  I'm always working for you and our community.  Senator McCain and Senator Kyle are working for us.  I have great hopes that our housing market is in the process of turning around.  My believe is that we are at the bottom but it will take some more additional time to sell off the rather large amount of inventory.  The rules of economics seem to be at work in our beautiful Valley of the Sun.  I have lived in the Phoenix (now Metro-Pl ex ) since 1961 and yes things have changed.  But the rules of our economy have remained the same.  SUPPLY and DEMAND.  October 18, 2009    Mr. Roland Rogge Litchfield Park, AZ 85340-8302  Dear Mr. Rogge: Thank you for contacting me about the real estate market.  I appreciate knowing your views on this important issue. There is a justifiable feeling of conc...

10/16/2009 Well people are starting to come back to Sun Village as the temperatures are cooling down.  I just listed a really nice condo.  Also have a Santa Rosa model with a Casita and court yard going active on Monday.  First week of next month, I will be having a beautiful patio home on the market.  I just heard that the pool will be closed for repairs, but double check to be sure.  My Mom just switched from her own pool to the large heated community, which is a lot more convenient.  From what the Weatherman said its to be a little warmer than the norm, but the temps will be back to normal with in a week. Enjoy this beautiful weather we are having in Sun Village, Surprise, Arizona.  Please check out my website www.RolandSellsHomes.net and my listings are also showcased on www.Realtor...

I just posted the Sun City Grand Arizona, September 2009 home sales report.  There were 16 homes sold this month versus 19 in September of 2008.  Year to date numbers show a reduction as well, 264 sales for 2009 & 322 sales for 2008.  While sales are down from last year our inventories have also been running at an all time low. Overall, Sun City Grand is fairing far better than most of the other Arizona active retirement communities in overall sales as well as the number of foreclosures coming on the market.  As of this writing there are around 20 homes scheduled for foreclosure.  Some of these may be sold as short sales and never actually go into foreclosure. Compare these numbers with Corte Bella, a much smaller community, and you'll see why it may take Corte Bella longer to recover. ...
