I have a fairly BIG yard. It is full of plants that would never survive in my native midwest and east coast enviornments; it is dependent on a full yard irrigation system; and it requires professional oversight. Every month or so, I scub down the front and back patios in an attempt to keep […]

I do a lot of Open Houses in the 55 Plus Active Adult Community of PebbleCreek, so I spend a lot of time talking with folks who are thinking about moving here. Once they hear that I am a full time resident, I am often asked about activities and life satisfaction, costs of living and […]

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 […]

You can’t miss the construction.
Just outside the PebbleCreek Tuscany Falls gate, a large multi-unit residence is being built. The project, years in the planning, is an independent and assisted living residence for seniors that is expected to open in spring of 2019. The property is being built by Robson (the same builder as PebbleCreek) and […]

The first quarter of 2018 was record setting in PebbleCreek resales. In the first quarter of 2017 there were 59 closed resales. In the same time period of 2016 there were 49. Combining January, February and March of this year, there were 83. ( I have to add the disclaimer here that agents may “count” […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
