If you’re like many people, you visit this beautiful city regularly – and you’re thinking about buying a vacation home in Scottsdale. But is it the right choice for you? This guide to buying a vacation home in Scottsdale can help you decide.
Should You Buy a Vacation Home in Scottsdale?
Buying a vacation home in Scottsdale – particularly in or near one of the city’s fabulous golf course communities – is a big decision. However, it may be the best choice you ever make, because:
- A vacation home can result in cost savings each time you visit
- You may be able to generate income by renting your home when you’re not in residence
- You have a ready-made retirement home if you choose to retire here
Here’s a closer look at each.
Reason #1 to Buy a Vacation Home in Scottsdale: Savings
If you spend more than a few weeks in Scottsdale each year – or if you hope to – you know that rental home costs can be exorbitant. When you purchase a vacation home here, you may be able to save a significant amount of your hard-earned money; some rental home costs are higher than a full year of monthly mortgage payments would be.
Reason #2 to Buy a Vacation Home in Scottsdale: Income Generation
It’s completely possible (and in many cases, desirable) to rent out your vacation home when you’re not in residence. Doing so could generate enough income to cover your mortgage payments each year, which results in even more savings for you when you come to visit.

Reason #3 to Buy a Vacation Home in Scottsdale: A Ready-Made Retirement Home
If you choose to retire in Scottsdale, your home will be here waiting for you when you’re ready. That way, you can simply pack up and make your next vacation a permanent one.
