THERE IS A NEW BIRD IN SURPRISE, ARIZONA IT IS CALLED A CRANE

It was an amazing site to me this past week. I picked up two homes under Phoenix Property Management in Surprise, Arizona. These two homes were located on the west side of Surprise, Arizona. The Arizona Department of Transportation is doing a lot of work on Highway 303 in preparation of connecting the I10 to the I17 on the west side of town. The goal is to open these two major highways to speed up traffic. Plus, this will open more ways to come in and out … (0 comments)

BEST PIZZA IN WILLIAMS, ARIZONA PIZZA FACTORY RESTAURANT
It is Spring Break for the kids at school here in Phoenix, Arizona. So, the family decided to visit Flagstaff, Arizona for some fun in the snow. We spent four glorious days having fun in the snow. We went sledding to snowball fights with the entire family. The last day of our trip we decided to visit the Grand Canyon. It was the first time for both of our children to view the Grand Canyon. We had a blast that day. We left the Grand Canyon at approximately 2:30PM in the afternoon. We … (1 comments)

az: WE CAN ALL WORK TOGETHER REALLY WE CAN IN REAL ESTATE - 04/24/10 03:42 PM

I thought I would reflect on the past several years since I have been in the real estate industry. I have made rookie mistakes just like many of you. I was spoiled because I had a mentor for the first two years in this industry who taught me the ropes. They say people who have the most experience have made the most mistakes. We all learn from mistakes to make us better realtors. So, here is my top 10 list of mistakes made by realtors:
Send over fully executed contract Not opening escrow the next day Verify the prelim title … (5 comments)

ART OF CLOSING THE DEAL (Fix and Flip)


 
1. Closing is the last step in buying a home. Unless you are paying cash for the house, you cannot buy without backing from a lender, which comes in the form of a commitment letter. The lender will require that you have a homeowner's insurance policy on the property, so you will need to arrange this before the closing.
2. At closing you will be asked how you want to hold the title, which basically refers to ownership. If you alone will own the house, it's sole ownership; joint tenancy … (5 comments)

az: REAL ESTATE MENTOR PHOENIX, ARIZONA - 12/12/09 12:05 PM
I have been in the real estate industry for the past seven years. I spent the first fourteen years in corporate America. I was thrown into the real estate industry. However, I knew I had to obtain a mentor in order to survive in real estate. I needed someone to teach me the ropes. Real estate is very competitive. Many agents do not like to teach other new agents based on creating more competition in the field. Why? That was my question. There is enough business for everyone in this field. Senior agents brag about their knowledge. However, they are not … (4 comments)

az: HIRE REALTOR WHEN SELLING REAL ESTATE IN A DIVORCE SITUATION - 12/06/09 03:58 PM

 
Divorce is happening at record levels during these tough economic down times. Divorce is not a pretty picture for anyone involved in it. How does one divide up the money and real estate? I have been contacted several times to list a home involving a divorce. Many times the home represents equity to be split among the couple.
 
There are 3 types of listing agreements available to divorce couples when listing a home:
Exclusive Right to Sell - This gives a real estate agent a commission regardless if the broker sells your house or not in the sale. … (6 comments)

az: WHAT FINANCIALS DO YOU NEED TO PROCESS MY SHORT SALE? - 10/19/09 12:43 PM

Short sales continue to increase as homeowners cannot meet their monthly mortgage obligations due to job loss or a cut in pay. Many Americans have hit their limit and do no know what to do during this economic crisis. People have committed suicide because of no HOPE. Statistics say that 70% of the people that go into foreclosure do not contact their bank or any other professional to find out their options. That means people put their head into the ground thinking that everything will be OK and nothing will happen to them. WRONG!
Please visit my other blog that … (8 comments)

az: FIXING AND FLIPPING HOMES DONE RIGHT PHOENIX, ARIZONA - 10/11/09 02:35 PM
I have been working with real estate investors for the last seven years. It is all about the numbers to them. Phoenix real estate is experiencing another rebirth with homes well below $100k. It is hard not to cash flow a property in Phoenix. So, I work with investors to purchase distressed properties at a great price. Then, we have to rehab the property to prepare it for a rental.
Here are some inexpensive ways to spruce up the rental without spending a lot of money
All new electrical switch panels for entire house New fans throughout the house New light … (3 comments)

az: SO, YOU WANT TO BE A REAL ESTATE AGENT - 09/26/09 08:33 AM
 
I have several people who come up to me on a montly basis asking me what it takes to be a real estate agent. Many people think being a real estate is easy. All we do is show homes and write contracts. How hard can that be? Then, we give that little laugh inside of us. We have all been there in the trenches. Real estate reminds me of being in retail. Retail is a mind set which must deal with the public. What do you do when you have a Mom screaming in your face with her baby during … (15 comments)

az: SUNDAY DRIVE WHAT IS THAT? - 06/14/09 06:56 PM

I was called this morning by my out of state buyers. They requested to be let into the house before the leave on their trip back home. They are in the process of purchasing a house here in Arizona. I said no problem and met them at the property. They needed two hours to secure the house for the summer time. They are planning to come back in September. So, I volunteered to obtain some supplies for their project. I drove the country side until I saw the following statue. I said, "What was that?"
It represents a company. Guess … (7 comments)
