Base housing is also in the process of being privatized. Currently you will see some new and some old houses. One advice I read was that if you have maintenance issues NOT to call the privatizing company Balfour Beatty (http://www.lukefamilyhousing.com/defaultFamily.aspx?cid=14) but to call maintenance directly and early Work Order desk?Ǩ623-935-2676

Opinions whether it is cheaper on base or off base vary. If you live on base you will lose ALL your BAH. However, this will pay for your rent, utilities ( and that can run VERY high) and maintenance. So do your math before you decide. Also remember that if you live OFF base you will have higher commuting costs (gas and such)

Off Base:
Houses:
Rancho Gabriella in Surprise, AZ has been highly recommended as a great area to buy/rent a home. Avondale ?Ǩ?the good part of town?Ǩ has also been recommended Appartments: Desert Gardens 2 has been warmly recommended.
The housing market in Arizona has been pretty soft meaning you might be able to get a good deal on a house (maybe with pool?) if you are stationed there for a longer period of time.
