million dollar listings: Don't Sell Hot Summers Short - 05/06/18 01:03 PM
Everyone knows it gets hot in Scottsdale in the summer.  Many people in trying to sell their luxury home in the valley believe that summer is the time to give your listing a siesta and take it off the market.  The thinking is, who wants to be looking at houses when the mercury is above 110 degrees (even if it is a dry heat). Additionally, since our snowbird populations evaporates during the summer months, the buyer population decreases.  

Well, it turns out this just isn’t the case.  We examined the past three years of sales activity on homes in three key … (2 comments)

million dollar listings: "Showing" Respect - 01/23/18 05:56 AM
I've had several experiences with agents lately that got me thinking about the lack of commons sense and courtesy by some in our field. Last week an agent came to an Open House with her clients. It was a new home, so visitors were asked to remove their shoes or wear booties. She walked in and said, that she was not going to put them on. I told her that to tour the home she had to do so, so she turned to her client and said, "We're leaving, and walked out in a huff rudely shouting, "you just lost a … (10 comments)

million dollar listings: Finding The Perfect Garage For the Batmobile - 01/13/18 07:35 AM
This is a big weekend in Scottsdale.  The Barrett-Jackson car auction opens today which is followed shortly by the Russo-Steele car auction.  If you are in the Scottsdale area and have never experienced one of these shows, you must go.  It is an amazing event with every kind of car imaginable on the auction block.  A few years ago they even auctioned off the original Batmobile from the 1960’s era show, which sold for $4.2 Million (and with all the modifications it is not even legal to drive it anywhere).
Thousands of car aficionados flock to Scottsdale each January in search of … (4 comments)

million dollar listings: The Changing Face of Luxury Real Estate - 12/28/17 08:34 AM
The following article is an excerpt from our 20 page Luxury Property Report. The entire report is available by visiting our report page.
Shifting demographics will lead to some long-term changes in the luxury market. The customer for these properties is changing, and with this change comes the need for a different kind of property. 
These new customers are comprised of high-earning millennials, and their interests and uses in a property differ from previous generations. They look for less square footage (according to one builder we spoke with, 5,500 square feet is the sweet spot). They want more open floorplans and less space … (11 comments)
