What is most important to your family? Is it high performing public shools? Good charter or private schools near your home? Do you want to live close to your employment?
I prefer to avoid rush hour traffic so I recommend new residents observe traffic patterns from their work to where they would like to live. Also, if you have a family you may want to be in an area like Desert Ridge which is a North Phoenix planned community near Scottsdale. The kids can walk to school amd shopping. Grayhawk is another planned community nearby in North Scottsdale that offers similar amenities although less shopping in walking distance than Desert Ridge.
We have created a free relocation network that can help people more easily transition to life in Phoenix and the surrounding area. Services include job placement for trailing spouse, mortgages, real estate services, affordable home renovation, design and furnishings as well as helping families become more comfortable in their new neighborhood through concierge-like personalized recommendations of needed service providers.
Please contact me to discuss your particular needs. Good luck in your move to Arizona.
