For those of you considering buying or selling a home in Trilogy up in Peoria, AZ, I just posted resale home quarterly sales figures that go back to January of 2008. Sales were up this last quarter but the sad fact of the matter is, most of the homes were sold as foreclosures or short sales. Even the majority of homes not technically listed as a Trilogy short sale were still sold below the sellers original purchase amount. In looking at the tax records it would appear there are about two dozen more properties that are scheduled to go into foreclosure. Some of these may be successfully negotiated as short sales but others you will undoubtedly see come up on my Trilogy at Vistancia Foreclosures web page. This is a great opportunity for buyers to pick up some gorgeous properties at a huge...

Founded in the 1880s, Peoria is a suburban community located about 11 miles from Central Phoenix, named for after the hometown of families from Peoria, Illinois, who moved to the area to work the fertile land created by the Arizona Canal.  One of its best-known attributes is the Peoria Sports Complex, Cactus League Spring Training home to the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners. In addition to sports, however, Peoria has quietly built a reputation for bringing arts and culture to the West Valley.  According to GreatSchools.net, Peoria has some of the best schools in the West Valley. Today, the city is home to some 85,000 residents and covers about 117 square miles northwest of Phoenix. As of March 2009, the median sales price for a home in Peoria was $174,000.

I knew it was just a matter of time before we would see positive data and although it is not huge news, existing home sales are up, according to the NAR. This in conjunction with low interest rates and a surge of home buyers....I think we better start preparing for a slamming summer. I myself am getting really busy with buyers and look forward to adding additional buyers to my client base. Are you other local AZ agents seeing the buyers surface and getting ready to buy? Are they informing you, WHY, they are deciding to buy now? Is it the tax credit, low rates or lower home prices....or all of the above. Search the most updated list of homes available for sale with a click of the mouse, using the simple map search.

There is a great little Peoria AZ new home development tucked away near 79th Avenue and Deer Valley Road. I recently toured these homes again recently and I have updated my website page with pictures and floor plans of the models. The homes range from the mid $200,000s to the mid $300,000s.  The most exciting thing about these Peoria AZ new homes is that Columbia Communities (the builder) has so many optional design features in the floor plans that you can probably create the perfect home for your family. If you are searching for a new home for sale in Peoria Arizona then please take a look at my Peoria AZ new homes page.  If you would like to tour the development, please learn a little about me, your Peoria Arizona Realtor, and if you think we would be a good match to work together giv...

When the City of Peoria introduced curbside recycling a year ago, they were hoping it would create a 15% diversion rate for recycled waste.  Happily, Peoria residents exceeded their expectations by helping the city collect over 15,000 tons of recyclable waste, for a 23% diversion rate.  As a "thank you" for residents' efforts, the city is offering free tickets to the final night game of the season for the Peoria Saguaros vs the Peoria Javelinas at the Peoria Sports Complex on Thursday, November 12th.  You can download your free coupons by visiting their website.  If you are one of the first 500 visitors to bring a non-recyclable plastic grocery bag, you will receive a reusable grocery bag courtesy of local Peoria Walmarts.  The reusable grocery bags are a great way to reduce the use of ...

Friday last after months of waiting, begging, cajoling and some praying we got a short sale closed for a young family about to have their first child and first home together. I would not wish this ordeal on any client, the timing the uncertainty and the indifference was terrible. the final insult was on the HUD, 6% commission, 3.5% to the listing agent and 2.5% to the buyers agent, nice especially as we did all  work.

As a major suburb of Phoenix, Peoria offers a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of its big city neighbor, even though it is the 9th largest city in the state.  Somehow, despite its size, Peoria keeps its small town atmosphere in check.  The sunny weather provides for some amazing outdoor recreation, including watersports at Lake Pleasant, golf, tennis, dozens of parks, hiking, biking, camping and even spring training grounds for the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres, both of which are major league baseball teams.  Over the years, Peoria has even been quietly building a solid reputation as a mecca for culture and art in the Southwest, as evidenced by the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts and a multitude of galleries and museums in the area.  The Peoria Unified School Dis...
