    Renter's guide to Tempe, AZ

    Tempe, Arizona welcomes you with open arms! This city is much more than just a suburb of Phoenix; Home to Arizona State University, Tempe made Forbes’ 2015 list of best cities for millennials, as well as WalletHub’s ranking of best city for singles, where it ranked 3rd – making it a great choice for young adults.

    Named for a valley in Greece, Tempe is a relatively young city. It was officially incorporated in 1894 and was once known as Hayden’s Ferry. Originally a farming community, agriculture is still an important component, but the city has grown by leaps and bounds into a modern center of education and business for both Maricopa County and the state.

    As of 2016, Tempe is the sixth largest city in Arizona and about a ninth the size of neighboring Phoenix. Compared to other Arizona cities, Tempe is about 30% the size of both Tucson and Mesa, 70% of Scottsdale, and three times larger than Flagstaff. This size allows it to offer all the conveniences and benefits of a large city, without the problems that stem from overcrowding. 

    Tempe is located approximately 10 miles from Phoenix and six miles from Scottsdale. Chandler, AZ is 15 miles from Tempe. The distance between Albuquerque and Tempe is 415 miles, while Los Angeles is 380 miles from Tempe.

    Tempe has a desert climate with hot, dry weather. Summer highs easily exceed 100ºF and even the lows in January rarely drop below freezing. Rain is usually scarce, almost never reaching 2 inches in any month. Sun enthusiasts will love the warm environment and clear skies.

    Tempe’s climate lacks a true autumn, with winter occurring November through February, spring in March through May, with the remaining months consisting of summer.  Dust storms are something to watch out for, particularly during July and August.

    Tips for renting in Tempe, AZ

    When you rent in Arizona, you’ll find that the city offers renters a decent amount of rights. For instance, landlords are required to inform tenants of all parties authorized to enter the residence, of what their security deposit covers, and to provide information on bedbugs. You also have the right to withhold rent payments if the landlord hasn’t fixed certain critical problems, such as broken heaters.

     

    Additionally, landlords in Arizona must give their renters 30 days notice before raising the cost of rent and five days notice before beginning eviction for late rent. Finally, Arizona law limits the amount of security deposits to one and a half times the monthly rent cost.
