Hi all! Thank you for your answers, very helpful! We are probably moving around april, so I may be contacting you for further help! I was also wondering, if anyone knew which was more predominant in Tucson, Electric or Gas Dryers? I have the opportunity to get rid of the electric dryer which has been siting in our garage for over THREE YEARS in a friend's yard sale, but my husband is worried we may need it when we move. Any help would be MUCH appreciated! THanks!

Check out my website ( buyers tab - it has community info, crime stats, school info and more. As Realtors, we can't suggest areas or recommend schools, but we can be the 'source of the source'. While I primarily represent buyers and sellers, I do have a military client transferring in the fall, leaving behind a nearly new home to rent! Email me through my site for details.

The Tanque Verde School District is top notch and a nice community to consider.

Thanks to all for the responses! We haven't gotten our paper orders yet, so we can't plan for TMO to move us. I am thinking it might be several months until we actually move, as my husband has a surgery planned, and lots of training to do for his new assaignment. It could be anywhere between october and january, and I really want a place before we move, instead of hanging out on base trying to find a new home! I think the Eastside is closest to base, and that's probably where we want to be. My mother lived there for a while in the 60's and loved it, but obviously things change! How is the crime rate? I head it's beautiful and there is a great music scene in Tucson, being a musician I feel I might want to be closer to that. The hubs will be gone a lot, so that would be more entertaining for me, and I might be able to connect more quickly with other musicians.
For renting a home: my husband is extrememly tall, we need a Master with room for a cali king bed, but still be able to walk freely around it. Tall ceilings and tall doors are a must. Also, must be pet friendly. We have the SWEETEST 14 month old puppy, boxer mix.

We may have a home on the eastside of Tucson. When are you thinking you would need something?

I love Tucson! We retired here from DMAFB (see my bio). There are lots of really nice areas in Tucson; little nooks and crannies you wouldn't even dream of! The base is close to Park Mall. There's great dining all over Tucson. As for schools and crime stats check out the stats on

Congrats on moving to Tucson, renting is a good idea before looking to buy. I would recommend contacting a local property management company or Google Property Management Company Tucson. Free sites like Trulia and Zillow are not very up to date, many times listings (including rentals) will show active when they are already under contract, or rented out.

I am sure some property managers will answer your question on here, give one a call & review your search criteria with them and they can help you find what you are looking for.

Best of luck.
