One thing not mentioned in the previous answers is the utilities. Global Water and ED3 electricity control the water/elec. to the new homes and their rates are extremely high, moreso than in the Valley, AND they are going up yearly. Attend the city meetings; you will know real fright if you live here. In Dec. the Az Corporation Commission came to town to listen to complaints and over 700,000, yes, 700,000 people showed up to scream. It didn't help, just delayed for a short period of time the rate increases coming. Run. Who knows what will happen to this town when it implodes.
