I am trying to figure out if I can get a 4/2 2000 sq feet (roughly), decent sized yard and pool , for under 300K . Is that crazy talk ?

Great news! You absolutely can! I found 7 properties listed on the MLS that meet those criteria ranging in price from $195,000 to $299,900 - but most buyers (yourself included, I'm sure) will have a few more items on their wish list. In this inventory of 7 - only 3 have garages. Most buyers have preferences regarding the age of the home - these 7 range from the oldest being built in 1957 (2 properties) and the newest in 1979 (2 properties). Some buyers are in search of that mid century gem - and these can be wonderful and fashionable investments! Solid, sturdy construction is certainly a valuable asset in those older homes when you can find it! Lastly, the next feature to consider is location within Scottsdale. Of these 7 homes, 6 are in Delightful South Scottsdale, with 1 home in Charming North Scottsdale. Whether you prefer one area to another is a matter of personal preference entirely, but if you are hoping to stay within this budget in North Scottsdale, you may find it quite a bit more challenging. If you are in search of more choices, South Scottsdale will certainly have more to offer.

Feel free to contact me with an email address and I will send these listings over to you to review.

Best wishes for a happy house hunt,

Hello, that is not crazy talk at the moment. I just checked the MLS to confirm this and am happy to get more information from you to be more specific for you. At that time, I can send you the information on the listings available in this criteria.
