Well as luck would have it my wife and I may be moving to Globe, Arizona. But I need help knowing what neighborhoods to look at in terms of finding a home for rent. We are looking to spend between $900 to $1200 for rent and are looking for a safe and quiet neighborhood. Any suggestions as to where to live and where to look for potential rentals?

Thank you.

Globe is a small mining town about 90 miles east of the Phoenix. I've been there a couple of times and there isn't much there at all and you're not going to have a variety of neighborhoods to choose from. You're going to have to take what you can get. I'm sure someone who's more familiar with Globe will chime in.

There are not really any neighborhoods to Globe. It is pretty mixed. Mostly old, and few rentals available.

There are hardly any rentals. It's an old mining town with multigenerational residents who won't sell their homes usually worth between 25-50K. Miami and Globe do have a few homes for sale in that price range. The problem is the homes are close to 100 years old and many have well under 1000 sq feet.

On the positive. The scenery is very nice and at 3500 ft, you get a little snow in the winter and temps usually no hotter than 105 in the middle of summer. I enjoy DeMarco's Italian Restaurant for one of the better spots in AZ for food when I am passing through.

Basically a one horse community with the strip malls in between Miami and Globe (Walmart,etc) on Rte 60 near the intersection that goes up to Roosevelt Lake. Downtown a few dingy bars and antique shops.

There are also newer, $500k homes in Globe like this one too.

I have nothing against Globe and actually like the area for a few good restaurants and lovely views of the Pinal Mts. Along the main drag from Miami through Claypool into Downtown Globe, one sees old mines and 100 year old homes predominately. The McMansions must be on the hillsides outside of town. Regardless, I wish that area as well as Superior well. I like the mom and pop shops that take pride in ownership that are prevalent in such areas outside of the stretch of chains on Rte 60 west of Globe.

I did in 2006. Been through several times in the last two or three years . June the last time. Not a lot of change.

Not negative here. I love the area. Just don't want to tell someone there are a lot of rentals like they may be expecting, when I know there is not.
