High crime and limited opportunities. Terrible summer weather - don't fall for the old "it's a dry heat" argument. The whole town is seasonal because everyone wants to leave by June due to the said "dry heat". The economy revolves around the gem show during the "winter". You will spend a fortune on alignments for your vehicle because the streets are in deplorable condition, and they just keep tearing up more desert to put down more roadways that they will not be able to maintain. Architecture here has no flavor whatsoever. Every home and business looks practically the same - sandy brown and adobe. Its also very difficult to avoid HOA neighborhoods. Property taxes are high for the quality of property you get here. Pima county levies an average of $1,614.00 (0.81% of median home value) yearly in property taxes! An over-priced home that looks exactly like everyone else's nestled in seas of sand, cactus and scrub and bathed in excessive summer heat? No thank you. I just don't see the appeal.Come here if you are retired and have boatloads of money. Otherwise, if you are still working you will spin your wheels and never get ahead because the cost of living is increasing pretty markedly. The primary industries here are healthcare/insurance and aerospace in manufacturing and quite a few call centers. Plenty of lousy hospitality jobs that depend on the influx of retirees and winter visitors. There is also a sad lack of professionalism here. Nobody cares. Education? They boast the stupid U of Arizona which is a sad disappointment if you enjoy college sports or wish for your college age children to get a degree that counts. The mountain views are wonderful for a little while, but once you realize what a mistake you made moving here, they just kinda of fade into the rabble of sand, prickly things and endless Mexican restaurants. Sure there are a few small bodies of water around, but they are full of that disgusting reclaimed water. Its a dead end here. Don't make the same mistake I did and move here and if you have kids and love them very much, look elsewhere to raise them.
