If you could live anywhere in Arizona, where would it be?

My family moved to a small town in southern AZ. They inherited a home. Not sure I’d live there but I’d like to move close enough to drive every month and visit. Currently, I live in Baltimore, which sucks, but I picked up a remote job, so I can now move

      Yeah, also say Sedona.

      Yeah, also say Sedona.

      Sedona if you want all 4 seasons with plenty to do
      Flagstaff if you want more cool temps but it's full of hippies
      Globe/show low if just SighSee but not much to do

      Northern Scottsdale is okay but man is it expensive

      Are any rural towns worth living in? Just checked some prices and these towns have 2-bedroom apartments for under $1,000 while Sedona it seems is around $2000+ for the same size.
      >Northern Scottsdale is okay but man is it expensive
      hmm looks like Sedona is actually even more expensive. Would love to visit but I'm not sure it's worth it. I have no idea how much worse the economy will get, but I definitely want to get out of Baltimore in a few months

        TSMC and people leaving California moved this place up in terms of rent, if you're looking for a cheaper place to move AZ is not your friend to move to anymore.

        5-6 years when I moved here 850/mo for an apartment of house for <150-175k was easy. Now, good fricking luck.

        What's your budget looking like, that will be more of a factor than anything. Places in Tuscon and some along the outer rimm of the valley go for sub 1500, but you're not getting a 2br for under that most places.

          Sub-1500 would be nice. Sub-1000 would be even nicer. I just really hate paying so much in rent. I review my expenses every month and rent is always more than half of what I spend.

          Scottdale is full of rich guys and trophy wives. Fun to visit but it would be terrible to live there. Flagstaff or Sedona for me

          What attracts so many rich people? I know there are a lot of nice golf courses but it doesn't really have natural beauty compared to Flagstaff or Sedona it seems

            sub 1000 is not going to happen in AZ unless you go to Tuscon, which not sure if you want.
            >What attracts so many rich people?
            Weather, 6ish months out of the year it's perfect. Lot's simply have a home in Phoenix and one elsewhere. Phoenix exploded due to tech, cheap land, government research programs, and cheap business laws in the 70's->00's when the farms mostly pulled out and sold land for pennies. People simply stayed because some insane loopholes regarding taxation, how cheap land was, and so on.

            Personally if I had bought a house when I first moved here I probably would stay, yeah summers are bleh but it's really only "bad" when you have the 4-6 weeks of heavy monsoon in the valley. After that it's mainly fine and some of the landscapes with no one giving a frick places can be great. I'm moving to texas next year simply due to housing costs and other dumbshit that's been going on.

              Is Tucson that bad? Would it be worth getting a luxury apartment in Tucson for 1500 or going to a nicer city for a basic 2 bedroom? I'm assuming the crime is what people shit on that place for. It seems the weather is pretty much the same, maybe a little cooler

                Tuscon isn't bad IMO, it's just grimy feeling it's hard to explain. Little mexico is a shit dump that you will 100% learn to avoid the first time you get there, lots of retirees moreso than that of phoenix it feels like, anything fun to do is by the college and downtown is underwhelming. The crime rate is higher but it's fairly easy to avoid, your buck would go farther for something nicer there.

                One of the big issues is that when the economy slows Tuscon gets hit pretty hard, rather harder than the rest of the state. There is also the fact that smog and wildfire smoke tends to trickle down that way due to the wind currents. Cartels are real but they tend to stick far more to themselves as the police don't really frick around as much but that's to everyone. Mountains are far easier to get to but far less things to do in them compared to the industry of sedona.

                The pro is that you get closer to "all 4 seasons" due to the elevation and how big el nino/la nina is. Your dollar will go farther. Traffic isn't as bad as generally most things keep moving on the grid based roads, the airport is pretty no nonsense in terms of getting in/out of.

                Yuma exists as well but it depends what you really do for hobbies. At least with the already listed cities you can have outdoors to do things with, Yuma would be good if you like quick cheap trips to the baja

                Sounds good. Thanks a ton for the suggestions anon. I may just move there to a nicer gated community. It's just a lot closer to where my family is staying, so drives would be easier. While there I'll just visit Sedona a few times and probably end up getting a place there once it makes a bit more sense for me.

                As for things to do, I mainly hike or go on walks to see the sunrise/sunsets. Probably wont visit the college or downtown at all. I tend to enjoy staying inside the most and then planning out trips to experience whatever I find exciting. Big mistake I've made before is living somewhere expensive, doing everything there is to do within a few months and then just feeling bored while stuck paying ridiculous costs in rent. Rather use the money/time to experience new exciting things than get drunk at some lame bars for the 1000th time.

        Scottsdale, northern scottsdale has a lot of new engineers and people supporting the TSMC plants move in. Lot's of the older people actually house flipped and moved.

    No idea where to live but when I visited 6 years ago I loved Phoenix. Was a nice city with cool trails and casinos on every side

    I live in Phoenix and am unironically considering moving to Mexico as I work remotely. Phoenix went from cheap to affordable to California tier expensive. Its not even worth living here. Jobs here pay shit and cost of living is high because californian homosexuals moved here and house prices basically doubled in a few years.

    you basically have to make 100k+ a year now to afford a decent house in phoenix metro.

    Yuma if you want warm winters and an easygoing vibe in a river town, and easy access on I-8 to southern Arizona or the SoCal beaches. Most of the city is a vast block of suburban boulevards, and summers are hotter than hell.
    Bisbee if you want to chill out in a quirky little town in the mountains (elevation over 5000 feet). Close to Sonora, which has its share of interesting destinations.
    Safford if you want all the services surrounded by a vast region of desert desolation. Colder than Phoenix or Tucson in winter, but not too much colder.
    Lake Havasu City if you want warm winters, the lakefront party life and all the services. You are pretty far from southern Arizona, however.
    Prescott if you want to live in the pines and enjoy cooler temps.
    Arivaca if you want to live in the middle of nowhere, where life goes slowly.
    Haven't spent enough time in Benson or Sierra Vista to know if those are places worth living in, but they seem popular.

    I’d melt anywhere else. Arizona should be nuked for how hot it is.
