If you want New construction, what is available now may not be what is available in a year or two. A few months ago I was helping a couple relocate and in the space of 2 weeks, 3 of the 4 New projects they were interested in sold out. In the 4th, all that was available was the model home, which they bought.
My suggestion would be to take your next vacation in Tucson, decide what part of town you like best, and meet/select a realtor that can help you in this process.
Good luck and welcome!
The oldest houses in Tucson are close to downtown. The city expanded east and west in the 1950s through 1980s. There are few new houses within five miles of downtown.
In the 1990s, huge subdivisions were built to the far northwest (Continental Ranch) and southeast (Rita Ranch).
In the 2000s, construction started to the southwest and south. These houses tend to be less expensive than the houses to the northwest and southeast. When you get here and start to compare neighborhoods, you will see why.
The place to start would be to figure out how much you can afford. If you are planning to move to Tucson without a job, and you need a job, find the job first. Many people are surprised at how difficult it is to find a good paying job in Tucson. Unless you really enjoy driving and paying for gas, you might want to select your neighborhood based on where you work. It can take over an hour to get from one side of Tucson to the other.
If you don't need to work, and you can pay cash, then the question of where to look for a home depends on how much you want to spend and what you want in your surroundings and neighbors. It would be helpful to work with a buyer's representative who has sold hundreds of homes in all parts of our glorious city.

Tucson has quite a few newer subdivisions throughout the city. I would be more than happy to work with you in the coming year or so until you are ready. Please contact me directly at your convenience so that I can get a better sense for your needs and desires!
If you need to be pre-qualified for a mortgage, please consider me as a source.
You will want to get pre-approved with a lender at some point but if you are more than 1 year out, that cant wait until you get closer to making a decision.
Best of luck.

I would recommend contacting a REALTOR in the Tucson area and ask them to set up a "portal" into their MLS system that has the specifications you are desiring. This will provide you the most accurate data.
