Always consider renting a home in Scottsdale, especially if you are looking to rent short-term. Although there are hotels scattered throughout the city, renting a home is generally a more private experience for you and your guests. Room service may not be an option, but renting a home gives you access to those everyday amenities that you are accustomed to.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW…..

Finding a rental home can be quite simple. For example, my team can provide you with a list of current homes for rent in the neighborhood of your choice. Factors that affect the price of a rental home include location, square footage, amenities, and the length of stay. Lease terms vary to accommodate weekend stays as well as longer extended vacations. To apply for a rental home a Realtor can submit a lease application on your behalf. Here is a small checklist of information you may be required to provide at the time of application:

– Credit Score/Credit Check

– Current pay stubs

– Deposit

– Employer Information

– Rental History/ References

WHERE TO RENT ?…..

There are many desirable neighborhoods in Scottsdale, but here are a few of the most popular:

“Oldtown” Scottsdale (South Scottsdale) is known as the center of the city’s nightlife district. There are dozens of restaurants, bars, place for shopping and museums. Almost everything is in walking distance or you could also take the free “Old-Town” Trolley.

McCormick Ranch is Scottsdale’s self-proclaimed “premier master-planned community.” With twenty-five miles of bicycle trails and ten lakes that allow for permitted boating and fishing, there are definitely plenty of different ways to spend the day relaxing or enjoying the outdoors. Perhaps the most popular feature is the McCormick Ranch Golf Club, which is open 365 days a year. www.MccormickRanchGolf.com

WHEN IS A GOOD TIME TO VISIT ?

The sunshine makes Scottsdale a destination year round, but there are many events throughout the year that attract tourism. The holiday season is attractive and the NCAA’s Tostito’s Bowl bring visitors and fans. In February, a second surge of tourism gets kicked off with the Waste Management Open PGA Tour golf tournament, which is quickly followed by March’s month long Cactus League, or better known as Spring Training. Moreover, fifteen Major League Baseball teams call Phoenix home for Spring Training and there are usually between five to seven games daily through April. www.CactusLeague.com
The rest of the year Scottsdale is also home to numerous business travelers, tourists, convention attendees and even locals who are looking to relax at any of the breathtaking resorts and golf courses that the city has to offer.
