Prescott Arizona has once again been voted one of the top places to retire in the U.S. CNNMoney.com in October rated Prescott Arizona as the #4 place to retire largely due to it already sizable population of people over 50 and plenty of learning opportunities at Prescott's Yavapai College.

This post is intended to illustrate the value of pricing real estate, both land and homes according to market values and not by the wants or needs of the seller. To make my point, I have made the chart below. In this illustration, the red line represents the market value of the property in question.  The green line across the bottom represents the value necessary for a quick sale which is normally determined by a BPO often ordered by a lender for properties by foreclosure. A foreclosure is also known as a REO by lenders. As listing agents, we don't really like these prices, but we must be aware of them in order to price each of our listings properly. The shaded red area indicates a pricing region that is above market value. The shaded green area represents aggressive pricing. The letter...

Today I was asked to locate a 40-acre parcel that could provide access to some good deer hunting. This parcel is in the Juniper Mountains near the intersection of Bucks Rd and Anvil Rock Road near Seligman, Arizona. This particular parcel is in Juniper Mountain Ranches, but Sierra Verde Ranch and Shadow Rock Ranch are also close by. It is in an area that has a checkerboard land use pattern. See my other blog post that explains the checkerboard. I have one property in mind that represents a good example of hunting property. It is Lot 9 in Juniper Mountain Ranches. It is 40 acres and abuts section 2 T20N R8W which is Arizona State Trust Land. If you want to see the vicinity map, you can see it at my Checkerboard land use post. Above is a topo map showing lot 9 in section 3. (If you right ...

The market that we are in right now is an awesome opportunity; It's without a doubt the best buyer's market that we've seen in our entire lives. The convergence of rock-bottom interest rates, record-high affordability, motivated sellers, willing lenders, and home prices that have started to inch back up after declining for more than two years means that NOW is the time to buy. Steve Murray, editor of REAL Trends, couldn't agree more. During a recent conversation, he said, "We are about to see the most incredible buyer's market that we've ever thought about in the history of our lives." The question is, do the buyers know this? This Graph shows the cost of a mortgage payment as a percentage of median income. As you can see 2010 has the lowest cost in the last decade! Now more than ever i...

Thinking about retiring in Prescott Arizona? My parents did the same thing 25 years ago. They searched the entire United States and parts of Canada only to pick beautiful Prescott AZ for their golden years. Located at an elevation of 5300 feet in the mountains of central Arizona, the City of Prescott (population almost 43,000 in 2009) was the original territorial capital of the Arizona Territory. This old mining town and now popular active adult retirement community borders the Prescott National Forest to the south and west. The towns of Prescott Valley (7 miles east) and Chino Valley (16 miles north), Dewey-Humboldt(13 miles east) and Prescott, together comprise what is locally known as the "Quad-City" area. This also sometimes refers to central Yavapai County in general, which would i...

Real Estate Agent Referrals are the bread and butter of my business here in Prescott Arizona. After nearly a decade of business I have come to some interesting conclusions about referrals. 1. Clients who find me via referral are about twice as likely to close a transaction with me then clients who find me in other ways; sign calls, craigslist and other online property marketing etc.    When a friend or family member says "hey you should really talk to Dave about helping you find the best deal on a bank owned home", there is a level of trust that automatically transfers from the friend or family member that attaches to the agent receiving the referral.  Since I track where my buyers and seller come from I can easily see that about half of my clients are referred to me from past clients, ...
