Appraisals In PebbleCreek

By |July 18th, 2019|

Appraisals are not perfect. They are not without bias. They may not even be an accurate predictor of market price. But most buyers and sellers will deal with them.

Appraisals are primarily triggered by a mortgage application; lenders will typically request an appraisal to help evaluate their risk. This is a significant reason that cash […]

Summer Sales in PebbleCreek

By |June 21st, 2019|

WOW!

May 2019 re-sales in PebbleCreek were literally off the charts. There were 44 closings in May – far and away more sales than we have ever seen and a definitve reversal of typical trends for this time of year.

At the same time, average prices are remaining essentially steady, though slightly increased over […]

Why Choose PebbleCreek?

By |May 23rd, 2019|

There are many 55 plus active adult communities in the Phoenix area. As a Realtor who specializes in this community, I am asked all of the time, “Why PebbleCreek?”

It is an important question. In fact, for almost everyone, the community selection comes before the home choice. While there is a wide range […]

PebbleCreek Residents and the Library!

By |May 3rd, 2019|

I cannot
remember a time when I did not have a library card.

PebbleCreek
has two excellent and well-used volunteer managed libraries – one in the Eagles
Nest Clubhouse and one in Tuscany Falls. 
They are stocked with donated books and puzzles and operate on the honor
system: take anything you like and bring it back when you are done.   […]

It’s about a two hour drive from the Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek to Jerome, AZ, making Jerome an ideal destination for a brief getaway. In addition to being close – it is also more than 5,000 feet above sea level so it can be an escape from the Phoenix summer heat.

Does PebbleCreek have Access to Good Medical Care?

By |April 12th, 2019|

Many of my clients want to know about medical care options in the Phoenix West Valley.

I am fortunate in that I have not yet been a huge consumer of medical care. I have a doctor. She wants me to come in twice a year. I do. I fuss about the ten […]

Who Needs a Home Inspection?

By |March 27th, 2019|

Home Inspectors are licensed professionals who evaluate the
overall condition of a home.  A typical
inspection takes about three hours and, depending on the home’s square footage,
costs somewhere in the range of $400 – $600.

It is routine for a home buyer of a resale property to order a home inspection – and it should be!  […]

Music and the Arts Around PebbleCreek

By |March 12th, 2019|

There is no shortage of creative and performing arts at PebbleCreek – from participating in creative arts to attending performances by residents and touring groups. Recently, Tonic Sol Fa, a well know professional accapella group, was performing here. And just this weekend, I was able to see residents (some of whom definitely have […]

Buying New vs Buying an Older Home in PebbleCreek

By |March 7th, 2019|

Unlike many 55 Plus Communities in Arizona, PebbleCreek is not completely built out. The builder is still here; new models are being innovated and contracting new construction is, for a couple of years anyway, an option.

Most folks know pretty quickly whether they want to build or if they would prefer to buy […]

Wildlife World

Wildlife World is pretty amazing. Whether it’s that you are visiting PebbleCreek and want to venture out “beyond our gates”, or you have guests in town who want something local to explore – or you have lived here for years and just want to try something new (that would be me!) , Wildlife […]
