Here in Flagstaff, AZ, we're known as having a seasonal market.  Many area sellers are chomping at the bit to take their homes off the market for the season and will relist in the Spring.  And while that's all well and good, I consistently see reasons to remember that there are people buying and selling year round in Flagstaff.  My buyer's agent in Flagstaff has been incredibly busy lately with our team generated leads.  I just got off the phone with her, and as of right now she's written 3 contracts in 3 days.  2 of the contracts are opening escrow today, and one is still in negotiations.  She is meeting with another buyer tomorrow who is ready, willing, and able.  This buyer has stated that they are particularly excited about one of the homes they will be viewing tomorrow.So Stacey is...

My clients "M" and "K" were looking for the perfect little second home in Flagstaff, AZ.  What was most important to them is to find something that had easy bike access to Lake Mary Road.  K is a cyclist, and Lake Mary Road is the best road to ride as a road cyclist.  She really wanted to find a home that would allow her to just jump on her bike and hit the road.  She didn't want to have to load her bike up into her car and drive to an ideal point before gearing up and hitting the road on her bike.Their ideal price range was under $250,000.  In Flagstaff, that can be a challenge! They also wanted something with at least a small yard where their 5 dogs could easily play.Knowing what they wanted, I knew I'd have to keep an eye open for new listings, pocket listings, and for sale by owners...

In the past week, I needed to travel to my old home town of Chicago for a family event, and to Las Vegas for the Realtor.com Success Summit.  And as much a I loved seeing my family and increasing my industry knowledge, I couldn't help but miss my home in Flagstaff, AZ.Driving back into Flagstaff at the end of these travels, I felt a sigh of relief and a stirring of excitement.  Home.  And not just any home - but home in Flagstaff.  I've called many towns home in my life, but none have brought me the peace and joy that living in Flagstaff brings.And I'm not alone - Flagstaff has been noticed nationally for being one of the Happiest Cities in the US by Yahoo Finance, and is consistently named one of the best towns in America by Outdoor Magazine. So what is it that makes Flagstaff, AZ such...

What should a real estate investor look for when purchasing their next rental property?  These tips are good for any market, although I wrote them based on purchasing investment property in Flagstaff, AZ - a college town with a focus on tourism.Cash Flow: It may seem obvious, but the most important factor in purchasing your income property is to work the numbers. Will this property contribute to your bottom line? Your cash on cash return determines the answer to that question. That is not determined by the market value of the property, but rather how much cash came out of your bank account to purchase the home. For example, if your rental income less expenses equals $200 per month, you are earning a positive cash flow of $2400 per year. If you used $40,000 as your down payment, your cas...
