I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays as much as I did. Let us take a moment to reflect on how the local 2020 housing market ended up and how it fared all year long. According to the Lake Havasu Market Report for December 2020, total sales and sale prices rose significantly from the end of 2019. H...

The end-of-year holidays are upon us. I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving. Just three weeks until Christmas and four weeks until we bid adieu to 2020. Our local real estate market continues to thrive. According to the Lake Havasu Market Report for November 2020, year-over-year sales and pr...

Havasu home buyers do not need a perfect FICO score to purchase a property. But a higher score increases your chances of loan approval. And the higher your score, the better your interest rate. With a median sale price of $365,000 last month, you need to get your credit in tip-top shape before yo...

As we enter the last quarter of the year, the local real estate market remains hot. According to the Lake Havasu Market Report for October 2020, the median sales price hit its highest mark ever. Total monthly sales hit their second-highest point for the year. And low inventory continues to create...

Ah. Fall is in the air. As our Lake Havasu weather begins to cool off (meaning temperatures in the 90s instead of 100+), it's a great time to explore the surrounding desert land. If your travels take you towards Parker, let me recommend a great pit stop in the middle of virtually nowhere: the Des...

For other parts of the US, October means a changing of the leaves and chillier weather. In Lake Havasu City, it means temperatures in the 90s for the most, with the last of the triple-digits beginning to fade away. Even our local real estate market remains hot, hot, HOT! According to the Septembe...

For several months now, the Lake Havasu real estate market fell squarely in the seller's favor. Once Governor Ducey opened the state back up, home sales exploded. Last month's total sales eclipsed August 2019's sales by over 25%. And sale prices hit their highest median ever. But millions of peop...

Usually, our Lake Havasu real estate market starts the year off mild and begins to pick up around spring (April/May). This year, thanks to COVID, we experienced a very tepid spring. But summer heated up in more ways than one. As Arizona began to open back up, people came out of hibernation. And t...

In the real estate industry, you play a lot of "hurry up and wait". You rush around trying to find the right property. When you do find "the one", you rush to put in an offer. Once the offer is accepted, you enter escrow. Then, you wait. I've provided a sort of Havasu home closing timeline below ...

Home sales figures and the median sale price hit their highest point of the year, according to the Lake Havasu Market Report for July 2020. Unfortunately, our inventory continues its deep dive. Until we see more listings hit the market, prices will continue to rise. That's great news for sellers ...

Even with COVID-19 affecting how we go about our daily lives, the Lake Havasu real estate market trudges on. Just last month, Havasu home sales saw an increase of more than 50% from May as the governor began to open up more Arizona businesses. If you're in the market for a new property, avoid the...

In late May, Governor Ducey began reopening the state back up. Our June 2020 Lake Havasu Market Report numbers show it, too. After four months of lower year-over-year numbers, last month's home sales finally showed a marked increase over last year's. How did the rest of the market perform? Read o...

COVID-19 concerns created record numbers of unemployment claims. Millions of people lost their jobs or found themselves with severely decreased hours each week.

So far, 2020 has proven a bit difficult for most Americans. Even though home sales started off really well in January, COVID-19 concerns shuttered several businesses. This left many local residents jobless. Buying a  Havasu home amid a nationwide shutdown wasn't necessarily at the top of many peo...

Money probably hits at or near the top of your list when you think about buying a new home. But there's so much more to purchasing a property than that. Square footage. Amount of bedrooms/bathrooms. Garage size. Swimming pool. Neighborhood. Inventory may be low right now on the local real estate ...

We're starting to see a little light at the end of the Coronavirus tunnel right now. The governors of many states across the country, including Arizona, started laying out their plans to open up businesses and get people back to work in phases. They hope their tiered plan of opening up keeps COVI...

But with social distancing orders in place here in Lake Havasu, REALTORS® no longer conduct open houses or offer in-house tours. Therefore, virtual tours and on-line photographs b...

We are living in some unprecedented times right now. Who would have thought major cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle would virtually shut down? With a global pandemic like COVID-19, businesses, organizations, and individuals must navigate a "new normal". The mayor asked...

Low inventory partnered with low-interest rates makes this a very interesting time in the Havasu real estate market. Buyers want to take advantage of the historically low sub-4% rates. But low inventory levels help keep prices up ($279,500 median sale price for February 2020). When it comes to Ha...

We appear to be on track for a fantastic first quarter in the Lake Havasu real estate market. According to the Lake Havasu Market Report for February 2020, sales were down slightly from last year but prices went up. Continued low inventory levels help push prices higher. Exactly how did the marke...
