Out of Reach: This longtime Sunnyslope resident feels pushed out by rising rents

The Valley’s housing market is one of the hottest in the country right now, which is pushing prices higher and higher — both for prospective buyers and renters. And that means for a lot of residents, housing is out of reach, which is what The Show is calling our new project on housing.

Shannon Steward is a small-business owner; she owns the Vintage Arizona in Sunnyslope, which she opened three years ago, and is also a hairstylist. She grew up and rents an apartment in Sunnyslope, as well. But her rent is going up. By a lot. 

The Show spoke with her to learn about her experience.
