This area is very desirable and generally at this price point you get good quality tenants. Of course you will need to decide if the return supports your investment goals.

I will be happy to discuss your plan and research the best properties. ... more

This is when the escrow officer and mortgage lender agree on the dollar amount and then the mortgage lender wires the money to the title company. Once the title company receives the wire they will double check all of the numbers and then file to record the documents. Hope this answers your questions. If any further help is needed please give me a call 602-549-7346 jane grimm ... more

In Aviano the actives are at 199/ft and the closed sales are at 143/ft. My kids go to Wildfire @ Aviano, its a great community.

The only thing in Villa De Sorano over the last 6 months is one active property @ 182/ft.

Let me know if you would like me to send you the Active properties.

Did you have a survey done, or are there at least corner markers? How do you know it is 3 feet less? I would work with the person that is on the other side of the fence, the previouse owners may have had a reason the fence what put where it was. Neighbors know a lot, if you just talk to them. If it is your property there shouldn't be any issue moving the fence. I my town you have to pay $50 and get a fence permit to build or move a fence. They come to the property and make sure you are on the property line to avoid issues like this in the future. You'll have to check with your city and see what they require. Good Luck. ... more

Joseph Domino answered:
While the age of the home is important with regard to style, design and features, what is far more important is location and condition (remember location, location, location). Any home can be remodeled or updated, but the location cannot be changed.

I have seen many older homes (1970's is not old) that were in perfect condition, classic designs, if you will. I have also seen newer homes that were not maintained and were falling apart.

The only real issue is do you like the styling of the older home or do you prefer the newer styling or recent homes?

Lorrie Feld, ABR,GRI,SRES, answered:
You definitely will hear some traffic off of 94th St. Homes on busy streets will sell for less than those within the community. Usually you don't hear that much noise in the home, it's more when you are outside. 94th is busy, but not the same as backing to Pima Rd which gets a lot more traffic. Some people don't mind the traffic and this gives them an opportunity to live in a community they normally would not be able to afford.

Hope that helps

Howard Rudin answered:
I think it depends on the neighborhood. If all of the homes in the area are built that way then it should not effect the value, but if you are one of a few then I think it could hurt your resale value because the buyers have so many more choices in the same area that are traditional in their look. Some buyers do not like side entry homes.

If you would like a complimentary no obligation valuation of your home please email me.

Both areas are very nice and they have their own personalities. If you lived here before, you probably know what amenities each area has. You can probably get more house in the north Scottsdale area for a similar price. You will also get a newer home than in the Biltmore area. That being said, the Biltmore area is more centrally located and has a special charm. Let me knowif you would like to startreceiving listings from both areas so you can compare them. ... more

Gail Dishman answered:
Probably not your Realtor. That happens all the time. The inventory has slowed down. Investors are buying things up too. If you are searching on Zillow or places like that they are slow to update the listing. It may be sold but still show as for sale when you see them. In our MLS we can set up clients with an automatic responder. The minute something comes on the market in your criteria it pops you off an email. Or use your Realtors website for the search. It is directly connected to their MLS and up to date by the moment. ... more

You will probably be looking at putting 20% down and a bit higher of an interest rate. The upside is since it's an investment property it would qualify for a 1031 tax exchange if you wanted to sell it down the road and invest in another investment property.

Great question. It is so important to consider construction when looking for a home- whether it is your primary residence or investment property. Block construction homes certainly have their advantages. They can retain cool/hot air better- which can lower heating/cooling costs. Also, block homes can be more resistant to termites-which are very prevelant here. Of course, a home inspection and termite inspection prior to purchase is very important.
The area you are thinking about is a wonderful area as well- I say this a bit biased as I live in the area!
If you are thinking of purchasing a rental/investment property- consider area rental rates, cost of maintaining the home, and school district ratings.
If I can be of any assistance to you in your search, please let me know.
