Terravita Real Estate


Terravita: Real Estate at Its Best in Scottsdale Arizona

Terravita Voted Best Master Planned Community AND  Best Private Golf Club by Ranking Arizona

Terravita is one of Scottsdale, Arizona’s premier real estate developments. Terravita was created by real estate developer Del Webb beginning in late 1993 and was their first non-age restricted community. I, Scott Gaertner, was the number one real estate broker for new home sales, selling more Terravita homes than anyone, $66 million in sales. No one knows Terravita real estate better than I do and I am ready to help you buy or sell. If that sounds like bragging, remember I am applying for a job as your Realtor!

The Terravita gated planned community consists of 823 acres with a wide range of home and lot sizes complimented by excellent amenities including an 18 hole championship golf course, clubhouse facilities with dining, a swim and tennis center, a health and fitness center and a community wide 6 mile long system of jogging and walking trails.

Terravita golf and the Terravita Golf & Country Club are of great interest to many buyers. The golf course at Terravita was created by PGA Hall of Fame member Billy Casper and designer Greg Nash, whose name is synonymous with beautiful, playable golf courses that provide fun, fair challenges to players of all abilities while blending seamlessly with their natural surroundings. The Terravita golf course is an excellent example of Greg’s design skills. Terravita Country Club amenities include a pro shop, a large driving range, and three separate areas to practice chipping and putting.

Real estate in the Terravita community includes a wide range of homes with great floor plans suitable for everyone from larger families to couples looking for a part time or retirement residence. You can see all of theTerravita home floor plans here.

One of the features of Terravita real estate compared to some other developments in the Scottsdale, Arizona area is the overall development design which maximizes the natural beauty of the high Sonoran desert while minimizing things man made. Terravita real estate meets or exceeds the Scottsdale, Arizona Environmentally Sensitive Land Ordinance.  Whenever I am asked what Terravita’s very best feature is, my answer is always the folks who live here. They are an extremely health conscious, fun group of unpretentious folks, who enjoy an incredibly active lifestyle with like minded friends and neighbors.





  July 1, 2014 Terravita Market Update


The Terravita real estate market has reached half time and at this point, the score is a mixed bag. I will get the actual mid-year stats out to you soon, but for now you should know that it has been a very interesting year. There is good news and not so great news.

People always like to start with the bad first, so the not so great news is that when you compare the number of homes sold in the first 6 months of 2013 to the number sold in 2014, the number is down significantly. Around 35% lower and that is also about 35% lower than in 2012.

The good news is when you compare the same period this year to last, the average price per foot increased by about 15% this year!  That is really impressive when you factor in that valley wide demand for homes dropped at almost unprecedented levels last fall. When demand drops, so should price. But Terravita has a number of reasons why that doesn’t necessarily happen, the largest being that it is still the best value in North Scottsdale! 


Here are the June 2014 Terravita Real Estate Market’s statistics:



  $221  Average price per foot
 $252  Highest price per foot
 $179  Lowest price per foot

* The term "Homes under contract" is to say that these listings "sold" but they have not necessarily closed escrow. Most are still in various stages of the inspection process.
