I know home prices are rapidly escalating. Totally unfamiliar with Tucson. Please, if you can, advice on the safest areas of Tucson maintaining areas with lower to moderate home prices while yet remaining in what would be considered safe areas.

What can you tell me about the area Western Hills located near Willis Blake Community Park?

If possible, look just outside the city limits of Tucson in Pima County. Which actually is quite a bit of what people think is Tucson. The sheriff's department does a much better job of law enforcement.

Personally I wouldn't want to live anywhere near that area of Western Hills.

Where you plan to work will narrow down what corner of the large valley area to start looking in.

Work is flexible, just trying to find safe areas in the lower moderate price range which I know is difficult. Thanks for heads up on western hills.

Tucson is unlike many other cities in that there are not any generally uniform areas that are safe. There is no bull's eye of crime and low income house in the center that progressively gets better as you move outwards. Not uncommon to see a $400,000 house a few blocks away from sketchy low income trailer parks or apartments and then a few blocks later it's back to a good neighborhood.

If I wanted to be in a lower income, blue collar-ish neighborhood that is generally safe I would myself pick the areas around Ina & Thornydale. Close to shopping, not too gritty and a pick up truck in every driveway. The housing stock is going to be older, think late 70's and 80's era homes.

Believe it or not, in Midtown/Central Tucson there are modern, safe, gated communities, mixed in with the old.
