Natalie and I spent most of our afternoon driving around Glendale/North Phoenix looking for a place to live once Natalie starts PA school. Let me tell ya, there are some very scary parts of Phoenix that you probably shouldn't drive through, let alone try and have a home. A couple of condos we looked at could have been scenes of violent crime for all we know. Yikes.
We found a couple of places that we really liked, but everything is so far away! We liked a condo on 7th street and Beardsley, an apartment on 43rd ave and Union Hills, and a townhouse on 35th ave and Union Hills. But if anybody knows of cheap housing in the northwest Valley, please please let us know! We could use all the help we can get.
