Arizona Real Estate Prices Inching Upward

If you have been waiting for real estate prices in Arizona to go lower, I think that boat has already sailed. We are finding that prices are inching up about 2-4% every month. Multiple offers are common, usually far above list price, & many listings show up on the MLS as brand new, but already under contract. Most have several backup offers in the wings, in case the first contract doesn’t make it to closing.

Cash is king, & sellers, whether banks or short sellers, will always take a cash offer over a financed one. That’s why it’s imperative that before you make any offer, you have a bank confirmation of funds, or else an ironclad lender approval for funds.

If the house you want is in a good area, is in good shape, & is under $500,000, chances are good it won’t be on the market for long. Anything over $500,000 will last a bit longer on the market, but they are moving well too. The investors & house flippers have pretty well taken over the under $100,000 market, & fixeruppers are snapped up quickly. Then they are resold or held as rentals.

Market conditions change weekly, if not daily, so if you need information on anything to do with the Arizona Real Estate market, please call me for clarification. Don’t believe everything you read in the media or find on various websites. Talk to a professional.

Phoenix Real Estate Report Dec 2011

Hello!

Here is the Market Update through the end of December 2011. Please note that the Valley Wide graph represents all of the MLS. The table below that graph just represents recordings for new and re-sales for Maricopa County.

Inventory (All Areas & Types in MLS): Total active listings have dropped by 1376 units over the beginning of last month. As of January 11, we sit at 25,342 Actives for Single Family Homes and Condos. Sales are at 7042 for the last 30 days (as of January 11th), up by 53 units from December 2011. We are currently sitting at a 3.6 months of supply. If you subtract out the AWC Contracts (which are included in Actives in the Cromford Report), we are at an approximate 3.0 months of supply. Traditionally, 3-4 months of supply indicate a balanced market. Now is the time to take listings!

Distressed Market Pie Chart: This chart shows you the percentage of distressed properties that are being listed and sold. Short Sales represent 32% of the Closings for December (compared to 30% in November) and 36% of the active Listings for a 3.9 Months of Supply. Distressed Sales (Short Sales and REOs combined) accounted for 59% of the total sales for December. REO Sales have taken a dramatic drop to 27% of the sales from 30% last month. The listing success rate for Short Sales is 60.8%! Don’t avoid these listings! They are closing with greater success rate!

Closings (Maricopa County: New Construction and Re-Sales): There were 7806 closings in December 2011 vs. 6975 closings in November 2011, which equates to a 11.9% increase. There were 6991 closing in December 2010, which is a 11.7% year-over-year increase for 2011. And, for the entire year of 2011, there was a 9% increase in sales over the year of 2010!

Reality Check: The Median Sold Price for Maricopa County for December 2011 was $129,214, which is up .4% from November 2011. In December 2006, the Median Sold Price was $265,000! In December 2000, the Median Sold Price was $138,286. Use this at your listing appointments to help explain what has happened to our market and get realistic list prices!

Luxury: The Luxury Market of $1,000,000+ continues to have the lowest absorption rate of any market segment. There was a 6% absorption rate for the month of November. Only 66 properties in all of the MLS were sold for more that $1,000,000 in December 2011.

Five Ways to Make People Happy

 

5 ways to make people happy

5 ways to make people happy

Happy customers make for referrals and repeat business. These days, people have plenty of reasons for being apprehensive & upset about the current state of the economy. Anything you can do to make a transacation easier or to solve their problems will make them remember you and use your services again, as well as refer you to their friends and relatives.

1. Be honest. Unfortunately, due to economic downturns, many people have been conditioned to expect an evasive or equivocal response from companies. If customers ask how your service differs from that of competitors, give an honest and straightforward answer. Never badmouth your competitors. It always gets back to them.

2. Let them talk. People enjoy talking about themselves. Your cusomters are no exception. Ask questions not just about their current goals, but about their family, profession & hobbies. Pay attention to how much of the time you talk compared with the time your customer talks. If you find that you’re talking too much, make an effort to ask more questions and listen. And try to remember what they have told you, or take notes.

3. Show you care. Thoughtful acts say a great deal about who you are. Record the names of customers’ children, pets, or birthdays & use the information when asking what their family is doing or to send a card. Email them a news article about their favorite band or send a recipe you think they’d like. Keep them on you email list after the sale to remind them you care after you get paid as well.

4. Be persistent (but not aggressive). Do you know whether your customers think your actions are aggressive? If they perceive you as being too pushy, they may back away from doing business with you. Rather than guess, simply ask them how often they want you to contact them & what time of the day they’d like’d like to reached. By asking them what their timetable is for a purchase, you can avoid contacting them before they are ready to buy.

5. Don’t break your word. If you tell customers that you’ll email them the next morning with more information, follow through. If you say that you’ll always return their calls within a hour, do it. People never forget a broken promise.

Remember the Golden Rule, which is never old-fashioned: Do for others as you would have them do for you.

Phoenix Homes: Low Flow Shower Heads Save Water

 
Low Flow Shower Heads
Selecting the right shower head for economy and ease of use can be a challenge.
Here is some helpful information to assist you.
Why is low-flow the way to go? Older shower heads use between 3 and 6 gallons (15 and 30 L) of water per minute, whereas newer, low-flow models use less than 2 gallons (10 L) per minute – and you won’t even notice the difference in water pressure.
What you will notice though is that your hot-water use will be reduced by up to
50%, which will cut both your electricity and water bills in the process. A family
of three could save between $175 and $190 per year (depending on whether
they use electricity or natural gas to heat the water) just by switching to a low-flow
shower head.
Which shower head is best for your needs?
• Aerating shower heads mix air into the water stream. This maintains steady
pressure so the flow has an even, full shower spray while using less water.
• Non-aerating shower hears deliver a strong spray minus the air. The water flow
pulses, giving you a massaging effect.
• Mutltiple-flow shower heads allow you to set the spray from fine to coarse.
Some even feature a pause setting, which allows you to stop the water while soaping up, saving even more. The big tip here? Remember to use it!

Arizona Homes: Granite Myths Dispelled

Arizona Homes: Granite Myths Dispelled

 
Using Granite in your home Makes Sense–Dispelling the Myths

In recent years, granite has become a popular
surface choice for bathroom and kitchen countertops.
Granite is beautiful and extremely durable, but some
homeowners hesitate to use it because of myths about
it being unsafe or diffi cult to care for. Below, fi nd a list
of granite myths dispelled:
1. Granite is absorbent. Granite qualifi es as impervious
to water and is actually less absorbent than some solid
surface (plastic) products.
2. Granite stains easily. Granite is resistant to stains.
Generally any liquid spilled on a granite top, if wiped up
within a few minutes, will not stain. Liquids that do not
evaporate, such as oils, will cause stains only if left to
soak into the stone.
3. Granite requires a lot of maintenance. Routine
cleaning with a mild soap and water is all that is
generally required. Once a year, a reapplication of a
penetrating sealer should be performed. It takes only
about 15 minutes. Never use abrasive cleaners.
4. Granite’s tiny pores and fi ssures harbour bacteria.
Bacteria are found everywhere. If they are on a granite
top, then they can also be found on a laminate or solid
surface top. Use an antibacterial soap to wash your
countertop if you are concerned.
5. Granite and marble are essentially the same. Other
than the fact that they are both natural stones and
can be polished, granite and marble are otherwise
very different. Marble is generally a calcareous stone,
formed from oceanic deposits and then compressed
under pressure (metamorphosed). Granite, however,
is an igneous rock, essentially molten magma, that is
cooled and then hardened below the earths surface.
Your natural stone counter top choice will add years of
beauty, strength, durability, and ease of maintenance to
your home. Enjoy!

Arizona Wine Country

 

Arizona Wine Country

 
I’ll bet you didn’t know that Arizona has 40 wineries in production and another 25 getting ready to go into production. They are almost all small boutique wineries, with limited production, but they are grouped so that you can take a one day or more wine tour and tasting, and see some fantastic desert scenery along the way.
No one really thinks of Arizona as wine country, but it makes a great holiday weekend. Ask me about maps and tours. And if you want to become a vintner, I can help you find a winery to buy and operate
