Hi! I will be moving to the Catalina Foothills area of Tucson soon and am looking for a good neighborhood to rent in. I have found several apartment complexes at the intersection of E Sunrise and N Swan, as well as one at E Skyline and N Swan. Are these good areas to live in? My experience with large apartment complexes has been lots of noise and a fair amount of theft, and quite a few section 8 tenants (some who are working to better themselves and some who aren't and just cause problems.) What will living in those areas be like? I am limited to about $600/mo rent, so no country club living for me!

If anyone could give me some tips on where to look for apartments in the foothills area, I would greatly appreciate it!

I have not been in Tucson for over 7 years, though used to live in the area of the foothills known as Catalina 10 off Hacienda Del Sol. If you are living near Swan & Sunrise, you will know Hacienda Del Sol very quickly. Anyways, I really like the Swan & Sunrise area as we used to shop a lot there at the Safeway and actually hang out at the Valero gas station for reasons I don't remember!!

Just know the foothills in general is in my opinion, the nicest area of Tucson overall. Many million dollar homes nearby, so I would think you can't really go wrong. That said, don't take my word for it though as I have never lived in any apartments outside UofA and River Rd areas. Also the economy in Tucson fell off a cliff in 2006-2007 when the beyond insane real estate market fell apart. Lot of people from the foothills probably moving into the nearby apartments and going on welfare as the major industries are limited to Raytheon, UofA and the gov. Pay is cheap & Tucson is not recovering well like other areas.

If you have any other questions let me know as I am having some fun right now just relearning Tucson as I am hoping to move back by years end.

are you finding apartments in that areas for $600??.....entirely fine area, but do the usual "due diligence" and make sure the complex you choose is well-run, well-maintained., etc....visit at night and on weekends and see what the vibe is....does it have a good "feel"?....
