The City of Prescott and Town of Prescott Valley plan to drill wells, construct a pipeline and  pump about 8,000 acre-feet of groundwater from the Big Chino Sub-basin aquifer northwest of Paulden. The aquifer holds a total of about 6.8 million acre-feet of water. The two towns with population that totals around 70,000 people are entitled to pump the water which is only 0.118 % of the capacity of the aquifer.  The Salt River Project, SRP currently is mounting legal challenges to the constitutionality of the law that allows for this important project.In 1994 Prescott decided to sell its 7,200-acre-foot CAP allocation in exchange for rights to the Big Chino Water Ranch supply. The deal made perfect sense: building a pipeline from the Colorado River was not and still is not feasible or cost...

Is anyone doing virtual tours on land?  We have found a way to show off scenic and remote land.  This method would also work for showing commercial property as well.  Here is a screen shot showing one of my listings. Notice that the red "KW" is a marker that goes with the entire property. On clicking on the red "KW" a small window pops up that lists a short description and a small photo. On clicking on the small photo, the viewer is taken to a TourFactory virtual tour that is framed on my own website. My son, Darin Mosier, has done the development of this system. Here is a screenshot that shows the screen that handles the data input for this property.  Notice that the latitude and longitude inputs provide for absolute positioning of points on the map. Another form, similar to this one, ...

I like to write about things I am learning in the hopes that I can share some knowledge with others and also to help refine my thoughts on the process.  For the last year or so I have been working on helping Mountain Oak School in Prescott Arizona, where my 6 and 11 year old children go purchase their own property. For over 10 years the school has been leasing a Prescott property that has seen better days. Anyway we have identified a promising property that is almost four times larger than the current property and we are going through the process of obtaining a conditional use permit from the city. We began this process by meeting with the city in what they call a "pre- application conference". That's where they explain the conditional use permit process and each of the city and county ...

The people who came up with this idea have hit upon something that can change politics in Washington DC forever.  Their idea is to get politicians to agree to spend 75% of their time in offices local to their constituents. They could telecommute just like many of the rest of us.   Notice that their solution favors no political party. A candidate pledging to follow this plan can use it as a means of satisfying a large number of potential voters. If one candidate signs for it, the opposing candidate will have to do the same or potentially lose the votes associated with doing the RIGHT (vs wrong)  thing. A couple of candidates here in Arizona have committed to do it. Let's work on the rest of them starting right here in Arizona Congressional District One!

I signed on to Active Rain about three years ago but never did much with it until the last few weeks.  I run Google Adwords and have been buying some placement in paid clicks.  One of my websites (I have several)  contains a summary of my listings at http://PrescottsLandMan.com This website shows a thumbnail photo of each listing and has a short description. The photos link to my Tour Factory virtual tours which I have framed to show on my main website at JohnMosier.com. I like to frame my virtual tours in order to keep my site visitors on my site as long as possible. Enough background! The screenshot below, taken from my Google Analytics account, shows the reason I am writing this post. I was very excited to see the gain in the traffic on this website. I have spent almost nothing on pa...

I just filed my paperwork to become a Republican Precinct Committeeman here in Prescott, Arizona.  We had our first meeting of the year today. They had the meeting room set up for about 60 to 70 people before the meeting started. As the time grew near, they brought in several more tables for four. A little while later they started adding rows of chairs along one side of the room.  The room was filled with people and candidates who were full of passion.  I had been a PC about four years ago, and our meetings were never like this. I stayed for an hour after the meeting was over and there were still people talking when I left. I am excited about the passion I saw and felt at the meeting.  One thing I did notice was that there were very few people under 50 at this meeting, with many in thei...

Last week I was asked to help a buyer purchase a bank owned home in Talking Rock Ranch. This is a high end gated golf community about 20 miles north of Prescott. Because many of these golf course properties were purchased at the height of the market in 2005 an 2006 as second homes, they were particularly hard hit by the declining market. Now we have about 80% of the listings made up of REO homes. One home in particular had been priced far below the rest and made it amazingly afordable, (priced about 35% of its original sale price in 2005). At the point my client contacted me, there were already two other offers submitted to the listing agent. My goal was to get my client's offer submitted and accepted ahead of the first two. Often with REO listing agents (L.A), they will tell you exactl...

Our economy is not going to recover as long as the present administration allows their agenda to interfere with doing the things that will allow it to get better.  I believe the answer to that is a change in power in Congress so we can get the corruption out.  Movements such as "Flip this House" and The Revolution of 2010 will have an impact and will lead us to this end. I have been involved with the Tea Party here in Prescott, Arizona. We plan to vote out RINOs at all levels here. We have a meeting of Precinct Committeemen here in Prescott this Saturday. It will be interesting to see how many of the people that I see at the TEA Party events show up as new PCs. I believe that the Tea Party movement here in Arizona is strong enough to get ALL the democrats out of their congressional seat...

Charly Gullett is an author and a true patriot. He has written a book that you all ya'll should know about. I bought one of the first books he delivered.  His book is published by Warfield Press.  He has a new book entitled The Tea Party Handbook.  Both of these books should be in the hands of any and every Tea Party Patriot.  We think Charly and his good friend and fellow Patriot, Dr. Terry Lovell, "The Professor of Freedom," also a Prescottonian will be key players as we start The Revolution of 2010 on these same courthouse steps. It should be noted that Barry Goldwater kicked off his campaign for president on these same steps.  If you don't know about Prescott, Arizona, check out why we call it "Everybody's Home Town."   Check out the video of Patriot's Day Celebration, April 19, 200...

I have a copy of the Constitution of the United States. A friend and fellow agent found this passage.US Constitution, Article II, Section. 4. "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on impeachment for, and Conviction of Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and misdemeanors. It seems to me that if we can get a majority in Congress in 2010, we can get the rest of the corruption out this way! Isn't that ENCOURAGING! If you don't believe it can happen, check out this article.TEAR DOWN THIS WALLSuppose that I had asked you, in the mid-1980s, what you thought it would take to bring down the Berlin Wall? What would you have said? I can imagine the answer. Perhaps another world war. Perhaps some kind of multilateral, long-term r...

So I have been reading about Facebook Fanpages here on Active Rain. I have to say it feels a little strange creating a fanpage for yourself even if it is for my business. The idea is that the typical people who find themselves on my Facebook page are friends, family memebers and others who very likely don't give a fig about my latest listings. So I created a separate Facebook page called, Dave Conners, My Prescott Realtor for people who do want  good information about the Prescott Foreclosure market.  This blog gets automatically exported to my Facebook page along with listings, but with the added attraction of user comments. So I guess the user interactivity is the real improvement.  Just keep learning, trying new techniques to be the best I can today.   Dave Conners enjoys learning ne...

Two years ago when my little Prescott Arizona brokerage merged with Keller Williams I made the move because it was the path of least resistance. Very soon I realized that the same small town, family oriented feeling I was used to was available to me at KW but now I had tons and tons of great support and education to go along with that great vibe. I read the "Millionaire Real Estate Agent" and learned. Soon after I attended a "Shift" tour which included among others, Gary Keller. The tour included the book "Shift". This book is simply amazing in the quantity of detailed information necessary to excel in a changing market. The writing is also a joy to read. I find myself going back again and again and finding more useful information each time. In fact I find so much value in this book tha...

Prescott, Arizona. Patriots Day Rally - April 19th, 2009 Patriot's day at the Prescott City Courthouse was both a festive and sobering affair. Those attending carried signs supporting conservative patriotism. Prescott, Arizona which is a bulwark for Conservative views has played host to Berry Goldwater and recently John McCain launching their presidential campaigns from the steps of the Prescott Courthouse yard. There was joyful bluegrass music, and the gentle tones of Prescott's local "Sweet Adeline's" singing group. But there were also stirring speeches as the Conservative base has begun to awake to their freedoms being chipped away. Strong support can be seen from the attendees as the speakers struck the chords of liberty. The speakers included were the following: Ken Bennett - Arizo...
