I'm looking at an offer to relocate to Tucson, working at the Air Force Base there.
I'm wanting to know a decent area to live in. I prefer rural, but it's not a major desire.
I will only be working in Tucson Monday through Friday, and away on the weekends. It will only be myself, but I'd like to be in a moderately priced area.
It will depend on my per diem pay whether I rent or purchase. Since it will only be me, I'm not looking for a HUGE place, but still, would like something decent and low maintenance.
Not interested in apartments either.
Anyway, I guess what I'm asking is a good area with decent housing.
Thanks!

Look into zip codes 85730, 85747, 85748, 85710, 85711, and 85712. If you want more rural place - Vail could be for you (in 85747).

Considering DM is on the Southeast . . . decent affordable housing should not be a problem, especially if you plan to purchase.

From your list of needs, I would recommend a nice Patio Home in an established neighborhood requiring minimum upkeep and maintenance.

Welcome and Good Luck.

Vail is mostly zip code 85641. 85747 is mostly the surrounding areas, including Rita Ranch.

You're right. Sorry. Because usually we're lumped together in the housing reports, I totally spaced out Vail does have a different zip code.

I think the shared school district got me confused, too. God knows I watch 47 like a hawk (having bought a "falling knife" there at the beginning of the year...) and know darn well Vailís houses arenít in the search.
