    West Texas is more like Arizona where central and east Texas is more like the south.

    Sorry for the delayed response. My first thought would be East Valley (i.e., Apache Junction, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Queen Creek, and Tempe). The further out you get from central Phoenix, the better chance you will have at owning a lot that will more spaced out from your neighbors. There are some old "horse properties" that can be found more in the city-center, but those come with a hefty price tag as you can imagine. Send me a PM if you want to get even more detailed than that.

    This is good advice... We live in Gilbert. It's pricey but way nicer than Sahuarita which is where we used to live (my opinion). Warning, they are building a ton of huge apartment complexes here that look like prisons. California is coming.
    The Sonoita area gets my vote as the best place to live, if you can afford it.

    Good luck with your planned move. The best thing I ever did was move out of WA to WY. Love it here more than I can say.

    Do it.

    I have lived all over the United States while active duty for 20 years and I lived in both blue and red states and for me and my experiences, Alaska and Arizona along with Utah are the best states in the Union. No other states come close.

    Thank you guys for all of your advice. Unfortunately our plans to move have been postponed due to unforseen circumstances. We are still planning to go ahead with a move later this year.

    I love northern Arizona. I spent many weekends as a kid camping in those pine forests.

    Hi. Long term resident of AZ here.
    Up North or South is where you can find decent chunks of land at good prices.
    I don't sell land or have any connection to anything listed, BTW.
