phoenix realtor: No One Likes Delays, Especially When Buying a Home - 07/03/17 04:21 PM
My plane was delayed recently while traveling recently to see my daughter in Texas.   The reason for the delay was a broken armrest. WHAAAAT!!  How could that delay a flight?  It's typical to think of bad weather or mechanical issues when planes are delayed - not arm rests!   I guess repairmen take up space for boarding.  No one likes delays, especially when buying a home!
The buying public expects good service or they'll move on to another provider.   Whether you’re waiting at the doctor’s office or at a checkout counter, no one really likes waiting for very long for anything, nor if … (5 comments)

phoenix realtor: How to Get the Best Price & Terms in a Real Estate Sale - 05/27/17 05:34 PM
When negotiating real estate sales, price is very important, but so are terms and conditions. Just because you can “net” the best price, doesn’t necessarily mean you have the best net outcome.

phoenix realtor: Who are Tomorrow's Home Buyers? - 08/08/16 09:31 AM
If you're like most folks, you've already read that there are fewer home buyers under the age of 30 than in years past.  But exactly how many fewer?  
According to this graph, the number in the population under the age of 20 has dropped by at least 35%. 

Interesting comparison that shows we are  having fewer babies and that the number of baby boomers is more than any time in history.  This also reflects the multi-general housing needs as generations of family members are living together.
