SanTan Valley is a great area that is on the fringe of Phoenix. When we had the real estate bubble the fringes got hit the hardest and today are still offering great bargains. Mostly newer construction, single family homes, new hospital, most basic shopping etc. A little far from the major job pool that holds it back some with high priced gas, great for 2nd homes or retirement.
I personally live in Queen Creek with my family and feel very safe and comfortable.
Hey, I have been to Kissimmee several years ago. I know they have gators there...huh!
San Tan Valley is about 45 miles South East of down town Phoenix. The land is much less expensive the farther you go away from the city. We actually have quite a bit of rural land that is farmed with cotton and alfalfa or horse properties. Instead of 15 Target Stores we have one....instead of 20 Walmart Centers we have 2. We are surrounded on three sides with mountains. Not only are housing prices lower...but rent is too. Let me know if I can answer any other questions. I have lived in the South East valley now 18 years.......there is a visual presence of the Pinal County Deputies here and the response time is quick. I, myself, feel it is a safe place to live.
Let me know if I can answer any more questions or send you information on homes that would meet your criteria. How many bedrooms, RV gate, pool, acerage, Square footage, parking or lot size, etc. I can have them sent directly to your email address.
