Welcome to Scottsdale. Right now inventory is moving quickly in both sales and rentals. Prices are moving up so if you had a choice to rent or buy, it might be a better idea to buy right now. With interest rates so low, it is most likely going to cost you less per month to own a home. The problem could be finding a home that suits your needs right now since there aren't a lot of great homes to choose from. I am very picky when it comes to my clients and try to jump on the best ones the day they come on the market.
If you need any help, or would like to chat about your options, I specialize in working with buyers, so please contact me anytime. I work full time, everyday and would be happy to help you in your search.
Best of luck in your new venture.
