If you are thinking about listing your home for sale, it looks like a reasonable list price would be somewhere slightly below $300,000, depending on condition and features. However, it looks like the purchase price in 2009 was $364,900, still likely making this a short sale scenario. If you'd like to discuss in further detail, I'd be happy to meet with you sometime. I live a few miles away, and my in-laws live in the adjacent subdivision, Coplen Farms. Please feel free to call me with any questions.

Actually, Trulia's info seems to be incomplete. The MLS shows this property with HOA of $205/quarter not per month.
And it is also showing as under contract in the MLS.
For a list of available properties in Laveen you can check
Photos are supposed to show the house on its current condition. If not, the REALTOR is supposed to include a disclaimer (for example, when the REALTOR lists a home to be build and include photos of a model home).
So unless stated otherwise on the listing, I believe it is safe to assume the photos are recent.
Having said that, it is always a good idea to visit the property. Even recent photos may not show all the details of the property.... more
The best information that you can find is by searching areas online or calling the Local Police Department and getting up to date information.
I have sold may homes in Riverwalk. It is a lovely community. Great Floorplans!
No matter where you live Security Alarms and Locked doors should be considered.
Please feel free to give me a call or contact me if I can be of further assistance.

HI Robert At this point it's possible but it would depend totally on your fiancee's income and debt ratio. Depending on why your FICO is 600 it's possible to raise it to the needed one for FHA or USDA or conventional in a short period of time. If you need to call me my cell is 520-991-6566.
Yes, title needs to receive all funds in order to close. This include the down payment / closing cost assistance from ADDI. Sounds like something is not right. What's going on?

Yes, ask a Realtor to show you homes listed by an owner of the home. Realtor's may not charge you for this service and will take you through the lease contract and represent you. Alternatively, you can check the classified ads.

I wouldn't count on getting any money back:
The $450 includes the cost of a Credit Check.
Everyone will have some pre-charges; maybe as little as $50.
They may be guilty of not communicating well with you; but you didn't ask the right questions.
Federal Law is pretty strict on them; but you have to be the watchdog, no one will do it for you.
Yes, they MUST give you a GFE.
You may want to get 1 or 2 more; it will probably be worth it.
We, on Trulia, can probably help with referrals or figures (There are a lot of Mortgage people on Trulia).
Good luck and may God bless... more
It doesn't have to be a scam. This kind of market should have more such opportunities. However, there are a few issues with this arrangement, one of which is fair pricing. Does an investor who paid a remarkably low price to purchase want to sell at today's prices, or would they rather hold out another couple years in hopes that we'll see another jump like we've seen these last twelve months? Furthermore, do you as a buyer really want to set in stone that you're willing to pay a drastically higher price than houses are currently worth, when instead you could just take your chances and wait? Most of the lease-to-own opportunities and seller carried financing deals I've seen have been too expensive, in my opinion. Sometimes, you'll find a decent seller carried financing deal, but otherwise my advice to clients is usually to play it safe and just keep it simple. If you can't easily buy right now without agreeing to exotic terms, then perhaps it's better to sit this round out -- after all, the market appears to be stabilizing again, which should help ease fears that we're in for 25% jumps in pricing over the next year.... more
Mark, we are realtors - not water quality experts. We assist with the sale of your home, not with testing your water or providing you with water analysis reports. If you are seeking real estate advice, posting your question here on Trulia is appropriate. If you are looking for water quality analysis and reports, I suggest you contact the City of Avondale or the water company serving your area of interest.
There is no substitute for doing your own research. Google is your friend.... more
you can go in county records and see if the home has been sent to auction,
or you should have legal notice posted on your door plus mailed to the home.
the landlord probably will not tell you.
Hope this helps... more
In some area's never. You have to know the neighborhood. A lot of people look down upon unsolicited door knocks. there are some areas though that it works very well. The best time shave been weekend afternoons when people are in their yards and out and aboout. For those with the gift to be able to do it, it wokrs well.... more
Sandrar, Are your parents in Phoeniz also? You want to buy them a property close to you, correct? If so, your onlly alternative is going to be to buy an investment property. You will need 25% to 30% down payment (unless you can find a HomePath home, which will allow an investor purchase for 10% down payment). You will need to qualify for both payments in most situations; however, some lenders may allow you to offset the rental with rent proceeds. You will need six to twelve months reserves for the mortgage payments.
If you were buying in a vacation spot, like Sedona, you could buy a second home and only put 5% to 10% down. I would contact a local mortgage professional to discuss your situation and goals in detail. Best of luck to you!... more
