Tony, Other/Just Looking in Albuquerque, NM

Is W. Bethamy Home Rd between N 59 Ave. and N 61 Ave. Glendale a bad aerea, high crime, run down, etc.etc?

Asked by Tony, Albuquerque, NM Wed Mar 11, 2009

I am not familiar with Phoenix aerea, and I am surprised at the low housing pricces I see on the internet.
There must be a reason. Can anyone throw some light in this please?

You are advised to check out anything that is import to you including areas and crime rates.

In order to help you with you due diligence here is a link to a buyer's advisory that has many useful websites for you to investigate:

In general the area you are referring to is an older area of the valley (homes built in the 1960's to mid 1970's)

I hope this helps.

Hey Tony...

The complete and accurate response to your question would be extremely long and complex. The short version, however, is that the greater Phoenix market has undergone a major "market correction" in the last couple of years, we've been experiencing a high rate of foreclosures and subsequently bank owned properties on the market, prices have been reduced to pre-2002 levels, and now the buying activity has increased substantially. How's that for a 1-sentence explanation of our current market conditions?

If you have other, more specific questions, or would perhaps like me to set up a customized MLS search for you (based on your desired property features), just let me know. Developing a working relationship with an experienced, full time Buyer's Broker is really the only way you're going to be able to maneuver this market.

Hope that helps!
