You can certainly give it a shot. I have several lenders that my clients have used in the past that will do a great job for you. I can send you over a list if you would like. In the event you cannot get traditional financing, you can consider purchasing a home where the seller will carry the note for you.... more
Many of the areas hit hard by the housing crash are starting to have builders buy the empty lots and start building again. Of course each subdivision is unique and has to be investigated further.
Are you working with a good Realtor to represent you?... more
When you go to a new home center, they don't usually tell you that should and can use a real estate agent to represent you as a buyer's agent. The agent will need to go with you on the first visit to the model home center in order for them to represent you. You should have realtor representation all through the viewing, negotiation, contract, construction, and closing process. You should have an agent there with you that represents your best interests as you negotiate the terms of the contract, enter into a legal contract, put down earnest money, make selections for the design of your new home, complete inspections on the home, do the final walkthrough, and sign the final documents with the title company. There are countless questions that you may have, assurances that you will need, and choices to make. It costs you nothing to have a realtor represent you as the buyer, so I would encourage you to do so. Recently, I was able to help clients that were purchasing a new discover that the builder had 'forgotten' to insulate part of the attic! My sharp attention to detail saved them thousands of dollars in electric bills over the years. I would be happy to work with you and I have extensive recommendations from my clients on my trulia profile. Feel free to email, call, or text anytime!... more

You would need to be more specific but Arizona does have its fair share of our Scorpion friends. There are two ways I effectively keep them out of my house, good regular pest control and of course the less conventional "Cat" method. My cats kill and chase any scorpions that survive the chemicals and it would appear that they are immune from the pain of a sting!... more
Tolleson and nearby Laveen do have some industries and farms. As you drive through the area you can sometimes smell the cattle. However as you know the sense of smell is very particular to each person. Smell that bothers me may not bother you, and vice versa. So my best suggestion is to experience it for yourself before deciding to buy in the area.
This is true for any area you decide to buy a house. The last thing you want is to find out that you don't like an specific neighborhood after you have bought the home.
Over the past few years, there were quite a few new residential communities built there. It is an area with easy access to I-10 and downtown Phoenix. There are some houses with beautiful mountain views.

To give you some insight where to get your info...
a) as far as the water quality is concerned - each village usually has a once a year water quality report, so contact them and ask for a copy of it.....
b) once you are decided to buy a property during the inspection process you can have the water quality checked..... once you live there, most villages will come out from time to time to check the water quality, plus you can always install a good water filtration system, there are many different ones in the market
c) what is close to where you intend to buy, once you narrow down a village, subdivision, or neighborhood, put one of the addresses into google, and then add shopping center etc. and see what pops up, usually when you search for a hotel on google map, it also shows other information around the area.....
and if and when --- and I hope you will use the expert services of an experienced Buyers Agent,
their services are usually FREE to you, and paid by the Sellers, so why in the world would you
want to make decisions on a big expense in your life without the guidance of an Expert, protecting
your interests every step of the way, from getting you pre-approved and finding you the right hoem for YOU....
That Realtor then will also be able to find you what is close, and even drive you by if need be.
Good Luck to you, if you need a recommendation for a local Realtor, get back to us here and we
gladly make some good recommendations.

Look at it from their point of view:
They are being kicked out of their home, and they didn't do anything to deserve it!
They may not even have any money.
Why not offer them some Moving Money?
It will make you feel good too.... more
No Realtor will give you that answer. They will tell you to do your due diligence when looking for a home to buy or rent. Simple reason is defining the word "safe" in the eyes of one is different in another. A Realtor cannot by law direct you to a specific area to live, that is your decision. If you need some help with your home search please contact me for assistance or visit my website to start your personal search. Good Luck!!

The person or company taking this property into their name isn't necessarily doing it by will... they could be someone's second loan and be defaulting on the property, or....
If they are selling it for more than they are buying it, and it's only $7k, it sounds like they are trying to resell it and not lose money... not necessarily make money. They will have to pay quite a bit of closing costs, and it sounds like they are trying to cover it with that $7k.... more
I guess as long as they are DISCLOSING the fact, they are covered:
Call that aggressive marketing!
However I don't know how they can be making any money at $7000 with Closing Costs and everything....... more
Is the owner the same? The person/company that had the cash offer may be doing a 'flip' property and reselling it for a higher price? Without more information, that may be the case? Now, if it's the same seller, the deal may have fallen through due to inspections, etc.?
Hi, Time ... the Fair Housing act prohibits agents from steering buyers toward or away from any given area based on subjective criteria - "good" or "bad", "safe", "quiet" ... an agent can't legally answer any questions along those lines.
Honestly, your best bet is to drive the areas and decide what feels right. More often than not, you're going to know whether an area works for you just by driving around it. Within 20 minutes of Tolleson you've got Goodyear, Peoria, Litchfield Park, Avondale, Glendale and even parts of Surprise. It's just a question of what area works best and what kind of things you like to do.... more
While as a realtor, we cannot comment on neighborhoods, now is the best time to invest because of the prices. I personally lived in Tolleson for many years and know the area well. Due to the current market and conditions of the mortgage industry, we will most likely see a rise in rentals which means investors may see a good rate of return on investments.... more
