We bought in Jan 2012 and we had 1 scorpion in our bathroom. They are outside in piles of soft products-carpet foam pads etc. that is it. Warning if you have dogs! Lots of Sonoran toads- have a gland on the side of head that gives a wicked acid trip with a rapid heart beat- dehydration to dogs. We are way out there- Hidden Valley Area- so Maricopa in town is probably different. ... more

Have friends with rental homes here in Maricopa. The cost of buying a home is currently so low that renatal are not going well. Our very close friends have had their properties vacant since November of last year. That is not cost effective and they are considering selling. Those homes still need to be maintained and the high cost of the electric power and water in this area make it difficult. ... more

Millie, Almost NO ONE who lives in Maricopa works in Maricopa. Unless it is in fast food or retail. You would have to travel 45miles or more to find work in your field. I live in Maricopa and have for three years now. I love it, but some folks DON'T like the commute. It is very congested as there is really only one way to get out and in from each direction. Further, if you don't know what dairy farms smell like, when you visit Maricopa you will surely find out. The town of Maricopa has that COW smell almost all the time. They are trying to fix it, but haven't been successful yet. ... more

Hi Joe
I've lived in the rural part of Maricopa since 1983, boy has it grown! Population estimates are around 40K. (Census numbers won't be out until 2012) Excellent advice in the other post to contact PCSO and MPD for area crime statistics. Maricopa suffered with the fast growth of the boom and resulting bust. You can pick up gorgeous houses for a fraction of what they used to cost - 3000 sq ft homes for the low $100s are common.

There is a term for those who are short-selling and foreclosed on...renter. They have to live somewhere and can't buy again for a number of years. Many are staying in the same area because they like the community, friends, schools etc. Rents have remained strong compared to resale values. If you are willing to look at the overall picture on someone's credit history - they've never missed a car payment, credit card and other payments and only the mortgage is reporting as a negative, there are renters out there.

Another area that does not have quite the volume of houses on the market is Casa Grande. Casa Grande offers significantly more shopping and entertainment options, is located about 35 minutes from Phoenix and an hour from Tucson and is at the junction of I-10 and I-8. Home prices didn't fall as bad as Maricopa, but there are still great prices for rentals that cash flow, with amenities for when you move to the area.
Have a wonderful day
