We are moving to the Phoenix area in May. I just need to find a safe rental with good schools, under $1000 a month. Any area suggestions?

Are you looking for a single family home or a condo? How many bedrooms do you need in your new home?

All good answers. The rental market is very strong here. You may consider a town home rental in north Phoenix because they generally cost less money.

You certainly do want to base it on work location and schools if you have children. 3 bedrooms for $1000.00 is limiting, is purchasing a home an option at this point?

Depending on where you'll be working...you might consider areas outside of Phoenix. A safe three bedroom rental under $1000 with good schools might be difficult to find but is certainly not impossible! However, 3bedroom rentals under $1000 will likely be on the small side ex. less than 1300sq. The north west valley (Peoria, North Glendale) has great schools (Deer Valley School District) and rental rates are reasonable. Other communities to consider are Gilbert, Chandler, South Tempe, Ahwatukee. These Arizona suburbs are safe and offer newer homes and infrastructure as well as great shopping, dining, and outdoor activities.

Phoenix is a huge area. So where you live will dependent on other factors like where you will work, play, etc. You do not want to work in Mesa and live in Surprise or work in Goodyear and live in Fountain Hills.

For you $1000 budget you will have limited choices, either in the west side of Phoenix or one of the distant suburbs. I would try to narrow down an area like Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Peoria, etc. then start your search.

Carefree, Cave Creek, Scottsdale, and Paradise Valley are among the best school districts here. As with any big city there are good and bad areas. All of these school districts have safe neighborhoods around them. Please let me know if I can help you with your search!
