    I want to move to the area too, but to be honest, the current prices are simply beyond what I’m able to pay. Does much of Prescott also apply to the surrounding area? Any locales to avoid? Places like Congress, Paulden, Dewey are more in my price range. Fortunately, I don’t need a big house, but I do prefer rural with 2 acres or more.

    If at all possible Id make a visit and get a feel. You cant replace driving around and experiencing everything in a 3D environ. We done a family vacay in Sedona and visited two different days. Ate at a diner, walked around the Costco, ate at the Palace. You get a granular feel for places that way. If you are new to the west or from the east where everything is pretty close it will be an adjustment. Things tend to be pretty far apart and takes some driving.

    Everything everywhere (not just Prescott or even AZ) is waaay over priced after the Dems crashed the economy with all their free COVID money and everybody just thought they could zoom work for the rest of their life. I think, between the cost of building materials going down and more employers pulling back some from telework since the pandemic, things will fall even more. We are still pretty far from the bottom Im afraid.

    My suspicion is when the bubble pops, it'll be uneven and affect blue states more which have lost wealth and productivity (due to migration out of state).


    Completely agree with the raging inflation the left unleashed. Housing prices have shot up but the Prescott area was going up before and there's a lot of conservatives moving in.


    The recent leftist scams (defund the police, rona, election theft, and along with their usual agenda) got to a point where a lot of productive conservatives gave the finger to their blue state and said "fuck it, I'm done living here". Myself included.


    With that said, the Prescott area is pretty nice. Trump has visited the area twice and antifa was driven out (if they decide to visit again they might just not make it out this time). Excellent selling points for a conservative looking for a new home. Yes housing in the area might slow down or dip some but I doubt as much in other areas. Also I'd say stagflation is a very real possibility.


    If anything, now might be a good time to move and buy here. With the whole abortion ban in AZ, leftist are moving out (increased supply). I also noticed a smaller spike in sales after AZ did some stuff against minor tranny surgery or something.


    Still relatively new to the area but even the "bad" areas I've seen in Prescott/Prescott Valley are pretty tame.

    I will say this for AZ, and it is the same for most of the west basically. There is a fine line between living on the edge of town or "nearby" and living like cousin Eddie in Vegas Vacation. Id choose nearer.
