Anne Morrissey and her partners with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services have been showing a variety potential buyers around Desert Mountain, an 8,000-acre community in north Scottsdale.

"People from Nevada, people from California, people from Australia, people from New York, the Midwest," she said.

While their backgrounds vary, Morrrissey said most seem interested in high-end contemporaries, which she describes as having unique architecture, open spaces and a lot of glass to show off gorgeous views. And, all are drawn to the lifestyle offered in the luxury community.

"We have six Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses, hiking and biking trails, a spa and fitness center and restaurants," she said. "You can be busy 24/7 should you choose."

Sitting in house priced at approximately $4 million, Morrissey said current interest seems to be among the low and high-end homes. 

“The lowest price on the market is in the $600,000's, and it goes up to $8.5 million," she said.

The season will slow down as temperatures heat up, but Morrissey said the monsoon season is never dry.

“People do come out in the summer to look for homes because they think they’re going to get a better deal because it’s summer," she said.

But, she said that doesn’t happen. Instead, they show off the infinity pools.
