The vacancy rate in Peoria is actually lower than this time last year. Due to market conditions, the vacancy rate should stay low for the foreseeable future.

Some are for long term rental and many are short term (October through April). Most of the short term are alreead booked or occupied. It is very hard to find a vacancy for the winter season.

It is very important that the listing agent and the seller be able to trust the pre-qual. Unfortunately, many of them are not worth the paper they are written on. Many banks want to know that if the lender of the buyer's choice won't lend the money, that the selling bank would be willing to lend to the buyers. ... more

Hi Annabob,

It really depends on your debt-to-income ratio because you'll have to qualify with your current mortgage and the new mortgage.

I suggest you speak with a local mortgage professional to discuss your options.

Best wishes,

What does your Buyer's Agent think?

I have yet to see someone collect on Per Diem from a Bank; we're supposed to count ourselves lucky that they are dealing with us!

My suggestion; have your Agent submit an Addendum to the Listing agent, asking for $50 per diem from the bank, from Oct 3rd on. I don't think that it will be a deal breaker, (but you should be prepared) I think they will just refuse.

The question is; is it worth it?

I would think that the bad P.R. that they create would be worse than $50 per day; obviously they don't care.

make darn sure that you have all your ducks lined up!

Good luck and may God bless

I have not heard anything bad about it but if you are concerned about it then it is a good idea to check with law enforcement or the county court house. They can generally give you more detailed information. ... more

I hope this helps-

There is only one condo listed for sale here. (7040 Olive ave 7-- $62,000).

There were 2 recent leases there- one in Jan ($800/mo for a 3 bedroom) and one in April ($695 for a 2 bedroom). They took between 1 and 3 months to lease (this will vary depending on the management company marketing the property)

As far as peaceful- this crime map may show you what crimes are reported in that area :,AZ,85302/ As far as i interpret it, it looks like the condos themselves are quiet, but the surrounding area has multiple recent reports of theft. This could happen anywhere.

If you would like to know more, feel free to contact me at 602 319 8085, or I am a very knowledgeable buyer-broker. My services as a buyer-broker are free and there are no obligations.

In my experience the rental market in Peoria has been stable. It is a desirable city in the Northwest Valley that typically commands higher rents than neighboring cities like Glendale, Surprise and Phoenix. However you should also expect to pay slightly more for homes in Peoria than in Glendale, Surprise or Phoenix.

As I write this there are 743 single family homes currently available for sale in Peoria, including 163 bank owned/foreclosures; 192 short sales/pre-foreclosures; and 16 HUD homes. There were 1,048 closed transactions within the past 90 days.

Peoria has top-rating schools, which is something that renters with children usually consider important. Also the Peoria Sports Complex receives the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners during the spring training season, which also helps drive rental activity.

You can check a list of single family homes for sale in Peoria at:[]=Peoria

Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information about the area or would like to see homes in the area.

Have a nice Sunday!

Consult your attorney. In general "Yes" if you get an exception on the rental property is excluded from your bankruptcy. (Get this from your attorney in writing), explain your situation and give this information to your future landlord.

Tony McMahon answered:
Commission is always negotiable. You must keep in mind however that the commision is split between the buyers side and the sellers side and each broker takes their share before the Realtors get payed. Realtors spend a lot of money marketing and showing properties as well as many other fees paid throughout the year to be a licensed Realtor, We do a lot of work with out being payed for it and are only payed when we complete a transaction. So yes commissions are negotiable but you also get what you pay for. ... more

Hi Nancy,

Home prices are about 1/2 of where they were in 2008 which is the bad news but the good news is that if you are planning to purchase another home, you will only have to pay about 1/2 as much as you would have if you sold you home in 2008. Please call me or email me if I can be of any further assistance.

You should talk to her broker since it is a broker not a realtor that you are signing agreement with. After all you should get back your $2500 if this is your realtor fault.

Dear Laura,

My suggestion is to interview a few local Realtors in the West Valley area, and determine which one will work best with you in terms of experience, knowledge, and communication style.
