As a homebuyer, how do you protect yourself from making a mistake?

Purchasing a home is a big decision, and it’s one that you’ll literally have to live with. In a low inventory market like ours, many buyers worry that they might be pressured into making the wrong choice.

What happens if you move in and you aren’t happy with the home?

Don’t worry. Our exclusive Realty Protection Plan is an amazing feature. Basically, if you buy a home through us, we guarantee your satisfaction. If you’re not happy with the property, give us a call. We will buy it back from you or sell it for free.

That way, you can go out ...

Here are the latest numbers from our August 2017 market.

This year, appreciation during the month of August rose 6% from 2016. Also, the median sales price is up by 1%, sitting at $251,000.

However, the number of sales in our August market varied slightly depending on whether the home was a resale or a new construction. The number of resales sold in August is up 4% year over year, while new home sales are up by 15%.

This is definitely a hot market for new homes. Speaking of new homes, builders are tending to make them smaller. This means that the price per square foot has gone up.

With that said, every market is different. Within our Phoenix area market, some areas are definitely hotter than others.

Right now, Coolidge, El Mirage, and Arizona City are the top three areas in terms of appreciation. In fact, Coolidge has seen a 14% year-over-year increase.

5 Reasons You Shouldn't For Sale by Owner

Some homeowners consider trying to sell their home on their own, known in the industry as a For Sale by Owner (FSBO). We think there are several reasons this might not be a good idea for the vast majority of sellers.
Here are five of our reasons:
1. There Are Too Many People to Negotiate With
Here is a list of some of the people with whom you must be prepared to negotiate if you decide to FSBO.

The buyer who wants the best deal possible
The buyer’s agent who solely represents the best interest of the buyer
The buyer’s attorney (in some parts of the country)
The home inspection companies which work for the buyer and will almost always find some problems with the house
The appraiser if there is a question of value
Your bank in the case of a short sale

2. Exposure to Prospective Purchasers
Recent studies have shown that 92% of buyers search online for a home. That is in comparison to only 28% looking at print newspaper ads. Most real estate agents have an exte ...
