lake havasu real estate: Home Selling in a Balanced Market - 08/10/22 11:31 AM
For the last couple of years, we saw home sales in Lake Havasu skyrocket. Sale prices rose even higher. But in the last couple of months, both sales and prices began to come down. We have now entered a balanced market. In fact, it may even be tipping towards the buyer's favor again. If you want to sell your Havasu home today, learn how home selling works in today's market compared to last year.

lake havasu real estate: Which Down Payment Strategy is Right for You? - 07/20/22 01:25 PM
You’ve most likely heard the rule that you need to save up for a 20% down payment before you buy a Havasu home. The logic behind saving 20% remains solid. It shows that you have the financial discipline and stability to save for a long-term goal. It also helps you get favorable rates from lenders. With interest rates on the rise, that translates to potentially saving tens of thousands of dollars. But there can actually be financial benefits to putting down a small down payment—as low as 3%—rather than parting with so much cash up front, even if you have the … (3 comments)

When you buy a Havasu home, you know that you must pay for your down payment, closing costs, a home inspection, and an appraisal (among other things). But when you sell your home, you just sit back and collect the profits, right? Not quite. It costs money to sell your property, too. To help prepare you for what to expect, I have explained the most common home selling costs below.

lake havasu real estate: Top Tips for House Hunting Online - 06/22/22 12:54 PM
Good news for Havasu home buyers! We've seen a rise in available inventory recently. An increase in inventory helps keep bidding wars at bay...at least for the moment. So, your chances of finding (and buying) a home go up as well. Hunting for a new home online is a great place to start your search. In fact, Statista shows that 95% of all home buyers in the US use their computers to search for homes online. But it should not be your end all be all. Good listing agents are excellent at highlighting the best features of a home. However, you … (5 comments)

lake havasu real estate: Home Seller Pre-Inspection: Yay or Nay? - 06/15/22 11:02 AM
When purchasing a Lake Havasu home, many buyers opt for a home inspection during escrow. I recommend this even for a new build due to the fact that you never know what may lurk just out of sight. However, a pre-inspection may also benefit a seller. On the flip side, doing so also includes a few drawbacks for the seller as well. So, should you get a home seller pre-inspection performed before you list your property or not? Weigh the pros and cons below before making your decision.

lake havasu real estate: How Debt-to-Income Affects Your Chances for Mortgage Approval - 06/08/22 11:10 AM
Our everyday lives can be stressful enough. But when you add buying a home to the mix, our stress levels soar even higher. Before you start looking for a Havasu home, I highly recommend that you talk to your lender to at least begin the pre-approval process. Why? This takes a little while and it allows you to jump in with an offer when you find a home you like. Next to a low credit score, the most common reason a mortgage loan is denied is due to the buyer's debt-to-income ratio. What is this and how does it affect your … (2 comments)

lake havasu real estate: Lake Havasu Market Report for May 2022 - 06/01/22 09:36 AM
Inflation and the likelihood of a recession hitting us soon has many people concerned. Even with inventory slightly higher and sale prices cooling off slightly, higher prices at the pump and in the stores hit everyone's pocketbooks. In turn, this affected how much home buyers had to work with. The Lake Havasu Market Report for May 2022 reflected this with lower total sales.

"London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down. London Bridge is falling down. My fair lady." You probably remember singing this as a kid. But did you know the reason behind this child's nursery rhyme? Or how it connects to our fair city here in America? I thought it might be fun to talk about how Lake Havasu got its start courtesy of one man with a big vision...and an English bridge in the middle of the Arizona desert.

lake havasu real estate: Air Conditioner Maintenance is Crucial for Homeowners - 02/23/22 12:13 PM
When you live in a desert community like Lake Havasu City, you know the importance of a properly working air conditioner. Temperatures start hitting a regular 90F or above at the end of April/beginning of May. By the middle of summer, temps hit 110+F (and even over 120+F on some days). Before the heat hits us, though, make sure you complete your air conditioner maintenance. Why? Because, if you find a problem, it is better to fix it before your local AC company gets busy.

Even with the pandemic in its second year, the Havasu real estate market continued to thrive last year. Low inventory never dampened home buyer demand. While actual sales landed almost exactly the same amount of sales at the end of 2021 as we did in 2020, prices rose dramatically. The median sale price started off at $345,000 in January 2021. But by December 2021, it hit $439,000, a whopping 27% increase in just 12 months.
