real estate market: Buyers and Investors: A lot of great opportunities out there! - 07/31/07 11:00 AM
We have spent a lot of time in the past week or so working with home buyers, primarily in Desert Ridge, North Phoenix and Scottsdale.  With an MLS lockbox on a home, the listing agent can look up who showed their listing and when.  Often times, they will call us for feedback - much as we do when other agents show our listings.  It's a great way to get a feel for how the public and other professionals view your pricing, home condition, and other factors that go into selling a home.

real estate market: Market predictions from the nation's biggest lender - 06/24/07 09:03 AM
We gained some great insight this week at our office meeting for RE/MAX Excalibur.  Our broker shared with us some statistics he gained at a conference, hosted by Countrywide Home Loans - the largest mortgage lender in the nation. 
Countrywide shared with the group that in the past 4 months, foreclosures are up 100% across the nation - with California, Nevada, and Arizona leading the pack.  Still, Countrywide had forecasted this 'bust', and prepared for it.  They are in no danger of closing up shop.
