cave creek: Is 12% worth avoiding a Realtor? - 10/20/18 02:37 PM
  
Over the past year companies like Open Door and OfferPad have made some inroads into the Phoenix real estate market. Small inroads (about 3% of total sales valley wide over the past year), but inroads nonetheless.
For those not familiar with Open Door and OfferPad, they are companies that promise to buy your home for "market price" and close within days, alleviating the stress and hassle of selling your home.  In turn, they then make any repairs/updates necessary and then list the home for sale themselves.
But here's the catch, the "fee" they charge to purchase your home ranges anywhere from 6-12% of … (2 comments)

cave creek: Average monthly temperatures in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area.... - 07/25/18 04:05 PM

 
Since I work a lot with out of state buyers, and Phoenix has a very hot reputation, I am often asked how hot it really gets during the summer months here.  So I compiled an average high temperature chart below to assist those thinking of moving to the Valley of the Sun.  As you can see, and as expected, the summer months are hot!  We live in a desert, so that makes sense.  But I can tell you truthfully, 100 degrees here feels a lot cooler than 100 degrees in most other areas of the country due to the lack of … (2 comments)

cave creek: Buyers! Sellers! I may have an agent for you..... - 01/13/17 02:19 PM

 
I work a lot with people relocating from other states.  Often these folks are referred to me by an agent they use in their respective town.  But all too often buyers, and even sellers will choose an agent who they are unfamiliar with in an unfamiliar area. This is where I, or your agent can come in handy for you.  
We as agents are constantly networking with each other, either via sites like Active Rain, or industry releated conventions and events.  So we probably know of a good agent in your area or the area you're headed to who can assist … (3 comments)

cave creek: 6 Signs That Your Market is Flipping to a Buyer's Market.... - 10/25/16 02:53 AM

 
For the past several years our, the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, market as well as many other markets around the country have been pretty much a seller's market.  But how can you tell when your market is shifting to a buyer's market? And I'm not talking about a free fall like 2008-2010, just a normal shift.  Well, there are several factors:
 
1. The days on market in a lot of areas is starting to grow.  Historically a balanced market (neither favoring sellers nor buyers) has been benchmarked by 90 days on the market for homes to sell.  So if you see the days on … (1 comments)

September showed the Scottsdale, AZ real estate market slowing again, continuing the trend of mixed signals we've been getting over the last several months.  Sales activity was down, but price movement is still heading up, albeit ever so slightly.  The number of homes sold was down 10% versus August 2016, but up slightly over August 2015.

cave creek: Scottsdale, AZ Market Report - July 2016 - 08/31/16 08:09 AM

 
The Scottsdale, AZ real estate market showed a bit of slide in month of July.  The number of homes sold was down dramatically from both June 2016 and July 2015.

cave creek: 5 Reasons You Need A Realtor When Buying a New Build - 12/28/15 06:34 AM
 
The home buying process is often a trying, confusing process for most home buyers.  Buying a resale home on the open market is tough enough, but if you choose to go the new build route it can be even more arduous.  Which is why you should have a trusted Realtor by your side during the process.  And here's why:
1. The builder's sales agent is not on your side.  Although they may come across as friendly and helpful, the sales agent at new construction sites work for the builder, not you.  Therefore they have the builder's best interest at heart, not yours.  … (3 comments)

cave creek: Cash is not always King.... - 11/07/13 04:10 AM
Over my years in the real estate business I've encountered many a cash buyer, both as my direct client and as a listing agent representing sellers.  And a common trait I've noticed about cash buyers is what I might politely call "Over Confidence".  There seems to be a mind set amongst the cash buyer that because they DO have cash that they can get whatever they want at a severe discount (READ: Steal).  But that's not always the case.
I've represented buyers who are financing homes that have beaten out cash buyers on a purchase, simply because their offer was better.  If a … (0 comments)
