Scottsdale Real Estate Review: Terravita Community Vs The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain
Scottsdale real estate has its perks. There is no doubt about that. But what many people don’t realize is, you can actually find luxury real estate in Arizona outside of Scottsdale. In fact, many homes for sale in Scottsdale are being sold above market value because the population continues to increase each year and there’s just not much space left in town. Rather than settle for an overpriced Scottsdale luxury home in an overcrowded city, why not choose a peaceful luxury community nestled into the foothills of the Tortolita Mountains, where you can choose to build a new custom home on an estate homesite? Take a look at this comparison of The Terravita community in Scottsdale, and The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain.
