I would need to be out of my home to sell it because of difficulty with pets, and do not want to pay for two houses for very long (while waiting to sell).

Dawn is correct. Subdivision close to each other may have very different home prices. Good luck on your home search.

If the home is shown as Pending and not UCB, the agent should not have shown your house. Report to the real estate board of the agent.

Too bad that the website viewer isn't provided that information on the site but rather has to find out the phone # of the HOA Management Company and call them (if they can get through). Often the Management Company gives the message to the Manager and that may be a long wait (especially if you're not a resident). II know that when a seller lists their property with the realtor they have their HOA statements available but somehow the Realtor doesn't get that information published. HOA Fees vary so much (in our Area the smallest is $22.50 per month and the larger ones are hundreds of dollars a month). Maybe one of these days there will be a disclosures law that requires listing agents to disclose the HOA Fees. ... more

Depends on the type of heater used, we have similar (larger though) pool at 6469 s alameda rd, gold canyon with spa and to heat it (tankless water heater and we use a cover when not in use) it cost $230.00 month to keep at 88 degrees and spa at 103... so a 1,000 is not average by any means, depends on how your heater works and how good it is. You do get what you pay for and we put in 4 tankless heaters in this property - in AZ our Electric bill year round averages 255.00 bills on the counter to prove it.. ... more

Mountainbrook Village prices are always higher per sqft than other areas, it is a 55+ golf resort community very very much in demand, in fact our prices here are higher and we are getting multiple offers on some of the homes here. If you want to buy in Mountainbrook Village I would not wait any longer!

In fact, prices throughout Gold Canyon are on the way up!

As stated previously, find a Realtor that you can communicate with, request they be your buyers agent and ask that person the question.

What to offer on a house has so many variables that it impossible to provide you an informed answer in a format like this. ... more

A great question. The fact that we have no definitive answer is the reason our housing market is in doubt.
The lifeblood of our industry is sales. Predicting the elements which make it happen is what makes us professionals. The banks have made us doubt ourselves with all the fundamentals that once were easy to reply to. Thirty percent is a substantial amount of downpayment in any market condition. Yet as I have stated the variable response may be as confusing to you as to us. It could be challenged by an appraisal which would negate your scenario or your ability to qualify based on any number of requirements that change daily. Since you state the amount to be mortgaged to be quite negligible in the first place, they may simply refuse it on that premise.
As Anna suggested I will also kick the can further down the road by suggesting to shoppe around.
What a shame . A simple question that only keeps us realtors guessing. Good luck Brian

Bill Parker, CPA* answered:
Hello All:

I'm sorry but I have to address Darrell's answer as it is the "poster-child" of why non-experts should not try to address technical questions.

My caveat: I advertise myself as a "Licensed, not practicing" CPA, as even though I have a Masters in Tax and worked for what was then one of Big 8 firms, I have not been doing taxes for some time.

Darrell, Lynn is referring to IRS income as what is being asked about is covered under Section 108 of the Internal Revenue Code, which calls for taxation on "Cancellation of Debt" income. This was temporarily suspended back in 2008, I believe, due to the preponderance of people undergoing foreclosures, short sales, deed in lieu of transactions, etc., all of which result in banks having to forgive portions of what was owed. This caused too many taxpayers to be forced to show huge"phantom" taxable INCOME amounts, while obviously in a financial position where they could not meet the tax obligation due.

Second, you start to discuss the anti-deficiency laws in Arizona as if there is a one size fits all answer. Which is misleading, not to mention the size allowed is 2 1/2 acres, not 5. There are so many nuances to these laws and related court cases, which are baffling to almost every tax accountant and attorney in Arizona. I am on the Tax List Serve for the Az Society of CPAs and no topic gets more questions and confusion than how to handle this very topic.

So, my point is not to make Darrell look bad, but more to warn people not to ask such a complicated tax question on a public forum and expect to receive an intelligent answer. Once again, I know some of the most brilliant tax minds in Arizona (I am NOT amongst them!!) and some not so brilliant (CPAs are only, and would be glad to put you in touch with one of them who can answer your questions. Let me know.

Hi Dale,

I tried to do this myself and it seemed to work, although the suggestions below seem good, especially Kris's about including the unit number.

If you still aren't able to submit the listing on Trulia, please contact customer support using the link below to get a more definitive answer.

Randy Hooker answered:
There are 2 bedroom homes listed in Gold Canyon all the way from $95,000 to $635,000, and sizes from 1,200 sqft to 2,400 sqft. To take such widely different properties and slam them together and arrive at an 'average' price per square foot would be a travesty. The results would be so skewed that an accurate assessment of any given home in Gold Canyon would be practically impossible.

Maybe you could re-phrase your question based on what it is that you're trying to find out?

All the best!

Or you could rent your home from an Investor that would like to add a rental to his portfolio. There are many Investment based companies like that reps Investors. Short selling it to one of them could be a good option.
