Whether they’re a student or not, some people just love the hustle and bustle of a college town. There’s always something happening, be it a festival, a concert, the thriving and vibrant nightlife, or the plethora of cuisine available night and day. While the Phoenix major metropolitan area boasts an impressive number of colleges across the region, no town exemplifies the college lifestyle like Tempe does.
Home to several colleges and career schools like Arizona State University, University of Phoenix, Rio Salado Community College, Brookline College, and more, Tempe is indisputably the heart of Arizona’s college scene.
For sports fans, Tempe is home to many professional teams and many more come to the Valley for the spring training season, so ready your hat, grab a bag of peanuts, and get your big foam #1 hand. For outdoor recreation, the Tempe Town Lake is a beautiful location and Tempe offers a multitude of activities such as rock climbing, hiking, biking, mountain climbing, and more at the South Mountain and Papago Parks.
The Tempe homes for sale are some of the most affordable in the Valley. While Tempe is a college town, naturally not everyone in Tempe is a student, so the housing market is not what one would generally expect in a college town and offers a wide range of prime real estate. Whether looking for a small house to call your own or a luxury dream home in a private, gated community, Tempe homes for sale run the gamut in size, style, and pricing, so you’re sure to find the perfect piece of real estate to call home.
Located in the southeast side of Phoenix, Tempe also has easy access to the METRO Lightrail and one of the best public transportation systems in the state, with buses running more frequently and at later hours, making sure you can get to where you need to go.
