Much like the rest of the Phoenix Metro Area, Queen Creek has experienced a big decline in inventory.  Year over year, active listings are down 73%!  During the beginning of the shut down for the pandemic, the increased inventory is obvious but the continued downward trajectory made up for the increase.  New listings for 2021 are sluggish at best.The Median List Price in Queen Creek/San Tan Valley is currently $399,000 - up from $300,000 in January, 2020!  Considering the Median Price is $399,000, it's interesting to see how many sales are selling over list price.  Check out these numbers!  HUGE demand in the Queen Creek/San Tan Valley area.  Considering there is low inventory and buyers are paying over list price, it stands to reason that if all the current inventory sold, they'd be ou...

Setting the post tension slab on a new home - New home Construction I get asked quite a bit, what is a Post Tension slab and why is it so important when building a home. Well, a "post tension" slab is a concrete slab that has steel cables running through it, they have been placed under 33,000 plus or minus, pounds of tension. This tension makes the concrete slab and foundation much stronger than concrete without reinforcement and it helps reduce cracking. The benefit of post-tensioned concrete, is its stronger, and more flexible than conventional steel-reinforced concrete. According to the "Concrete Network", post tensioning helps reduce cracking from shrinkage as the concrete dries, and hold together any cracks that do form. Builders have been doing this since the 1960's, only problem ...

For your protection. Get a home inspection and other important info Not many home buyers realize it, but they are entitled to a home inspection. It surprises me when I am educating my clients, once an offer is accepted, we have several key items to accomplish during this period. In Arizona, we have 10 calendar days to inspect the home, check for any and all structural items of concern, check for termites, ensure all the electric and plumbing components are functioning properly, this also allows the buyer to Google the home address and its surrounding areas to make sure they are comfortable with the home, its area and its community. In Arizona, the professional home inspector, checks all the components in the home including, the dishwasher, range/oven, microwave (if its built in), the AC...

Distressed properties - those that are "under water" where more is owed on the property than will be available from the proceeds of a sale of the property - are thankfully far fewer than during the crash during the latter years of the previous decade. Still - some do exist - and Short Sales are still a viable option when faced with a "must sell" scenario of an "under water" property. Currently running at less than 3% of the closed transactions every month in our MLS, homeowners in that 3%, whether in Queen Creek or another part of the valley, can still use our help. The first step is to contact us so we can schedule a complimentary confidential consultation to discuss how the short sale process works, and the considerations for your particular circumstances.   Careful up front planning ...

While the numbers of Short Sales and REOs in Queen Creek are way down from the staggering levels following the market crash about 10 years ago, there are still some properties "under water" and some that have received a Notice of Default, the first step in the process that will result in the Trustee's Sale on the courthouse steps. It's always sad to see people give up and walk away from a home, particularly when alternatives exist which may well be better for them and their lien holders. We've learned that often those who "opt" to let the home go to foreclosure "by default" often believe that their personal circumstances prevent them from doing a Short Sale.   Circumstances such as: Multiple Home Loans IRS Income Tax Liens Past Due Child Support Past Due HOA Fees ...and the list goes on...
