Yesterday, Associated Press erroneously published a release quoting the Arizona Multiple Listing Service (ARMLS) Stat Magazine as saying that 70% of the homes in the Phoenix area are at risck of foreclosure. The FACTS are, 70.2% of the SALES in January were distressed sales. Many of those sales were purchased by INVESTORS taking advantage of the remarkable low current prices.

Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow. Ronald E. Osborn Building science is constantly changing.  New technologies come into the marketplace everyday.  Government agencies reularly change their mind on how to interpret the building codes created by the ICC.  It is human nature to wait for something or someone else force us to learn something new in order to do our jobs.  How much better could we be at our jobs if we continally research new things.  I regularly take continuing education classes beyond what NACHI requires.  I devote time every day to learning something new about the science of building buildings.

It may or may not be fraud, but it is a total scam. Many people who bought homes last year are receiving letters that imply you should buy a copy of your property deed. The problem is this company is charging $157 to get a copy of the deed to send you. Why is this a problem? You got one shortly after escrow closed. If you didn't the escrow/title company will gladly get one for you, or you can go to the Maricopa County Recorders Office and order an official copy for a nominal fee usually about $1.00 per page. When you buy a property, the transaction becomes public record and you will receive many offers for products and services. Most are of some value, but this one is not, don't fall for it. If you have questions, contact your agent or the title company that handled the escrow.

This is it, the end of 2010 and the bigging of 2011. The following table shows the year to date sales of real estate by agents during 2010. To paraphrase Charles Dickens, It was NOT the best of times, it was NOT the worst of times. The biggest factor this year for both selling price and days on the market is single family homes are much more desireable to today's buyer. In past years condos and houses sold at roughly equal numbers, and just a few dollars difference in price per square foot. Days on the market also verify this preference With prices of $76/square foot for single family homes, and $65/square foot for condos, the timing seems perfect for buying a home in Sun City AZ.   Dwelling Type Listings Sold Average Sold Price Sold  % of List Price Sold $ Per Square Foot Days on the M...

I thought I would post a few photos taken today, New Years Day 2011. That is a picture from the clubhouse on Willowcreek Golf Course, yes that is snow on the peaks in the background. As you can see, we suffer greatly here in the winter! This is the view north on 99th AVE. near Beardsley Rd. in Sunny Sun City AZ. Makes you want to buy your vacation or retirement home here, doesn't it? And yes, Canadians are welcome here! I wish all who read this a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I started with AR 8/2/2008, that was the day I filled in my profile. I had lurked here longer than that, just can't remember. I didn't even know what good a blog was, I just thought it was an ego thing for the X generation. I was wrong. AR has become a part of my overall marketing plan, as well as a great learning tool. The community of agents etc. who post here are remarkably generous in sharing everything from real estate tips, SEO, copyright (thanks Lenn Harley) recipes, photography, geek stuff and much more. Thanks to all. Special thanks to Lenn Harley, Missy Caulk, Katerina Gasset, Broker Bryant, Mellisa Zavala and CJ for sharing a wide variety of information. Thanks to all, and a happy holiday season.

Winter storms blast the Midwest! Cold front extends from Florida to Canada! Metrodome collapses from weight of snow! 80 degrees forecasted for Sun City AZ! This is an open invitation to all who are affected by the weather to come to SUNNY Arizona and buy your retirement home in Sun City. Why suffer through another winter? Arizona has over 300 days of sun, golf all year, during winter you can visit the snow in places like Flagstaff and never have to shovel it.

1. These loans are now cheaper to take out Thanks to new federal rules, reverse mortgages don't have to sting as much at the outset. Previously these loans -- which let owners 62 or older borrow against their home and don't have to be paid back until the owner moves or dies -- always carried high upfront fees. A new option, called a HECM Saver, cuts the initial insurance premium -- one of the biggest costs -- from 2% to 0.01% of your home's value. On a $400,000 home, that means paying $40 instead of $8,000. Another welcome change: more thorough mandatory counseling for potential borrowers, which is designed to make sure you really need a reverse mortgage, understand it, and can afford to stay in your home even after taking out the loan. 2. Competition is heading up Banks are also cutti...
