Although Scottsdale has dropped from last years number 5 spot to this year’s number 7, it is still a great place to live in the Phoenix area. It was moved back a smidge because the violent crime rate increased by 1.5 percent which was driven mostly by more robbery and aggravated assault numbers. We don’t see this as much of an increase and does not affect the majority of the area. As there was in Chandler, there are also great neighborhoods and homes in Scottsdale. Take a look at what we have available in Scottsdale.
