I have seen a ton of posts on here saying the only place to live in Tucson is the NW area. What about the Civano area (E of Houghton, S of 22nd) over to Vail? We are looking to build in Vail or the new Civano community (Sierra Morado).

What are the pros/cons of that area?

I'd be living VERY close to work so the commute will not be an issue.

There's more of these folks on the forum and they're more vocal. I'll write some when I have time if nobody else does by then.

I think I just found your posts re: Vail. Thanks for posting those are good reads. We are leaning towards living in the SE side (Sierra Morado area) or out at Vail. We didn't like the Northwest side as much when we drove through it. Too much traffic and a bit more pretentious than we'd prefer. Don't get me wrong the wife loves the shopping up there but we are moving from Plano, Texas and would love to live in a simple, but nice, area with good, friendly neighbors.

I really like the idea of living near the Vail golf course. I could get used to that. I won't be retiring any time soon but love the game.

Personally, beowulf, except for the South and the Southwest, I feel there are positives and negatives for each area. The most important deciding factor would be the relationship to your employment because commuting can be a real bear.

Good Luck!

Beowulf77,

We live on the east side and love it, not as congested as the NW side is, even with the fabulous shopping. I'd take quiet over noise any time. Either development you mentioned is fine, as far as I know, Civano is pretty much developed and Sierra Morado has about 3-4 years more of developement before it's done. There's a closer golf course than the one at Rancho Del Lago, Fred Enke is about 3 miles away from Civano.

Have you thought about Sahuarita? It's about 15 minutes south of Tucson on I-19. Rancho Sahuarita is a master planned community that's very kid friendly. There's a waterpark at the clubhouse for the kids as well as a man made lake that's stocked for fishing.

Home prices range from the high 100's to the millions - there's about 5,000 homes here and it's projected to grow to about 15000 homes over the next 10 years.

I moved from West Tucson down here and absolutely love it.

But if you're set on the NW or SE, I would choose Vail or Rita Ranch over the NW side. Shopping, etc. isn't too bad of a drive from Vail to the East side. Vail is a bit more quite in my opinion.

I would continue to go south or east of the Civano community. I have heard those homes are severely overpriced.
