Traveling to Phoenix the Thursday before the Labor Day Weekend..... It's sort of a scouting trip as I potentially plan to relocate as soon as the house sells(fingers crossed). While I am there would love to look at some older neighbor hoods(Houses built in 60's, 70's, 80's).....that are not expensive...As I am a one income household......Can you guys recommend neighborhoods that would fit my bill, as well as recommend some events for the Labor Day holiday......Looking forward to it.

As it's still pretty warm here then, events in the Phoenix area for Labor Day are few in number.

As far as neighborhoods, you need to look at commuting distance, etc., and/or availability of public transit for the days you don't want to drive, or if you don't want to drive at all. There could be a lot of areas in the Valley that fit your bill, but we need a little more info.

If you go to this website called InPhoenix - it's some realtors I think - but it's actually really educational on all the districts of Phoenix. I was on it for hours last night looking at the Homes in the Historic District. There's a ton of little tiny areas - with a blurb on each one - about the achitecture - the era - say 'the 1920's' - who that block appeals to and why etc. Then you can check out the MLS offered in each district - some will have homes for sale - some won't. I was looking for under 150K - and found charming places on-line some with both pools and fireplaces... one had pink appliances - another had 11different bright colors of custom paint... Lawns -- etc... Very different than where I'm at in N. Scottsdale. So that is the OLDER houses closer to 'downtown' if there is such a thing. I found lots of mid-century homes for sale in South Scottsdale - again some interesting architecture... Good Luck!
