Born and raised in Flagstaff. Moved away while in the military and couldn't afford to stay when I returned. The housing prices are ridiculous. The town centers around the University and the downtown area. City cares about this area and nothing else. Unless of course the else is an industry that wants to bring more jobs or expand. Then the answer is NO! I miss the forest, trails and proximity to Sedona.Bottom line is Flagstaff is for the following people type:Wealthy second home owners or retirees. College Students on mom and dad's dime.Hippies who can't handle the rain in Portland and enjoy poverty.Flagstaff is not for those looking to find affordable housing with costs relative to income. I never thought the crime rate to be that bad but as a long time resident I may have been able to look past it.The weather is pretty awesome with all four seasons. Can be very windy is some areas. Look at the trees before you buy a house.

Flagstaff single sceen for adultsHi, I'm 49, single and no kids.
