I have been to Arizona several times and know agents there.  I have never heard of screens being mandatory on a home.  Screens are nice to have on windows for when the weather is nice and as a cost saving feature to block the heat from the sun.

Screens are mostly used for preventative measures; though, requirements on what should or should not be included in a structure are solely dependent on the type of home financing product the buyer is applying for. Also the appraiser's subjective opinion on the overall condition of the property plays a role on determining suitability as he compared his appraisal analysis to the mortgage appraisal standards for acceptable property condition. i would suggest consulting your local real estate agent to determine the types of financing available for your home, i.e. conventional, FHA, VA, etc. and taking this info to determine whether or not you should place window screens.
