Stay away from anything downtown or near Main street, up and down the map. Try out east Mesa, liberally past Gilbert. You should be ok. I would try to stay as close to Gilbert as possible. Hope that helps some, if you post an address we can let you know if it's decent or not.

Seriously just stay out of Mesa.

Is there a reason you can't move to Chandler or Gilbert?

Oh good grief--quit with the Mesa bashing. Chandler has one of the biggest gang problems in the state, so every city in Phoenix has its issues....Anything south of US 60 will be fine--typical middle class neighborhoods...Dobson ranch is a nice area---East Mesa has some lovely homes and even North East Mesa is good. I would stay away from downtown Mesa and anything between Southern and University between Dobson and Country Club. If you need a realtor, let me know.

Oknow west Mesa is a no-no; it has been for 30 years at least. Lots of gang-realted activity out there. But what is bad about the Red Mountain area?Is it also turning evil? that, and the area farther east over around Usery Pass used to be pretty nice. The reason I am asking is that we are moving back to the area at the end of July aftera good number of years living in Oregon. We are trying to choose between North Scottsdale/Cave Creek, and the Red Mountain area. The homes look similar, but are about $50,000 or so less expensive in the Red Mountain developments.

BTWGilbert and florence used to be much less desirable than Mesa. Have they undergone some sort of revitalization?

Not trying to steal or divert the thread, just trying to participate in a conversation with some actual meat to it that might help us all..

Thanks

You are right,, Oregon Canuck, East (Red Mountain and Las Sendas areas) and North Mesa have some gorgeous neighborhoods for a great deal less than the Cave Creek area. You can get more for your money in Mesa. Gilbert has changed into a very family oriented city and is quite nice. Florence has several new neighborhoods and has extremely low prices due to the distance it is from Phx.
