arizonas realty: Things to Do in Scottsdale - 05/14/18 12:58 PM
When The New York Times’ once described Scottsdale as being “a desert version of Miami’s South Beach” it forgot to mention that the town is best known for being “The West’s Most Western Town” too.

Its population of 230,500, as of 2014, has been keeping busy with all of them, so let’s find out what’s going on!

arizonas realty: 5 CRITERIA FOR PRICING A HOME - 04/25/18 08:49 AM

When you put your home up for sale, one of the best ways to determine the asking price is to look at comparable sales. There’s rarely a perfect apples-to-apples comparison, so a pricing decision often relies on comparisons to several recent sales in the area. Here are five criteria to look for in a sales comparison.
Location: Homes in the same neighborhood typically follow the same market trends. Comparing your home to another in the same neighborhood is a good start, but comparing it to homes on the same street or block is even better.
Date of sale: It varies by location, but … (0 comments)

arizonas realty: How to Choose Social Media for Your Content - 01/04/18 07:22 AM

This week I'll share my thoughts on what social media channels realtors should choose to post their content.
Since each social media channel is different, it is important to optimize content accordingly. For example, let’s say you just wrote a blog on “Open Houses” as well as created a video about open houses and now you want to share this content on social media.
Since Facebook is very picture heavy and optimized for video, you would want to upload the video natively to your post and then share the link to the blog in the “post” section. Remember to keep the post copy short and sweet!

Have a buddy system.

arizonas realty: 4 Hardwood Flooring Tips for your Phoenix Home - 11/13/17 07:17 AM

Hardwood flooring is often equated to the older homes of the Midwest and the East Coast. Much of their structural design reflects a timeless, strong, resilient and traditional time period.
Here in the wild, wild Southwest our architecture is newer and more modern, usually portraying a ranch-style or adobe/stucco look, with geometric designs and clean lines.
Even though Arizona is one of the younger states in the union, we still reach for a little tradition every now and again. Our climate has always stretched builders and architects to think outside of the box as they try to create aesthetic appeal in a design … (3 comments)

arizonas realty: Are You Using Social Media to Market? - 11/09/17 07:02 PM

Do you know the percentage of realtors that use social media to market their listings?
NO WAY ONLY 9%? I almost didn’t believe this one either. The audience for home buying wants and craves images of potential homes for them, as well as immediate answers to their questions.
So why haven’t agents delivered on a consistent basis? Social media is an ideal platform for Business to Consumer institutions like real estate agents because it opens the door for real-time conversation.
For example, say an agent posts an album of a newly-listed home. They can also include a quick description of the property and maybe … (0 comments)

arizonas realty: Millennials in the Market - 10/06/17 10:23 AM

There’s no shortage of articles covering Millennials. Their habits in the worlds of entertainment, retail, community engagements and so many other areas of society have been studied and dissected with sharp focus over the past several years. While some may think it’s a topic that’s been covered enough, I see new trends developing.
As with every generation before, Millennials are growing older and their needs are evolving, including their real estate and home loan needs. Keeping a close eye on who Millennials are and their current needs helps me (as well as my business partners) prepare to provide them service beyond belief. [Have … (0 comments)

Is your home ready for sale from the inside out? Most home owners know that interior staging is essential to selling a home quickly and for the most profit, but too many home owners don’t think to expand their staging vision to the outdoors.
Your home needs to be appealing to buyers the moment they set foot on the curb – hence, the term “curb appeal”.
Sure, we’re told not to judge a book by its cover, but making that excellent first impression on a buyer is often key to making a sale. Maximizing your home’s curb appeal goes by many of the … (0 comments)

arizonas realty: Drones for Real Estate Listings - 09/18/17 09:10 AM

Considering using a drone? 
Marketing a real estate property is one of the most difficult things to do in business today.  The competition is brutal, partly because online listings generate most of the leads. Almost every property buyer today begins their search online.  So, it can be really hard to stand out from the pack.
Using drones for real estate photography will become increasingly common now that it’s easier for real estate agents to operate them, or vendors are abundant offering thier services. No matter what rules are in place, using drones will spark some degree of controversy, but there’s no rebottling that genie. Now that … (1 comments)

This graphic analyzes the activity for single-family homes in the Scottsdale luxury resale market. 
Almost the whole market is humming along with all cylinders firing. However there is little sign that it is going to move up a gear from here… We are at a point where the seller remains in firm control but the seller’s advantage is no longer growing stronger. Whether that brings any significant relief to buyers I very much doubt, because we are entering the period, from early May to early October, when active listing counts tends to fall back, leaving even less supply for them to choose from. … (0 comments)
