We have had clients purchase here with allergies and respiratory problems and they just used air purifiers in the home to give them a rest from any pollen or allergens that might otherwise bother them. You would do best on the outskirts of the city were the air is clearer and of course I would suggest using air purifiers. We get occasional dust storms and you would want to avoid being outside during one. Normally after the dust storm the air is okay, but occasionally like today (we had one last night) you can see the air is not clear yet.
We moved here for the weather. It is mostly sunny and even in our monsoon season it is mostly sunny. It gets hot in the summer but we still sit outside during the evening and really enjoy it. Early mornings are nice as well. If you like to swim then you can spend more time outside during the day, but most everything has air-conditioning here so it is not bad. We are in the heat a lot while showing homes and although hot, I still love it here. We moved here from Illinois and the humidity made the heat there worse (in my opinion of course). When the temps are below 105 degrees it is nice as they get over 110 degrees in the summer months it is hot. The rest of the year is wonderful.
I would suggest the east valley as there is a nuclear power plant out toward Tonopah, which is west of Buckeye. There is a lot of growth east of Gilbert and should prove to be a good investment.
If you need further information, please don't hesitate to call!
