5 Important Things To Know Before You Purchase a Home in Scottsdale
1 Consider where you want to buy before you start to open doors.
The Phoenix and surrounding areas such as Scottsdale, Fountian Hills, Chandler, Gilbert Mesa Ahwautukee and so on have been evolving on a slow AND fast pace. That basically means that as the real estate market and demand for housing changes, homes being built in different areas will vary over time by the years they were built. Homers that are closer to Phoenix central and old town locations might have a 1940-50-60 date stamp on them. The further out you go, the later the date of construction.
My advice here if you have never visited the Phoenix area is to come visit a few times to get your compas properly adjusted so you'll know how to find each developed area based on it's description and geographical location. Drive these areas to see what they visually look like so you'll better know what to expect to see when you eventually find a home that looks great in photos on line. That way you'll realize perhaps why it's priced so low if it's in a less desireable area of the city.
