Bisbee residents will be the first to say how much they love living in their city. However, they will also be quick to add that housing in their lovely, quaint, historic city is quickly becoming unaffordable and options are disappearing.

Nestled in southern Arizona’s Mule Mountains, Bisbee has quickly become a tourist attraction and was voted USA TODAY’s best historic small town in 2016.

As word got out over the years about Bisbee’s fun and open-minded atmosphere and its distance from the bustle of big city life, people began to settle in Bisbee.

However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Bisbee’s housing market erupted with house prices soaring and rental prices increasing. Since then, housing options have almost disappeared as people from out-of-town flushed with cash purchased houses there.
