6 Dos and Don’ts of Basement Home Improvement.
 
 
While we dont have too many basements in Scottsdale Arizona, or the surrounding ares, there are some. So heres a few qucik do's and dont's when it comes to basement improvement.

Selling your Scottsdale home is all about appealing to the market. You’re putting a product out there, so of course you have to take steps to make it appeal to your prospective customers. Some flaws are excusable: not having a fireplace in the living room, kitchen tiles that are slightly out of fashion, and so on. When your home has certain flaws, however, you’ve got to take steps to improve or downplay them – otherwise, they’ll send any sane home buyer dashing for the door.

Arizona Fall Colors.
 
 
Sunshine, great dining, and golden leaves: “Flag” is Arizona's capital of autumn. In fall, the air in Flagstaff is crisp, the skies are the dictionary definition of blue, and the return of 18,000 NAU students gives "Flag" a Red Bull–swigging, outdoorsy zing.
Explore the historic downtown or head to the hills for some seasonal hiking. Also, don't miss Coconino National Forest, located north of town, for the state's most spectacular aspens set against the backdrop of dormant volcano Humphreys Peak.

Room for Improvement: What’s Worth DIY, and What’s a Risk too Big to Take?
 
 
When you’re looking to buy a house, you won’t always find a place that satisfies every need on your home-buying checklist: in fact, it’s rarer to find a home that’s absolutely perfect. Homes that are a little bit imperfect can still be perfectly good buys, especially if the flaws can be fixed with a bit of DIY effort. However, you don’t want to sign yourself up for a long and grueling home improvement plan on top of your new mortgage. Some projects are a snap, while some are … (2 comments)

jeff fisher realtor: Thinking About Your Own Property as a Vacation Rental? - 08/12/16 06:18 AM

The rise of short-stay rental sites like Airbnb, VRBO and HomeAway is tempting homeowners to purchase vacation homes that will also generate income. For some, renting is a way to recoup some costs of a second home purchased primarily for family fun. Others do the math and find it makes sense to rent full time or close to full time. Rental income can also defray the cost of improvements if the second home is a fixer upper, says Brian Sharples, CEO of HomeAway, which has more than 1.2 million paid listings in 190 countries.

jeff fisher realtor: What to Look for in a Home When You’ve Got Furry Friends - 08/08/16 06:09 AM

Shopping for a new Scottsdale home is complicated enough when you’re dealing with humans. When you start factoring in your family members from the animal kingdom (no, we’re not talking about your Cousin Howard), things can start to get a little bit hairy. Will your yard meet your dog’s tastes? Is there enough space indoors for your cat to roam? With pets, you have to take these questions and more into consideration, just as you would with human roommates.
Is Your Pet Welcome?
Buying a house is certainly much different than renting. You make the rules, so no more strict guidelines on whether … (3 comments)
