THE LUXURY CONDO MARKET IN SCOTTSDALE, PHOENIX & TEMPE
In the last decade or so, Greater Phoenix and Scottsdale have seen the introduction and growth of large luxury condo developments offering outstanding amenities and a different way to enjoy desert living. Many notable developments have gone up in the new Scottsdale Waterfront area as well in the heart of the Biltmore corridor.
These luxury condo developments are perfect for local residents who want to downsize their larger homes or for seasonal visitors who want to “lock and leave” their Arizona homes. Besides the amenities onsite, many of these communities are walking distance from excellent restaurants, entertainment, shopping, cultural attractions and more.
While the list below is not exhaustive, here is a brief overview of some of the developments that are worth exploring.
