Types of Properties in Scottsdale, AZ

Whether you’re a looking for your first home, moving up to a bigger one, downsizing because you’ve retired, or buying a vacation home to take advantage of Arizona’s perfect weather, the range of properties in Scottsdale is diverse enough to find one that fits you to a T.

Scottsdale Single-family Homes

Single-family homes dominate the property profile of Scottsdale, outnumbering every other real estate type 5:1.

Home prices are wide ranging. Geographically speaking, homes around southern Scottsdale have lower prices while the opposite is true around the northern areas of the city.

The most affordable single-family homes start at the low six figures. These homes typically have 2 to 3 bedrooms and baths, with lot sizes of 1,000 to 1,300 square feet.

There are also higher-end homes if that’s what you’re looking for.

Scottsdale Luxury Homes

In Scottsdale, luxury properties come with only the finest of features and amenities.

They command some of the most spectacular views of the city – whether waterfront, mountain range, the valleys, and more.

The homes are built to the highest standards, crafted with the best materials, and situated in communities that offer uniquely exclusive benefits.

Scottsdale Luxury and Golf Course Properties

Exclusive gated and master-planned communities are located in the northern area of Scottsdale. Homes here boast the best in luxury amenities.

The higher price tag on these homes has to do with their proximity to the Sonoran Preserve and the McDowell Mountains which provide spectacular desert views, scenic mountain range vistas, and opportunities for hiking and climbing.

Golf Course Properties

Golf course properties represent the pinnacle of golf and country club lifestyle. These properties are almost exclusively found in private golf and country club communities.

Found within or very close to golf courses, these homes often sit on the greens and provide their owners with stunning views of the golf course.

Golf course properties in planned communities provide all the benefits of planned community/country club living, with the added benefit of exclusive memberships and unprecedented access.

Some of the sought-after Scottsdale golf course communities are:

  • McCormick Ranch features two 18-hole championship golf courses at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club. The Palm Course is featured as one of Golf Illustrated’s Top 18 Water Holes of America while the Pine Course regularly hosts the PGA’s regional qualifiers for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
  • DC Ranch is one of the most acclaimed private golf and residential communities in the US, exemplifying luxury living in a beautiful mountain-desert environment.
  • McDowell Mountain Ranch is home to the McDowell Mountain Golf Club, found on the foothills of the mountain. The public golf course was renovated in 2011 and occupies 7,072 yards.
