Housing of all types has gotten pricier in Tucson since the COVID-19 pandemic. On the real estate market, home prices have gone up 50 percent in the past two years, while rents have gone up by a third.

“You’re seeing a lot of people who are coming in from out of state, from high-priced places like California,” said David Godlewski, president of the Tucson Homebuilders Association. He notes that remote work made the possibility of moving to places that are relatively cheaper by comparison real for many.
