Recently, I had the good fortune of working with a repeat home buyer purchasing a rental home here in Scottsdale.  He was looking for a basic three bedroom, two bathroom home that would make a good rental.  It didn't take us long before we found a great single level home in a good area of mid-Sco...
Excellent information by James White!  Very good information about building supplies that might be toxic to our environment.  Read and comment on his post please.   Another resource here in Phoenix is Stardust Building Supply.  They, like Habitat for Humanity, resell used building materials.  Plu...
I read a post by Patricia Kennedy about a low appraisal and felt compelled to write a new post on appraisals.  While volunteering for the Residential Green Building Council, US Green Building Council, Arizona Chapter, I helped to host appraisal courses.   While the courses were about adding value...

It's election day and all kinds of emails are flying into my inbox.  Facebook is filled with a kind of agreed upon acceptance of what will be, will be.  Of course there are those that will challenge the results, but that's another story for another day.   One of the emails I just received looked ...
Seeing beautiful places has got to be on a bucket list.  It's been a while since I was able to see such beauty.  I only hope that my simple photography skills will relay how captivating Vancouver and the surrounding area truly are in it's awesome splendor!   Travelling to Vancouver 5 times this s...
There is a lot of sizzle in real estate advertising these days.  Probably because there are a lot of new features and designs to entice home buyers.  New innovations in appliances, advancements in smart home systems and new materials and colors in homes are raising the bar for both new and resale...
