When evaluating a neighborhood you should investigate local conditions. Depending on your own particular needs and tastes, some of the following factors may be more important considerations than others:
quality of schools
proximity to schools, employment, hospitals, shops, public transportation, prisons, freeways, airports, beaches, parks, stadiums and cultural activities such as museums, concerts and theaters.
Once we have the answers to these questions, it would be easy to locate cities, areas within the cities and communities and neighborhoods within that would fit your needs. Paradise Valley and Scottsdale are great cities and have great schools, but they may not fit your needs based on the Home prices or distance to work, etc. Excelling schools are found in the neighboring Deer Valley School District, the homes are near freeways, homes prices are reasonable compared to other cities and you can find great homes in these and other neighborhoods.
