Phoenix’s East Valley and the Arizona real estate market has had its ups and downs in the past 20 years. Starting in the late 1990’s and continuing until the 2008 market crash, the population of the East Valley, and the average price of East Valley real estate, rose steadily. For example, the population of Mesa rose nearly 4 percent between 2000 and 2008, and Mesa AZ real estate prices were at record highs when the crash occurred.
