I will post a copy of this in the Hometown Forums.

Are there ANY of you that hear about towns near Prescott that say "Eww... I would rather not live there" and why? Crime? Whitetrash?

Just curious.

Example. Here in CA, if you were to move to Riverside and say "I am moving to Fontana," we would say "Do you HAVE to?"

The area is hit and miss with good areas right next to bad.

Rediculous as in how? More expensive or less?

Exactly, for what we paid for our North Scottsdale house we could get one about 5,000 square feet up there. Cheap place to live.

Bad areas as in crime? poverty?
Sorry for the 1000 questions guys. Just considering breaking out of this liberal jail cell called CA and looking for more Pro-gun, Conservative areas that would rather have me.

Crime in rural AZ isn't bad as long as you avoid the Mexican Border and the Reservations.

I've lived in Prescott since 1978.

I had a new house built 8 years ago, 3BR, 2bath, 2 car garage, 1550Sq Ft - 163K.

IMO, there is crime anywhere you go but I don't think it's terribly bad here. Maybe one murder a year (usually domestic), typical burglaries. When I first moved here I never locked my front door however I do now...

Prescott Valley (to the South) and Chino Valley (to the North) are both about 18 miles from prescott.
Chino Valley is a small town mostly ranch/cowboy type - I'm not going to say mobile home city, but.... Chino Valley would be my last choice.
Prescott Valley is about half the size of Prescott but is growing rapidly, real estate there is much less than in Prescott.

Prescott by far would be the prefered place to live but it does cost more - it's also the prettiest place to live.

Good paying jobs are very scarce. It's mostly a retirement town.

I love it here and wouldn't want to move anywhere else!
