Looking to relocate in the Spring of 2007. What are the best school districts and neighborhoods with nice friendly families. Are there any good dog parks and worry about my dog in the heat. My price range for a home is up to 425k. Thank you.

There are so many good areas for your price range...

Scottsdale, Arrowhead Ranch, Chandler, Gilbert, north Phoenix, central corridor (phx)... To be more specific you would have to come out here for a week or two and drive around and check it out. This area is HUGE!!

You need to know where you are going to work before you go looking for a home. You absolutely, positively, do NOT want to have to drive across the city to get to your job. Quality of live here is closely related to the length of your commute. Don't worry about it, there are good neighborhoods in all quadrants for the money you are talking about.

Default Suburbs..

Definitely helps if you know where you are working. Freeways aren't bad during non-peak hours most places, so if your work is flexible about your work hours, it isn't bad either - or if you can use the I-60 and I-10 carpool lanes.

Plenty of great places to live. Gilbert, S.Chandler, NE Mesa, Tempe, Peoria all fit your budget and have good schools. Gilbert's schools are currently rated the highest, but if you're working in the west valley, I'd choose Peoria. I'm an AZ native who has lived out of state for 7 or so years as well.

If you choose the east valley, we're selling our Gilbert home for $330k, float me an email at alan.bruce@gmail.com if you'd like some pics. 10000 sq' lot, built in 2001, near one of the highest rated elementary schools in the Valley (Carol Rae Ranch).

Good luck! Make sure you choose a good area, as it makes or breaks your experience here.
