Scottsdale Real Estate Is More Diverse Than One Might Imagine

MAP of Scottsdale BorderIf you're going to discuss Scottsdale, somewhere within that conversation you'll be talking about Scottsdale real estate. Since Scottsdale's founding in 1888 by United States Amy Chaplain Winfield Scott, Scottsdale, Cave Creek and Phoenix has grown from a collection of cattle ranches and citrus farms into a cosmopolitan community of young up-and-comers, financially comfortable middle-agers and retirees enjoying their just rewards. The city's "resort" lifestyle extends far beyond the grounds of its expansive hotels. Many housing developments feature Scottsdale real estate that include golf courses, luxury homes, recreational complexes, tennis, shopping and other amenities.

Although cattle ranching in the area is long gone, vast multi-development neighborhoods, as with Scottsdale luxury real estate communities such as McCormick Ranch, Gainey Ranch , Desert Mountain, The Boulders, Winfield and more, still bear the names of the early newcomers, primarily wealthy Midwesterners, who amassed the landholdings on which they are built. These neighborhoods often include a mix of residential offerings, including condominiums, townhomes, patio homes, single-family, and high end Scottsdale luxury real estate. The Scottsdale real estate for sale is as unique and diverse as its topography.

Some of the diversity that Scottsdale Arizona offers is associated with its topography. Scottsdale is approximately 31 miles long and less than 2 miles wide at its narrowest point. From the southern border to the northern border there is an elevation change of about 3,336 feet or from 1135 to 4800 feet of elevation change. At the higher elevation changes the temperature can be 8 to 10 degrees cooler. Scottsdale goes from the lush green areas to the high Sonoran Deserts and its incredibly beautiful flora.

Scottsdale real estate consists of condominiums, townhomes, patio home, single family, and of course luxury homes.  Homes run from less than $100,000 to $27,500,000 million dollars.
