I've been here since 2004. There wasn't much out here back then, but it has changed a lot. (You don't have to drive to the next town for a Walmart.) It's very safe, very peaceful.

All areas have their fair share of crime, but San Tan Valley homes are typically cheaper because they are so much farther from the city. Most of them are at least 13 miles to the freeway and then another 13-15 miles to the city areas. The land there was cheap when the builders bought it and they passed on the savings to the buyers. ... more
