I have lived in all parts of Tucson, and there is something special and unique with each area. What is important to you in an area? Is it home prices, school systems, close to medical facilities, shopping nearby? First thing you need to do is get Pre-Approved by a lender. (I can help with this). If you are paying Cash, that is great, too. Make a list of everything you want in your new home and narrow it down to the five most important. This will narrow your search and help you and your Realtor make your home search more precise and quicker. If you need to, rent for a few months and learn about the city, consult with friends, co-workers, family, and a knowledgeable Realtor.
Hope this helps and please let me know if i can be of assistance.
