After reading many, many of the featured blogs I am still at a loss as to the reason some articles get featured and others dont. I have written about every subject I could think of and still no success. So like many of you out there I blog and blog looking to join the ranks of those lucky few individuals who get prominent display on Active Rain. Even though I have not found a definite formula that I can see to getting featured I do see a few things that many featured blogs have in common. Make it interesting-> Subject matter is the end all be all of blogging on the Rain. Featured posts all tend to be interesting in whatecer subject they are covering. From comenting about the local market to tips on REO Listings, most featured sites have something important to say about the subject matte...

The big news for the week this time is the fact that Goodyear has overcome challenges in transportation, education and recreation and for doing so has been named one of the 10 All-American cities.  The honor came on the evening of June 6th at the National Civic League's annual conference held in Tampa, Fl.  Being named an  All American City requires an application that includes extensive information on challenges facing a city and how that city has met three of those challenges.  The challenges Goodyear was faced with were the congestion on I-10, attracting higher education and problems involving BMX riders causing damage to the city's skateboard park.  All three have been addressed or are being addressed right now like the widening of I-10 which wasn't supposed to happen till 2011.  Ju...

 I have seen much change in the last couple of years in relation to Real Estate around the Phoenix metro but one thing doesn't seem to stop in Goodyear, AZ and that is growth.  The homes are in and now here comes the commercial.  I've decided to blog about some of these changes and the goings on around Goodyear because like my title line says, I beleive it is going to be a good year in Goodyear (or more optimisticly, several good years).  You can't go too far in any direction without seeing some kind of building being erected or construction project of some sort.  I believe this is going to be the place to be on the west side in the near future.  I will start out with the new Goodyear Recreational Sports Complex/Cleveland Indians Spring Training Camp being built right now.  This is loca...

The Phoenix Real Estate Market - this builder thinks its gonna go up!by Kaushik Sirkar, Chandler AZ REALTORChandler Arizona Real EstateWith the current housing slump in the Valley (and in many parts of the country as well) one would expect a lot of "cutting back" by builders and others in the industry.  We're certainly seeing that overall with all the mortgage company layoffs, the subprime crisis, etc.  But in the long run many agree that the Valley still represents a very promising market for Real Estate and specifically for builders.In today's Arizona Republic, we see an article where John Laing Homes of California is expanding its operations in the Valley by targetting a development in Goodyear.  They discuss how Goodyear is one of the fastest growing areas in the country and they wa...

So I get a letter in the mail yesterday confirming a zip code split for Goodyear.  As of July 5th of this year, the area encompassing Goodyear city limits north of the I-10 will have a new zip code: 85395, whereas the areas south of the TEN will continue to remain 85338.  I just moved in August and now I need to call everyone to update my address once again!  Oye ve!!!  But for you procastinators don't be alarmed...apparently the post office will still deliver to 85338 for up to one year...but you know what, why push it?Cheers,Uzi HusainArizona Realtor, serving Goodyear & The Phoenix metropolitan area

I have a listing appointment in 2 hours in Goodyear, AZ..The seller has told me that another agent was there and told them to list for $269,900. I've run a CMA. No comparable house has sold for over $250,000. We are in a declining market. I've got to tell the sellers that they should list for just under $250,000 and that I won't do it for 5%.I feel pretty good about it. I have a killer presentation package that will show them that NO one has EVER received the $269,900 price in that subdivision of almost 700 homes.I hope to show that my experience and performance show that I perform. That he should measure the other agent's credibility against mine.Wish me luck, I'll post what happens after I get back.

On American Idol, I'm encouraging everyone to vote for Jordin Sparks, daughter of a Keller Williams agent here in Glendale, AZ.Everyone in Keller Williams is very proud of Jordin and her tremendous success and we vote early and often.If you'd be kind enough, support Jordin as she is from the 'Real Estate Family!' and she is also doing a fantastic job on American Idol.

I did an OPEN HOUSE yesterday in Goodyear, Az for 5 hours and got 1 visitor.While I was prepared for more than 1 visitor, I did take my laptop and got a lot of work done that would have kept my working late into the night otherwise.The 1 visitor I got was especially noteworthy. I had been looking at my watch and I was going to leave at 3 p.m. Then I thought maybe I'll leave 20 min early since no one had come by. This visitor arrived at precisely 3 p.m.I would have missed them if I had left earlier. They weren't ready to buy, have a condo lease until Nov-Dec. But they want a house like the one I was showing and in the same school district. I now have them signed up to give them house by e-mail in their area of interest. I'll send them a few to see, than followup and fine tune our search,...

I'm from Maryland, transplanted to the Phoenix area in 1975. I've grown to love the food of the southwest. Almost anything is better with some green chili on it.I am struggling with a Spanish language class but that just helps, it doesn't solve the problem of working with Spanish only clients.On my listings, I hang a rider that says, in Spanish, if you want to deal in Spanish, call Hilda at xxxxxxx. Hilda is a Spanish speaker and she works with these referred clients, giving me a 25% referral.I don't lose the client, the client gets great service, and Hilda likes the referrals.

SINGLE FAMILY DETACHED HOMES:Goodyear, AZ, like most of the Phoenix metropolitan area has had a high inventory of homes with sluggish sales.Checking the numbers today, I found 1,232 Active listings, with 129 Pending sales, and 82 Closed in the last 30 days. This seems to imply that about 1/3 of the contracts will not close.I'm also amazed that 237 of the Active listings came on the market in the last 30 days. That's a ratio of 3 new listings for every sold listing. The inventory is certainly not shrinking here in Goodyear.

The city of Goodyear proposed the City Center in 1988.  After 18 years the general plan for the 1.7million sqft. development has been finally approved.  While it may still take a couple of years to completely materialize, residents can expect a pedestrian friendly environment.  The location is near Yuma Road and Estrella Parkway.  Some of the amenities will include a library, civic, retail, restaurant and community space along with cultural venues such as a performing arts center and the City's administrative buildings.  Cheers,Uzi HusainArizona Realtor, serving Goodyear & The Phoenix metropolitan area

While new home sub-divisions are still springing up in Goodyear, and will continue to do so, retail and commercial growth is equally thriving and poised to do so for the next couple of  years.  From WESTCORs Estrella Falls shopping mall to new restaurants, furniture stores, and other retail and power centers.  According to an article from the Spring/Summer 2007 edition of Vista, published by the West Valley View, Goodyear has approx. 5 million square feet of retail space in the plannings to materialize over the next 2 - 3 years.  Some big name giants such as Babie's R Us, Circuit City, Sports Chalet, Mervyn's, Ethan Allan, Design Source, BJ's Brewery and P.F. Changs are in the works already.So stay tuned for more!  If you or someone you know is planning to relocate to Goodyear, AZ or th...
