2016 has been an amazing year for luxury real estate in the Phoenix Metro market (includes Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Arcadia, Biltmore, etc.). Multiple records were broken. I still believe that we are underpriced for the type of home and size (land and structure) you can buy compared to around the world. We don’t have ocean front but we do have lake front, we don’t have sky scrapers but we do have the most amazing sunsets. I’ll take mountain and desert views any day of the year! Why not retire in Arizona? From Scottsdale to phoenix, from Paradise to the Biltmore – the perfect weather and views await…
