The biggest misconception about Scottsdale Real Estate is that the homes are all high end.
This is really not true. There are homes for everyone in every income level.
South Scottsdale (South of Thomas) is typically older homes but there are some good buys.
Mid Scottsdale (North of Thomas to Shea) contains a lot of homes at every price level and has a number of resorts)
North Scottsdale (North of Shea to Carefree Highway) are the most expensive homes in Scottsdale. The property density is typically very low and the median price for these homes is over $700,000. There are also many nice townhomes and great golf courses in this area as well.
I can provide more specific information and subdivision maps in case anyone has additional questions or comments.
