Old Town Scottsdale & South Scottsdale

South Scottsdale may be just the ticket to your dream.

Welcome to South Scottsdale

While many of the residents have lived in the area for several decades, more and more business professionals and adult college students are choosing South Scottsdale as their home.

If you're looking for a home in a centrally located residential community, South Scottsdale may be just the ticket to your dream. Roughly boundaried from McKellips Road north to Thomas Road on the south, this neighborhood is home to several major employers and is surrounded by grassy parks with upscale shopping and a bustling nightlife nearby. Along with close proximity to freeway access for business commuters and students, this newly revitalized, diverse and family-friendly area offers affordable housing and an unbeatable lifestyle.

With easy accessibility to the Loop 101 Pima Freeway and the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway, South Scottsdale residents benefit from the area's short commute to downtown Phoenix, Arizona State University and Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
