  • Housing Statistics If you are interested in renting a home, it will cost you about $800 per month. Less than 31% of the residents rent homes. However, if you want to join the 69% of residents who own a home here, you're looking at an average cost of about $170,000. That's not too bad for an area that is one of the fastest growing cities in the nation. In fact, if you love warm weather and sunny skies, but want to avoid the high cost of living you'd find in California, Mesa is a great option. The vacancy rate is rather low at less than 5%. But in this growing city, it won't be too hard to find a home to buy, rent, or rent to own, since brand new homes and neighborhoods are still being built. You'd be in good company since there has been a 14% increase in the population of this city since 2000.
  • Largest Employers and Industries Mesa has seen tremendous growth in recent years. There are a number of large corporations that employ a great number of people. The largest include Mesa Public Schools, which employs 9,500 people, and Banner Health, which counts on its 8,650 employees to help operate several hospitals and clinics here. Other employers that have a few thousand employees each include Boeing, Wal-Mart, and Mesa Community College, which is the largest community college in Maricopa County. So if you have some skills in the education, health, retail, or aerospace fields, finding a job in Mesa should be possible.
  • Transportation and Commutes Since Mesa is so spread out, most residents prefer to drive their vehicles to around the city, which is common in Arizona. There are a number of freeways that can take you through Mesa and to the surrounding areas. The mostly commonly used freeways in and near Mesa include the US 60, Loop 101, and Loop 202. The city of Phoenix also features the Metro Light Rail system, which is a passenger train station that goes through much of Mesa, Tempe, Scottsdale, and other nearby areas. But one of the best things about many of the neighborhoods and the city in general is the ability to walk around. In fact, Mesa has been listed as one of the top 50 walkable cities in America, so if you love to walk, you will enjoy living here. Just make sure you avoid doing so during the summer, when temperatures easily surpass 100 degrees!
  • Neighborhood Guide Like many cities in the west, Mesa is spread out. The city is divided between East and West Mesa. Here are some examples of the neighborhoods you will find in this city.
