Many would-be-Tucson prime Foothills area buyers who usually buy in the 85718 or 85750 zip codes should take a look at Oro Valley. The backdrop may offer incedible views of the Pusch Ridge of the Santa Catalina Mountains at a much more affordable price. Depending on where you live in Oro Valley, it could take only 20 minutes to visit the prime shopping and restaurant areas of the Tucson Foothills. This is an especially good alternative for retirees that do not have to worry about a commute to work. Northwest Hospital is a new state-of-the art facility and is right there on Tangerine Rd. Why not enjoy the beauty of the Foothills at a more affordable price?
