The state of Arizona is one of contrasts. For a budget of $1,500, half of the cities offer more than the national average of 782 square feet and half offer less.
Here are the details:
• In Arizona, renters get the best bang for their buck in Tucson. Not only does it offer more than 900 square feet, but it’s the only city where you can get a three-bedroom apartment for that amount. The average rent in Tucson is $1,239 for an average size apartment of 762 square feet.
