Hey I posted awhile back about my fiancé and I moving to the Phoenix area. It still looks like we are planning for the beginning of October and have a general area we have picked out but I wanted to ask questions about it before we put that as our exact location.

How is the centralized area North of 10 between 17 and 51 and south of Northern Ave??

We chose this area because I am moving to relocate for work but I also don't plan on being at the company for long after I arrive. It is basically to have a job so I have income when I arrive. I feel its the perfect distance between many different business sectors (less commuting time) but I wasn't sure how the crime rate is or how the area is as a whole.

Any information on this area or anything else you think we should know good or bad would be appreciated! Thanks!

Not sure about that specific area but I can say Northern Ave is a very nice road especially as you get further East towards the 51. And there is major hiking trails nearby in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve.

That's a huge area you mentioned and there run the full gauntlet of crap neighborhoods to wealthy neighborhoods all within those boundaries.

Having said that, feel free to ask about specific areas within the boundaries you mentioned or you could just tell us about what kind of housing you want and what your budget is and we could try to guide you that way.

Mmmm I guess we don't have specifics in that area. We are looking for cheap 1 bed 1 bath just until we can have the opportunity to search in person for a house to buy. We are hoping from 600-750 range which I know isn't much but I did see tons on zillow rentals.

That's way too big an area for anyone to give you specifics. Very generally speaking, the further north and east you go in that area, the better off you are. There are some suitable areas in other parts, but neighborhoods change quickly in some areas as you drive along. Whether you can hit your price range in that northeast quarter is another matter.

I'd say if you're just renting for now then go ahead and live anywhere in those boundaries. Nowhere in there is truly "unsafe", and if your not investing in real estate then it is far less important where you choose to live. Right off the top of my head there are a ton of apartments within your price range around 15th-19th Ave and Montebello-Bethany Home Rd. That honestly is a less "nice" area than some others within your boundaries, but it's just a suggestion that would fit your budget.

Honestly tho just rent anywhere you want for a little while, explore the area and find what area(s) you like for when you decide to buy.
