It is actually less expensive per month to purchase in this area than it is to rent. Also, the free grant money for buying a foreclosure in the western zip codes and SE like Queen Creek is still available in selected zip codes for now.
For a rental, you should look a few weeks before you are ready. The inventory you see now will not be there in January.
