Came here for this. Scottsdale is like a big mall for geezer yuppies surrounded by a gigantic parking lot. You couldn't pay me to live there.

Sure, your $5 bid may win, as long as you can qualify to bid by proving you can afford a $7,000,000 house.

Dahnkster: Harry Freakstorm: But it's in Arizona.

Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner. Would like to thank all the other contestants who participated.

Sheriff Joe voted in multiple times. (80% support for a man that boasted he spent more money on feeding the dogs than the inmates) Desert heat so oppressive that the gravel blisters your feet... Heat so miserable and stifling that you instantly regret the moment you get out to pump your gas. Angry old people that migrated away from the good states. The majority of voters that claim that they really don't hate brown people but vote for candidates that are elected primarily on the basis of their success in reminding those same voters just how terrible brown people are. Seriously, Jan Farking Brewer? Teacher shortages that seem to only get worse. Mormon polygamy spin-off cults that marry children under 12.

I realize I'm painting with a pretty wide brush, but I'm sorry if facts lean towards my side. i could make the same claim about any number of places I'd never choose to live in or plans as a vacation destination (See also Alabama, Oklahoma, Utah, Kansas, Mississippi, and most of Louisiana)

Sure, I know everyone loves that amazing natural wonder of the world's most beautiful giant hole...
but I don't want to keep piling on about Jan Brewer's gaping maw.

Oh f*ck off.

Has anyone mentioned property taxes yet?  They have?  OK, well you'll have to live in Snottsdale, so there's that.

The $6,999,995 HOA fee is something to consider though.

Perrybucsdad: You may have the $20, but what about the huge property tax bill?

Just petition the county to reassess the property at its purchase price.  Problem solved!

This is Scottsdale. The air conditioning bill is larger than the property tax one.

Around here, that gets you one year.  Then the county starts jacking the assessment up, saying your property is constantly increasing in value.  Within a few years, it's valued way, way, way over what you could sell for.  Then you default on the taxes, and the county has a nice property to auction.
