Working with a Real Estate Team

By |November 15th, 2018|

Do you remember team building activities?  “Mandatory fun” sorts of things that involved a lot of newsprint paper, small group break out sessions, and challenges like trust drops…   falling backward off of some small height into the arms of your supportive team.  Whatever.  Usually lunch was served… that was, by far, the highlight for […]

Selling the Home… Buying the House

By |October 28th, 2018|

My PebbleCreek sellers, particularly if they are moving out of the community, are usually selling more than a house.   For sellers, even though they may have moved and downsized throughout their adult lives, the walls of their PebbleCreek home contain memories: memories of friends gathered, holiday decorations in just the right place, the needlepoint cushions […]

Closing on a House in Arizona

By |September 18th, 2018|

By the time that they move to an Active Adult Community like PebbleCreek, most people have bought and sold a couple of homes.  I certainly had.  And I was still completely surprised by the closing process in this state!

On the east coast…  and even in the midwest…  I was used to very formal real […]

PebbleCreek Resales – What are the Current Statistics?

By |June 14th, 2018|

After 3 months of record numbers of resales in PebbleCreek, both April and May showed a slight decline.  Even with that, 2018 re-sales (130 through May) exceed the same period in 2017 (109 resales) and 2016 (110 resales).  Of course, some of that growth is likely due to the fact that Robson continues to […]

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 […]

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 […]

Should I Plan to Write a Check if I Make an Offer?

By |September 26th, 2017|

Believe it or not, you won’t need a checkbook or any immediate cash to make an offer on a PebbleCreek home.

That’s right.  It is typical for an offer to be written, presented and accepted before any money changes hands.

You can expect that your offer on a resale home will include a provision that you will deposit […]
