Jo and Don, Are you referring to the homes for sale? Our listings do not indicate if they are vacant or occupied when they are on the MLS (multiple listing service). Are you spending the winter in Sun City West and looking to buy something nice? The values have increased on an average of 10% from a year ago. Give us a call if you are looking for experienced Realtors that live and work in Sun City West and originally from MN. Arvid and Kay Peterson, 623-760-7367

Hi Jo-

Contrary to what you may have read or heard, Sun City West actually has less inventory today than we did a year ago. In fact, in February 2013, we had over 700 homes available and today there are about 300!

Now, if you are writing about a home being empty, it usually sells quicker when the previous owner's possessions have been removed. I like to call it the visualization process. Always try to imagine your stuff in the vacant home. If there are lots of distractions, then it prevents the buyer from visualizing where their stuff will go. Fortunately, there are still some homes that have furniture that can be purchased outside of escrow as a bill of sale between the seller and you.

If you have any additional questions or want to know more, contact me, Bob Davidson, a Realtor at Long Realty in Sun City West anytime at bobdavidsonaz@gmail.com or try my cell at 623-850-6637.
