Great Neighborhoods In Scottsdale, Arizona

As an insurance agency in Scottsdale, we usually are talking about home insurance with clients after they have already commenced the process of purchasing a home. However, as a resident, I am often asked where the best places to live are and what communities. It is tough to make a poor selection in Scottsdale because the majority of the area is ideal for homes and to own vacation rental properties.

Some Scottsdale Neighborhoods:


Grayhawk is a well-established community with top quality living amenities that make it one of the best neighborhoods to live in North Scottsdale. Grayhawk has fantastic golf courses with views of the McDowell Mountains and Pinnacle Peak. Young families, as well as retirees, flourish in this incredible area.


Further in North Scottsdale, the Troon Village is another golf community that sits on about 1400 acres. Home choices range from townhomes to semi-custom and custom homes. It is a quiet and tranquil area. If you love golf, you cant beat living in Troon.


Silverleaf has beautiful homes and sits in the canyons in North Scottsdale at the base of the McDowell Mountains. It is a very private community with custom homes tucked into little enclaves.

There are many other communities closer into central Scottsdale like McDowell Mountain Ranch or DC ranch that should also be considered. And if you are looking for more condo style living, the Scottsdale Waterfront area is in the center of town close to restaurants and shopping.


Golf is one of the biggest tourism drivers here in Arizona, and why not with the gorgeous weather we have for nine months out of the year. And, don’t think that the heat deters the hardy! I have seen foursomes out playing at 3 pm when it is 110 degrees outside.

Scottsdale is a great area to have a vacation home, or to own property and rent it out. Just be sure to speak with your insurer to be sure you have the proper coverage. My suggestion is to get a home close to the shopping areas and the resorts. There are several options near Fashion Square Mall and the Scottsdale Quarter that provide food and entertainment with proximity to several golf resorts.
