I know you probably think I'm crazy but the Summer months can be a great time to shop for homes in the Scottsdale area. Especially if your an out of town guest who would like to have a winter getaway in Scottsdale.
You would not believe how inexpensive things are in Scottsdale in the summer. From restaurants, to resorts and you might as well play some golf while you are here. Golf Scottsdale in the summer and pay 1/2 or less than you would pay in the winter! Tee off at 5:30 in the morning, beat the heat, and then have the rest of the day to shop for homes or relax in the pool. Same thing with booking a resort, many will offer pay one night get another night free and a few will also throw in food in addition to the 1/2 price rooms.
One word of caution, if you want to shop for houses in Scottsdale during the summer months go early and wrap up by noonish, that seems to be a good game plan.
When January comes around and your freezing up north your Scottsdale place will be ready for you. Then you can enjoy the winter instead of spending it shopping for homes. Let us know how we can help, we are Scottsdale real estate experts!
