Home Prices in Avondale AZ for April 2013 Avondale AZ Home Prices The market has been cooling over time and prices have recently flattened. Despite the consistent decrease in Market Action Index (MAI), we're in a Seller's Market (where significant demand leaves little inventory available). If the MAI begins to climb, prices will likely follow suit. If the MAI drops consistently or falls into the Buyer's zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.  If you are considering buying a home in Avondale, you can still find some deals but you need to have a good real estate agent who understands the market.  With the current home prices in Avondale, don't wait to long to jump into the market.   The median list price in AVONDALE, AZ 85323 this week is $146,569. The Market Action Index has been t...

  Buying a Home Is Cheaper than Renting   Buying a home is 44% cheaper than renting in America’s 100 largest metro areas, according to a recent study by Trulia.   The savings accrued when buying as opposed to renting varied upon location. Buying is less than half the cost of renting in 46 of the 100 largest metros. The lower saving rates were in California and New York and the highest were in the Midwest. The savings varied from 19% in San Francisco to 70% in Detroit.   Those areas with a higher savings rate include Memphis (62%), Kansas City (60%), and Indianapolis (58%). Those areas with a lower savings rate include Los Angeles (35%), New York (26%) and Honolulu (23%).   The report’s calculation assumes a 3.5% 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, 20% down, itemized tax deductions at the 25% b...

    How To Protect Your Frost Sensitive Trees and Plants   1. Know which plants in your garden are frost sensitive. Most common are Bougainvillea, Hibiscus, Natal Plum, Cape Honeysuckle and Red Bird of Paradise.   2. Plant sensitive plants in places that minimize frost. Favorable planting spots include south or west sides of property, near the pool, close to block walls, rocks or concrete, under roof overhangs or patio extensions.   3. Protect plants from frost damage by covering with sheets, light blankets or burlap. Do not place heavy blankets or plastic as these may damage the plant.   4. Remove frost covers late-morning of the next day. Don't remove covers if it is still dark or if it is just after sunrise. 5. If frost gets to your plant, don't remove the damaged parts.
