Dear Midnight:

Good question.

Although no one has a "crystal ball" on this, the general trend is they will remain the same to increase slighty to possible moderately. It is unlikely to reach the 2005 to 2006 highs during this time frame.

Overall, house prices in the Phoenix metro have risen slightly since the Summer indicating that the bottom of the market has been reached. Queen Creek, although has lagged, there are recent and coming changes in the Queen Creek/ San Tan Valley area.

1. New Freeways
2, New retail along those freeways
3. New hospital
4. Further freeway work expected
5. Abundance of HOA communities that keep the Queen Creek area looking sharp
6. Phoenix Gateway Airport expansion
7. Already bargain prices in Queen Creek for very nice and well laid our developments with golf courses and open spaces close by
8. Queen Creek is open to vacation hopes from baby boomer retirees from other states and Canada with good prices and freeway access. The retirees are not tied in to the commute that younger working families have to deal with
9. Wild Horse Pass Resort development also a draw to many retirees

Of course much of this is contingent on other economic factors in the nation as a whole. But all things considered, I would are on the way up!

If I can help you in any way, just send me an email .

Best regards and Happy Thanksgiving......Jeff

To have your home appear on Trulia it must be listed by a real estate professional on the multiple listing service(MLS).

If you can't sale a home renting is a GREAT option, lease rates have increased across the country. Realtors fees can vary however for tenant agents rep NEVER pay less than 50% of 1st months rent.

Bill Eckler answered:

The appraisal is reflection of what has been going on within ouy local market. As market values drop many people find themselves in the same situation you are currently experiencing....a home under contract that will no appraise for the contract price.

Our recommendation is to examine the area's recent sales for yourself. If you determine there is enough information available to contest this appraisal request a second appraisal to be done.

If the second appraisal does not produce the numbers you are looking for your options are:
1. ask the buyers to pay the difference
2. you pay the difference
3. split the difference with the buyers
4. let the deal fall apart and put your home back onto the market knowing that it probably will not appraise for a future transaction involving financing. This leaves you looking for a "cash" buyer that wouldn't mind the home not appraising.

We are sorry you have to deal with this but trust it is a sign of the times....with more to come.

Good luck,
The "Eckler Team"

In order to have a shortsale you must have to prove you have a hardship. If the market has declined and you still currently have your job and able to make the payments you may not qualify for a hardship. You may want to check with your tax person. ... more

Start at the right price. Not your dream price based on 2 years ago prices. Get the word out to local agents and the national real estate, etc. Create a personal website just for your property. Tell all your coworkers, family and friends.

Good luck.
