This Week: The median list price in Queen Creek, Az this week is $205,000.  The 1090 properties have been on the market for an average of 111 days.  With inventory and days=on-market basically unchanged and the Market Action Index increasing, the market is not sending strong directional signal for the near-term outlook. Supply and Demand: The market has started cooling and prices have recently plateaued.  Since we're in the Seller's zone, watch for changes in MAI.  If the MAI resumes it's climb, prices will likely follow suit.  If the MAI Drops consistently or falls into the Buyer's zone,  watch for downward pressure on prices.   One of the nicest homes in Queen Creek Arizona.

If you’re ready to enter the exciting new frontier of home ownership, one of your first steps will be to save up for a down payment that’s right for your budget and desired home. Even before scouting neighborhoods or finding a lender, starting a savings plan will put you in a much better position to buy your dream home. The general wisdom goes that new homeowners should save 5-20% of a home’s total sale price to put down for an initial payment. One thing to note is that if your down payment is less than 20%, you will be subject to private or public mortgage insurance payments. However, a 20% down payment simply isn’t affordable for some families. Get acquainted with a realistic number for you by visiting a mortgage calculator and plugging in your own current income stats.  Also, if you ...

The first stop on your Google search was probably Wikipedia’s very technical definition of escrow: a. An arrangement made under contractual provisions between transacting parties, whereby an independent trusted third party receives and disburses money or documents for the transacting parties, with the timing of such disbursement by the third party dependent on the fulfillment of contractually agreed conditions by the transacting parties, or b. An account established by a broker, under the provisions of license law, for the purpose of holding funds on behalf of the broker’s principal or some other person until the consummation or termination of a transaction; or, c. A trust account held in the borrower’s name to pay obligations such as property taxes and insurance premiums. In English Di...

When you first look into buying a home, it may seem like a difficult and complicated process. By understanding what to expect, you can keep the confusion and hassle to a minimum. Here is a breakdown of common steps to home buying, from just thinking about buying a home to becoming a homeowner. Step #1 – Get Prequalified Before starting your home search, find a mortgage company and get prequalified. Prequalification allows you to determine how much you may qualify for when house-hunting. Compare at least a couple of lending companies that have a dedicated home purchase division, as they will be more knowledgeable about the latest products and regulations. Even better, ask the lender to help you get preapproved, which means you are even farther in the process and have provided the necessa...
