Ron Thomas answered:
To some Buyer's it may be a negative value:
Many buyers lately prefer Hardwood or Laminate flooring; in fact, most.
You would probably do better offering a $2500 allowance and letting them choose.

Talk to your Listing Agent.

Good morning Gina,

Questions that come to mind are: Is it furnished or unfurnished? Is it seasonal or are you looking for long term rental (12mo +). Does pool and landscaping maintenance included?

For more details, please call me at 602-321-4533 or email me at carmelle@carmelleazhomes.com

Have a great day!

Try googling stagers in your area? Craigslist? Not sure if you're going to find what you want here on Trulia.

Paint is the biggest bang for you buck.

KEEP the colors neutral.

Go look at new home models to see what colors are popular today.

Hope this helps!

Henry Gobel answered:
HAFA deals may be denied for many reasons, we'd have to look at each case. Keep in mind that the financial situation of the seller is a big part of getting a HAFA deal to go through.

Regarding the value discrepencies, this is absolutely normal. Just like a regular buyer and a regular seller haggling over price with counter offers. Now, the buyer's lender, and the seller's lender are playing the roles. The value of a property is not a thing that is cast-in-stone, black-and-white, it is just an "opinion of value".

Banks do not take contingent offers or trades. I would recommend Nate Martinez at ReMax for more information about the market in Scottsdale or Northern Phoenix.

For me, it's being available and answering your phone. I know that sounds very elementary but you would be surprised by the number of loan officers/lenders that do not simply answer their phone or return calls in a timely manner. ... more

Laura Myers PLLC GRI, CLHMS answered:
As we've observed in the past several weeks, we are continuing to see the traditional seasonal slowing that takes place in the fall months and into the holidays, which this year may also be exaserbated by the expiration of the tax credit.

The current state of the overall Phoenix Metro Area market is:
Absorption: 19.4%
Appreciation: -.08 annually/-5.7% monthly
Months of Supply: 6.5
MLS listed homes (all property types) sold ytd: 66,536
Average days on market: 105
Percentage REO active listings: 19.4%
Percentage short sale active listings: 38.7%
Percentage equity sale active listings: 41.9
Current Conditions in the Phoenix Market:

· There are 31,595 single family detached listings currently active in MLS. That is an increase of 470 over last week.

· There are 39,025 total listings currently active in MLS, including condos, town homes, patio homes and lofts.

I hope that knowing where the market is will assist you in helping your buyers and sellers to navigate our market. Great price and low interest rates make this a fantastic time to buy!

You can feel free to use my website for specific neighborhood data as well as refer your clients to it as well.

All my best

Depending on the business--Why not join the Chamber of Commerce, become a member of the local civic groups, such as the Rotary, Lions, Elks, etc. possibly some local advertising, fliers, etc.

How can one reasonably believe that Arizona's economy and housing market will stabilize by 2012?
-----------------

They can't.

There is no end in sight to the Economic Downturn.

-----------

My brother and his son did some serious real estate investing in Scottsdale / Mesa / Chandler
during the real estate boom. They knew when to get out.

Others have not fared so well... just like so many in my state of Florida.

Know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em...

Bill Eckler answered:
Hi Midge,

This is an excellent and well timed question.

Under normal circumstances, one might assume the summer RE activity would be slow and nthing would be lost by withdrawing the listing from the MLS and wait for the busy season to return.

With the incentives and deadline of December 1, 2009 we might anticipate an influx in home sales from buyers trying to take advantge of the $8,000 first time buyer's incentive. Because of this, we are recommending our listing owners to consider leaving their homes on the market through the normally slow time because of the anticipated increase of RE activity.

Than you for your question.

Shar Rundio answered:
Rose,

The average days on market for active properties in the 85255 zip code is 230. For the sales in the last 30 days the last month the average days on market is 208. There is currently 14 months supply of inventory meaning that if nothing else came on the market it would take 14 months at the current rate of sales to deplete the market. That's actually down from 17.4% last month. The active listings are down and the pending listings are up which is a good trend to start seeing. Other things you might be interested in...the sales price to list price is 91.8% and the listing success ratio is 37%.

Please feel free to call or email if there is anything else I can do to be of assistance!

With Your Success in Mind,

Just log in, go to "My Trulia", select "My Profile" and scroll down to "my personal listings for sale" (I think it is) and there should be an "add home" button.

Happy Listing!

Stew Keene answered:
That's easy.... They want it All!

They want to like you and trust you mainly. Most of the time people work with people they like and then learn to trust, not the other way around. The Other thing I can tell you is you need to like them back. If you don't like each other or if you have what I call "user" clients who treat you more like a key convenience to open and close doors and aren't willing to discuss things, you and they aren't meant to work together.

After a while you'll get to know who is right to work with and when to let them go or refer them out.

Good luck to you Laura!
