 Upgrade to Your Dream Home in Scottsdale At a Fraction of The Price
Second homes in Scottsdale Arizona are all the rage these days, and for a reason, too: Phoenix and Scottsdale properties are selling at rock-bottom prices. 
Why The Affordable Prices
A common misconception about affordable goods and services is that they are of sub-standard quality or that they have become obsolete. In the real estate industry, though, prices can only get so low before they due to rise back up again, and Phoenix and Scottsdale properties are no different.
Of all the U.S. states, Arizona is among the top 5 which was most affected by the housing crisis some years back. Furthermore, homes in Arizona aren't as costly - due to tax and other fees - as those in other states like California and New York. All these factors add up to a lot of foreclosed home and properties sold at rock bottom prices.
That's not to say the future of the real estate and housing industry in Scottsdale can only be bleak. Individual investors, second home buyers, snowbirds, empty nesters and retirees, as well as young families are already smelling the good buys and are purchasing their dream homes at more than half the price. 
Affordable, Fast, Simple, Quick Dream Home Upgrades in Scottsdale
You can upgrade to your dream home in Scottsdale at a fraction of the price, too. As of the moment, there is no better time to purchase your dream second home than now. The real estate industry appreciates over time buying properties while they are still at their all-time low is the best time to invest. Aside from the low median selling prices, refundable tax credits are also available to home buyers. 
Interest rates are also another reason why now is the best time to purchase your dream home in Scottsdale. Now, one can easily get fixed loan rates for as low as below 5 percent in the market. Short sale homes are now also easier, faster, and simpler to close with the HAFA program. 
The Scottsdale Lifestyle
So the low pricing has convinced you to upgrade to your dream home in Scottsdale at a fraction of the price. Now you're wondering if the move will be worth the fun.
Arizona boasts of warm sunny climate 7 months a year. The remaining 5 cold months, at worst, will only require you to put on an extra coat and nothing more. This means that, for most of the time, you get to enjoy all the desert fun and activities you don't normally get to enjoy while you're living somewhere north, or somewhere where you need to plod through a feet of snow to pick up the morning's paper in the driveway. 
Getting the Right Broker For Your Dream Home in Scottsdale
Whether you’re a first-time buyer or you’re a second home buyer upgrading to your Scottsdale dream home, you’ll need the help of a Scottsdale real estate broker. Real estate brokers make the purchase even easier. They do the legwork of arranging payments with your bank, facilitating papers, and help expedite the entire process of purchase. Scottsdale real estate brokers also have a wide array of listing which can help you narrow down the search for your Scottsdale dream home.

Enjoy Affordable Pricing and a Great Lifestyle, Buy in Phoenix 

Arizona is one of the top five of those badly hit by the housing crisis in the country. It is therefore not surprising at all to find homes and properties being offered at their historical low. If there is any best time to invest in real estate, it would be now.
All Time Low But Slowly Rising
From the housing crash, late last year to second quarter of this year have seen an increase in the sale of existing homes, and in the release of new housing permits along with the other key cities across United States. The 2003 level has still much to increase if it is to keep up with its 2006 peak level. 
The movements in the chart, however, are still tell-tales of how far up the prices can go. This means that now is the best time to invest in a Phoenix property when prices are still low and affordable enough, but where movements for growth are, at the same time, observable. 
Everything You Need Under The Sun
There are several misconceptions about Phoenix. Some people think Phoenix is too hot and dry to live in. Unknown to them, Days are relatively warm and nights are cool. Phoenix actually enjoys 7 months of warm sun and 5 months of mild winters. This means you still get to experience an occasional slight drizzling of snowfall without having to don on several layers of clothing at one time, or having to spend an entire day shoveling the snow out of your drive way. 
Another misconception is that majority of the population in Phoenix and Scottsdale are retirees. While it is true that Arizona is the center for snowbirds, empty nesters, and retirees, much of the population is also composed of young adults and young families. There are several notable universities in Phoenix and Scottsdale, and tourism is vibrant and thriving that it is not uncommon to find people in their late twenties and early thirties manning the restaurants, malls, groceries, and running the local nightlife. 
There's More To Phoenix Than Golfing 
Aside from tourism, sports and sporting events are also common in Arizona. Although the place does have a lot of golf courses and golfing communities – some of the world’s best are in Phoenix – it also has its competitive share of stadiums, biking and hiking trails, and other outdoor activity venues. 
Getting What You Want, Where You Want, How You Want
There’s never a shortage of property listings in Phoenix. And because it can be quite a task poring over each property under the specific area of your preference, you’ll need the help of an experienced Phoenix real estate broker to help you get your purchase right the first time. 
Experienced Phoenix real estate brokers know the ins and outs of the real estate industry and help you find the right property given your budget. They can also facilitate and arrange the loans and mortgage with your bank or financing institution which most individuals find the most daunting, tiring, and cumbersome task in the entire process of purchasing a property. The important thing is to communicate and convey your needs and requirements well with your real estate broker so he or she can help you get the most out of your home investment in Phoenix.

 Perfect Opportunity For First Time Home Phoenix Buyers

This year sets the conditions for the perfect opportunity for first time home Phoenix buyers to finally get their dream house. There are countless reasons why investing in a Phoenix property and moving there is a good idea. 
In a recent home indices study, the median prices of Phoenix homes have gone back to median prices from eleven years ago. Furthermore, in another index report from last year's second quarter, an increase in the sales of existing homes, new homes, and an increase in the release of housing permits have been observed. Such activity, however, is no match for the 2006 level, which was the highest. But necessarily, a rising movement in graphs can only mean one thing for investors: property values are rising so it's time to invest now while prices are still affordable. 
Great climate and affordable pricing makes up the perfect opportunity for first time home Phoenix buyers to buy their home in Phoenix. But if you have decided to go for your first home buy, you’ll need to consider other points such as financing. 
For one, you need to find out if you qualify for mortgage in Phoenix. You will have to provide banks with information regarding your name, place of residence for the past two years as well as income history, salary by the hour and commissions, how much bonus you earn from your job, retirement funds if any, and your current income. The bank will also require you to disclose your total assists including all savings and checking accounts, 401K, CD's, and IRAs if any. Most importantly, the bank or the mortgage company will look at your credit history. 
First Time Home Buyer Loan Program Options in Phoenix Arizona
When you have a good credit score, you're likely to get higher chances of qualifying for loan programs available to Phoenix home buyers. You can go for the FHA Loans. The FHA Loans is one of the more commonly opted loans since it doesn't just qualify those with low credit standing, it also has a low down payment requirement of only 3.5%.
The USDA is a 100% loans that is based on the location of the property. VA loans are for qualified veterans with VA entitlement. It is also a 100% loan ideal for veteran empty nesters and retirees planning to spend their golden years under the golden Phoenix sun.
Finding a Phoenix Real Estate Broker and Realtor
A common misconception among first time homebuyers is that hiring a realtor or broker to help them out with their home purchase is expensive. On the contrary, real estate brokers and realtors will help you save up more. Brokers and realtors who are backed up years of experience and supported by national real estate organization help you make informed home purchase decisions. 
Remember, purchasing a home is not something you do on a daily basis. Purchasing a home requires much thought and careful decision-making. By hiring a realtor or real estate broker, you lower the chances of you investing on properties that, you may find out too late, may not be what you’re looking for.
