Attention! Scottsdale is in the spotlight and is featured on HGTV! The show is House Hunters and the couple who star in it are from California looking for a new place they can call home.
Sarah and Blake are in Scottsdale looking for their dream home. In the show they feature three properties that Sarah and Blake are most interested in. They have a budget of $550,000 to $600,000 that they are willing to spend and it is the real estate agents job to find them the perfect house.
These two have a wish list and would like to see these amenities included in the house. They include: a gas stove, updated kitchen, yard with grassy area, 3 car garage, office, large bath tub, and a community with amenities and parks. Being allergic to cats, Sarah would like a home where cats were nonexistent.
The first home they visit is in the DC Ranch and the asking price is $675,000. It is a little over their budget but it includes many of the amenities on the wish list except the fact that cats have lived in the home previously. Besides that, they loved the community, the park across the street, and that it included many of the features on their wish list.
The second home they look at is in the Ironwood Village area. Although it is a much cheaper asking price, $525,000, there needs to be a lot of updating and the neighborhood is missing the amenities on their wish list. They like that it is cheaper and they could use the extra money to update the home.
The final home the look at is in McDowell Mountain Ranch. This home is $557,000, also under budget. This home lacks many of the features they are looking for. It is not a 3 car garage, no room to play, and the pool needs repair. They do like area and what it has to offer.
Read on to see what the couple chose.
As the market is on an upswing the realtor encouraged them to make a decision as soon as they are ready. They made the decision of going with the DC Ranch home. They picked this one, although over budget, because it had everything they wanted. With new carpet added, they are thrilled with their decision.
