Top 5 reasons Coloradans are buying Scottsdale condos

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Sunday, March 27, 2011 -- The Colorado Rockies have moved into their new “second” home at Scottsdale’s new baseball facility -- Salt River Fields at Talking Stick. Their fans and other Coloradans are making Arizona their home away from home. And, why not? There are several key reasons Coloradans are investing in Arizona real estate.

#1 – Ideal Timing

The timing couldn’t be better. The combination of ample inventory and low prices make Arizona’s real estate market a buyer’s market and Colorado buyers are responding.

“We are seeing more and more people from Colorado buying condos at Corriente Residences,” said Katie O. Williams, broker for Corriente Residences in Scottsdale, Ariz. “Buyers not only appreciate the proximity to the Rockies’ new baseball training facility, just a 2.3 miles away, they are cashing in on one of the best buyer’s markets in years.”

#2 – The Arizona Weather - Bright & Sunny

The refreshing Arizona weather remains a top reason snowbirds from around the world visit Arizona – and it’s no different for Colorado residents.

Coloradans experience temperatures as low as the mid-teens with plenty of snow during the winter months – a stark contrast to the clear blue, sunny Arizona days with winter temperatures ranging from the low 70s to the high 80s.

#3 – Outdoor Activities
Outdoor activities are abundant in Arizona each winter. From Major League Baseball’s Spring Training to the PGA Golf Tournament at TPC Scottsdale – Coloradans enjoy experiencing the outdoor activities that Arizona provides.

“The Corriente owners enjoy the outdoor lifestyle when they’re visiting their Corriente home,” according Williams. “Whether they are relaxing by the pool, enjoying the high-quality gym, or participating in outdoor activities like cycling, running, golfing or playing tennis, they always enjoy a trip to Arizona. It’s a peaceful place to vacation.”

#4 – Easy Travel

With about two dozen non-stop flights a day from Denver to Phoenix to choose from, it makes a quick flight to their home-away-from-home easier than ever.

“It’s less than a two hour flight, and depending on the time of year and travel schedule, flights can run less than $250 roundtrip,” Williams noted.

#5 – Convenience

The “lock and leave” convenience gives Colorado buyers a worry-free experience unlike traditional home upkeep. Qualified professionals take care of pool maintenance, yard care and security when they are away from their second home.
