south scottsdale real estate agent: 5-4-14 Real Estate Market Trend Report by Jim Miner @ South Scottsdale - 05/06/14 02:58 AM
This week ending 5-4-14 Real Estate Market Trend Report by Jim Miner @ South Scottsdale shows just how weak our real estate market in #SouthScottsdale and Maricopa County has been over the course of the last year.
As a Buyer or a Seller a weak real estate market should not be something to run from rather if one is properly equipped with the right tools a weak market often provides a window of opportunity.  The trap the Buyer typically falls into is the one of trying to pick a market bottom as well the Seller is always trying to pick a market top.  I have seen the two tools that buyers and sellers … (1 comments)

south scottsdale real estate agent: 4-20-14 South Scottsdale Real Estate Report by Jim Miner - 04/21/14 02:04 AM
Here is the 4-20-14 South Scottsdale Real Estate Report by Jim Miner, and this comes from the Cromford Report which is prepared by Michael Orr at Arizona State University.  This past week had a couple of interesting movements in the Maricopa County real estate market trend take place.
This past week the number of new listings (homes for sale) plunged over 5% to approx 2,360, this is significant because it means we are having a reduction in new inventory.  The long-term effect could very beneficial to Sellers because then there isn't as much pressure on the need to reduce the price (assuming the home was priced at the current market value).

south scottsdale real estate agent: Ahwatukee 3 Bed 2 Bath home in Silvercreek at 4738 E. Lavender Ln. AZ - 04/19/14 10:34 AM
"NO HOA" at this Ahwatukee 3 Bed 2 Bath home in Silvercreek at 4738 E. Lavender Ln. AZ.  The irony is this subdivision is surrounded by HOA governed communities.  When one drives through the Silvercreek area, there isn't any way to know that the community is not governed by a CC&R document.  The home is 1,386 sq.ft., single level, and has a tile roof.  If one is a first time home buyer or someone who will be using a FHA loan for the purchase of the property a HOA monthly payment of approx. $100 can have the additional home purchaseing power … (1 comments)

south scottsdale real estate agent: 4-18-14 Real Estate Report by Jim Miner the South Scottsdale Realtor - 04/19/14 08:46 AM
Did a   "Market Trend Bomb"    get dropped in the 4-18-14 Real Estate Report by Jim Miner the South Scottsdale Realtor?  Michael Orr, who prepares the Cromford Report (Maricopa County real estate market trend report) shows us two points in this mid-week report. 
The first point shows us the 29 cities that make up the index.  This index includes the major cities and the second tier cities.  Most of the second tier cities are what we call the out-lier cities.  Currently about half of the cities are showing a very modest increase in demand, whereas about half are showing a downward bias.  The major … (1 comments)

south scottsdale real estate agent: New Caulking and a New Drain helps a home sell faster - 04/16/14 06:16 AM
The small projects such as new caulking and a new drain helps a home sell faster, so you do not want to overlook them.  If you have lived in your home for awhile the chances are good that the caulking around your bath tub has turned a color which is different than the original crisp white.  Additionally, the drain will have become scared and discolored due to scouring and cleaning agents.  When you replace these two items the tub takes on a whole new look and the good news it is not expensive and does not require a plumber.
When you remove the old caulking make sure … (0 comments)

Sometimes it is possible an Older Home could have Lead Based Paint in South Scottsdale AZ since most of these homes were built before 1978.  Most of the homes in South Scottsdale were built before 1978, are single level, are slump block built, have asphalt shingle roofs, and are on bigger lots.  Over the past 10 years a number of these homes have been updated and refinished but not all of the homes have had their bath tubs replaced.  Almost all of the tubs that were installed at the original construction of the homes were made of cast iron.  Some of these cast iron tubs were painted with lead … (0 comments)

south scottsdale real estate agent: When selling your home do not install 2 different kinds of carpet - 04/02/14 05:14 AM
The Garage Office Realtor, Jim Miner, says Selling a Home with 2 kinds of Carpet in the same room is a bad idea.  I was out previewing homes in South Scottsdale the other day and I visited a home that was updated and for sale.  When I walked into the home, the first thing I noticed was new carpet had been installed.  The carpet was neutral in color and it went with the interior color scheme.  The room I was in was the living room, so I walked around to the other side of the fireplace into the family room and there it was, … (2 comments)
