Searching for your luxury home? Think outside the box. Look beyond Scottsdale real estate
What specific elements top your wish-list for your next home? One of the most common elements homeowners want is a nice view. Beyond that, many people want a quiet neighborhood that is also semi-close to the conveniences of a bigger city.
With these two elements in mind, you may be thinking that Scottsdale real estate is the way to go. However, there are not many homes for sale in Scottsdale that can offer breathtaking views as well as peace and quiet. Those that are available are typically over-priced and located in over-crowded neighborhoods.
Still have your mind set on Scottsdale luxury homes? Take a look at this comparison between a luxury gated community in Scottsdale and one in Tucson, Arizona.

Paradise Reserve is a Scottsdale luxury real estate community located in the Phoenix Mountain Preserve. It includes 14 estate homesites as well as 32 smaller homesites located in “The Village” with luxury homes to be built by Cullum Homes.
Estate Homesite Facts:
– Range in size from 1 – 3 acres
– 14 homesites available
– 46+ acres of desert mountains

While this all sounds nice, you can actually find better properties with larger homesites and more amenities if you look outside of Scottsdale. The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain in Marana, Arizona offers all of the same main elements as Paradise Reserve but with better perks.
