The agent should have had you sign a buyer broker agreement that has an expiration date. If still in effect. If the home is now a FSBO, there would be no commission to be paid by seller. ... more

Visible issues like cracks or water stains are best to tackle prior to listing - agree with prior posters assessment that they will have one of two negative impacts - scare a buyer away altogether or lower pricing by a margin which may well exceed the repair.

As far as renting versus purchase - I think that is a question for you to tackle yourselves with the assistance of your agent and perhaps your financial planner.

Good luck and best,

Staging with a few items helps online viewers get a sense of the space involved. You've probably experienced it yourself: it's hard to look at an empty bedroom and figure out whether a king-sized bed would fit comfortably in there or not. Bottom line answer: yes, opt for minimal staging. ... more

You really want to know if homes are selling right now since you do not have to sell. You have a nice monthly stream of income from your property. Do you need the bulk cash out right now? Then you need to see what your competition looks like, days on market, how many months of inventory, etc. I personally notice in Maricopa a slow up between August and Late October, where inventory increases. Then I see the market slowly tighten up between November and March, and then ride out through August pretty tight (lower inventory). However, there are some homes if priced just right sell within one day in any market, because it has a waiting list for it like a basement home for example. If you want to see what your home could be worth try out It is free and pretty accurate on most homes. If your home offers something unique like being on a golf course the agent once you request it will go back in and personally review the numbers, and adjust them if the site made an error because of a premium lot. ... more

Depends on what type of control you would like to have.
If you lease with a manager you will pay for the service.
You will have to abide by landlord tenant act,
please read it before renting anything.
If you do it yourself you can sometimes have a great experiences getting to know your tenants and choosing who you see fit to rent.
Best of luck,

The answer is maybe yes.
When I have these situations my clients have had the best results using
Roswell (Ros) Moore
Sun West Mortgage
(480) 422-5095
They seem to have more loan programs to chose from without a lot of extra requirements (lender overlays).

Dad can use retirement income, or any other type of income. He may be able to use cash reserves to generate an income stream to meet cash flow requirements.

If the debt to income ratio works out, he can buy this as a 2nd home until his primary residence sells. He will probably need to put down 10-20%. Give Ros a call to explore your options.

I assume you are talking about 19303 Leland. That property is under contract. There should not be any hazard of being near it. However, it will allow you more privacy since there is not a home behind it.

If you want a more up to date property search then check out my websites at or where you find a search feature that is directly linked to the MLS. My sites also have a great deal of information about the city of Maricopa.
