I personally like it, but I might be biased since I live in the Phoenix area. At the end it is like many other places, there are some very good areas and some that are not very popular. In terms of housing the most popular areas will command higher rents, and the less popular areas will have lower rents.
My advice will be to come visit and stay in the area you want to live and stay for a while, before making any serious commitment. You may find that the area is ideal for you, or you may find that it is not what you were expecting.
I suggest you do some research into various communities here. They can be quite different in character. There is a ton of information available online. Use the link I have provided below to enter zip codes or city names, and find out more about the places that interest you.
Nothing, however, takes the place of actually visiting the communities before making a decision to move, and seeing for yourself. I also advise my relocation clients to knock on the doors of a few potential neighbors for 2 reasons: you get to see what kind of neighbors you might have, and you hear what they have to say about the area.
If you are planning to visit before making a decision, I would love to show you around. Please feel free to contact me to set up a tour.

Phoenix like other major cities have good and bad areas. I moved here because I like the standard of living and the people.
What type of home are you looking for? Do you want to be near friends or relatives? Are you planning to finance the purchase or pay cash?
