hi, my name is jennifer tillman and i am a Realtor/Property Manager for Copper Rose Realty here in Tucson. i would say to start looking at rentals close to work. while you are out looking you will start to learn the different areas and communities. Rent for a year and you will then figure out which areas of tucson you like. each area of tucson has wonderful things to offer, mountains, hiking, shopping. my email is get in touch with me about a month and a half before you are going to move and i will start sending you rental properties to start looking at. thanks jennifer

Hi Stahlnecker,

I answered your other question this morning as well. In addition, renting is a fantastic idea in terms of finding out what area of town you want to live in. Please consider contacting a local property management company (try Google). Once you move here, get into a 3-6 month lease get pre-approved with a lender.

Then, meet with a local Realtor to have them show you properties that are available at that time. No sense looking now, as the inventory is going to change between now and end of the year.

When you are ready, please click on my profile and give me a call. I can help.

There are many lovely areas in Tucson! Where you look depends on what is important to you and your family. My website has a feature called Market Insider. Here you can explore price trends, schools, demographics and much more about different communities.

Renting for a little while might be a good way to discover just exactly what part of the Tucson metropolitan area appeals to you, but keep in mind our market is picking up in the under $200k price range. Prices on those homes are currently seeing a bit of an increase.

If you would like to speak in person about your move, please give me a call. Meanwhile, perhaps signing up for a Market Leader account will get you started!

That would depend on what area of Tucson you will be working, going to school, etc. There are many great areas in Tucson to live. With gas prices as they are, you may want to live as close as possible to the area to which you will be commuting. Do you know where you will be working, or attending U of A possibly?
