Grab your Piece of Scottsdale While Its Affordable!

By: Robert Nachman

There is a prediction out in the media that the median price of homes in these gorgeous desert golf communities will be on the increase. Of course, there are some golf communities that offer so much else, that you don't even have to be a golf player to want to live there.

One of these areas is Scottsdale. It has the perfect climate with winters being mild to moderate and summers that are hot. Since it is always arid, it discourages such age-related symptoms as wheezing lungs and creaking bones.

Scottsdale has an upbeat culture and also boasts the most superb shopping and nightlife. Its golfing reputation is internationally respected in world-class golf circles.

Each year the FBR Open Golf Tournament is held in Scottsdale. The purse is $6,000,000, and every year it attracts hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts. 2006 saw a record attendance of over 536,000, even though the event is nationally televised.

With over 200 public and private golf courses, there is no shortage of golf enthusiasts here. Scottsdale golf is said to be as good as the game can get. It also offers golfing variety, so if you have a high handicap, try target golfing. This type of golf game, sometimes known as desert golf, was pioneered in Scottsdale

Having whetted your appetite, I should mention that now is the time of the year when the desert is getting warmer and folks in the rest of the frozen world are dreaming of Scottsdale.

This is a great time to buy a home, although soon the house prices are expected to be on the increase. At the moment the MLS is nationally reported to be running about 9% off the asking price.

However, in the desert golf areas of Scottsdale the realty market is steady; there are few foreclosures. In fact, even the luxury market is thriving, in spite of a national price decrease in this bracket. This leads real estate agents to believe that there will be an increase in average home prices in Scottsdale as the weather warms up.

Scottsdale has been a good investment and has remained almost unscathed by the national realty crisis. Just at the moment there is a high inventory, so buyers have lots of homes to choose from. Buyers can also access the lowest interest rates for four years and have lots of negotiating power at this time.
