Scottsdale is known as a luxury destination for jet setters the world over. For those who love the warmth of the sun and the natural splendor of the desert landscape, this affluent Arizona community offers everything and more for a marvelous holiday. From world-class shopping and dining to year-round outdoor recreation, this vibrant locale rivals anywhere else on the planet.
But more than just a vacation spot, Scottsdale is a place that many globetrotters also call home…or, for some, a home away from home. In fact, Scottsdale is among the most sought-after communities in Arizona’s luxury market for primary residences and second homes. If you’re looking in Arizona, this is where you want to be.
But, if you’re also thinking about an exotic locale for travel or an investment home, Auckland, New Zealand is one of the hottest luxury real estate markets in the world. Based on a Christie’s International Real Estate survey in 2016, Auckland “posted an incredible 63 percent growth in million-dollar plus (real estate) sales thanks to strong international and local demand.” This put Auckland over the top of the previous year’s top-ranking market, Toronto.
Like Scottsdale, Auckland offers an abundance of natural beauty. Known for black-sand beaches and secluded bays, Auckland is a water lover’s dream. Relaxing and playing along the coast is de rigueur in Auckland, as is soaking up the lovely southern hemisphere sunshine. And, of course, when it comes to luxury real estate, the homes are extravagant and the ocean views are expansive.
When it comes down to it, it might be hard to choose between buying a luxury home in Scottsdale or Auckland. Both offer the best of the best. But who says you have to choose? A place among the rich colors of the desert lifestyle in Scottsdale and another along the coastal waters of Auckland can satisfy your desire for it all.
