Why Scottsdale? Could Be The Next Las Vegas!

(See the full article at KJZZ.org)

While you might not immediately compare #Scottsdale to the busy Las Vegas Strip, there are a few similarities. Warm weather, a few casinos for those looking to do some gaming, and great food! However, some statistics around tourism last year suggest that Arizona might be in line for the “next Las Vegas” according to some.

An article previously posted in KJZZ explored the topic in more detail:

“It is kind of a little mini Vegas in my opinion but it has some room to grow,” he said. “I think Scottsdale’s market is just at the beginning of our upswing.

Lea Diamond, a managing partner of the Lux Transportation company, said, “We see a lot of East Coast travel for bachelor and bachelorette parties and also a lot of pre-wedding parties.”

According to a report from the state tourism office, Phoenix and Central Arizona have seen steady gains in total travel related spending since 2010, growing by nearly 19 percent. By 2015, travelers spent roughly $1.36 billion in the area.

Breaking that down a bit, in 2015 Scottsdale saw roughly 8.6 million visitors, Tempe hosted 4 million, and overall, the Phoenix metro saw more than 19 million visitors.

Arizona is A Perfect Winter Getaway

(See full article at AZCentral.com)

Winter Getaway – Does the idea of shoveling #snow get old to you real fast? You’re not alone! There are many seasonal residents in Arizona that use the winter months as an opportunity to Getaway and stay thawed out during the winter.

The National Weather Service are already predicting a warm, dry winter across the state.

The Climate Prediction Center’s outlook calls for a warm, dry winter for the Southwest, including the Phoenix area. Meanwhile, the Canadian version of the “Farmers’ Almanac” predicts a cold winter in most of that country. Environment Canada, that country’s version of the National Weather Service, is not as certain for a colder-than-normal winter.

So chances are that plenty of folks in Alberta and Manitoba, not to mention Minnesota and North Dakota (the CPC is calling for colder than average temperatures in the upper Midwest), plan on a Getaway once the snow starts flying.

If you’re ready to trade in your snow chains, shovels, and icy roads for something more warm and dry and Getaway it’s probably a good idea to talk to Mike Domer.

1,600 Apartments To Be Built In Scottsdale

2016-11-18 1600 Apartments to be built

See the full article at AZ Central -> http://gplnk.co/2giVIVg

Urban #Scottsdale is continuing to boom as the council approved the building of three new multi story developments. The council voted to change the zoning of two areas in the south of Scottsdale, and one area near Scottsdale Quarter.

Naturally, we think Scottsdale is a great place to live! These new changes to the zoning means that* more real estate opportunities* are going to be opening in Scottsdale:

Scottsdale’s two emerging urban corridors — in the south near Old Town and in the north near Scottsdale Airport — will get another influx of residents after the City Council on Tuesday approved three multi-story development projects with space for a combined 1,600 apartments.

Scottsdale lands in the top 20 of Wallethub’s “2016’s Most Fun Cities in America”

Scottsdale Named “2016’s Most Fun Cities in America” – http://gplnk.co/2d5upg4

We could have told you #Scottsdale is one of the most fun cities in America! But sometimes it’s better to hear it from an independent source.

Wallethub’s list recently named Scottsdale the number 10 “most fun city in America” and honorable mention to Tempe coming in at number 13.

Scottsdale came out in the top 10 for having ample parkland, fitness options and golfing. In fact, the city has the most public golf courses and fitness centers per 100,000 residents. We’re sure Scottsdale and Tempe’s buzzing nightlife and restaurant scenes didn’t hurt either.

Check the link above for more about their criteria, plus other cities in AZ that made the list.
