Some of the best schools and school district is located in Ahwatukee. That is a true factor why homes in this area are priced and sell in the higher price per sq ft category in the Valley of the Sun. You can gain a much better knowledge about a particular school by making an appointment to tour the school and speak to the administration/teachers before deciding on the right school for your children. Plus there is so much info on about schools in the valley at http://www.greatschools.org/.

I hope this helps and do not hesitate to call or email any other questions.

That would depend on what you mean by cost-effective. I remodeled an older home a few years ago. What would you be doing? It is amazing how much savings you can generate with some insulation, triple paned windows, insulated doors, and some solar panels. The best advice I can give you is to work with your loan officer and a licensed neighborhood realtor, then find a licensed and reputable contractor. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. Then get serious about remodeling. a house becomes a home when you make it yours. I am a Mortgage Banker in metro Phoenix, AZ. I lend in both Arizona and California where I will be pleased to help you.

Hi John,

There are 79 quads on the Phoenix Market currently. With what you are looking for in an agent and the work you are asking them to do for you, I would suggest that you consider offering a retainer fee and a consulting fee since this is a lot of work you are asking for up front with lower potential of income for agents. My investors tend to do a lot of research before calling me, they know the numbers, demographics and everything looks good on paper before I schedule a preview of the home where I will take tons of photos and videos as well as create a report. I specialize in SFR homes as an investment so I don't meet your criteria, but trying to help you find an agent that will. ... more

Why Choose Michelle?

COMPETENCE BREEDS CONFIDENCE!

In Arizona, I am a Broker, not simply a Salesperson. I assure you, few agents provide the level of service and safety that I deliver.

Here, in California, I am a Salesperson with years of Broker experience in Arizona.

I do not suggest that other agents cannot deliver competent service; I am stating that few others can deliver in every phase of the transaction the level of understanding, devotion to selfless fiduciary care and effective and protective completion of service (whether this is a successful close of escrow or a safe cancellation of the contract) as I do.

Few agents understand the market as I do.

Few agents complete the upfront research as deliberately and protectively and comprehensively as I do.

Few agents uproot important information and documents from the listing agent as I can.

Few agents judge the offer position as I do.

Few agents understand the contract and its language as I do.

Few agents understand real estate law as I do.

Few agents understand real estate financing as I do.

Few agents understand the financial implications of a transaction as I do.

Few agents draft an accurate, effective and thoroughly protective purchase contract as I do.

Few agents understand the connectivity and power of the associated addenda as I do.

Few agents can rip though the Seller's counteroffers and addenda to protect their client from dangerous legal language as I do.

Few agents understand the language of the Inspection Report as I do.

Few agents suggest the level of associated services as I do: Lenders, inspectors, appraisers, termite/pest inspectors and contractors.

Few agents understand the mechanics of the Buyer's rights to cancellation as I do and few agents can protect their client from potential breach of contract as I do.

Few agents have the comparable oversight experience that I do.

And few agents oversee the entirety of the transaction to safely deliver every client to a successful completion, whether that be a successful close or safe termination, as I do.

Welcome Home!

Competence Breeds Confidence.

Depending on how you are going to purchase (cash, finance, etc) , what are you looking to do with the properties (fix n flip, rent and finance/carry back, rent and hold), depending on the volume...I would find two - three realtors who have the contacts with the bank REO departments and start your process.

I can highly recommend the following realtors in the metro Phoenix area to you for this.

Jennie Miller West USA Realty Phone: 480-382-9681
Troy Landrum - Canterbury Realty
Linda Booker ---Realty Executives
Richard Shelton--- ReMax
David Van Oman ---ReMax

They are all highly professional and can serve your needs.

Bill Eckler answered:
Hhwu....

The basics here are accurate....any really good offerings that come onto the market as "foreclosures" will go to contract very, very quickly. Thus, those buyers that are prepared to make a quick decision clearly have an advantage over others.

You agent is telling you to make a quick offer and then use an inspection as a "fail safe" to get out of the agreement in the event you don't like the home. If this results in a multiple offer situation, you may be asked to present your "highest and best" offer...on which the lender will make their buyer decision.

There is always great risk in buying anything "sight unseen!" From where I sit, seeing the property before making an offer, makes a whole lot of sense.

Good luck,

Bill

Asking for less seller concessions, putting down more earnest money, and in the case of bank owned properties- using the bank that owns the property as your lender.

Great question that would be best answered by an attorney that understands Arizona real estate and mortgage. The attorney may want to see the documents to get a complete understanding of your situation.

I would be glad to provide you with a couple of names if it would help you out.

the counter is typically later so the last date on the last counter is the beginning of the inspection period, unless of course the contract provides otherwise
