It's a great area of Phoenix and I am very familiar with the location. Contact me if you need additional information at 602-793-9300.
I really like this community. I have sold a few homes in there and have shown it to many buyers as it's kept up very well and it a very good central location. The home is on the market 24 days and has been reduced one time already. The HOA fee is $183/month and includes front yard maintenance, but you are responsible for your back area. some of them have a larger yard and some just have a large patio area. There is a similar home that was all updated inside that sold for $275,000 in 12 days in 2009, It was a short sale and unfortunately brought the comps down in the community. The tax records don't show what they paid for it in '99, but it doesn't really matter what anyone paid for a house in the past, it only matters what the home is worth today.
You are on this site a lot and it seems you have not found a house yet that fits your needs. If are are planning to buy soon, it would be best to get one under contract by 4/30 and closed by 6/30 so you can take advantage of the home buyer credit.
If you are not working with an agent and would like some help in finding a home, please feel free to contact me. I know the 85254 area very well as I live there.
