Swimming, Fishing. Camping. Offroad racing. Bicycling. We love it all! One thing I never quite understood, th...

When you buy a Havasu home, you take on any issues (visible or hidden) that come along with it. Even a newly constructed home may have a problem or two. If you are not ready to take on this responsibility, you might not be ready for homeownership just yet. Performing a home inspection before purc...

When thinking about purchasing a home, most people only consider the financial side of the equation. Do I have enough money saved up for a downpayment? How much are closing costs? What about paying for inspections? Is my FICO score high enough to qualify me for a loan? Few people stop to consider...

Buying a Lake Havasu home is an investment. Whether it is your first home or your tenth one, you need to come up with some money to make it happen. Like many other areas of your life, you must pay for insurance to cover yourself in case of unforeseen circumstances. Lenders require that you pay PM...

Even during a year like we experienced in 2020, the Lake Havasu real estate market boomed. Many buyers find that some of their stress comes from a misconception of the h...

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...

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 ...
