Considering relocating back to PHX. If it works out, work will be in the Biltmore area. We used to live in the Camelback Corridor and loved the area and proximity. We'll probably focus our home search closer in but I am amazed at the prices I see online (not sure if valid due to the number of foreclosures), especially in areas far out like Queen Creek. What is this area like? And, what sort of commute is this to central PHX?

The commute from Queen Creek would be at least an hour, maybe more. Try to look at something closer to Biltmore. Its cheap in QC cause its not close to anything.

I wouldn't suggest it, you would get sick of the commute very quickly, stop and go traffic gets old quick.

The prices are cheap for a reason, you're far away from everything.

I have to agree with the previous comments. South east Gilbert is quite nice, but traffic really backs up once you get out to queen creek. There just aren't enough roads out there.

Some parts of QC (city proper) are closer in than some parts of Gilbert. I think it really depends on the specific neighborhood and where you are commuting to. Any area you consider try driving at different times. I wouldn't exclude QC just because it's QC and not Gilbert -- but look at the commute, amenities for YOUR specific case and decide. Saying that, a lot of the crazy good deals are QC addresses but not in the city (instead are in Pinal county) -- that is WAY far out for PHX commute.
