There are several reasons why Canadians invest in our real estate.  The first being that they are very smart and savvy investors.  They know a good (or great in some cases) investment when they see one.  Secondly, not only do they invest their money very wisely, but they buy in a nice vacation area as well such as Arizona or Florida.  Thirdly, they can't spend 100% of their time here, so Canadian investors get even more return on their money by renting out their property during the prime seasons.  Most of the time the investment home they choose is brand new in a maintained community, so renting it on VRBO is ideal for them.  We know many investors who do this.  In addition, they still get to enjoy their new investment when it is not rented.  Canadians watch our news every day - they sa...

We talked earlier about short sales and a list of documentation the seller must provide to us in order for the bank to even consider a short sale.  Well to review, in addition to being delinquent on your loan payments (mortgage), you have to sign an authorization for Terry & I as real estate brokers to represent you in the sale of your home.  This means you are authorizing us to discuss the details of your loan with the bank and provide the bank with information about the sales process of your home, a copy of the listing, any offers presented, any broker price opinions, etc.  In addition, you as a seller have a long list of homework.  It sounds like a lot, but in the long run, it is not considering you get to sell your home as a short sale and don't have a foreclosure haunting you for t...

As a very good friend of ours would say, "ABSOLUTELY!"  This is one of the best times to upgrade to a bigger home, downsize to a smaller home, or invest in real estate.  Not only are home values at an all time low, but interest rates are too.  So it is a win-win situation!  Of course, it's not as easy to buy a home as it was in 2005 and 2006.  There are specifical loan requirements that must be met, especially when buying investments.  First thing is you actually have to have a job now…I know....there was a time when it wasn't a requirement!  It is not difficult to buy if you have decent credit and if you are able to provide a down payment, typically 20% of the purchase price on an investment property.  Considering that most people invest in smaller homes, the prices are typically lower...

Many sellers don't understand a short sale and how it works.  They know they are having difficulty paying their monthly mortgage payment, whether it be loss of job, divorce, etc.  Having years of experience doing short sales, Terry & I specialize in them.  We have all the paperwork that most banks require to authorize us to negotiate the process on your behalf. What is a short sale?  A short sale is when you are behind on your home loan payments and need to sell your home.  We list your home as a short sale to try and sell it "short of" what is owed on the loan.  This takes some homework on your part to provide us with a lot of documentation.  This documentation is necesssary for the bank to even consider doing a short sale. Can't I do a short sale myself?  No, banks require that your h...

Friday was a Bad, Bad day.  I just recently found out that Wachovia doesn't want to fund my well qualified Canadian buyer's loan with FIFTY PERCENT DOWN in the thriving community of Anthem at Merrill Ranch in Florence (That's right, I said 50%). The property she was under contract to purchase was a beautiful 3600 sf home with a 3 Car garage, granite, 25k in flooring, corner wash lot, in Anthem at Merrill Ranch, for $197k! Does the bank really think the value of this home could drop to $100k? I just don't get it. The worst part is, now they want to keep her $5k earnest!! If anyone has had experience with getting these banks/servicing companies to refund the deposit, even though they technically have the right to keep it, I am all ears. HEELLLLLLLLLLLLPPPP!!! In this case it is actually S...

At Parkside Anthem Merrill Ranch one of the best amenities to the community (for the kids and big kids too!) is the Big Splash Water Park.  It has a beach entry, two sides, a tot pool, and a playground just to name a few things.  If you don't want to swim laps, play basketball in the outdoor aquatic center pool, or relax under an umbrella, then the Big Splash Water Park is for you.  Check out the pictures from our last visit in June!!  Thomas@thomasteam.info

Now that we have talked about hot weather, you are probably asking, "So what is cold in Florence AZ?"  About 60 degree temperature is my answer.  Yes, at night it can cool down into the 30s but by mid-day its back up into the 60s at the lowest which is in the winter months of December and January.  And don't forget 300+ days of sunshine, not partly sunny, but 100% sunny - not a cloud in the sky!!  It's beautiful.  Thomas@thomasteam.info
