Not only do I enjoy living in the community of Trilogy at Vistancia, I also enjoy selling homes here. I had a buyer in from Florida this week that is looking to make a move to Arizona and get away from the humidity and hurricanes of Florida. They looked at a lot of homes from Buckeye, Surprise, Goodyear all the way up to Cave Creek, and Anthem in the far north valley. After looking at homes in what you would consider "family communities" I decided to show them what an active adult community looks like. Of course Trilogy at Vistancia is not your typical retirement community. The majority of owners here still have a "day job" of some sort. With the 45 and up rule, there are a lot of us that enjoy this resort style living (pools, club, activities, etc.) and still work full time. After seei...

Update August of 2012 - Just found a blog thread that indicates the battle isn't over yet. Check out the following... http://www.vistancialive.com/msg/index.php?topic=10421.0 Proposed APS Power line route Bureau of Land Management Report From the map it does not appear that the Trilogy Vistancia residents will be affected but who knows now.  These are probably also the power lines that are referenced in the Sun City Festival public report.  Again... looking at the proposed map it does not appear the power lines will be very close to that community either bit final decisions aren't being made until the fall of 2013.  Stayed tuned... Update June of 2009 - The homeowners in Vistancia ROCK!  APS is going to use a different route.  One that will not affect people's home values in the Vistanc...

 The northern edge of the Sonoran Desert often has the reputation of being a barren place with very little to offer in terms of vegetation save for the famous saguaro cactus whose bloom is the state flower of Arizona.  Interestingly, with the rain that we have experienced down here this winter, we have seen all kinds of vegetation poking through including wild daisies which love to spring up on the hillsides.  This photo was taken from a moving car on the Carefree Highway, and doesn't do much justice to how beautiful the scene was, but shows just how green the desert can get this time of year.  If you ever get tired of the snow and ice like I did about 10 years ago, give us a call, and we can help you find that perfect desert getaway.

As part of my ongoing pursuit to stay ahead of the game when it comes to new construction, Sunday was my day to visit builders in the Lake Pleasant/Happy Valley area. I visited several builders and was excited to hear that home traffic/sales are picking up.DR Horton just opened a new area near the new Walmart at 99th Ave and Lake Pleasant Parkway and said they are already getting traffic. The offer 27 different homes in 5 areas that range from 1300-5100 sq ft with prices starting at $206,000. This is a growing area that offers easy access to the highway 101 and is located near shopping and dining. Just up the road a few miles I visited Engle Homes, Lennar and Centex Homes.Centex Homes kick off the home pricing at $257,400 and after walking the models I agree they are worth every penny. ...

I hate to self promote because that is not what I am about. The sad truth is that if you don't get your name out in front of people they won't know you exist. So here I am telling you a little bit about myself. We have all heard those ads on the radio. The famous line is, "I'm not trying to brag, I am applying for a job. I want to be your Realtor." I figure if you find this page it is because you are looking for a Peoria Arizona Realtor. The entire Phoenix area is a big city and Realtors are notorious for taking any business they can get. What I can promise you is that I only focus on Peoria Arizona real estate. Sure I know other parts of the valley, I have lived in Arizona most of my life. But what you won't find on my website is anything other than information about Peoria Arizona rea...

Our office has a meeting of the minds once a month and the first topic was about the activity level the office has been experiencing.  When asked, "How many of you have noticed more activity the past couple weeks?" everyone in the room raised their hand.It is too early to translate that into homes be bought and sold, but there is definitely a different vibe lately.Some of the higher producing Realtors that invest in a lot of property are talking like they are thinking about getting back into the market again.  None of them seemed to be real anxious but they are getting close.  Showings seem to be up, calls seem to be up, even leads coming in through lead router are coming more frequently.There is still an over supply of homes on the market, but there are a few zip codes that are not dec...

For those of you living in north Peoria, keep an eye out for the lane restrictions on 67th Avenue north of Happy Valley road.  The city of Peoria is beginning construction to connect Happy Valley from 67th Avenue (where it currently ends traveling west bound) through 91st avenue.  This will help everyone with their commute.  It should especially reduce the amount of traffic for our neighbors that live on 91st avenue north of Deer Valley road once completed.The current plan is to start blasting east of 91st Avenue (in mid February so it should be starting any day) to make the ground level in preparation for construction.  The project will be built in phases with the first section finished between 83rd and 67th avenues in the winter of 2008, and then the remaining section west of 83rd ave...

I was looking at all of the homes for sale that feed into the Coyote Hills elementary school.  My kids go to school there so these are all the homes around where I live.  There are 135 homes for sale right now in this area.  It is amazing how big of a disparity there is in what homes are listed for.I am amazed at how many smaller homes with less upgrades are priced higher than the larger more upgraded properties.  Overwhelmingly the smaller less upgraded home that are priced higher will only have one picture, or vague comments about the home.  As a Realtor looking for homes for my buyer, all I can assume is that there isn't much good about the home and that's why there is nothing to show.One particular thing you need to pay attention to is your competition.  These are your neighbors.  T...

Yes, the housing market is struggling.    I'm happy to report that the average selling price in Fletcher Heights has stayed relatively even.    In September 2007 two homes were sold in Fletcher Heights at an average sales price of $280,000.    In October five were sold at an average sales price of $287,300.   The average sales price in November slid back to $282,000 with seven homes sold.   December remained even at an average sale price of $283,000 with five homes sold.     If you want to find more information about Fletcher Heights, please view my website at Fletcher Heights or call me at (623) 640-0937.
