Hello,

I'm in MN because my sister is here.

I want to move to Prescott. I need to know more.

How are the seasons? How is the economy?

What is the difference between Prescott Valley and Prescott?

Any good apartments or condos to rent?

Do you know anything about clerical work?
I heard there is a food shortage; someone
said there isn't a problem in Prescott.

Thanks,

Harriet

I would highly suggest obtaining a job prior to moving here. We have had two tenants recently who had savings to cushion their wait for entry into the job market. Both tenants were unable to find employment and are moving back to where they came from.

If you do find a job, and you do move here, I am sure that you will be able to find something to eat.

Not only is there not a food shortage here, the offerings are, in some ways, better than some other large metropolitan areas.

for just one example, check Craigslist for "eggs". Once you buy local eggs, you will never go back to store eggs.

Just to let you know, I sold Prescott Valley lots back in late 60's for $995, $10 down and $10 a month. Couldn't even sell enough to cover mailing expenses back then.

Of course, that was when there were no paved roads, no sewer system, and no businesses. Interestingly enough, if you figure that prices double about every ten years, then your $995 lots in 1960 would be $32,000 today, which is about right.

Everyone keeps saying that "jobs" are scarce here... We're talking "career" jobs, right? There are plenty of retail, clerical type things available between Prescott and PV, no?

I'm not sure, but I had a tenant who was not able to find a retail job. I'm not sure what position he was looking for though. Walmart in PV is supposed to be hiring 300 people. There is also a Sprouts grocery store that will be moving in next to Dick's sporting goods.

Those were the good old days. I remember one lot we bought in Prescott (Prescott Heights). It had a gorgeous view. 1/2 acre. We paid $5,000.00.

Yeah, but didn't you earn about $5,000 per year then as well?
