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.

I think if you head a couple of miles west of there, to around 51st Avenue and Baseline, you will find a newer neighborhood that is pretty nice.

From a lender's perspective the process is not much different between the two. However, from a legal view point there is a major difference.

A "Purchase Money" Mortgage in the state of AZ gives you certain protections in the case of a foreclosure, providing that the property meets certain requirements.

A refinance may or may not give you the same protection against judgments in the case of a foreclosure depending if you took "Cash Out" of your property and did not reinvest it to improve the property.

This property is still active and available in MLS for $165,000. Trulia and other syndicated sites receive a data feed from MLS, which is where us agents place listings and update their status. Occasionally, there will be an issue with a data feed and a property will still appear to be active when it's been sold, or even more commonly, the agent will be continuing to market it for backup offers after a primary offer has been accepted.

In this case however, this property is a lender owned Fannie Mae REO and is currently available at that price. It's been on the market 16 days and has just left it's "First Look" period which means it is now also open to investors or those looking to purchase a second home, whereas the first look period restricts it to offers that are owner occupied primary residences!

Hope this helps!

Around here a bedroom needs a closet (built in or added or with a wardrobe) and a window of adequate size a fireman with a oxygen tank on can get through.

Hurt in Phoenix,

You can answer your question by contacting a Realtor® to list your property for rent. A Realtor® will be able to advertise your rental in MLS along with over 20 other web sites, in addition to ensuring that you have a properly written lease agreement. Homes in MLS rent much faster, and for a higher amount, than homes advertised outside of MLS.

I can tell you that valley-wide, rents have fallen and continue to fall. A mistake I see quite often is a landlord listing his house for what he "thinks" it's worth, gets no bites, but leaves the house on the market for three months waiting to get his or her price. The goal of a rental is to get it rented right away, otherwise you risk crossing that threshold where you have lost more money waiting for a higher lease amount than you would have if you rented it months ago for less. Keep that in mind when you price your property for lease.

Best of luck!

I recommend being sure to get an agent with experience. She can help you with pricing your property properly and giving you hints to make the property show better and be more sale-able. Having someone you can trust to give you good advise is very important and then you need to work with your agent. The goal is to get your property sold for the highest price in the shortest period of time. You are paying your agent to help you reach that goal and you need to work together as a team to get it done! ... more

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.

Dear Mark:

Hi. This home is not listed for sale on Trulia or on the MLS. Here are all homes that are actually for sale in the Phoenix metro area: http://link.flexmls.com/ua948or6wf0,12 You can sort by the least expensive first if you wish. Note, Trulia lists homes that have sold and from public records. A Realtor can represent you and no cost to you as a buyer and show you homes that are actually for sale.

My NC Homes Team answered:
Changing over to a 15 year loan rather than a 30 year loan isn't going to affect your PMI. When you refinanced an appraisal was done and if it came in at $230,000 or above then you have a valid case to present to your lender to drop the PMI. You should contact them to discuss the matter.

Not certain if another refi makes a lot of sense you'd have to run the numbers as there are expenses involved. A quick look indcates that currently 15 year fixed rate refi's are right around 3% and you could always simply start adding $500 or whatever you're comfortable with in additional principal when you make a payment which would have the same effect.

Sonny Shrivastava answered:
Lea,

It doesn't mean anything. You should only be concerned with the payoff amount of your mortgage(s) and that the sale proceeds will pay that debt. If not, then you need to do what's called a short sale. A Realtor® can provide you with comparables in your neighborhood to help guide you on a realistic selling price. Based on that price recommendation, if the net proceeds will pay off your mortgage then you are fine. If not, then you are in short sale territory.

I am a top 1% producer at West USA Realty - the #1 brokerage in the valley - and have been recognized by The Phoenix Business Journal for my accomplishments. If you'd like to speak to a top valley agent, give me a call to discuss your needs. You can get top dollar in this market, but only if you have professional representation with professional photos, descriptions, and featured listing status. The quality of our listing photos and presentation are unmatched by most listings under $1 million.
