It snowed in Chicago today. I mean, it is not even Halloween, and it snowed. By way of contrast, it is mostly sunny here in PebbleCreek with a forecasted high of 72.

The weather is one of the primary reasons that 200 people arrive in the greater Phoenix area on a daily […]

I live in a PebbleCreek home that was built in 2001. As is the case with most PebbleCreek homes, it has been cared for throughout the years, but eventually some systems just need to be replaced.

Most of my buyers who are new to PebbleCreek end up saying, at some point during the home buying process, some version of this: “I am NEVER moving again; I will let them take me out feet first.” Morbid I guess. But I hear it ALL the time.

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.
