                I have blogged about Schnepf Farms many times before. They are a great locally owned farm in Queen Creek, Arizona which is just about a 20 minute from from my home in Gilbert.  This time of year they put on their Easter Egg-Citement event which is happening on April 4th from 9am to 4pm.  Reservations for this event are strongly preferred as they try and keep it somewhat small so those participating have plenty of room to hunt. The hunts are divided up in to groups: 0-2 year olds 3-5 year olds 6-8 year olds 9 and Older Cost for this event is $25 per child (with lunch) or $20 (without lunch). There is no admission charge for Parents. Reservations will only be accepted until April 1st (No that isn't an April Fools Joke). Reservations to this event will include: Admission E...

So where does drinking water come from in Arizona? Most people don't really think about where our water comes from, but it is something we should all pay attention to and know the answer to because water is one of the most basic needs for survival, especially here in the desert! As your Queen Creek Realtor, I love being able to educate my clients not only on the local real estate market, but also about life in our beautiful Sonoran desert! If you live in a residential neighborhood in Queen Creek or San Tan Valley, then your water is typically provided by the Town of Queen Creek OR the home might be serviced by a private water company. There are a couple of those in the area that serve almost 100,000 residents, so having a private water company is fairly common. If you live in a more rur...

Hastings Farms Real Estate Market Report The real estate market in Hastings Farms is steady as we begin 2015. Sold home prices in 2014 decreased by 10.97% from the previous year and the average sold price for 2014 was $264,467. The days on market moved up slightly from November most likely due to the slowdown during the holidays. The absorption rate for December was 4.96 and this number tells us that we are currently experiencing more of a “balanced market” in the Hastings Farms neighborhood. If you are a home buyer, then the absorption rate will be important for you to consider when writing an offer on a home. If you are a home seller, then the absorption rate will be important for you to consider when pricing your home for sale. Absorption Rates Defined: 1 – 4: If the absorption rate ...
