Which neighborhoods are up-and-coming in Tucson?

Asked by Trulia Tucson, Tucson, AZ Fri Apr 12, 2013

Help the community by answering this question:


Sahuarita and Vail are popular up and coming areas. Vail has the best rated large school district in Arizona, and also easy access to I-10, the Air Force base, and Raytheon/IBM.

If your business involves commuting to Phoenix, Marana may be a good choice.

Depending on specific interests and needs, there are multiple choices, great prices, and low interest rates.

Call, I can help!

I really like this question! It taps into what I've been interested in Tucson since 1993! I'd have to ask more questions to determine your likes, lifestyle, and interests--so please call! There are many diverse neighborhoods up & coming, like Civano & Vail in the East & SE, Wild Horse Ranch and Saddlebrooke in Catalina, Dove Mountain & Red Rock in NW Tucson, Even "Saguaro Bloom" near Picture Rocks in West Tucson, Sahuarita down South on I-19 has a lake & water park! Many choices here, just call or email to share the enthusiasm!
Thank you!

First of all, I love this question. Tucson is a dynamic town with a great degree of differentiation. You can go one block to the next and be in completely different price points with vastly different amenities and surroundings. In the central part of town, I highly recommend Poet's Corner, West University, and Barrio Viejo. If you are looking for a newer built home, There are small pockets in the peripheral regions that have high quality homes and neighborhoods that are just being formed.

Please call or email me directly as I would be more than happy to speak to these matters in greater detail.

Make it a great day!

I would suggest you check out the northwest side of Tucson. Marana is easy access to !-10 on and off to downtown Tucson or a short trip up to Pheonix. New homes being built rapidly. Plenty of biking ,hiking and golf. Lots of shopping and medical facilities. Marana is planning a new downtown area and has just finished the plans for completion of a Heritage Park. Check it out at http://www.townof I would be happy to send you more information on this up and coming northwest side of Tucson. I think you will love it here.

Good afternoon Trulia Tucson,

The Town of Marana voters have just approved the Home Rule Option in the May 21 elections by a margin of 2 to 1.
Prior to that election, during the town’s lengthy wastewater litigation battle with Pima County, the Arizona Court of Appeals ruled Marana did not have the authority to own and operate its own wastewater facility due to a 1988 ballot question that was considered too vague.

This result has now cleared the way to fee up a backlog of building permits that were on hold within Marana. There could now be a construction mini boom ahead and the early signs support this.

Also, there are plans to upgrade the Tangerine corridor starting from the I-10 Freeway east to La Canada. Aproximatly a 10 mile streatch of road.

Marana will continue to be one of the fastest growing areas in Arizona.

Best regards,

It depends on what a buyer is interested and what part of town they are interested in living, price range and etc. For a $100K buyer they will need to consider different neighborhoods and subdivisons than the $300K+ buyer.
