I specialize in Scottsdale, Rio Verde, New River, Desert Hills, Surprise, Wittmann, Tonopah, Phoenix. I work with buyers and sellers selling homes and land. I also specialize in reo, foreclosures in all these areas. 

FHA Loans are back up to $346,250 for a single family home in Scottsdale and all of Maricopa County.  Call me if you would like to pre qualify with a local lender to take advantage of the low rates and low limits this year.  An FHA loan may be a good choice for a first time or repeat buyer with less than perfect credit or not too much money for a down payment and closing costs.  USDA 100% first time buyer loans should be available through 2012.

Choosing financing is as important as choosing a home - you may have to live with it for a very long time.  I interact constantly with lenders and make sure that you have all the information that you need to decide on a home loan.

I love to work with buyers and will represent you as your buyers agent, at no cost to you - I get to share the satisfaction you get when we find just the right home.  I show Resale Buyers new homes as well as existing homes, and visa versa.  Sometimes a new home in Scottsdale Arizona will be a better buy, maybe a resale home already has the upgrades that you would choose and would have to pay extra for.  That is why it is better to really LOOK and compare.

Don't go to a new home subdivision without an experienced real estate agent to represent you on your first visit.  The agents at a new home subdivision work for the seller of the new home and it is not their job to look out for your best interests - that is my job as your buyer representative. Call me for pricing, floor plans and promotions at all new home subdivisions in Scottsdale Arizona.
