My sister is relocating to Tempe very soon and she is looking to rent a condo or townhome. A house would be nice but she travels too much. Private would be great but a PM Co is fine too. She needs to find a place that will accept dogs. I want her to be in a safe community. Her job is in Tempe so she doesn't want more than a 15min drive to commute. What rentals companies should she stay away from?
I'm also looking for family friendly ideas for that area too for when we visit. Any AP groups (or any forums) that are online for the area?
Arizona is full of rentals. There aren't really good vs bad property mgnt companies as much as good vs bad properties in general. Its best to be here and tour the property and the general area before signing any lease. Phoenix can change in a block from 'safe' to 'not so safe'. We literally have mini mansions that back up to mobile homes.
Many private owner rentals will not accept pets. Condos and Townhomes are generally private owner rentals. Some are direct from the owner, some use a mgnt company.
Traffic in the Phoenix area is a nightmare. 15 minute commute can be 15 miles or 2 blocks. Honestly, its going to depend on what hours she is working and what route she travels. Public transportation is a joke most times.
Meetup.com has some local groups. Phoenix in general has tons of museums and kids activities (kids museum, zoo, science center etc)
Don't forget Tempe is home to Arizona State University, there is a ton of off campus housing for the University. Tempe can get super congested during certain times.
