Scottsdale is known across the country as a luxury community. When most people think of Scottsdale AZ they envision luxury homes and condos, often on golf courses. Scottsdale is truly a luxury lifestyle to be enjoyed.
Although prices in Scottsdale are higher than many cities, they are significantly less than most resort or luxury communities. It is a bargain compared to many resort cities in Florida, California and Colorado. That is another reason Scottsdale is so popular. You can enjoy a golf home in Scottsdale for the fraction of something similar in another locale.
Scottsdale home prices are well below where they were several years ago. The market is however changing fast. The Scottsdale real estate market hit bottom at the end of 2011 and has been rising slowly since then. Prices are up 22% in the past 12 months, but we are still approximately 30-40% below where we were in 2006. Check out the charts and graphs on our Scottsdale real estate trends page for more information.
Many people will say: Why buy now? Well to be brutally blunt, the longer you wait the more you will pay. As prices increase, you simply pay more and more with time. Interest rates are also at historical lows. It is the perfect time to get the deal of a lifetime. It is very likely that the home you want will no longer be in your price range one year from now.
Does it make a difference of which Realtor you choose when you are searching for your new home? It certainly does. As an experienced agent who has lived and worked in North Scottsdale for many years, I can tell you that I see inexperienced agents making mistakes in transactions all the time. You need an agent who understands all of the contracts involved and the particularities of each community. Purchasing a home is one of the largest purchases you will make. You need an agent who is experienced and knowledgeable about Scottsdale. A good agent will also look out for your best interests and be frank about the pros and cons of certain homes and communities. I have worked in every community in North Scottsdale. For example, I can give you expert advice whether you are looking at Troon North homes or an affordable condo in Grayhawk.
