Real Estate Agent - Desert Properties Realty
I thought this to be an excellent reblog..current Phoenix MLS statistics from the Cromford Report indicate less than 39% of short sales in our market are actually closing.  NOT a great number. I'm always amazed when I see agents post that they have a 100% sucess rate with their short sales.. Bob,...
For all of you out there in the AR community except for Arizona (excluding the reservations) and Hawaii, don't forget to change your clock tonight!  What will you do with that extra hour?!?!  More blogging and posting!!!
I had to blog about this before I forget, and I'll probably get irritated again as I think about it.  Agents should never give the "agent" copy of the listing to their customers/clients and tell them to go drive around and call the listing agent for questions.  This just really "gets my goat" so ...

Last week I had about a 40 minute ride to meet up with a home inspector and thought I needed to re-energize mysel...
Investor specials are EVERYWHERE in the Phoenix marketplace!  My team and I have been been working with clients that are looking to invest in LOW priced properties in Metro Phoenix.  These properties can be purchased for as little as 30-35k and need minimal work, and rental prices are anywhere fr...

Maricopa sits about 16 miles SW of the western part of Chandler, about 30 miles from downtown Phoenix and has approximately 40,000 residents.  It's a sleepy bedroom community and has that small town feel which many of my second hom...
