If the OP's job is western Mesa then eastern Tempe would be the best option for a living location.

Might look at some rental units east and south of ASU, I'm sure there are a lot to choose from.

I live off of 48th and Baseline (Tempe side) I currently live in a house/condo for $800 with 3 bedrooms. Not sure if all owners will be renting this cheap though. I'm a hop-skip and a jump to the 10, so access to the rest of the valley is good. The neighborhood is only ok though, (not great) my car radio was stolen a few weeks back. Otherwise, its not too bad. This location maybe too close to south Phoenix for some, but the crime is primarily limited to thefts. Just putting it out there.

I live near Mill and Southern a couple miles from ASU and you can't tell that its near. I never hear loud parties and its a middle class neighborhood so you see a lot of fmailies.

We went driving around Tempe yesterday just scoping out some areas. It's looking like we may also consider renting a small house. That is just harder to set up ahead of time. Are there any free rental agencies that anyone would recommend?

Also I did actually get a chance to drive past The Vale apartments and I really didn't consider the surrounding area to be a bad neighborhood. I'll make sure to check back in when we have some solid prospects =) Thanks for all the help so far everyone!

I too am relocating to Tempe or Scottsdale areas - not college oriented but a more laid back lifestyle.

Just spoke with Little Cottonwood central call center (no local number available - only 1-800 # who will have onsite personnel call me back). The rental rate is base per floorplan. The property bills the tenant additionally each month the water, sewer and garbage - these are NOT included. Also tenant pays seperately electric (SRP) and internet/cable/phone (Cox) - billed to tenant by provider. Some of the 2BR and 3BR units have garages, which are included in the base floorplan price, however... the garages are detached and away from your apartment so you must walk from the garage building to your apartment, not a problem, just letting you know that info. I think overall it could be a nice place to live in Tempe but once the utilities are added on top of the rental amount it could be more expensive than other properties who do include water, sewer, garbage and even some that include internet/wifi.

If anyone has any ideas on other properties that have some utilities included, that would be very helpful!

Thank you! : )
