Once you get inland, or at least not near the appropriate fishing area, (read FRESH lobster in Texas), what you will end up with is FRESH FROZEN.
That is what the majority of fish eaters eat!
Fish starts to deteriorate minutes after being caught; it needs to be frozen immediately!
If it's hours or days to the table, it could be re-frozen five or six times.
Just a fact of life.

Most of Ahwautukee does have Homeowner Associations. Some of the original section does not, that would be the NE corner area. HOA Dues today run from $40 a month to $70 a month in most areas. Condos are much higher, some of the gated areas with water features are also higher.

One of the popular public gym spots is the YMCA.

Good questions! Are you in AZ now?

1. Market Crash in Phoenix

2. Bad timing to build a large condo complex

3. Condos can be hard to finance today

4. Priced higher than a single family house so many will buy the house first

5. Location is still fairly far north for some

6. Bad timing

Keep in mind that each association is different, therefore fees will vary; as for electric bills, they too vary depending on usage, property size, etc.; if looking to buy, consider working with agent of your own, he/she can provide any necessary information, suitable properties, schedule showings, etc.; be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

Fred Shocklie answered:
Hi Kathleen

You are asking such a subjective question. It is hard to answer without knowing your daughter and her concerns. Buying a home involves so many variables, it is difficult to address them in this type of forum. I suggest you start with the Buyer's Advisory, This document is a good place to start your research and gives you all types of additional resources. Next, I suggest you find a good buyer broker. Someone who has a lot of transactions under their belt and hire them to help you. Often the cost of the buyer broker's services are covered by the seller of the property.

I hope this is helpful.

The best way to learn about an area is to visit it yourself and talk to merchants and people in the area. Realtors are not allowed to comment on the livability of an area due to fair housing laws. A bib No-No in our industry.

In addition, has a crime stats web site that will give you a lot of good information. Here is the URL to the site:
