arizona elite properties: KISS my WHAT?! - 09/21/23 12:51 PM
KISS my WHAT?!   Believe it or not, the concept of KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) was coined by the U.S. Navy as part of their systems goals. In design school, the same phrase became a desired result to be gained by avoiding the overly-complicated.   My professor told me that people in business prefer an informed, straight forward approach, rather than sugar-coating or beating around the bush to prove a point. That advice stuck and determines how I continue to practice.   "So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who … (3 comments)

arizona elite properties: Mortgage Rates: Past, Present, and Possible Future - 09/20/23 06:01 AM

If you’re hoping to buy a home this year, you’re probably paying close attention to mortgage rates. Since mortgage rates impact what you can afford when you take out a home loan – and affordability is a challenge today – it’s a good time to look at the big picture of where mortgage rates have been historically compared to where they are now. Beyond that, it’s important to understand their relationship with inflation for insights into where mortgage rates might go in the near future.

arizona elite properties: Did You Miss Wife Appreciation Day? It's Not Too Late! - 09/19/23 02:11 PM

Did you know the third Sunday of September is/was Wife Appreciation Day?  One can combine appreciation for one's wife by integrating this celebration some other fun food and drink "holidays" in this time frame, including National String Cheese Day, National Pepperoni Pizza Day, National Punch Day and National Fried Rice Day. 
This date specifically honors wives amongst couples who have no children. Not every woman is a mother, either by chance or choice. Since so many holidays celebrate families with children, (such as Mother's Day), Wife Appreciation Day offers a time to honor married women who are childless. 
Couples may celebrate the day traditionally … (4 comments)

arizona elite properties: What if We Are Living in a Simulation? - 09/17/23 11:42 AM
Have you ever wondered if the reality we perceive is actually real, or just a sophisticated illusion created by a higher power? This is the question that many philosophers, scientists, and thinkers have pondered for centuries. It is also the premise of many popular movies, books, and games, such as The Matrix, Inception, and The Sims.
The idea that we are living in a simulation is not as far-fetched as it may seem. In fact, some experts have argued that it is more likely than not that we are living in a simulated world. One of them is Nick Bostrom, a … (3 comments)

arizona elite properties: Does That Perfect House Exist? - 09/16/23 12:16 PM
Finding properties for a buyer when inventory is low to non-existent has been a real challenge. Finding a perfect home-even more of a challenge.
I have been working with this buyer for a year or more.  Her desires in a home are specific, and she does not deviate.
Her wish list is in Baltimore County, with an easy commute to her studio.  It has to be pristine (if not brand new) and finished to move in immediately.  Public water and gas cooking is a must.

Loving the look of the soft greys and whites and lots of light, she … (5 comments)
