DC Ranch is one of the most sought-after communities in Scottsdale, featuring condominiums, townhomes and single-family, detached homes – but if you’re thinking about buying here, there are four tips that can make your search (and your eventual decision) easier.
4 Tips for Buying a Home for Sale in DC Ranch
Whether you already live in Scottsdale or you’re considering a move here from out of town, these four tips will simplify your home search and help you make the right decision.
DC Ranch Home-Buying Tip #1: Get Familiar With the Area
If you haven’t spent much time in DC Ranch, you need to know that this sprawling, gorgeous community is just northeast of Highway 101 at East Bell Road. The neighborhoods within the community are designed to accommodate homes of various sizes, ranging from cozy condos, townhomes and villas to massive estate homes.
DC Ranch is just outside the McDowell Mountain Regional Park, a few minutes south of Pinnacle Peak Park, and not far from Cave Buttes Recreation Area and the Phoenix Sonoran Preserve. There are several natural landmarks within a short drive, and the community is close to Central Scottsdale.
DC Ranch Home-Buying Tip #2: Search Smarter, Not Harder
Working with the right DC Ranch real estate agent can make your search a lot easier. You need to work with a Realtor® who knows each neighborhood within DC Ranch and who has had plenty of experience buying and selling in the area. Your Realtor can help weed out homes that aren’t a good fit for you, as well as zero in on those that are – and he or she can guide you toward the best possible (and most informed) decision.
DC Ranch Home-Buying Tip #3: Keep Track of the Homes You’ve Seen
When you’re touring homes in DC Ranch, bring the listing printouts with you. Your Realtor can provide them before you leave for a day out in the community.
Write down important features and things you want to remember about each home right on the printed-out listing. That way, you won’t lose track of what you liked – or didn’t like – about each house. Take your time walking through, and make your notes as thorough as possible. You’ll be able to use them to narrow down your choices and get closer to finding your dream home.
DC Ranch Home-Buying Tip #4: Take Your Time, but Hurry Up
It’s fine to take your time – after all, this is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. However, remember that if you fall in love with a house for sale in DC Ranch, chances are pretty good that someone else has, too. That means when you know you want a house, don’t waste time waiting to make an offer. Someone could beat you to it and buy the home right out from under you.
