What to know about moving in Tucson

What’s the cost of living in Tucson?

On average, a Tucson resident pays only $1,330 a month for living costs like rent, food, and utilities.1 And while this isn’t the lowest living cost total we’ve seen, it’s pretty close, and it landed Tucson in tenth place on our list of cities where living costs are the lowest.

If you’re looking for an affordable new locale to put down roots or start a new chapter in your life, Tucson is a great option.

How high are home prices in Tucson?

Like its living costs for renters, Tucson’s home prices are pretty affordable. The city’s median home value was $184,100 in 2021,2 which wasn’t cheap enough to put it among the 10 best cities for first-time homebuyers, but still. Not too shabby.

That said, the city’s homes may not be so affordable too much longer. Between 2020 and 2021, the average price for a single-family home in Arizona increased by 22.7%.3 For context, this 2021 home pricing spike was one of the steepest in the country.

If the state’s housing market continues to inflate so quickly, Tucson may not be a realistic option for many people in the near future.

How hot is Tucson?

Much of Arizona—including Tucson—lies in the Sonoran Desert, so it gets pretty hot there. Average temperatures in Tucson range from 42°F to 102°F, though it can get as hot as 107°F.4 You don’t have to be a professional mover to know that moving in temperatures this hot can be miserable at best and dangerous at worst.

Avoid moving to or around Tucson between May and October if you can help it, as this is when the city gets hottest. Contrary to what you’d expect for most other US cities, late fall, winter, and early spring are the best times to move around Tucson.

If you simply must move in the summer, keep yourself and your moving crew well-hydrated to prevent heat exhaustion and avoid spending too much time in the sun.

Where can I donate household goods I don't want to move?

Here are the providers to contact to start your utility services in Tucson:
