Although the property is in Tucson, that doesnt mean it will always be that way. Many Tucson properties are actually in unincorporated areas. They are in the County but not within city limits.
Recently, Tucson has voted to recogize Vail as it's own town, even though it is not incorporated as a town. This was to let the people of Vail know that if they form a town of their own, the City will not oppose it. They even said they encourage incorporation and the organization of a town government.
Expect to see big changes in Vail over the next few years!
Once a town incorporates, it needs funding and seeks to increase it's tax base. It does this in part by annexing neighboring areas.
Looking at Oro Valley, a community to the North of Tucson, it has grown 10 fold to 45,000 people over the last 20 years.

It is very close to Vail but is actually in Tucson city limits. Vail is a bedroom community of Tucson and is very nice and many parts are considered rural. Let me know if we Can Help.

I live in Vail. This address has a 85747 zip code which is a Tucson zipcode. Vail zipcode is 85641. Vail is only about 10 minutes away from Tucson. There are some communities in the Tucson area that are part of the Vail School district because Vail is that close to Tucson.

Vail is its own municipality but is still largely considered part of the Tucson metropolitan area.

Good question, this is in the 85747 and still considered in Tucson. This listing is no longer avaialble on MLS, looks like the lender may list it for sale as a foreclosure property in the future or possibly for sale at auction.

Best of luck.
