It's hard to get close enough to get good footage of these highly entertaining visitors to my backyard. I did want to share it with you because Gambel Quail Redheads on Roller Skates) thrive in Fountain Hills. It's not uncommon to see a resident stopped in the middle of the road as a covey scurries across. The morning and evenings are filled with the voices of the Quail as they call their covey to roost. Many of the residents put out blocks of seed to encourage these birds to their yard just to watch the show they put on.     I hope you enjoy this video of the little peepers in action. If you listen close you can even hear them chirping to mom and dad as they snatch the remains of some bread crust. This is one of the many reasons I live in Fountain Hills and you should too! www.LiveInFo...

Fountain Hills Real Estate Market Conditions, July 2010 The Fountain Hills Real Estate Market continues to improve slowly. It looks like our market has bottomed at least as far as single family homes is concerned. Though this might not be the case for the rest of the valley, Fountain Hills is unique. It's small town feel and fantastic views continue to draw buyers. Investors are particularly interested in Fountain Hills as cash transactions dominated our market even when record low mortgage rates are readily available to the qualified buyer.       The figures used in the video were provided by the Cromford Report.     Mark Gridley Real Estate Consultant ReMax Sun Properties Fountain Hills, AZ www.liveInFountainHillsAZ.com

Fountain Hills, AZ Flying Old Glory Hi Friends! I hope you all had a great Independence Day.   I got up early and had an idea for a blog. Here in Fountain Hills we are a fairly patriotic crowd and enjoy flying the flag to express so. So I decided to set out with my trusty Sony Bloggie and shoot some pictures of the Fountain, The Veterans Memorial and some of the many flags around the Town of Fountain Hills. If you want to know a few of the technical details of this video visit the group Adobe Photoshop Elements on ActiveRain where I'll go into a few of the effects I used. I've just started using Adobe Elements Premiere 8 and my skill is improving with my blogging voice. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.

The Short Sale opportunity is here to stay for the foreseeable future. As qualified sellers and banks are jumping on board to sell these homes before they go into foreclosure, the 'system' for this type of sale is being perfected.  Overall these can be complicated sales, but for those buyers willing to take the plunge, you can purchase a wonderful property at a great price! And, for qualified sellers, the Short Sale is typically a better option than the foreclosure for eventually purchasing in the future. There is are benefits for lenders as well. The Short Sale is a much less expensive way to sell a property than the foreclosure.Therefore, it is a 'win - win' for everyone involved if it 'works'!Fountain Hills, Arizona currently has 36 short sale properties available.  They range in pri...

Fountain Park Fountain Hills, AZ Sunday is walk around the Fountain Park day for many Fountain Hills Residents. Some walk others might rollerblade or bike it. Today the weather is perfect for it. It's the middle of June and we had an unusually cool day.     A low of 65 degrees and a high of just 91 degrees. I wanted to take a video of what it's like to walk around the Fountain Park but that would have taken way to long. So being the creative TechnoRealtor I rigged my Sonie Bloggie with a magnetic tripod by Joby called a magnetic Gorillapod. It worked really good so expect future WheelEstate from me. Hope you like the walk About! The Fountain Park Fountain Hills, AZ features What used to be the the World's Tallest Fountain. It's been topped by a Fountain in Dubai. (Could you have guessed...

Living with Javelina,   Javalina, Myths and My Experiences.   Javelina are common visitors to the residents of Fountain Hills and Rio Verde.   I've hunted Javelina in the Archery season for 25 years when I was younger. I now prefer to just enjoy them rather than eat them. The Javelina are far from endangered and infact expanding in numbers and territory. I've seen Javelina as far north as Payson, AZ and have heard stories of sightings even further to the North. Generally it's thought of a desert creature. Javelina are curious by nature. They have very poor eyesight but a great ability to hear and smell. When intimidated their hair stands up, they emit a skunk type smell from the gland on the top of the butt. Sometimes they clack their teeth making a sound all most like to rocks being ba...
