Vicki Watson answered:
Hi Charlene, I see you are interested in a rental in Bullhead City. I would recommend you contact the rental agent for the property you are interested in. Have that agent contact you about the availability. If you don't contact the rental agent and make the arrangements, you will not know the status come December.

Good Luck!

Of course, your particular bill will depend on the amount of square footage you have, as well as your usage, and the age of your home and electrical equipment. However, we can tell the delivery charges for Unisource Energy (which is the electricity provider in our area) are:

For 0 - 400 kWhs: $0.0193 per kWh
For 401 - 1000 kWhs: $0.03435 per kWh
For 1000+ kWhs: $0.038499 per kWh

And then, of course there are surcharges for green energy as follows:
For 0 - 400 kWhs $0.00266 per kWh
For 400+ kWhs: $0.0015 per kWh

And last but not least, you have state, county, city taxes which are added on to the bill.

Elite Team Cory & Andy answered:
Lake Havasu is certainly different. There are limited areas that have natural gas since we do not need much "heat" in our homes so most supplemental heat is electric/AC units in our homes. Solar is growing rapidly and we have some city offices, some commercial locations and more and more homes utilizing solar panels (PV systems) in their homes and businesses. Lake Havasu requires an engineering study and certification to put panels on roofs so that is an extra step required here vs other areas of AZ and other states.
good way to go but still in the minority. If I can be of any assistance to find a home let me know. We represent the #1 Energy Star builder in Western Arizona and with these new super tight and efficient homes, the energy costs are very efficient/reasonable as well.

Chances are...YES, prices will change. In which direction? That's a little trickier, depending on a lot of variables. If we only had a crystal ball, the whole thing would be a lot easier. I'm bullish, though, I believe real estate is going up for the next several years. Best of luck... ... more

Internet speeds are pretty good, 75 megs for a reasonable price (I think $50/month, depending on your other services). It has been very reliable since we have gotten it, and the only time we had an issue, Suddenlink came out right away and took care of it quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend them.

We have the middle option available, it's $40/month for 35 megs, and to me, it flies! I play an MMO, and never have problems with it loading or taking too long.

I hope this helps,

If you are still interested in moving out here, I have a bit of knowledge. I just recently moved, May 2014, and found a job across the river at one of the casinos almost immediately. (I started June 3rd.) They always seem to be hiring. My boyfriend started a security job just recently, as well.

As for pet friendly, we stayed at the Pioneer for a few weeks. (I'd recommend River Palms, but they are closing for a little while for management change). Since it is summer, the hotel rates have gone up quite a bit, but they will probably be dropping soon, as summer season is almost over.

Then we bought a small trailer for $3,000 to save some money while looking for a bigger place to buy. The trailer is enough to get us by for some time.

I hope this helps,

The buyer would be CRAZY not to do it correctly, it is a huge risk for a buyer. The cost is minimum to do it right. Seller pays for a deed but buyer pays for the closing lawyer in most cases. ... more

Louise Doing answered:
Check the land use in your area and see if that space could be used for a rental property. You can add value to a buyer if they can generate income from that conversion. Also, be sure you get permits for all work done as we can not list your home and include area that is not permitted in our MLS without disclosing it. That might be a red flag for a potential buyer. ... more

Sharon Atkin answered:
This town is absolutely great for full time rentals, my husband and I came here in 2000 and bought two older duplexes and then built two new ones, and have since added two homes to our rental pool. We have very good results and have no trouble getting our property rented, we actually have our choice of tenants to pick from, checking qualifications and employment history and former tenancy recommendations is how we screen them.
Please contact me , there are several great properties on the market right now that are very good investments for you. Call Sharon at 928-706-8901

Hi Barb!

From your email, it seems as though your credit score is the issue? I would recommend speaking to a licensed mortgage lender that is experienced in the industry. You're going to have much better luck speaking to someone about your specific issues rather than a message board full of strangers. There may very well be options for you - the right lender can make all the difference!

Best of luck!
