I love Marley Park because of its BEAUTY! I have walked into so many of these homes due to my background in new-construction, and Ashton Woods homes are beautiful inside and out! On top of that, the community is full of beautiful parks, green fields, and even schools!

It really depends on what you want. There are positives and negatives in both scenarios. If you buy a home with a pool, you wouldn't have to worry about the installation process. If you buy a home and install a pool, you get to make it exactly how you want. Those are a few things to think about. As far as cost though, it really depends on the situation. ... more

Possibly...if you haven't delivered the Short Sale Agreement letter to the buyer, then you have the option. I would need a little more info if that isn't the case.

I have to wonder if you really understand how they work because when you do most people won't fool with them if they can even find one. they are rare for a reason - they don't work and a renter usually will default because to own the home you still must get a bank loan to buy it. No loan = no own and out you go to start over and you lose your deposit money.

just rent and buy when you can buy.

Right now it is a 4 way Stop with little or no traffic. However, with the opening of the Loop 303 and the Northern Parkway both within approximately 2 miles, and the upcoming Prasada Commercial area nearby, it will eventually have some traffic. ... more

That depends on your idea of bad, compared to Reems and Bell it is very light but that is not to say that in the future it might get much more congested.

Your situation sounds like it might be a great time to take advantage of the current low prices the market offers.

A few steps to consider:

Determine the rental value of your current home.

Get Pre-Qualified for your new loan.

Select a Realtor to work with.

Dear D:

Yes, the short sale world we live in is bizarre.

However, most short sales never get approved by the bank. They still govern the market with so many being for sale. Some sellers list at the going market price (which the lender wants to see) and others list at a below market price to attract offers in order to stall a foreclosure action.

The sellers credit score is affected however. Getting a new loan with a good job is faster in terms of years than on a foreclosure. Yes, 2 to 3 years on a new loan after a short sale is a possibliltiy.

Buyers that have to move and buy a home within a specificed time frame often avoid short sales because of the time it takes to get the transaction approved by the lender and the higher fall through ratio. Those buyers that must move look at traditional sale homes or foreclosures. Investors or those that are not in a rush to move may consider the short sale homes.

To review the "Arizona Short Sale Advisory" from the Arizona Department of Real Estate that will answer many of your questions, see this link:

May I wish you the best.

Check out the website it will provide a number of people in your area that focus on short sales. Interview them and find the one that best meets your requirements. They all have had the education and have a support of others doing the same type of work.

Steve Schexneider answered:
As of today the listing was cancelled on 12-14-09 it was on the market as a lender owned priced at 119,900. I'm unsure why it was cancelled, it was only on the market for 10 days. The agent might have lost the property, or something fishing was going on. It is unclear at the moment, it might come back on the market and it might not. I have a few coming soon properties out in Surprise, a 3 bed 2 bath with den, single level, 2 car garage 1,991. Dont have a price yet but it will be priced to sell. I also have another 4 bed 2 bath 1,756 sq ft single level once again I don't have a price but we price them to move them fast. I also have a ton of properties coming soon in El Mirage as well as throughout the valley. If you have any other questions I can help you with, or if you are interested in any of my properties please call my office at (623) 414-3388

Sorry Hope isn't on the market anymore

The home is not listed as available in the MLS. It was last listed in 2006, but the listing expired without a sale.

Hi Dee,

I would also like to add that the property is owned by real people, and does not appear to be a short sale. At first glance on the comps it appears to be overpriced.
