It's incredible, the Scottsdale real estate market is still one of the best in the US. I'm getting strong offers on my Scottsdale listings and I have a select group of intelligent home buyers all looking for what, I encourage my clients to aspire to, the very best Scottsdale or Phoenix home; never compromise.

There are very few, truly fine upper market properties that check all the boxes i.e good design, great floor-plan, views, nice landscape design, new or nicely updated. Homes in North Scottsdale in communities like Silverleaf, Troon, Desert Ridge, and Grayhawk are in high demand so I find some home buyers are not taking the time to truly find the best Scottsdale home for them. 

The key to finding a great home is patience. Study the homes that come on the market and avoid any rush to purchase. View many. The more you see, the better your understanding of the market and inventory. In essence, don't pull your hair out.

The current real estate situation in Scottsdale reminds me of the shopkeeper in the apoplectic movies, who only has a few loaves of bread in the store, with a long line of people vying for what's in stock. That picture summarizes the challenging real estate situation in Scottsdale and Phoenix for the upper-end home buyers who are not willing to settle for just a nice home.

For example, I have a new client looking for a home in the $900,000 to $1,200,000 range. We have seen some very nice homes but none are "standouts" which is what any home buyer's goal should be within a given price range. As an experienced Realtor, you learn to look for the "gem" homes within a given price range. Whether you are looking between $300,000 and $400,000 or $2,000,000 to $5,000,000 there are going to be certain homes that are going to be OUTSTANDING compared to the rest. Always WAIT for those. To further discuss the difference between nice and outstanding, please feel free to call me.

In every case, in ALL price ranges, there is a "stand out home" in every community in Phoenix and Scottsdale, whether it's Troon, Silverleaf, DC Ranch, Desert Ridge, Central Scottsdale, South Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert or Central Phoenix.  So what is the meaningful importance of this blog to a reader? The answer is be selective.
