Pinal County ranked best in Arizona to get a mortgage
PHOENIX — Getting a mortgage can be a stressful time, but according to a recent study, it can be a little less stressful if you are in the right location.
In Arizona, that location is Pinal County, according to SmartAsset.
SmartAsset released its third annual study on the best places to get a mortgage in the nation, ranking Pinal County as the best place in the state to do so. The county ranked 34th nationally.
“We are on a roll,” said Pinal County Economic Development Program Manager Tim Kanavel, in a Pinal County release. “Last week, we were ranked very highly by the nation’s largest brokerage firm and now we see this news. The message is getting out that Pinal County is becoming a top-player not only statewide, but nationally when it comes to attracting good paying, forward thinking companies to the Southwest. That reputation will only grow as the year goes on. Now is the time to be investing in Pinal County.”
The study looked at markets, mortgage approvals, mortgage rates, borrowing costs and property taxes to determine the order.
Sumter County in Florida was named the best place in the nation to get a mortgage.
