Making a Distance Move to PebbleCreek

By |April 16th, 2018|

I get it.

Moving to Arizona after living a full adult life in other parts of the country (or elsewhere!) is going to be stressful.  I don’t want to try and talk you out of that.   Figuring out how real estate transactions work in Arizona is only part of it – there is also the […]

Do you Want a Fixer Upper?

By |April 4th, 2018|

I end up talking about Chip and Joanna Gaines from the HGTV program Fixer Upper ALL OF THE TIME.  Often, when folks come to open houses here at PebbleCreek, in their minds eye they are removing walls, changing flooring and installing some shiplap – just like Chip and Joanna do on TV.   HGTV – and […]

Living in a Home Owners Association

By |March 26th, 2018|

Oh Boy.

Living in a 55 Plus Community means coming to terms with living in an HOA.  Heck, for the most part, living in Arizona is going to mean coming to terms with living in an HOA.  In other parts of the country HOAs are not as prevalent, but since residential Arizona is being built largely by […]

I Am Not 55. Can I move to PebbleCreek?

By |March 21st, 2018|

Yes!  The Active Adult Lifestyle in PebbleCreek does not require that you be 55.

Remembering that I am not a lawyer and if this is a serious matter for you you might want to ask a lawyer to review the documents, according to our HOA Covenants, 20% of the homes here in PebbleCreek may be […]

When An Offer is Not Accepted…. Moving On!

By |March 8th, 2018|

Even strong offers get turned down.

Maybe the seller needed an earlier closing date than you could offer.  Perhaps the idea of someone else’s all-cash offer (and no appraisal requirement!) was attractive.  It is possible that someone agreed to buy all the furniture, relieving the seller of the task of moving or disposing of it.  Or it […]

Using a PebbleCreek Real Estate Group Agent

By |February 28th, 2018|

One of the primary reasons to hire a Realtor® to help with buying and selling a home is because the Realtor has relationships with all of the people necessary to facilitate the transaction.   And that is a lot of people.

For starters, there is the photographer and the sign post installer – and sometimes the […]

The PebbleCreek Lock and Leave Villas

By |February 17th, 2018|

The Villas are relatively new to the active adult lifestyle in PebbleCreek.   Marketed as “Lock and Leave” properties, the first ones were built since I moved here four years ago.  Villas have become very popular with several different groups – folks who want to own property here but still have a primary residence elsewhere, single people, couples […]

What is there to do at PebbleCreek?

By |January 24th, 2018|

PebbleCreek reminds me over and over again of a college campus environment.  It would be impossible to take part in every activity at a college – and you wouldn’t want to.  The active adult lifestyle that PebbleCreek offers is similar – I will probably never get to the Ballroom Dance Club and I can’t see […]

Ed Robson – Builder and Risk Taker

By |January 12th, 2018|

Someday, there will be a movie made about Ed Robson and his mentor, Del Webb.    Mr. Webb designed the Sun City Active Adult Communities and Mr. Robson, who originally worked for Webb, decided to move out on his own as a developer.  At the time that he did it, Ed Robson was making […]

PebbleCreek Resales in Review: 2017

By |January 2nd, 2018|

Is it COLD where you are?  Here in Goodyear, Arizona, as we start the new year, we are looking forward to a high of 74 degrees.  Not the 85 degress that I would call pretty much perfect – but also not the 10 degrees that so many of my family and friends are experiencing.  […]
