Why Tucson?

Thinking about health? Thinking about lifestyle?  Think about cool, dry desert air and winter sun in Tucson, Arizona.  Located in the high Sonora Desert, the sun shines 360 days a year here.  The natural beauty of the desert and mountains and the small town feeling of this growing city create a perfect place for both retirement and vacation homes.  As is typical in the Southwest US, multiple cultures, Mexican, Spanish, Indian and Anglo, blend into a unique ambiance.  The comfortable weather attracts major golf tournaments on courses by leading golf course designers, with an increasing number of spas to meet the growing demand.   Second home buyers have several options, including gated resort communities and still affordable, buildable land sites where custom or prefab homes can be constructed reasonably quickly.  With 35% of housing used as rentals, and a very low vacancy rate, it’s a great investment for a second home that you can rent out for extra income.  Compared to its neighbors, Phoenix and Scottsdale, Tucson is cooler, drier and much more easy going. According to an MSN ranking, based on cost of living, crime rate, education, home prices and weather, Tucson rated fifth out of 331 best places in America to live.
