Metro Phoenix Population Growth: 
City To Add 1 Million People By 2030

Street Scout
By Catherine Reagor | January 26th, 2020

Metro Phoenix is expected to grow by 1 million people during the next decade. That will be like adding a city the size of San Jose, California or Austin, Texas to the Valley.

The billion-dollar question is where all those new residents will live. Most of the available land is on the edge of the West Valley and deep into Pinal County in the southeast Valley. About 5 million people already call metro Phoenix home, and the region already faces infrastructure and housing affordability issues.

Mark Stapp, director of the Master of Real Estate Development program at Arizona State University, acknowledges the challenges. "There are opportunities with our expected growth, but there are also issues that need to be addressed now," Stapp said at an ASU event this past week called "Where will we put another 1 million people?"

Top Arizona developers and planners attended the meeting, which focused on how to accommodate the Valley's next growth spurt.


About 35% of the Valley's current population lives in Phoenix, 34% live in the East Valley, 22% in the West Valley and 10% in Pinal County, according to MAG. In 25 years, metro Phoenix is expected to grow to 7 million people.  The growth is expected to shift with the population spread out like this: 30% living in Phoenix, 27% in the East Valley, 28% in the West Valley and 15% in Pinal.

Water Heater Replacements a Good Bet in Today's Energy-efficient Driven Market

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties |

When considering purchasing a home, prospective buyers often have a long list of questions they'd like answered before making a final decision. And, with more buyers being energy-conscious today, they may be put off by large energy, heating and water bills that are a direct result of old systems and non energy-efficient offerings.

While savvy house hunters will most certainly ask about the age and condition of the basic systems and appliances in your home, it's important to think carefully about which upgrades make the most sense before placing your home on the market.

One change to strongly consider is the water heater. If your unit is anywhere between 10-15 years old, upgrading can be a big improvement, catching the attention of a prospective buyer. New models are up to 20 percent more efficient and can save up to $700 in energy costs over the life of the unit. Of course, it's always a good idea to research your options before choosing a replacement.
