Does is Make $ Sense to Buy a House Scottsdale Now?

Rent or buy?

I found this home buying vs. renting calculator 5 years ago, and think it’s just as relevant in today’s real estate market as ever.  Home sales and rental prices have been on the rise, and so have interest rates.  So, for those of you trying to decide if now is the time to buy a house in Scottsdale, I’ll re-post this great little calculator.

Originally published as: Buy or Rent – Now there’s a calculator – At Home in Scottsdale on March 24, 2008

Here’s a helpful home buying vs. home renting calculator from the New York Times web site.  What I really like about this calculator is that it gives you a lot of info with just a couple changes to match your location.  It also gives you a visual look at when you start seeing the savings (if any) of buying a home in your market.

In Scottsdale, property taxes are less than what the calculator defaults to, so I suggest changing the percentage to .5% to be closer to our rates.

Scottsdale Ranked as 6th Safest City in U.S.

McCormick Golf Club - Camelback Mountain

The Business Insider recently published “The 20 Safest Cities in America”, sharing from the latest FBI report on crime in America, and Scottsdale ranked in 6th place.

Besides being clean and pretty, it’s great for home buyers to know Scottsdale has crime rates substantially below the national average.

If you are looking for more information on crime statistics for Scottsdale, you can visit:

For information on crime stats in the City of Phoenix, visit Crime Statistics and Map.

For crime information for all other cities, you will find the city web site at the League of Cities and Towns website.

And finally, when clients ask for further information about local crime rates, I  suggest they call the non-emergency number for the city they are thinking about buyer a home in, and talking to the Public Information Officer to ask their specific questions.

One last footnote: The Business Insider used one of my At Home In Scottsdale photos for their article, which was quite a pleasant surprise!

More Phoenix Metro Home Buyers Financing Their Homes

Phoenix Metro Real Estate Cash Buyers

Last week, a  future Scottsdale home buyer told me that he’d heard it’s hard to get a loan to buy a house.  I was a bit taken by surprise because the majority of home buyers are using conventional mortgages to purchase homes in today’s market.  Interest rates are still incredibly low when looked at historically. And, while lenders want solid credit and a lot of documentation, they are lending money.

The chart above shows that from about 2004-2007, approximately 1 in 10 homes in the Phoenix Metro area was purchased with cash.  Cash buyers then became a more significant part of the market, purchasing 35-40% of the homes, for the past several years. Looking at 2013, you can see the trend is changing, with cash buyers now comprising only 30% of the market, so that 7 in 10 local home buyers are getting home loans.

I’ve worked with a lot of great lenders over the years, and have listed several here on my web site.  If you are thinking about buying a home, and don’t plan to pay cash, definitely call a lender and get an idea of what you can afford, and what you are willing to pay.  This first step will get your home buying process started off on the right foot.

If you have any questions about the home buying process, please call or email me.  I’m here to help.
