luxury homes: Market Report for Cave Creek, AZ 85331 - 11/21/19 11:04 AM
The housing market in Cave Creek, AZ continues to be a Sellers market.

We will continue to watch for changes in the Market Action Index. Any indication that the market is heating up, could also indicate that prices are likely to resume an upward climb.

luxury homes: Why a condo may be your best choice. - 12/16/17 09:43 AM
When trying to decide the type of property in which you should invest your hard earned money, many factors may come in to play.  While purchase price is always an important part of the equation, there are other ongoing costs that you may have to consider before deciding between a Single Family Residence (SFR), Townhouse or Condominium. But debating the economics of the purchase is only one factor in deciding where to live.
A second and equally important aspect of your decision should be your lifestyle. If you are someone that enjoys a large private yard, enjoys working in a garden and … (4 comments)

luxury homes: It should be Buyer Aware, not Buyer Beware. - 11/22/17 09:46 AM
We often hear the phrase Let the Buyer Beware (caveat emptor). The phrase comes from the contract law principle that buyers typically have less information about the property they are purchasing, while the seller has more information. Certain defects, known to the seller, may be hidden from the buyer either inadvertently or purposefully.
So as a home buyer how do you protect yourself and somewhat level the playing field? The best way to avoid problems down the road is by using what I call Buyer Aware (conscius emptor). As a buyer, who is about to make one of the largest financial transactions … (0 comments)

luxury homes: Get to know Phoenix before you relocate. - 11/11/17 06:12 PM
The Phoenix Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas of the country. Whenever I encounter someone that is considering a move to the area they often ask “Where should I live in the Phoenix area?" This is always a difficult question to answer because Phoenix, affectionately known as The Valley of the Sun, is unlike any other area of the country with regard to employment and housing. The Phoenix MSA (which is officially known as Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa) consists not only of Phoenix the largest city, but several other large cities like Glendale, Mesa, Peoria, Scottsdale, Tempe and … (0 comments)

luxury homes: Showing occupied homes. - 11/09/17 06:39 PM
Showing occupied homes requires some additional planning and scheduling on behalf of the agent(s) involved. Despite the fact, the sellers want to make their homes available for easy showing it is not always possible to accommodate showing on short notice or during a busy time.
Agents wishing to schedule showings of occupied homes must provide sellers enough time to make the home available. A little courtesy like scheduling a day or two in advance will go a long way toward making the visit a positive experience for both the buyer and the seller. No one wants to view a home that is … (0 comments)

luxury homes: The value of a client is greater than one. - 11/04/17 10:17 PM
Every agent knows that keeping their pipeline full of clients, both past, and prospective, is the secret to success. Over the years I have created a fairly nice portfolio of past clients that has helped sustain my business while I prospect for new clients.
Depending on which study you read, acquiring a new client is anywhere from 5 to 25 times more expensive than retaining one, and research shows increasing retention rates by just 5 percent can increase profits by 25 to 95 percent. That means by managing your prior customer relationships, you’re taking the most important step in maintaining consistent sales. … (1 comments)

luxury homes: Selling a home with a pool. - 11/02/17 10:12 AM
Selling a home with a pool places some unique responsibilities to the seller that not be required by houses without pools. It goes without saying that sellers of homes with pools should make sure that the pool is in proper working order. Hardware like filters, pumps, valves, heaters, lights and other miscellaneous plumbing must be functional. There should be no leaks. If a spa is included it should meet all functional requirements as well.
But even if the pool meets all of the functional specifications there may be more that is required by homes and homeowners that have a pool. The pool … (1 comments)

luxury homes: The Brother-In-Law Syndrome. - 10/21/17 02:38 PM
Most real estate agents work hard for their clients. Their mission is to help the client, regardless of whether the client is a buyer or seller, to make the best deal possible. As a commissioned professional the agent generally does not get paid until the sale closes, which means no sale, no pay. It is very frustrating when you work hard to make a sale and something goes wrong to deter that sale.
There could be any number of reasons why an agent doesn’t get paid regardless of how much effort they put into the sale, but one of the more exasperating … (1 comments)

luxury homes: You Can Observe a Lot Just By Watching... - 09/04/17 06:15 PM
I borrowed this title; "You can observe a lot just by watching", from the late Yogi Berra the Hall of Fame Yankee catcher that seemed to have a marvelous way with words.
Yogi was right in many ways. We often are so busy talking or trying to make a point that we forget to observe what is really important. Even when we think we are listening, we may be planning for our next response or our next riposte, to overcome an objection.
As real estate agents, we are taught to try and spin the positive viewpoint, to try and get a … (4 comments)
