Chris Dunham and American Dream TV upcoming epsidoes
With thousands of Realtors vying for spots on American Dream TV, when I was chosen I was super excited. I wanted to showcase my listings of course, but also wanted to figure out a way to help those around me, especially the "Mom and Pop" Shops that make up the landscape of American Business Owners.
On an upcoming episode, I had the opportunity to meet local business owner, Todd Batt, and get to know him and his Business, "All About Golf". He's lived in Arizona all his life, and has been a "Scratch" Golfer for … (0 comments)

Giving back never felt so good - Paz de Cristo Community Center
We all have those moments in life where we want to "do more". We want to "be more". About two years ago I had the opportunity to work at Paz de Cristo as a volunteer, my wife and I had done some volunteer work in the "streets" of Phoenix (seriously, we were feeding those living on the streets, but the organization that we were involved in, wasn't very organized, so it wasn't really working to well).
A friend of mine invited me to participate in "Give back Fridays" and as soon as … (0 comments)

Why you should get a Home Inspection - One of the Home buying steps
 
So you've got yourself under contract with a Home, Congratulations! Now the fun truly begins. Buying a home, for most people, is going to be the biggest purchase you make in your lifetime. I recently purchased a home, yep, Realtors move too, lol. Now I purchased a new home, and made the rookie mistake (yep, I make mistakes too, we're all human and I trusted the builder), I didn't have it inspected.
In fact, in Arizona you can have a Professional Home Inspector come out and inspect your … (2 comments)

How ibuyers steal your equity from underneath your nose - Stay away for iBuyers
Its not rocket science. In fact, its all black and white, its simple arithmetic. Its how they play with the  numbers that will cost you thousands of dollars. Now, I'm not talking $5,000 to Six Grand, I am talking TENS of Thousands of Dollars! In fact, I myself am a prime example!
I reached out to two ibuying companies,both made me offers, both tried to "spin" the price of the these offers as 'Fair Market Value". Now lets understand this concept, your house is worth what someone is … (4 comments)

Its time to sell my personal home. We have a situation that requires at least 2 more rooms for a family member to live with us.

Now, I could have "set the market" at $500k or "given it away: at a price lower than $474,900. I have a corner … (1 comments)

The rules of engagement when pursuing a brand new home
 
Don't be fooled, the on site sales agent(s) represent the seller, which is in fact, the Builder. So there role is to convince the buyer to spend as much money as possibly-selling the American Dream of "Consumerism". Consumer is a very interesting word isn't it? We've been led to believe over our lives that we are consumers, that is we purchase products, invest in our communities by doing so-whether a mom and pop shop or a big box store. We are making the world go round. (My opinion of course).
Its not different when we see a … (1 comments)

Handing over the keys - Closing gift for home buyers
Every where you turn right now, you're going to run into a "real estate agent". In Arizona, for every 168 people you come in contact with, at least one is going to hold a real estate license! What does that say to you? To me, it scares the hell out of me! I have been helping buyers buy and sellers sell for 2 decades. I close, on average, $10M in assets per year-didn't start that way, took me unitl my second year to get my bearings and become a productive agent. Now, understand … (1 comments)
