Moving vans are pulling in to Marana all the time. The Town’s population grew by almost 10 percent between the 2010 Census and the end of 2012. The Town led the entire region in single family residence building permits issued last year.
Now, Nerd Wallet is making it official: Marana is one of the best places in Arizona to own a home.
The consumer advocacy web site analyzed data related to affordability, population growth and homeownership rates to place Marana seventh among 64 communities surveyed. Two other places in Pima County — Sahuarita and Green Valley — also made the top 10.
With home builders continuing to put down their stakes here and retail developers keeping pace, it’s a pretty solid bet Marana will be on this list again next year.
