chandler: Phoenix Announced In Top 10 Places to Buy Rental Properties - 06/27/12 04:32 PM
The Phoenix Metro Area – which includes Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Tempe, Ahwatukee, and of course, Phoenix itself – has turned into an investor’s ideal market. Many homes in the market have been purchased by investors all across the world as they took advantage of low housing prices brought in the wake of the housing bubble.

Demand is expected to remain somewhat constant for the remainder of the year. Our economy has also started (1 comments)

Aspiring home buyers who are looking for a steal are out – the sellers are no longer accepting lowball offers. Instead of using the original offer as a negotiation tool, buyers are often surprised when the response to their low offers is a flat-out “no”. So what offer is considered too low?

Gone is the 2008-09 market with desperate sellers, and buyers who are still looking for those ‘steals’ are out (1 comments)
