With some jobs staying remote post-COVID, moving to a more rural area is now possible for more Arizonans. 

Arizona is experiencing a housing shortage, making the market much more competitive than usual, especially in its largest cities. 

But with the COVID-19 pandemic keeping many workers remote, some Arizonans are broadening their horizons when it comes to finding a place to live. 

And when it comes to doing more from home—another bedroom for an office sounds like a good idea. 

Here are some houses that are over 2,000 square feet and listed on Zillow for under $300,000, as of Sept. 9:
