Pitchers and catchers reported last month, but if you’re a die-hard baseball fan, the idea of possibly catching your favorite Cactus League team during spring training every year is actually attainable – especially if you factor in the potential for entering the short-term rental market when you’re not using your pad.
The Cactus League, which gets its name from its desert environs in Arizona, consists of 15 teams – including the Texas Rangers – that play in communities around Phoenix.’
To find an ideal home, we looked around the towns of Surprise, Glendale, Scottsdale, and Tempe, and only at condos and townhomes, which will come closer to providing a lock-and-leave environment, and ease of short-term rental market entry.
Get In On the Ground Floor In Surprise
This spacious three-bedroom, two-bath corner unit means your family could go make a weekend of it, but it’s also idea for groups of friends. The community pool means you have a great way to cool off after a day of baseball.
Go Fore Glendale
Man (or woman) cannot live by baseball alone, so if you’re looking for a little more to do, this two-two in Glendale sits in the Arrowhead Lakes Country Club area. It’s close to shopping, the stadium, and entertainment, and has a community pool in addition to golf course access.
Seventies in the Sevens in Scottsdale
Want more space? This Scottsdale home was built in the 70s, and could use a bit of updating, but it is in the gated community of Sandpiper in McCormick Ranch. On a corner lot with golf course and mountain views, it boasts 12-foot ceilings, three-bedroom suites, plenty of entertaining space, and a private courtyard.
Tempe Luxury With Water Views
This two-bedroom, two-bath condo overlooks Tempe Town Lake, and has the views to prove it – including the lake, the mountains, and more. You have access to a heated pool, outdoor kitchen, movie theater, billiard room, gym, and club room, too.
