Ballpark numbers - from $2-5/SF removal, depending on how well it sticks and what it is set in - mastic, thinset, or thinset over mortar bed, or straight mortar - thinset over drywall or greenboaqrd is usually cheapest, followed by mastic, then mortar bed installation. Floors are also cheaper than walls. Installation - $5-10/SF plus cost of tile (which is just less than $1/SF on up), with larger tiles on the cheapest end, then sheet mosaics, then individual squares, then individual mosaics. Wall tile tends to be about $1-3/SF more expensive than floor, both because it is on the vertical but also because is usually larger expanses, so higher prep and labor cost per square foot. The most expensive (can be over $10/SF installation) is detailed patterns, especially if a lot of cuts, most especially if rounded cuts are needed. Simple alternation of a couple of tiles or a random pattern does not cost a lot more than regualr setting, just detailed patterns, particularly if making a picture so require a lot of cuts. Since you said 1200 SF, I certainly assume you are talking mostly floor, so unless fancy patterns of tiles, likely to be closer to the lower end of the ranges given than top, especially since the mortar bed (if present) can likely be reused if intact and properly done originally. However, Scottsdale is a high-end area, so you might not see the lowet price you would normally expect in a cheap labor area like Arizona.
