You Must Change Your Thought Process     vs     When the time comes to sell your home you must make one HUGE shift in your thought process. You OWN a HOME but you SELL a HOUSE.    Too many sellers forget that when they put their house on the market, they are selling a commodity. They are selling an investment. It is is no longer going to be your home and you can't make emotional decisions.    For example, when you forget to flip that switch you tend to:    A) Be overly sensitive to any constructive feedback from agents or potential buyers   B) Over list your home from fair market value due to the blood, sweat and tears you put into it. Remember, the home's value is what someone is willing to pay for it, not what you feel it is necessarily worth. What does the market say??   C) When look...

If You Can't Beat Them ~ Join Them   Holiday Lights:  Most folks put up a few lights, maybe a blow up character or two, then we all have "THAT" neighbor. You know the one.    The one that "goes big or goes home".. LOL.  They pull out all the stops. This home is located in on our Maricopa subdivisions called Rancho El Dorado.  This home has become a staple to show folks visiting. But what is interesting is, this isn't the house that draws all the attention. Nope.    You see their neighbor had a small dilemma. How do you compete with something this great?  They came up with the perfect solution....   Yep, if you can't beat them, then do the next best thing.   LOL   The night I went to take this picture, there were 4 - 5 other cars stopping to admire this two-some. Pretty clever if I do sa...

How You Help and Hurt Your Home Sale   No one knows your home better than you do. Afterall you are the one that sweated over every upgrade you did. You installed those fans, put the screen door on, spent many weekends on that backyard patio and may have been crazy enough to tackle that bathroom remodel. The problem is, you also know the list you never did. Fixing that broken light, changing out that outlet that doesn't work, the window that you cracked with the rock from the lawnmower. You know about the neighbor that plays the music loud and the dog that likes to poop on your front yard every now and then. Sure you can fix the leak and change the light bulb but you can't get rid of the neighbor or the dog.    So why is this an issue?  Many folks do not like to leave their home during w...

So to help out, I've gathered many of them for you:  The majority of Maricopa (in town) use the following primary utilities.

Looking for a new rental home? How to avoid being scammed!   Yesterday I was speaking to a person who was in a desperate place and needed to find a rental home. Problem is, she probably wasn't going to qualify for a traditional MLS rental home and would need to look privately. It reminded me of this article I wrote earlier this year on my other blog and wanted to share it. Even if you don't live in Maricopa, AZ, these same tips apply in your area only the numbers might be different. ~~~ Maricopa is a great place to rent a beautiful home at really affordable prices. Since Maricopa does not have any apartments, many folks are excited to rent homes as low as $775 for smaller single stories to “mini” mansions for $1000. Ok, maybe not mansions but a 2800+ sq ft home is not too bad. Heck, we ...
