Phoenix Vacation Rental to Be Waiting for a Buyer

Just take a moment and enjoy that view …

Doesn’t necessarily seem like it’s Phoenix, does it?

Rather than the mountains or ubiquitous cacti, imagine waking up with a view of the lush, verdant grounds of Phoenix’s Japanese Friendship Gardens.

Contrast that with the view up north in the winter … ice where the water is, snow covering the grass, the bitter chill of winter waiting outside the arcadia door.

Going to tell me this kind of property wouldn’t make a tremendous winter vacation rental?

Portland Place is the result of the short-lived boom in Phoenix loft living back in 2004-05, though this particular property wasn’t constructed until 2007 – the perfect real estate example of the right idea at exactly the wrong time.

What once was for sale just north of $400,000 now is available at about half that. And unlike when it was constructed, there’s now light rail service waiting just outside Portland Place’s front door to take your winter visitors into downtown for dinner at the Arrogant Butcher or into Tempe to a night out on Mill Avenue.
