A huge portion of my clients are people from out of state in their mid-50’s who are buying a Scottsdale home in advance of retirement. This is an extremely savvy move on their part. They know that prices are rising in Scottsdale.
The news articles about the rise in Scottsdale real estate prices can be found everywhere. Phoenix-Scottsdale is one of the top 5 market in the country for price increases. These clients fully understand that they have to get their toes into the market now, to make sure they can afford a home here once they eventually retire. They plan to use the home for golf getaways, vacation and family gatherings prior to retirement.
Many people have a very specific price range of what they can spend on a vacation or retirement home. They have been saving and planning for retirement for decades and the budget is clearly set. The home you can afford today, may not be in your budget in 3-5 years. By buying now you can even lock in at historical low interest rates, if you choose to do so.
