Arizona Short Sales
What are Arizona short sales and should I consider them?
Arizona short sales are like other transactions in many ways. Let’s focus on the differences between a regular real estate listing and a short sale listing.
A “Short Sale” is when a homeowner and a bank cooperate and agree to sell a piece of real estate for less than what is owed on the lien or mortgage. Usually this takes place when there is a good reason why the current owner can’t continue to make the payments or pay the difference between the mortgage and the selling price. Why would a bank take, as a payoff, anything less than what they are owed? The same reason credit card companies do, some money is better than less money down the road. If a bank were to say no to a Arizona short sale and decide to play hardball, their only other recourse would be foreclosure. This would mean:
1. More time not getting paid.
2. A house that is empty and not being taken care of and possibly vandalized.
3. Lawyer and trustee fees
4. Holding cost to upkeep the property
5. Closing costs, and they still need to pay the Realtors, title agencies, cleanup crews, rehab costs, etc.
Arizona short sales can be a big no-brainier for banks, however, some banks get the concept better than others and try to streamline the process. While other banks bury their head in the sand and foreclose. Obviously, we don’t see the entire picture. I’m sure banks have their reasons for not doing Arizona short sales. Even with streamlining, short sales can take months to get approved as the bank must qualify the seller for the short sales, approve the asking price by getting an appraisal, and dot all the I’s and cross the T’s. Not all Arizona short sale agents are the same. Call us at RCP.
Find great Arizona investment property!
Fantastic CAP rates on Arizona investment property!
To find great deals in Arizona you are going to want to look for the properties you can buy cheap with some kind of upside, whether that upside is a higher selling price after you have rehabbed or remodeled, or if that upside is a great CAP rate or monthly rent. Good upsides can also be found in financing. For example, if you can pick up a piece of real estate at 4% interest and resell it at 9%, there is your upside. Maybe you can find a lease option at a great rate and then get a sublease at market rates.
So you ask yourself, “Okay, so I know how to recognize great real estate deals, but how do I find them?” You are going to have to watch the trends. Arizona investment property cycles like any other type of real estate. Let me explain.
If you are in a seller’s market for residential homes and the rental market is not growing as fast, buying a 4-plex is a logical move. If interest rates are on the rise, pick up some Arizona investment property homes for sale and wrap the mortgage with a new higher rate. Here at RCP we watch the trends and try to identify opportunities for our investors. Why? Because we invest too. Call us at RCP Real Estate LLC. If you want to sell your Arizona investment property house, but don’t want to use a realtor. Call us and we will write you an offer.
Facts About Mesa Real Estate
Buying Mesa Real Estate
Mesa Real Estate is some of the most desirable real estate in the country. Due in part to the great winter weather and proximity to metro Phoenix, Mesa real estate is a great choice for a large demographic. With that being said, Mesa real estate has it quirks. A few things you will want to look out for:
1. Are you buying in a historical district? These historic district homes can be nice, but you can be restricted in what you can and can’t do to the property.
2. Are you close to railroad tracks or light-rail systems? You will want to keep your eye out because otherwise, you may not notice that annoying train sound every hour until you move in.
3. Are you buying in a Superfund site? These are designated areas throughout the valley that are flagged due to their bio-hazardous nature or history. Usually someone located nearby has contaminated the ground and the ground water affecting the Superfund site area. This can be a big, “Oops!” if your Realtor is not paying attention.
4. Are you buying on a busy street? Noise, safety, and accessibility in and out of your driveway can be a few issues you may face on a busy road.
5. Are you buying in an age restricted community? Some communities set a limit on how old you must be before you can buy in certain neighborhoods. Many times, fifty-five and older is the restriction.
Just know that at RCP we look for these things. We have proprietary mapping software to check Mesa real estate for Superfund sites, historical districts, and train tracks. Call us to check the property you may be interested in and we will send you an external obsolescence report.
