The West’s Most Western Town

By Alyssa Mammano

Initially purchased as farmland and developed by its namesake, Scottsdale, Arizona originated from 640 acres of irrigated desert terrain. Winfield Scott, a notable U.S. Army Chaplain, envisioned a city of wealth and affluence when he placed a down payment on the property that would later become downtown Scottsdale. Scott enlisted many of the settlement’s first inhabitants, who were an educated and cultured people. Development of the scenic location was quickly underway shortly after its 1888 acquisition. Only eight years later a public school system was chartered. In the early 1900s a culture of artistry flourished as the newly established community celebrated local writers and creatives. Soon after, a tourism industry burgeoned with the erection of the colony’s first resorts: the Ingleside Inn in 1909 and the Jokake Inn in 1922. Continue reading

Best Cities to Buy a Home

By Alyssa Mammano

Earlier this year, Forbes released their full list of cities to invest in a primary residence or income property based on a survey by Local Market Monitor that tracks market trends in 300 major U.S. real estate markets.

Topping the list are several southern states, including our home state of Florida with two of its cities making the top ten. Another, perhaps surprising, top contender is Utah with several up-and-coming areas. Below we identify Forbes’ findings for the top ten cities to invest in housing this year. Continue reading
