85048 is a sought-after location for rental properties- good school system, excellent shopping and proximity to the freeway system are stated reason. The surrounding area-85044 is also renting well. I have been working in the Ahwatukee area since 2002.
Read my Ahwatukee blog on http://www.theeastvalleyteam.com for the latest stats. Email me if you have additional questions.
Have a great day!
Here is the definition of steering:
This term refers to the illegal practice of real estate agents only showing certain ethnic groups properties located in specific ethnic areas. An example would be showing an Asian family homes that are only located in Asian communities
Before you accuse experienced and qualified agents of steering, please understand the termonology. You asked a questioned and it was answered. If you would like further information about purchasing rental properties you can contact me direct.
Thank you very much Raj.
Many agents will answer that question, but they will only be giving you their personal opinion, or it is very probable that they might just tell you about the areas they work - which might or might not fit your needs. That is one of the reasons why "steering" (and answering that question) is illegal.
I will advice you to work with an agent directly, tell him exactly what you are looking for in terms of location, property size, local amenities, etc... And he should be able to tell you which areas fit your criteria. But a good agent will never label an area as good or bad, or try to steer you to the area they prefer to work.
You are welcome to visit my website where I have an area with some useful links to websites that will provide you with crime data, traffic info, school rankings, etc...

Steering in the sense of real estate pertains to steering of a protected class, race included. Copying and pasting definitions from 'ehow' and other sites and not connecting them with the subject matter is not a comprehensive way to get the entire truth across. After you copy and past portions, you need to make sure that you complete the quote in it's context.
If an investor asks an agent to recommend rental/investment properties based on certain criteria that has nothing to do with a fair housing violation, the agent would not then be 'steering' them when showing them property that falls into that criteria (price point/rental caps/bed +bath count.....). It is not steering to show people property listed in price range or neighborhood they have asked for.
A.J. answered the question correctly and gave a correct reply to your accusation.
â€œSteering is the act of pushing any potential real estate client toward or away from a specific piece of real estate property or neighborhood.â€
When you push someone toward a specific area you are â€œsteeringâ€ that person. Real estate agents are subject to steep fines, the loss of their licenses and potential civil suits if they're found guilty of steering.
Doesn't your answer constitute steering and is against the law? Doesn't that also show a lack of ethics on your part? Aren't those really the areas you like to work and not necessarily what is best for someone else? Just saying....
I deal with investment properties everyday, and right now I have an inventory of foreclosed homes that I can show you in Phoenix, all designed for cash flow, and many in your price range. Call me for more information and I can send you properties via email right away.

If you are looking for areas that you can find under $100K homes and attractive to renters that commute into Phoenix you can search on the map directory for free with no registration to access MLS data: http://www.arizonahomesland.com/mlssearchinarizona.html
It will be extremely difficult to find many detached homes in good shape in Scottsdale, Paradise Vallley, Cave Creek, Carefree and NE Phoenix and around Camelback Mountain. Most other areas have a decent supply of homes in the under $100K price range. Start your search.
Generally, the closer into the Phoenix commute area the more renters will be available, with some exceptions. For example there are many renters in Tempe with the 60,000 Arizona State University studen population.
If I can answere any other questions for you, feel free to ask.
I hope this helps you.

Location depends on what you want to accomplish, your goals, exit strategy and what type of properties you want to buy.
You could buy condos under $100K near ASU in Tempe; single family detached older "cottages" near the light rail; single family detached newer homes on the outer areas of town (Buckeye,Goodyear,Avondale,San Tan Valley,Maricopa,Coolidge, etc.).
It's best for you to find a good Realtor to assist you who can analyze your goals to give you the information and assistance you need to make good real estate decisions. An experienced, full-time, exclusive Buyer's Agent can provide many benefits to you.
