Arizona Golf Properties for Investment, Retirement or Second-Homes
Arizona golf properties are attracting all kinds of potential buyers, but the top three most popular buyers in the market right now are investors, retirees, and families looking to purchase second homes. This trend started several years ago around 2006-7, when the development of highly sought-after luxury golf communities began increasing in Scottsdale and Tucson, Arizona. It remains even more prevalent today, now that the economy and housing market has significantly improved.
Not only do people love the warm weather that Arizona offers practically year-round, this great state also provides world-class golf courses for professionals and hobbyists alike. Pair these golf courses with fine dining and upscale shopping, and you’ve got a perfect mix of amenities to attract potential buyers to Arizona golf real estate.
International investors are attracted to Arizona golf properties for many reasons. Perhaps the top reason however is the current state of the U.S. dollar. If you’re coming from Canada, for example, you can invest less money in Arizona golf real estate than an American or European and reap major rewards. The US also has lower property tax, less fees and restrictions than some other countries, making it an ideal place for international investors to purchase real estate.
People who are no longer working or are planning their retirement also love to buy golf real estate in Arizona because of the many amenities and other perks it provides. Conveniences such as sunny weather and minimal property maintenance are consistently the most popular reasons retirees choose luxury Arizona golf homes.
Furthermore, families looking to purchase second-homes for winter vacations and extended stays often choose to buy Arizona golf properties because of all the extra fun activities and entertainment such as hiking, horseback riding, swimming in the pool, and mountain biking.
Neighborhood like Troon North and Silverleaf in North Scottsdale boast vast golf courses in luxurious communities along with hot-spots like DC Ranch and The Boulders. But perhaps one of the greatest ‘hidden gems’ of the southwest is Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona.
Tucked away in these foothills lies some of the best luxury golf real estate in Arizona. The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is a gated community with estate homesites and custom homes for a sophisticated clientele. Not only do homeowners gain access to the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf course, they can also take advantage of hotel amenities at The Ritz-Carlton such as the world-class spa, several relaxing pools, a poolside cafe, and three restaurants.
Other activities in this Arizona golf community include Ritz-Carlton resort classes for exercise and relaxation. There are also tennis courts, fitness classes, sand volleyball, bocce ball, Ritz Kids activities, and cultural programs; plenty of things to entertain people of all ages.
Finally there are over 25 miles of improved trails, for quiet evening walks or an ambitious all-day hiking exploration.
