With all of the conflicting information in the news right now surrounding our Phoenix real estate market, what do home sellers really need to know?


As we mentioned in a previous video, contract activity dropped almost 49% during a six-week period between March and April. During this slowdown, many people took their homes off of the market. They weren’t sure they even wanted others to look at their homes given the COVID-19 situation. There was a slowdown in buyers entering the market as well. 



That slowdown, however, has passed. Contract activity has increased lately, and this is great news for sellers. Due to this new influx of buyers, you have a great opportunity to get top dollar for your home. Keep in mind that there are fewer cash buyers out there, which means fewer i ...

What is our market doing in June 2020? Though we’re definitely still dealing with COVID-19 here in Arizona, things are starting to open up a bit. 
 
There was a 39% drop in activity over the course of roughly six weeks (March through mid-April), and only now that we’re another six weeks beyond that, the effects of that sudden decline are really starting to show up in the data. There’s been a 31% decrease in sales, but this is hardly surprising; it’s hard to sell homes if no homes exist on the market to be sold. 

 
However, what is truly surprising—and what’s not being reported widely yet—is that we’ve had a 40% increase in accepted contracts in just the past four weeks. We find it important to share this fresh stat because those who are in the mark ...

With today’s climate, many homeowners wonder if they can possibly sell their homes without compromising their family’s safety. Even though much has changed because of the pandemic, real estate is still moving forward for those who need to buy and sell.

In short, yes, you can safely sell your home; you’ll simply need to implement a few safety measures. How far you’ll need to go does depend on the house itself. For example, if your home is vacant, not a whole lot needs to be done, since you and your family’s safety isn’t in question there.


However, if you occupy the home you’re trying to sell, here are the best practices:

1. Take great pictures and videos of your property. You don’t want a bunch of looky-loos wandering through your home, so be sure tha ...

Should you sell your home to an investor?


Many Phoenix residents have owned their home for five, seven, 10, or even 20 years, and these homes may need some updating that’s been put on hold--- The reality is, we’ve seen a great deal of movement in our market during that period, and these same homeowners may have some equity they’d like to use. There’s also hidden, untapped equity we can help you access as well.
