Home Buyers and Sellers need their own representation in the typically largest financial transaction of their lifetimes. Well things change in August 2024 when rules change as part of a National Association of REALTORS® settlement where Home Sellers must compensate their Broker and REALTOR® and Home Buyers must compensate their Broker and REALTOR®.  In the past Home Sellers and their real estate broker were compensated by the Seller and shared that commission with the Buyer's Broker.Does that mean a Home Buyer has to go at it alone unrepresented. No, that is not a wise thing to do. Rules will be clarified by August as various state REALTOR® associations  are developing new buyer broker agreements that set forth the new arrangements. A home seller has their agent and a home buyer should ...

For rural buyers seeking to purchase vacant land here in Mohave County, these individuals often see these words on real estate websites “water available,” “water in the street" or “rural water to the property line.”  Unfortunately, these words can be misleading; may fail to adequately describe the true availability of water and may fail to provide unseen potential costs.First, in Golden Valley, AZ and other unincorporated areas here in Mohave County, AZ, there are privately owned to shareholder owned to government improvement districts.  Each of these entities has their own pricing and policies.  Here in Golden Valley, there are four water firms of which one is currently an improvement district.Second, rural water is different from city water in that often city water may add fluoride to...

- April 2024 Scottsdale Housing Market Video - Here is a quick video overview of the Scottsdale, Arizona single-family home real estate market that covers the month of April. April 2024 - Video Scottsdale Active Listings The number of homes for sale was up slightly at the end of April. There were 1,256 homes for sale which represents a 1.8% increase over March and a 22.1% increase over April 2023. Average List Price for Scottsdale Homes I used to use median listing price data, but I no longer have accurate access to that information. So, I have started to track average listing prices. (Technically, the median price is a better indicator since the average price can skew one way or the other due to extremely low or extremely high list prices, but this will still give you a decent idea of ...
