Hi Pj. I know this thread is older, but I thought I'd chime in and give my two cents, in case you haven't purchased yet and are still looking for opinions. I've lived in Pearce for the past year and a half and I absolutely love it. I am near the village of Sunsites, which has been a very friendly and welcoming community. There is a medical clinic, dental office, mechanic, library, hardware store, etc. No hospital, but it's only about a 25 minute drive to the hospital in Willcox from where I'm at. We are at about 4100ft. Distance-wise, I am situated fairly equally between Tucson and Sierra Vista (1 hr 15 min to each), but I always end up going to Tucson for major shopping, etc. I don't know why, I've just always felt more comfortable in Tucson.
I agree with Kim about Portal. Awesome location, but you will pay a little more. Not close to major services in Arizona, but it's right on the border of NM, so that's probably where everyone goes.
