Top Three Tips to Know When Buying AZ Real Estate

Three Tips for AZ Home Buyers

Here are a few tips that can benefit AZ home buyers:

1. Look to the future of AZ real estate: Real estate values are constantly changing. Look for an area that has a potential to increase in value. Good schools and designated future commercial development areas are a good place to start. Is it an area of future growth? Is it an area where people want to live? Is it a transitional area, declining area, or growth area?

2. Don’t forget to research any external factors for your AZ home purchase: Make sure you know what is in the immediate proximity to your prospective home. Are there railroad tracks or airports close by that will produce noise pollution? Are there any Brownfield or Superfund sites effecting your drinking water? Are there canals or industrial complexes in the area?

3. Place your offer according to the AZ real estate market: Is it a sellers’ market or buyers’ market in your neighborhood? If you are an Arizona buyer in a buyers’, market don’t hesitate to pay less than asking price. However, if you get into a multiple offer situation, place your offer at the highest amount you would want to pay. That way if you don’t get your offer accepted you wont feel regretful that you didn’t offer more.

How Appraisals Work

Let’s explore how appraisals work!

Everybody hates the appraiser. The seller thinks the house is worth more. The buyer thinks its worth less. Appraisers work with what they have, constrained by the restrictions placed upon them by lenders and national standards. For example, the lender will say the appraiser is only to look at comparable properties within one mile and out of those, only houses that have sold within the past six months. They are many more criterion or conditions the lender can place on the selection of the comparable. It is after all their money at risk. They need to feel comfortable in making the loan based on a reasonable valuation of the property.

When you’re buying a house and get to the point in your loan process where you need to get an appraiser, the lender usually hires the appraiser, but the appraiser is not beholden to the lender or anyone else. They sometimes work for the lender, however, they are independently licensed and ultimately hold fast to a national standard for appraisers. The appraiser by design is an unbiased third party and as such can come closest to getting a handle on the market price. They don’t always get that price right, which is why an appraisal is considered an opinion of value. Remember it is only appraiser’s opinion– not fact.

At RCP, we have a leadership team with a background in appraisals and we can hopefully help avoid any appraisal hang ups. We know how appraisers think, and can speak “appraiser” too.

Scottsdale Foreclosures

Buying Scottsdale Foreclosures

Scottsdale is a huge city and there are plenty of Scottsdale foreclosures waiting to be bought. Scottsdale foreclosures sell daily at the Maricopa county auction. If you are looking to buy Scottsdale foreclosures, then you have a few things to consider.

Unlike areas like Queen Creek or San Tan Valley, which are comprised mostly of relatively new homes, Scottsdale has been around for a while, being comprised of a much older median house age. Why does this matter when buying Scottsdale foreclosures? There are a few less things to worry about in a new house than an older one. With Scottsdale foreclosures, you can’t always see the interior. This can be more risky to buy than an unseen house that is newer. With the newer houses, you can assume that it is up to code and if it is in a subdivision, you can further assume that similar construction techniques and exterior facades are similar. With an older non-tract house, there are many unknowns. So when it comes to buying Scottsdale foreclosures, just be aware and know your risk. To lower your risk, buy newer tract homes in good neighborhoods. For more risk and maybe a little more reward, go for the fixer-uppers. Scottsdale foreclosures can be very profitable.
