Tempe Bargain at $92.5 Million? - 06/28/08 01:23 PM
I was a little surprised that SunCor decided to sell one of their two office towers at Hayden Ferry Lakeside to New York based Sumitomo corp. While some of the projects in and around the Mill Avenue District have been delayed, canceled or had different "financing issues" come up, the Hayden Ferry project is one that seems to have it all. Great location, great views, easy access to freeways, the airport and the upcoming light rail line etc.. The project is a wonderful mix of commercial and residential uses. The commercial building that has been sold has a decent tenant in Smith Barney. (3 comments)
Hey Nick, Why do you blog? - 06/28/08 09:48 AM
So, what is with this blogging thing, anyway? I began blogging about a year and a half ago.

Currently, the percentage of agents that have a blog is very small but I promise you, that percentage has begun to change. My clients (7 comments)
Tempe property values and a good Transit System.. - 06/05/08 10:47 PM
We all know that location is a big part of determining a properties "value." In today's paper, there is an article titled "Chandler may expand bus route from Tempe." Part of the article says.. "According to a transportation study released earlier this year, more than 60,000 people travel between central Chandler and Tempe every day for school, business, shopping or dining" With gas at four bucks a gallon, many commuters are taking the bus or even biking to work. In communities where this is possible, I believe you will see much higher appreciation, in the near term than other parts of the (7 comments)
Gardening - a new "trend" in residential real estate? - 06/04/08 10:50 AM
Funny how some topics tend to pop up in abundance every once in a while. For me, the topic of gardening has been raised by more than a few people lately. Recently, I spoke with some friends in Scottsdale that have been growing vegetables, herbs etc in their back yard. With the rising price of fruits and vegetables, it seems like they are probably not alone. The reasons for gardening can be many. From saving a few bucks to enjoying a hobby to doing your part in "saving the earth." My uncle is president of a local gardening club so I occasionally get (5 comments)
