I'll have to live in Phoenix for a year or two before I decide if I want to live there long-term. My heart really is in Dallas, and I was told by the people that run this company that I needed to be in Tempe for 1-2 years to learn everything but then can likely work remotely. I'm willing to give it a shot as a permanent home, but it's more of a wait-and-see thing. If I feel like I'll live there a long time, I'll definitely look to buy something. And heck, Phoenix is one of the few places I'd consider buying a real house because I hate hate hate yardwork, and desert years are much easier on me than grass.

Renting a house (or ideally a townhouse) is definitely an option, though I am a bit nervous about walking into that without being able to really see it until a week before moving in. I have relatives in the area that I can send out to see a house if you know of one. Craigslist is so cluttered with apartment spam that I've found it very difficult to pull out the real rental listings.

ETA: And it's not the budget part of traveling that concerns me. It's the morning commute and getting to the office on time. I am absolutely, 100 percent not a morning person and leaving a job where I can sleep to my heart's content. This new job is 8-5, so I'm trying to try minimize the shock in terms of how early I have to get up.
