Scottsdale, AZ
Real Estate

I knew I wanted to find a vacation home in the Phoenix area, but I didn't know where to start. After reviewing several Realtors in the area I contacted Brian and I am so glad I did.

Real Estate in Scottsdale, Arizona

While Scottsdale is known for its luxury real estate; the real estate market is more diverse than that. There is a multitude of distinct neighborhoods in Scottsdale and each has its own unique features and character.

Scottsdale has four primary residential areas: South Scottsdale, Old Town, Central Scottsdale, and North Scottsdale.

South Scottsdale

South Scottsdale is considered the working-class or affordable portion of Scottsdale. The neighborhoods found here are older and well-established. In fact, some neighborhoods in South Scottsdale such as Villa Monterey, Village Grove, and Town and Country date back to the 1950s. Recently, Arizona State University opened the new Sky Song research center. This state-of-the-art research center has generated interest in the area among several international corporations. This interest, as well as an influx of new homeowners, will certainly benefit the area as a whole.

Old Town Scottsdale

Old Town Scottsdale

Old Town Scottsdale

Old Town Scottsdale is the heart of Scottsdale with a variety of nightspots, shops, restaurants, art galleries, and things to do. Here you can find traditional single-family homes, luxury homes, condos, and even high rise luxury condos with every amenity imaginable. Much of the new multi-family construction occurring in Scottsdale is in this district.

Central Scottsdale (The Shea Corridor)

Central Scottsdale is defined as the area around Shea Boulevard. Single-family homes in this area were primarily built in the 1970s, but given the relative affluence of the community, you won’t find any leftover shag carpet in these houses. Most have been routinely updated and renovated both in and out through the years. Property values in this community normally increase and have rebounded nicely since 2007.

This area is home to many highly-regarded neighborhoods such as Gainey Ranch and McCormick Ranch. In addition to the number of great homes in the area, you will also find many of Scottsdale’s famous resorts. That means that those that live here full time have access to many resort-quality amenities such as great golf courses.

North Scottsdale

North Scottsdale is both the least developed part of Scottsdale and its most exclusive – though the least developed part is changing at a rapid pace as developers move into the area. Here you will find many of the area’s multi-million-dollar estates. Homes for sale in North Scottsdale are primarily luxury properties that incorporate top-of-the-line features as well as world-class community amenities and breathtaking views. Given the recent real estate development boom in the area, it is possible to purchase a new-built, custom home, or acquire a vacant lot on which to build your very own dream home.

What to Do In Scottsdale, Arizona

Like most cities that attract a large number of visitors, Scottsdale, AZ has a wealth of entertainment options – both man-made and natural.

Natural Attractions

Scottsdale, AZ is centrally located, so you can easily reach some of Arizona’s most breathtaking natural wonders in just a few hours, but there is plenty to see right in Scottsdale. The Indian Wash Greenbelt is a 12-mile long path that connects Scottsdale’s four public parks: Vista del Camino, Eldorado, Indian School, and Chaparral. These parks feature fishing ponds, sports fields, athletic courts, playgrounds, and much more. The Greenbelt is a popular spot for walkers, joggers, and cyclists.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

Much of the entertainment options in Scottsdale can be found in Old Town Scottsdale. Here you will find the Scottsdale Fashion Square – the home of many high-end retail boutiques. Scottsdale Fashion Square is over 2 million square feet and is home to such renowned clothiers as Armani Exchange, Burberry, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton. There are also a variety of locally owned boutiques throughout the area. In addition to the great retail options, there are many restaurants offering a variety of cuisines, nightspots, and live music venues.
And that’s just one small part of Scottsdale.

Golf

There are over 200 golf courses in the Scottsdale area. Regardless of what style of course you prefer or your skill level, you can find a course to suit you here. There are traditional, American-style courses, links courses worthy of Scotland (minus the weather), and the desert-style courses Arizona made famous. Many of the communities are built alongside renowned golf courses, but regardless of where you choose to buy a home in Scottsdale, you will never be far from the links.

Scottsdale is truly a great place to live, but you don’t have to take the word of publications like Business Week and Forbes at face value, come experience it for yourself.

Scottsdale Weather

The region’s year-round warm weather and abundant sunshine is a major factor in Scottsdale’s tourism appeal. In particular, during the winter season, when thousands of wealthy tourists from the Midwest, the northeast, and as far away as Canada, flood the area with long-term visits (known locally as “snowbirds”). These tourists, who often practice the same migration routine annually, also often end up purchasing second homes in the area.

Scottsdale Industry

Scottsdale Waterfront

Scottsdale Waterfront

The famed Mayo Clinic has one of its three major branches in Scottsdale. This and its resulting effects have made Scottsdale a strong destination nationally for medical care.

The aviation industry has also grown in Scottsdale, with the construction of the Scottsdale Airport in North Scottsdale, in the 1960s. Today, the airport is one of the busiest single-runway airports in the United States in terms of aircraft operations. Though there is little to no commercial air service, nearly all operations are corporate or general aviation.

The Scottsdale Airpark, home to over 55K employees, 2,600 businesses, and 23M square feet (2,100K m2) of office space is expected to continue growing by over 3K employees per year. Many important companies are headquartered or have regional headquarters in the park, including AXA, GE Capital, DHL, Discount Tire Company, Fidelity Investments, JDA Software, and The Vanguard Group.

Brian really listened and never became impatient while we worked out what type of home and what price range would best suit us.
