It was another beautiful sunny Arizona day. It's springtime; the desert is in full bloom. While other US cities are still experiencing cold blistery weather, there's a whole lot of sun here. At 8am my husband and I had our morning cup of coffee on our backyard patio enjoying the mild 66° temperature. SURPRISE! Temperature raised quickly. The first Arizona triple digit weather was recorded at 1:15pm. Although the temperature increased to the 100° prediction, it was dry heat - a perfect day to have an open house.

The housing prices in metropolitan Phoenix climbed 22.9 percent in 2012, the highest in the nation, according to research firm CoreLogic. Homebuilders are now both rushing to buy land and even resuming building on land that was deserted. Leading to the housing market in Phoenix to a place it has not been for quite some time. In this sellers’ market we search high and low for the right home for our buyers. So what does this mean to us as a nation? Can we say that we are on a total upturn economically speaking? I believe that this is one of the first signs that we are on the way out of one our bleakest days as a nation! Homes flying off the market and new construction on a steady uptick are indicators that we could be gradually climbing out of the rut. As homebuyers steadily search high a...

Cake Pan Electrical Cover When a property inspection reveals problems with plumbing, roofing, electrical, etc., I always recommend that the buyers insist the repairs be done by a licensed contractor in a workmanship like manner.  In our area the local laws and HOA regulations require this for major repairs, but it's a good idea even for minor changes.  A friend of mine just sent me these photos that graphically illustrate why. The previous homeowners were an elderly couple who had tried to upgrade their home but pinched pennies at every turn.  They apparently did some of the work themselves and hired inexpensive handymen for the rest.  As a result, when they sold the home, the inspector found faucets plumbed backward, outlets wired with reverse polarity, hot water heater overflow piping...
