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.

“RCP Real Estate helped us find the right home and price in the San Tan Valley area to make both myself and my wife extremely happy. We are both very picky shoppers and RCP made the experience so easy and seamless that it helped us get over the bad economy results from our previous home. We will use them again the next time we need to buy or sell our home! You can’t go wrong with the best service around in Arizona real estate! Actually the only thing I have against them is, where were they in 2005 when I had 125k equity? I needed a realtor to tell me to drop my price down 25k and sale, rent a home with 100k in my bank until the perfect foreclosure came up. I wish I knew about you then.”

Scottsdale Real Estate Trends and Factors Effecting Value

Scottsdale Real Estate Trends and Factors Effecting Supply and Demand

Scottsdale real estate trends & factors– this is a big topic, but we would like to touch on a few factors less talked about. Some of the major factors we see effecting Arizona real estate are:

Canadian buyers– when the Canadian dollar is strong in relation to the US dollar, the demand for Arizona homes will increase, supply then goes down, and Scottsdale real estate prices rise.

Snowbirds– the concept is similar as the Canadians, however, as more Baby Boomers retire, they seek out Scottsdale Arizona real estate due to the inviting weather.

Interest Rates– When interest rates fall more people can afford a house. The more people that can afford houses, the more houses are sold and the values go up.

US Dollar Strength in the World Market– this can effect Scottsdale real estate. As inflation goes up, the more people are paying for gas and food and the less money they have to put toward a real estate purchase or a mortgage. This means less buyers and the prices of real estate trends down. On the other hand, you have the devaluing of the dollar. As an alternative to holding stocks, that may be artificially inflated, people turn to gold, silver, or other real commodities like real estate. This can create more buyers and drive the prices down. Looking at these factors can help illustrate how the low income families will be able to afford less and not be able to buy real estate, while at the same time, the more affluent, who aren’t as effected by gas and food prices tend to buy more real estate to protect themselves against a devaluing dollar. In summation, we tend to see more investors and less owner occupants as the dollar loses value. When the dollar is gaining in value the opposite happens.

Here at RCP we watch the trends. We can help you in your next real estate purchase.
