home: Have you Emotionally Disconnected from your House yet? - 04/15/16 08:38 AM

According to a study published in 2013 by the National Association of Home Builders the typical buyer of a single-family home was expected to remain in their property approximately 13 years before selling. This number has been steadily declining since 2009 when homeowners retained ownership of their properties for an average of 20 years. 
When some individuals purchase a home they envision themselves raising children, celebrating endless holidays, creating countless memories, and growing old all under the same roof. However, others don't have such a sentimental attachment to sticks, bricks and mortar. Regardless of which end of the spectrum you find yourself, there's no denying that … (26 comments)

home: Avoid these Home Improvement Mistakes to Sell Your Home Faster - 11/16/15 05:24 AM

Owning your home means more financial responsibility than merely being an occupying tenant in a rental property.

home: The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week - 08/11/15 12:32 AM
The most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week is a throwback to a different time and era. Built in 1950, this luxury bungalow would have been considered a lavish and extravagant property. It's seen it's fair share of updates since then but is starting to show it's age once again. They say location is everything in real estate. If your ambition is to be in the heart of Scottsdale you'd be hard pressed to find a more desirable area. Situated on over two acres of land the new owner didn't just purchase the main living quarters when they closed on this deal.

home: The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week - 07/20/15 11:18 AM
The most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week is reminiscent of what it would be like if the Alamo would have been a luxury home. The use of exterior construction materials such as rustic stone work, large square wooden beams, heavy solid wood doors, and stone paved driveways and walkways feels as if this home could have been built in the 1800's. The interior continues that theme with the use of reclaimed wood floors, vaulted and exposed ceiling beams, custom carved cabinets and bathroom vanities, and other traditional Southwestern inspired decor. The backyard is grassy, abundantly spacious and will make you feel as if … (22 comments)

home: The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week - 05/12/15 01:27 AM
If I only had two words to describe the most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week it would be "Simple Luxury". I don't know if it's possible to live in a home that sold for $3.9 million dollars and not have it be lavish, flashy, or extravagant but this home does it. The way the architect and builder carved and set this home in to it's mountain surroundings was tasteful and seamless. The property itself is no doubt built with the finest grade materials and finishings but as you search through the pictures you'll come away with a very minimalistic feel. The only "wow … (17 comments)

home: The Most Expensive Home sold in Arizona last week - 03/30/15 12:18 AM
The most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week was a unique property in the sense that it's not your traditional luxury home. This house was built in 1967 and by all accounts needs some pretty major updates to bring it in to the modern age. Selling this home for $3.3 million dollars might make someone unfamiliar with the area shake their head at why anyone would pay that kind of money for a fixer-upper. Well, you see this home sits on 3.29 acres right at the base of one of the most recognizable and popular mountains in all of Phoenix; … (23 comments)
