The cheapest place to live might be in Phoenix's Maryvale neighborhood where median house values are in the 30's.

I also think the cheapest place to live might be in Phoenix's Maryvale neighborhood.

I also think that Phoenix's Maryvale neighborhood is by far the most dangerous area in Arizona.

I would not move to Maryvale under any circumstances even if I was offered free rent or a free house.

I wouldn't move there either, and judging by the prices there most people agree with us.

There are lots of places in Az where you could find an inexpensive one bedroom. How good an area it's in, and what kind of shape the apt is in, will vary a lot. There's really no way to answer your question without knowing what else you need around you besides a cheap apartment.

What's with the maryvale hate? It's not good, but it's not THAT bad. Geez. But yeah- it's cheap right now. That or the Sundial area in El Mirage - super cheap, too.

South Tucson would be Maryvale's competition for the most dangerous neighborhood. If you like smaller cities there is Holbrook, Nogales, St John's, or Superior.

The only Arizona city on Forbe's "America's 100 Cheapest Places to Live" list is Yuma at #97. The list is from 2009, couldn't find a more recent one....
