All About Happy Jack, Arizona

Happy Jack, Arizona is an unincorporated area situated in the Mogollon Rim Region of Coconino County in Central Arizona. Perched at an elevation of about 6700 to 7000 feet above sea level, the area is a popular summer resort area for residents of nearby Phoenix who are looking to escape the desert’s triple-digit heat. Summer highs in the mountains in and around Happy Jack, Arizona typically are between 70 and 95 degrees.

HOME INSPECTORS: I can’t stress enough how important it is to hire a Home Inspector during your inspection period. To help ensure that you receive a qualified inspection, I recommend that you ask your inspector the following seven questions: 1) How long have you been an inspector; 2) what qualification do you have as an inspector; 3) are you insured; 4) can you provide references; 5) What does your inspection cover; 6) How much do you charge; 7) may I be present at the inspection?
