Still got a fair amount of time, we got a short haired shepherd and keep him shaved and we are very careful of when he goes out early morning late nights. We found a place out by the mountains. It's nice but not where I plan keep roots.

I obviously have realized water is a huge aspect but other than that...thanks.
When my wife and I made the decision to move to Arizona in 1991, 29 years ago, Yuma was on our short list. This was of course before Mexico turned into the massive, dangerous toilet bowl it has now become.

It was enjoyable back then to take the short drive down to San Luis, walk across the border and take in all the shops. Now you have to be crazy to even consider setting foot in that hell hole. I'm so glad we chose Lake Havasu City over Yuma!

If your heart is set on Yuma, stick with the Fortuna Foothills area, just east of Yuma itself. It's predominately white retired people. Much more affluent, nicer, and safer. And while the homes are more expensive, they are far more desirable..... And sellable.

But it still doesn't compare to Lake Havasu. Home prices in Lake Havasu are appreciating MUCH faster. And it is a far more desirable town all around. It's over 98% white, and Mohave county is one of the most Republican counties in the entire state. Trump 2020 flags are flying everywhere here.

The lake itself is beautiful. And with a current population of just north of 53,000, it still has that small town living appeal to it. But yet it has all the big box stores and conveniences you could want or need. Good doctors and medical facilities. Plenty of shopping. Name it. You are only 60 miles from Bullhead / Laughlin. And 2-1/2 hours to Vegas. And about 3-1/2 to Phoenix.

I'm not saying Yuma is a "bad" town. But with all of the border problems that are going on in this country, I would give very careful consideration to living and owning property anywhere near it. There is close to 145 miles of hot and uninhabitable desert between the Mexican border and Lake Havasu City. And that suits me right down to the ground.
