Homes in South Scottsdale that Just Sold, now wouldn't that be some useful information?      One of the frustrating points for a person who is searching for a home in a specific area is that it is very difficult to find a current list of homes that have just sold.  If you are a buyer or a seller knowing the price that a home sold for in your neighborhood can be very valuable in determing what you the buyer will offer for a home or if you are the seller what would be a prudent price in which to list your home.      I have spent a great deal of time walking the neighborhoods of South Scottsdale and holding many open houses and the one statment or question that always surfaces is; "why can't we get hold of a current list of homes that have sold and at what price"?      So to better empower...

Help, Zillow & Trulia just fell through the Ice.  This week's 5-11-14 Real Estate Trend Report by Jim Miner in South Scottsdale, which is prepared by Michael Orr at Arizona State University, shows the inaccuracies of the market predictions of Zillow (Z) and Trulia (T).  As we all know, these two sites Z & T provide a great deal of real estate information, however their predictions as to the market performance have grossly missed the target here in the greater Phoenix real estate market.  Michael Orr who prepares the Cromford Report has taken the time to do the research which shows the actual performance and returns here in #SouthScottsdale and the rest of the greater Phoenix real estate market. When a company decides to begin the practice of real estate market trend predictions they sho...

In the mid-week 5-8-14 Real Estate Trend Report by Jim Miner in South Scottsdale shows charts of pending sales over the course of the past several years.  Three major cities in the valley of the sun are shown; Glendale in the west valley, Phoenix in the central valley, and Mesa in the east valley. The significance of pending sales is it shows the strength potential of the short term real estate market trend.  Generally speaking, the first part of the year will show a building of strength in the market which then peaks in May or June and thereafter has a downward bias into the end of the year. Some of the major news outlets keep talking about how the real estate market is continuing to strengthen and the housing recovery is well underway.  One must remember that different parts of the co...

This week ending 5-4-14 Real Estate Market Trend Report by Jim Miner @ South Scottsdale shows just how weak our real estate market in #SouthScottsdale and Maricopa County has been over the course of the last year. As a Buyer or a Seller a weak real estate market should not be something to run from rather if one is properly equipped with the right tools a weak market often provides a window of opportunity.  The trap the Buyer typically falls into is the one of trying to pick a market bottom as well the Seller is always trying to pick a market top.  I have seen the two tools that buyers and sellers use most often are "what the neighbor said their home sold for, and the valuation by Zillow".  The bottom line is both of these tools have almost a perfect record of being incorrect.  In the in...

Remember to Wash your Home with the Desert Green Snake if you are getting ready to sell.  Here in South Scottsdale and the rest of Maricopa county we get desert dust storms, called Haboobs,  during the monsoon season. If you own a home that has stucco, (particularly skip trough), on the outside it will trap some of the dirt from the dust storms.  Also, most homes have sun screens and they trap the dirt, as you know when you take the screens off for cleaning, so it is very important to spray/wash down the outside of the home before you put it on the market for sale. Some folks think the home needs to be repainted because the outside paint just looks "tired", when it fact it just needs to be washed down.  Most of the time a simple garden hose will work fine but if the home is really dirty...
