Many homeowners in the Phoenix area are finally in an equity position after being underwater for several years. If you've been wanting to sell but couldn't without going the short sale route, it's possible that now you can. The Phoenix area market saw a huge upswing in 2012 that brought average home values up by nearly 25%. Let me run a market analysis of your home for you to help you determine if you have the equity you need to sell . This is always free, and I will NEVER pressure you to sell. I'm happy to be a source of knowledge and information for you anytime that I can be.
I've helped many 1st-time buyers realize the American Dream of owning their own home when they didn't think it was even a possibility. It's easier than you might think! You can buy in Phoenix for less than rent for the first time since 2002, and with FHA financing, you can buy with as little as 3.5% down. FHA credit requirements are not as strict as they are for a conventional mortgage. They allow for a couple of dings and dents in the past, and even some major issues too, if enough time has passed. FHA also offers great incentives on many HUD acquired homes specifically aimed at aiding first-time buyers in our extremely competitive market. For more information on these programs and how they could help you, contact me!
If you are looking in an outlying area of Phoenix like San Tan Valley, Maricopa, or Casa Grande, you may be able to purchase a home with no money down using a USDA loan. These are available to buyers who will occupy the property after closing, meet the standard minimum requirements for the mortgage, where the property is located in specific rural areas as determined by the USDA. Ask me, and I can provide a map to show which areas are included.
I have extensive experience in short sale listings. If you are underwater in your home and need to sell- call me. There are options available to you! Short selling may or may not be right for you. Let's look over your specific situation in detail, and we can work together to find the best solution for your financial well being. Your lender(s) may require you to be delinquent on your mortgage payments before considering your short sale, and/or ask you to contribute cash toward the deficiency as a requirement to approve the sale, BUT that might be avoidable too. Short sales can be tricky to navigate, and if you are behind on your mortgage, time is NOT on your side. Don't leave it up to just anyone to handle yours.
Investors- I work with investors to improve your real estate portfolio. Are you taking negative rents on your investments right now? Underwater? There are alternatives to foreclosure or short selling unique to some investors. Your investment properties may not qualify for tax relief on the deficiency balance (ask your CPA to see if yours does). If yours doesn't, a short sale could leave you with a huge tax bill at the end of the year. Maybe your mortgage servicer declined a loan modification or short sale already, or asked you to make an unrealistic cash contribution for them to approve it. I may be able to help you with alternative options that won't damage your credit, but instead, improve your bottom line.

Dawn is extremely knowledgeable & aggressive in her field. I would reccommend her to anyone who is looking for a home to purchase or sell.
We have purchased several homes from Dawn. She is very professional and we have always felt comfortable with her advice. When we have called Dawn and told her what we were looking for she has found many choices for us to look at by the very next day. She was very patient when we had her show us over 10 houses before we could make our decision! Every time she has helped us find exactly what we were looking for. Dawn knows her job very well and we will use her for sure when we buy again.
I work on in the title insurance industry and have known Dawn and her work for almost 7 years. I find her to be knowledgeable, an aggressive advocate for her clients, and most important she deeply cares about her clients' best interests. I give an A+ rating for Dawn!
I highly recommend Dawn as she is extremely knowledgable, professional and always willing to go the extra mile helping people resolve problems. I consider Dawn as one of the "Go To people" in the real estate world and she is quite the short sales specialist. I've known dawn for many years and when the time came that my daughter needed to short sale her home, I called Dawn. She has always been very successful the entire time I have known her. Great sense of humor to go along with the package! She is definitely at the top of her game in her expertise. I have recommended her many times to friends and collegues alike! I actually met Dawn when I worked for home builder year ago. Glad I did!
Dawn is very knowledgeable, she will fight for you and make sure your needs are met. Dawn became more than a trusted advisor she was also a friend through out my home buying process. I whole heartedly recommend her as a broker. Thanks for everything Dawn!
I worked with many realtors over the years, and as a rule I am not a fan. Until I met dawn, I was the one doing a lot of the work for them (investigating, searching, push for documents, answers, etc.). Dawn, on the other hand actually does her job and earns her money. She has answers before I come up the questions. She knows her business. I will not use any other realtor in Phoenix, period.
I recommend Dawn Marthini as a real estate agent who's provided me a great service in all my real estate transactions. As a real estate investor, I needed someone who's very responsive and knowlegeable in this competitive business. Regardless of the day of the week or time of day, she's been available to get contracts submitted, provided me with the necessary comps and perform property searches. If you need a real estate agent who looks after your interests, is very responsive, professional and knowledgeable of the market, Dawn Marthini is person you should consider. Hands down, she's the best real estate agent I've dealt with over my 12 years of being a real estate investor.
