Prescott, AZ Real Estate News

The Mountain Club, Prescott AZ historic community in Ponderosa Pines, is quintessentially Prescott in many people's minds.  Located less than 2 miles to Prescott's downtown Courthouse Square, the Hassayampa Mountain Club offers full time or part-time weekend getaway living in the tall Prescott Pines.  Narrow roads, mostly paved, wind along meandering streams, through boulder rich landscapes in the mountainous ponderosa and oak forest. Dating back to 1926, The Mountain Club is the oldest planned community in Arizona!  Many of the early residents built cabins as second homes to escape the heat of the Phoenix area or the harsh winters of the mid-west and northeast.  According to the historical documents on The Mountain Club website, more than 450 lots were sold by the Lane Smith Company in...

I have a listing on a really great cabin in the woods. This seldom-used cabin has two bedrooms and two full baths as well as a loft. One bedroom and full bath are on the main floor (live on one level) while the second bedroom, full bath and the loft are on the second floor. The great room boasts floor to ceiling windows which open to Aspen Trees as well as Ponderosa Pines and Spruce Trees. Four walls in this room are made of floor-to-ceiling windows. All the woodwork in this cabin is light oak. The cabin features spectacular beamed ceilings throughout. There is an enormous wrap-around deck giving an even closer views of the beautiful Aspen Trees. The community park for Potato Patch is a very short walk and can be seen from this cabin. The grassy park is set among Aspen Trees and has a R...

 This deer seems to have claimed her own space!Here is another photo of the deer. This photo was taken by my friend, Rick Henwood, in Haisley Homestead. It looks like the deer are quite content here.In hiddenvalleyaz.nextdoor.com a controversy is raging over a special assessment. When I set up this neighborhood, I intended it to be a way for those in the neighborhoods to have a peaceful dialog and to assist in some communication such as garage sales, lost pets, meeting notices, recommendations, and other friendly topics. Several members have dropped out because of the negativism in the posts.I just found an article by Jill Schweitzer of Scottsdale that could be of interest, especially property owners in Hidden Valley Ranch:How to Spot a Bad HOAHere are some excerpts from the article in ...

Last night I was driving home after a long day of showing vacant land near Seligman, Arizona. I was on a lonely stretch of Highway 89 south of Ash Fork when I suddenly noticed the sound of a bird:"C    H    I    R    P   chirp  chirp  chirp". . .Then a little later"C    H    I    R    P   chirp  chirp  chirp". . .Still a little later"C    H    I    R    P   chirp  chirp  chirp""I started thinking, I want to see this bird when I get home. Maybe I should drive into the garage and close the door so I can see it when I get out.Then I started to think:  "How did it get in here?"  I did not see a bird anywhere near my car before I set out. I hope it is not hurt!A little while later I started noticing that it never changed the sound from"C    H    I    R    P   chirp  chirp  chirp"and that it ...

Agents not Taking you Seriously? Then Don't be Labeled a "Lookielou."I sometimes get asked by a stranger "I want to see the cabin in Potato Patch at 2885 Black Lode Trail" or I want to see the $50,000 220-acre lot in Seligman, AZ." These properties are QUITE remote. It may take me a full day to show some of my listings. I am not a tourguide.I may not take you seriously until I find that you are "doing your homework." Other agents will likely not take you seriously, either. I had an incident on Friday, 7/24/15 when I had such a call. This "Buyer" said she had been stood up by an Agent in Payson after driving there from Phoenix to see a specific property. I will show her the cabin at 2885 Black Lode Trail today, not because I think she is a good prospect, but because I said I would.Here a...

Sorry, Sellers, This is Why Your Home Did Not Sell in a YearSometime Sellers set rules that are self-defeating. Here is an example taken from one of the listings here in Prescott.Please ONLY show to qualified (meaning it's in their price range and they like the area and style of the home), ready-to-buy buyers (meaning this is a buying trip and they don't have a home they need/want to sell first).Wow! Does this ever narrow the number of showings. How many Buyers will be ready to buy a home only after they have met these criteria? Many Buyers go out several times before they actually have everything in place. Many also want to find the new home well before they have their first home sold. Many Buyers do not want to rent and move twice. There is another reason this home did not get sold" T...

Build Hidden Valley AZ nextdoor Neighborhood by Getting a Dog Park!Let's work to persuade the City of Prescott to make a dog park for our Hidden Valley Ranch neighborhood. As far as I know, the only public dog park in Prescott, Arizona is located near the intersection of Willow Creek Road at Commerce Dr. about 7.75 miles from Haisley and Highway 89. The route to get there runs through the center of Prescott. That dog park is around 2.25 acres. It would be great to have a dog park that is closer. It would also be great to have a place where I could take my dog, Beau, where he can be legally "off leash." The next step is to have a meeting to build a following of those who might support the project. Let's see if we can get the Clubhouse at Hidden Valley Ranch or even the one in Mountain Cl...

Does this Getaway Mountain Cabin need an Interior Re-design? A few years ago, I helped the present owners purchase this cabin in the Mountains of the Prescott National Forest. On the table was an old Hudson Home Publishing plan book from 1978 with a picture of the cabin.  When I discussed this cabin with an Agent who showed the cabin several years ago, she said most of her prospective Buyers though it did not to be very "cabiny." All the woodwork in this home is hardwood. The home is spectacular on the inside. Does it need wood panelling on the walls? Does it need to be staged?

A friend sent this story to me today. I just had to share it Just Stay! A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.    "Your son is here," she said to the old man.    She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.  Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.  The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed. All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of  love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that t...
