Oh, but that little house was turned out the day it landed on the multiple listing service! The hardwood floors all scrubbed and polished. The smell of freshly cut lawn and bougainvillea greeting new arrivals as they stepped out of Mazda Miatas and Chevy Tahoes and Ford Fusions.  The windows so ...
The current market does not favor buyers.  I repeat, the current market does not favor buyers. Allow me to explain.  For months, if not years, you have been told that the glut of housing inventory makes for a buyer’s market of epic proportions. Why, the ancient Greeks themselves would write song...
Just about anyone who has spent any time at all in Scottsdale is familiar with the planned community of McCormick Ranch.  A community which includes some 23,000+ residents, many are less familiar with the approximately 50 individual subdivisions that fall under its umbrella.  With radical differe...
