Fantastic.. We have the best weather and traffic is somewhat of a non-issue. Why do you ask?

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

I live in Chandler (South East of Phoenix) and when I watch the news we and Queen Creek are generally a couple of degrees cooler. I don't think it makes a big difference in the grand schemes of things. The outskirts of the valley tend to get cooler but can also get hit hard when thunderstorms roll in. Hope that helps! ... more

Hello donjac in Cut Bank Montana! You would find Sun City West, Arizona to be one of the most disability friendly communities in the nation. After living here for more than 20-years, I can tell you the Sun City communities were designed from the beginning with seniors and the disabled in mind. You can go to to view many of our lifestyle advantages. All of the rec centers, pools, etc., are constructed to accommodate the disabled. Our Banner Del Webb Hospital, located within Sun City West is also one of the finest hospitals in the country. Google it for more information. To enable Sun City West residents to live out their lives in their retirement "hometown," the community offers four assisted-living residences plus three facilities for the memory-impaired. Hospice care is also available locally.Housing is also disabled friendly, with all homes on one floor, wide doors, etc. I also have a complete list of services that can help you with anything you might need. The weather, conveniences and people are great and you won't find a flake of snow. Come on down, you'll be glad you did! Please give me a call at 623-363-9128 or email me at if I can be of further assistance. ... more

Mark, we are realtors - not water quality experts. We assist with the sale of your home, not with testing your water or providing you with water analysis reports. If you are seeking real estate advice, posting your question here on Trulia is appropriate. If you are looking for water quality analysis and reports, I suggest you contact the City of Avondale or the water company serving your area of interest.

There is no substitute for doing your own research. Google is your friend.

Phoenix Owner answered:
I moved from Chicago to Phoenix in 2006. It is a change. After the first 1-2 summers you get use to it. I have bad arthritis in my wrist from an auto accident, it essentially vanished when I moved here. Other then 3-4 months of heat in summer, you couldn't ask for more perfect weather. I am not familiar with Fountain Hills, but I hear it is a great area for people with a family. The only negative I think you will experience is your first 1-2 summers. After a year you will be so use to wearing shorts all the time and basking in the 80-90 degree weather 8 months out of the year you won't ever want to return to Illinois. The sun shines so much here, I think 310-320 days of the year, that when it does rain you are thrilled! All I can say is if you decide to do it, bring lots of sunscreen and make sure you have a couple back up pairs of sunglasses. ... more

Chris & Michelle Spalding answered:
Hi there!

Glendale is a very diverse city with a lot to choose from in the way of subdivisions, homes and price ranges. The particular zip code you are asking about is an older part of the city where carports are far more common than garages, although several people have converted existing carports.

I checked MLS and there are 6 rental listings that have 4 bedroom and 2 bathrooms that range between $750-$1000 and only 2 that have a garage. There are several other zip codes in the Glendale area that also have rental homes in that price range.

Hope this helps!

No Realtor will give you that answer. They will tell you to do your due diligence when looking for a home to buy or rent. Simple reason is defining the word "safe" in the eyes of one is different in another. A Realtor cannot by law direct you to a specific area to live, that is your decision. If you need some help with your home search please contact me for assistance or visit my website to start your personal search. Good Luck!!

Dori Wittrig Sonoran Lifestyle answered:
Hi Jerome...quite the opposite! It is said that everything is "relevant" and that certainly applies here! When you live in Fountain Hills or the Valley of the Sun full time, you acclimate to the range of temperatures that are, in the extreme, 25 degrees to 110 different than the range in many northern states that may go from minus10 degrees to 95 degrees. In addition, low desert humidity provides for a more comfortable heat index. I'm from the northwest, and an 85 degree day there is less comfortable for me than a 100 degree day here. Yes, we have air conditioning and it helps us to be more comfortable, but you'll find that desert dwellers love the summer heat, when the mornings and evenings are glorious--at least until August when humidity is higher. Like to golf? Long distance runner? You'll see these and many other athletic pursuits enjoyed in the middle of the day and we love it! And...we don't have to shovel it! ... more

Ahwatukee! It's only 10 minutes from the airport. The schools are in Kyrene School District, which is the highest ranked district in the state. Nestled next to South Mountain for tons of outdoor hiking/mountain biking. Mountain Park Ranch is an national award-winning master-planned development.
Warmest Regards,

Your best bet at this point would be to talk to an attorney about settling your credit card debts. Often this can be done for a fraction of the debt owed. See the link for legal assistance for low income residents of Arizona.

Not quite sure what you're asking exactly. The best way to get a clear answer is to talk to a real estate professional. If you need a referral, let me know!
