I'm wondering if you ever moved to Phoenix. I was just in Minnesota a few months ago and really enjoyed my stay. But returning to AZ surely puts a smile on my face as well. Hope things worked out for you but if you haven't decided, I would prompt you to visit the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing at It's a great website to use for gathering information about our communities. Please let us know if we can help! ~B. ... more

The question seems to be, should you rent or buy in Scottsdale? There are a lot of variables to that, have you visited here before and familiar with Scottsdale already? If so, you may already know where you would like to live and know about out great city. Then I would recommend to buy for sure. Interest rates are so low and housing prices are low as well. If you never have been here before, renting could be a good way to feel it out and decide where you want to live. Keep in mind, however, how expensive and awful it is to move again when you buy! To avoid that hassle I would come here for a visit first, I will show you around to the different areas and then focus more seriously on what is best for you. For instance, "How long will you be living here? Is this temporary? If your husband shows all over the U.S. would being accessible to the airport be important?" Feel free to call me to discuss further, with no obligation. Feel free to jump on my website to view live MLS listings. Save yourself the trouble of looking at old listings on those other websites.

Contact a reputable CPA for a complete answer. Some cities charge a rental tax of usually 1.5% to 2% a month. FIRTA applies to all foreign investors when they sell their residential properties.

Hi Jg,

Your best option is to hire a real estate attorney or a Buyer's Agent.
