Fantastic.. We have the best weather and traffic is somewhat of a non-issue. Why do you ask?

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.

Dear J:

Yes, Marley Park is a beautiful planned community with parks, very nice pool, well kept homes as managed by the HOA with plenty of restaurants, shopping, spring training and golf very close by. The new 303 Freeway makes access much easier.

HOA fees vary depending on which type of home within Marley Park you ultimately purchase. Fees range from the $125- $225/month range. To give you an idea of the homes that are for sale along with their HOA fees:,12,1

Prices have been rising in Marley Park. It is very much in demand. A client that I sold a home to in Marley Park lives there and is thinking of buying another one because his family likes it so much.

Call me if you have any questions.

Hi Bcamp0207

Yes Paradise Valley has their own Police Department and every day you might see a patrol car driving the area. Compared to other cities in the Phoenix Metropolitan area Paradise Valley is one of the safest zip codes to live in. There is also gated and guard gated subdivisions to choose from if you want total security or you can purchase a home with a security gate around the property.

There is two Paradise Valley in the Phoenix area well truly one only but others think differently. True Paradise Valley 85253 zip code is where you will find Luxury Homes, Private Estates, Mansions, and Lavish Pads. Paradise Valley, Phoenix is the other so called Paradise Valley where you will find Paradise Valley mall, Paradise Valley school district, Paradise Valley Community College. This area is north of Shea/Cactus in zip codes 85032, 85022 that some in the valley consider Paradise Valley, Phoenix and that area will have substantially more crime rates as home values can vary from the low 100K and up. The Paradise Valley, Phoenix is NOT Paradise Valley but holds a lot of Paradise Valley names (Community college, mall, school, etc).

Hope this helps if you have any other questions do not hesitate to call or email.

Dear Shelly,

I am able to identify 7 rental homes that are serviced by one of the 'Traditional Academy' schools that are currently listed as Active (available) rentals in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). I'll be happy to email you information on those 7 homes and then show you any that you find will meet the needs of your family and budget. You may contact me directly via email or phone.

Hello Mike. That home you mentioned on 16027 N SAGUARO LN did sell on 5/21/09 for $99,900,'s a 2-bedroom / 2-bath/1436 sq-ft home in a subdivision (Mountain Vista Ranch) filled with mostly 3 or 4-bedroom / 2-3 bath homes. While not completely unusual, it's definitely not the norm and a 2-bedroom home typically isn't valued the same as a 3-bedroom home, all other things equal (size, features, upgrades, etc).

The two best recent comparable sales I found are:

16048 W Desert LN : 3bed/2bath/1436 sq-ft : sold on 12/24/12 for $116,000 (short-sale)

16061 W CARMEN DR : 3bed/2bath/1436 sq-ft : sold on 3/11/13 for $119,900 after only 15 days on the market (it was a regular sale)

Given that a 2-bedroom home isn't as desirable as a 3-bedroom home for MOST buyers (investors, first-time buyers, etc), it should be valued slightly less than the other 3-bedroom homes that are of similar size and similar features. I would put it somewhere in the range of $109,000 to $112,000.. This home could possibly be a tough sell given the fact it only has the 2-bedrooms; a likely buyer would be a retiree that doesn't need the extra 3rd bedroom. Most young families need that 3rd bedroom and even if they don't utilize it, the reality is that a 3-bedroom home will typically sell faster than a 2-bedroom home in most areas.

Hope that helps!

Michelle Hamilton answered:
Hi Roseann,

I just checked your link for the home and I don't see where it says that your property sold in 2012. The only thing I saw was that it shows property taxes for 2012. Under homes that sold near you is a similar address but it is Street not Place that sold in 2012. Could it be possible that you were looking at this address instead? 14828 N 51st St, Scottsdale AZ 0.06 mi Single-Family Home $283,000 8/28/12.

I also checked MLS and the tax records and it does not have any information that your property has sold since your purchased it in June 1989.

Hope this helps.

If you have any questions, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Thank you,
Michelle Hamilton

I would highly suggest that you seek legal counsel. Realtors should not answer a questions such as this. I have studied law for a couple of years and because of that I can tell you that there are several issues in what you have stated that a court could rule on in many different ways. You really need a licensed attorney that deals with this issue. ... more

Hi Frene1

The only Highlands at Arrowhead Ranch is in Glendale, I might be mistaken but that is the only subdivision I know of and can find, is that the area you are looking in? Your question says Chandler so not sure what area you at speaking about. Feel free to email, call, or text me at my contact info below, give me some more detail, and I will be happy to provide you with that info.
