there are approximately 164 active listings in Ahwatukee 2000+ sq ft that range from $160,000 to $4,000,000. I'm sure you have a price range that you're considering. Bank owned homes will be marked down somewhat compared to move in ready properties, but as with everything, you get what you pay for. If you buy a bank owned home, you may need to spend $10-$30K fixing it up or alternatively, add that to a move in ready property whereby you don't have to take that extra cash out of the bank and put in the property but can finance it when you purchase. I have many clients that start out assuming they'll get a great deal on a bank owned and after looking at enough junk and the cost of the additional improvements they realize it's not that great of a deal. For example, had a client looking for lender owned homes in the $150K range. Most properties in that price range don't come with a pool which they wanted. So they were going to put $30K down on the home and spend an additional $20K+ for a pool. That's a total of $50K. Instead, they ended up buying a $200K home with a pool, put down $40K and saved themselves $10K and they were done. Obviously everyone's situation is different.

Hi Sj

Fyi...per previous post 85040 is not Ahwatukee. Ahwatukee is comprised of 84044, 85045 and 85048. I live in 85044 and experienced with the area and the bank owned buying process. Feel free to give me a call at 480.270.5222 or email me at sreiter(AT)remax.net. Replace AT with @.

As has been pointed out, Ahwatukee is technically a phoenix address. Many listing agent don't substitute Ahwatukee for Phoenix when enter listings. The best way to search Ahwatukee is by zip code 85044, 85045,85040,85048.

To avoid sold properties on Trulia , Zillow ect, I suggest you try the website below.
Please call with any questions.

I just sold a fantastic bank-owned home in Ahwatukee to a client of mine that backs up to the desert with mountain views and a pool. The home was basically move in ready but needed paint and some small drywall work. I was able to negotiate w/the Bank to put a brand new pool filter on the home, and closing cost concessions......

Hi SJ, just fyi, the sale prices of short sales, bank-owned, and "regular" resales are so close now that there is no longer any particular advantage to you of looking only for bank-owned properties.

Check out my website for a great search tool below; I agree with a couple of my colleagues that it's hard to determine from your comment exactly where you would like to purchase so feel free to use my map search feature. Good luck!

Hi Sj,
Technically Ahwatukee is going to have a Phoenix address so it would be best to narrow your search by street boundaries. There are 7 home listed in "Ahwatukee" however there are about 300 available in the specific area. I would be happy to create a custom search in the area your wanting. Let me know.
