I used the zip code 85255 for your N. Scottsdale zip code in conjunction with the zip code in the Biltmore area 85018 (85016 is the Biltmore mall, but lower home prices there).
As you can see below, the average home is almost double in your N. Scottsdale zip code, and the average list price is almost double. There are over 3x the amount of homes for sale in the N. Scottsdale zip code, so you may have an opportunity to get a better deal (865 homes versus 298 homes). The value has gone up more in the 85018 zip code, but the value for N. Scottsdale has still gone up over 15%.

I can pull more detailed comps off MLS of homes that are in the 7 figures as well. This was a quick search just zip code based, not price based.
I would love the opportunity to chat with you further regarding your home search! It does not hurt to get you into MLS so you can at least start seeing what is out there. Just keep in mind that the inventory is not extremely high, so homes are going quicker nowadays. What you see today, may not be there 2 weeks from now.
