In 1975, "Jaws" made everyone rethink swimming in the ocean. But we live by a lake. We're safe, right? Not according to "Pirahna 3D" (Havasu trivia: that movie shot right here in Lake Havasu City back in 2010). This summer, experience "Jaws 2" on the big screen...in the water...at Jaws Invasion L...

Some homebuyers purchase a property with the intent of staying in it forever. Others consider it a stepping stone to something else down the road. Still others buy a property simply as an investment to sell for a profit as quickly as possible. But if you sell too soon, you may incur a Capital Gai...

We all like a great deal. When making a large purchase (like on a Lake Havasu home), you want the best deal possible. Sometimes, that may mean offering more than the list price. Sometimes, though, a lowball offer might be the way to go. However, that's not always the case and it does come with a ...

Lake Havasu City acted as the "go to" vacation spot for decades. Then, as the California real estate market skyrocketed in price, buying a vacation home or investment property made sense for our neighbors to the west. In fact, our secondary market is second among the top markets in the country. I...

Buyers saw your Havasu house, fell in love, and put in an offer. Congratulations! Hold on a minute. You've heard the expression "don't count your chickens before they hatch".

I've said it before. Water factors heavily into the Lake Havasu lifestyle. Even though we sit in the middle of the desert, the Colorado River runs right by us. Thankfully, that means endless hours of fun out on the water just about every day of the year. But, with great fun comes great responsibi...
