in America can you wear shorts and t-shirts and then drive a couple of hours and go snow skiing all in the same day? And of course we are a major sports town with the Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Coyotes, and Arizona State University all located in The Valley Of The Sun!
Phoenix Residential Real Estate
The metro Phoenix area has a lot to offer in terms of choice of homes. Scottsdale and North Phoenix are known for high-end, luxury homes. Chandler and Gilbert offer large, newer homes on large lots. Mesa is a great place for traditional suburban neighborhoods that are well kept and few HOAs to deal with. Within each of these cities you’ll find lots of variety.

Rollover Your 401(k) Balance
If your relocation involves changing employers then you will also want to strongly consider moving your 401(k) account balance into a Rollover IRA. Even if you have the option to leave it in the plan there is typically not much reason to do so. Here are some of the benefits of rolling over your funds to an IRA:
1. Broader range of investment options
2. Greater ability to change investment strategies
3. Greater ability to hedge downside risk
4. Access to professional asset management
5. Access to personal financial planning services
We can provide you with a proposal that shows how we would invest your funds, the performance history, and the costs associated with rolling over your 401(k) Plan balance to an IRA managed by Larson Wealth Management.
