 From the advice of one of our preferred Attorneys, Mr. Chris Combs of Combs, Gottlieb & MacQueen, P.C.:Buyer Can Waive If Seller Refuses Home Inspection Question: We signed a purchase contract with the seller to buy a Glendale home for $450,000, and then deposited $10,000 earnest money with the escrow company. We were very excited, because not only were we having difficulty purchasing any home, this home was probably worth at least $500,000. Three days later our Realtor tried to schedule our 10-day inspection, but the seller’s agent said that the sellers were very unhappy about the $450,000 purchase price, and that unless we raised the purchase price to $480,000, they would not allow us to do the 10-day inspection. Our real estate agent said that the seller is in breach of the AAR Purc...

Those of you that live in Arizona all know one of the most wonderful aromas that we love and give thanks for. (photo- Rain in the Desert 67Armadillo from Pixabay). For me the smell brings back memories of days gone by. It is a smell of freshness and purity and the desert opening up to the welcomed rain."There is a scent that fills the air after rain falls. This scent—known as petrichor—may be described differently around the world, because it comes from the oils secreted by certain plants in the area. Arizona’s after-rain smell, however, is one of the most popular and well-known scents around." Read on from Complete Landscaping in Tucson to learn exactly where that fragrance comes from.Petrichor (The name of the "Fragrance")"Petrichor is the official term given to any type of after-rain...
