September showed signs of Slowing!

download (1).jpg

Say that 10 times fast!  We sold significantly less units in the month of September than any other month in 2018 (besides January which is typically always on the low end).  With interest rates on the rise, we expect a slight shift is on the horizon but, since inventory levels are still low, we don't expect the impact to be huge.  Happy sellin' and buyin', Phoenix lovers!  There are still some great deals to be had and those properties that are priced right for their location and condition are still feeling the love in the form of multiple offers!  Looking to make a move?  Call me to discuss your situation, 480-250-0023.

Quaint 1920 Tudor Revival Style! Mesa home for sale!

Welcome to Glenwood Wilbur historic district and this 1920's Tudor revival! Cute curb appeal with green grass and quaint covered front entry. Enter through the freshly painted front door to coved ceilings, original wood flooring, decorative baseboard and custom window boxes in this spacious living space. Arched doorways adorn the entrance to the dining area with side exit to the exterior. The kitchen offers arched doorways, updated white cabinets, gas cook stove, can lighting, updated counters, tile flooring and a refrigerator.

The spacious back yard offers, privacy, extra parking, new wood fence and an oversized true adobe 1 car garage with storage area. The Wilbur Street Historic District is a good example of the change that occurred in Mesa during the time it was established. Due to population needs, smaller more manageable lots were platted vs the large, high maintenance garden lots that were common in the original communities. 

Back in the 1920's when this home was built, the Mesa Arizona Temple was the third largest LDS church and the largest outside of Utah. The Detroit Tigers, the early Cactus League, became the first Major League Baseball team to begin training in Arizona and the Alhambra Hotel was reconstructed from its 1893 build.

Downtown Mesa, less than a mile away, is bustling (with exciting growth on the horizon), but still offers that small town feel. Many new businesses have emerged like Cider Corps, Mezona Market and Worth Takeaway and old favorites like Queens Pizzeria, Nuthaporns Thai Cuisine, Mangos, The Mesa Arts Center, three museums and The Nile still remain after all these years. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind home in one of the most convenient and eclectic areas, minutes from the light rails and a variety of arts, music and delicious local fare.

Feeling the Burn! Phoenix AZ Real Estate Update for July 2018

May still reins champion as the month with the most homes sold in 2018 and we've been trickling down ever since.  Have no fear, Arizona, this is typical for this season.  As the temps heat up, showings die down a bit and therefore sales do too.  It's just too hot and families are wrapping up vacations and getting the kiddos settled and off to school.  Interest rates aren't the lowest we've seen but they aren't the highest either and, with prices still on the climb (steadily), you're better off buying now than waiting since we already know the prices and rates now...but don't know what they will be later. 

We've seen more buyers from CA, Canada, WA and CO than we have in recent years.  They are loving our weather, prices and the opportunity that comes with being a Phoenix area resident at this exciting time.  Call me, Katie, at 480-250-0023 to discuss how these market conditions are affecting you and your specific situation.
