yavapai county: FSBO Seller says Bring Me a Buyer, I will Cooperate - 07/07/16 12:39 PM
As an Agent in Prescott, Yavapa County, Arizona, I sometimes run across Sellers who do not want to list their property but insist on selling it themselves. I don't think that works very well.
This week one such Seller told me she would pay 3% Buyer-side commission on a nice parcel of vacant land. I have plenty of listings for vacant land with commissions set at 10% or sometimes more.  
Here are some reasons why I cannot help this Seller:
I sell 80 to 90 percent of my own land listings and therefore make 10% on most. I also sell a significant … (8 comments)

yavapai county: Wow! Really Rewarding Agreement and EASY Negotiation - 11/17/15 02:10 PM
Another Agent in my office (there are only three of us) asked me to advertise his really unique listing. He offered to pay me a referral fee just to help advertise it. His motivation was just to help a widow lady get her home sold quickly. I wrote a blog post advertising the listing.  Here is a link to the virtual tour.  The home is on 5.26 acres and is totally remote and off-grid.  There are TWO stoves in the kitchen. One is a wood cookstove and us used often by the Seller. This stove has it's own woodshed absolutely filled with … (4 comments)

In the Prescott Area MLS there is a designation for "Recreation and Pines Areas." These are areas adjacent to and surrounded by The Prescott National Forest.

All of these areas are mostly steep mountainsides and are covered with Ponderosa Pine Trees. The neighborhoods listed here are outside the city limits of Prescott but within the boundary of Yavapai County.

yavapai county: Open Space and Private Land in the Prescott Area of Yavapai County, AZ - 03/03/13 02:40 AM
One of the challenges that I sometimes have is with Potential Buyers who may move here from states mostly to the east of Arizona. Many of them have expectations that land costs/prices will be similar to those where they presently are. Prescott is a PREMIUM place to live. Most - over 80% of the land in Yavapai County - is Public Land.
Prescott is bounded on the south and west by the Prescott National Forest. Here is a map that shows the land use in the Prescott Area within Yavapai County.

In this map, the yellow shows privately held land. … (0 comments)

yavapai county: Seligman's Shadow Rock Ranch, Seclusion in the Trees at 6,200 ft - 03/01/13 02:21 AM
Shadow Rock Ranch is seven remote sections of land west and south of Seligman, Arizona. It was developed in three phases of lots of 36 or more acres each. Most of the lots are heavily treed with numerous Juniper and Pinion Pine trees. Many have bluffs and rock outcroppings.  I believe that Shadow Rock Ranch was named for this rock.

Access to the area is via Interstate Highway 40 at exit 109, south on … (0 comments)

Lynx Lake is one of the largest and most popular lakes in the Prescott Area.

This photo was taken from the Overlook near the Lynx Lake Cafe. There is a nice hiking trail that runs all the way around the lake. This trail is often close on the east side to protect Bald Eagles that nsometimes nest there.

Here is the "Welcome" sign at Lynx Lake. Note that Lynx Lake was built by the Fish and Game Department using fishing license money. I think this lake is the best fishing in the Prescott Area. It also has campgrounds … (2 comments)

yavapai county: Droid Pictures of Antelope Families near Prescott [Seligman], AZ - 06/09/12 04:40 PM
Last week, as I was returning from showing property near Seligman and before returning to my home in Prescott, I passed by a herd of Pronghorn Antelopes. Up until this time, I had only seen full-grown Pronghorn Antelope in Yavapai County.

After seeing this, I conclude that Pronghorn Antelope appear to remain in families. There are several herds of Pronghorn near Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley and Seligman, Arizona. I see them on almost every trip from Prescott to Chino Valley and when I go to the area around Long Meadow Ranch north of Prescott.
These pictures were taken … (2 comments)

yavapai county: Searching MLS Records by County Assessor Book Number - 05/09/12 06:31 AM
Yavapai County, Arizona is one of the largest counties in the whole country. Our Prescott Area Association of Realtors (PAAR) MLS is divided into areas. However, I find it expeditious that one can also search by the Yavapai County Assessor's Book numbers. For example, most of the properties in Prescott Valley have Assessor's Numbers in the form 103-##-###*.  In Dewey-Humboldt and on the east side of Prescott Valley the Assessor's Numbers will be 401-##-###*.
In north Prescott (pronounced "Preskitt" to rhyme with Biscuit), the Book Numbers will be 105-##-###* or 106-##-###*. The number of homes in each of these are fewer … (0 comments)
