Interesting comments, Kevan. One fundamental problem with your assessment of the market, however. Can you tell me where interest rates will be in 6 months? Prices may very well trend downward through the remainder of the year and beyond, but that is not the only variable at play here. This is not the stock market. If interest rates continue to climb, your purchasing power has greatly diminished. While you may ultimately be proven right, to make the blanket statement that it will be a better time to buy in 6 months is simply foolhardy. All we can be sure of is that it is indeed a good time to buy right now if you are in the market for a home. On to the original question, the landfill you refer to is indeed the closed Skunk Creek Landfill. With the landfill no longer operating, there is a transfer station that was opened this year in the Dynamite Mountain area. Do some research on the North Gateway Transfer Station. It's basically open to the public (non-hazardous materials), and is entirely operated indoors. The waste is transfered via truck to a landfill outside of Phoenix city limits. There is a lot of construction going in along the I-17 corridor, if you are looking in that area, the are several factors of which to be aware (which should be noted in the Public Report that builders are madated to provide). In addition to the transfer station, there is a water treatment facility, an operating mine (you might hear an occasional BOOM), the Deer Valley Airport in relatively close proximity, and expansive soil conditions in some communities (I wouldn't contract with a builder in the area that doesn't utilize post-tension slab reinforcement. You would think that a buyer should run away from the area like their hair was on fire with a list like this, but after much investigation, none of my clients have been scared away by any of it.
