May 2015 Market Update
TGIF!! May was a busy month here in the Valley of the Sun. An unseasonably cool spring finally just gave way to predictable triple-digit summer days. Mother's Day, Spa Week, Restaurant Week & Memorial Day came and went.

Real Estate is very strong. Rising values, rents, prices & sales volume is catching the attention of many. I was interviewed last week by our local NBC affiliate for a piece about rising rents-  causes, impacts, etc. I haven't seen it yet, but hope I painted an accurate picture of what's happening here.

I haven't seen the sheer volume of activity like this since my days of listing bank-owned homes years ago. I'm on the road a lot & working long hours. Last month, center needle in the chart above was 127.7. If it  hits 135, we'll be in a "Frenzy Market"!

In this update, check out my blogs about the dollars & cents of "location", the pitfalls of lowball offers and deal-breakers every buyer should know before buying a home. Check out my featured & upcoming listings. There's lots to see!

All this aside, I've become acutely aware of just how short life is. Jobs, houses & things come and go. It's family, friends and experiences that make up "life". Please don't take that for granted... Have a great weekend!

If you have specific questions, would like me to share property-specific info or just want to say "hi", please just call, text or email me. I'd love to hear from you!

For the last week or so, the Cromford Report has been putting out many statistics about inventory. The common denominator of all of these charts, data and analysis seems to be location. Yes- the first rule of real estate. Read more.

The Downside of Lowball Offers in a Seller’s Market

When I put my newest listing in MLS on Saturday at midnight, I hardly expected to have my first showing a mere 10 hours later. My seller was ecstatic! The kitchen remodel had dragged on way too long, but was paying off. Read more.

Deal Breakers Get in the Way of Buying the “Perfect” House

Yesterday I patted myself on the back for negotiating the sweetest deal in the Willo Historic District for some clients. It was an easy loan with a large down payment, no seller concessions and a 30-day close. What could go wrong… Read More.
