The rent in the City of Tucson has increased throughout the years as many more people move to the Old Pueblo.
Tucson has been a destination city for many people and many different reasons. Including, great weather, spectacular views, and affordable property.
Ginny Huffman, 2018 President of Tucson Association of Relators, says she has seen a trend that's changing. "Rental rates are starting to creep up in the Tucson area, and we've seen a lack of rental properties."

While people are moving to town many home builders are slowing down.
"It's supply and demand."
"Less activity in home buying and especially in investor purchases. Not a lot of investors right now - they're investing in other areas that aren't necessarily real estate," says Huffman.
Huffman says these are the effects of what happened nearly a decade ago.
"The recession hit and it affected the investor market heavily, " says Huffman. Adding, "because when things dropped in 2007 and 2008 a lot of the investors left."
Huffman says the city of Tucson and surrounding cities are trying to develop and grow their communities to be a place where you live, work and play.
