What kind of real estate are you looking for? Arizona foreclosures?

Arizona Foreclosures, Short Sale, Bank Owned, and Creative Financing

Arizona foreclosures are some of the best in the country. RCP professional real estate agents are proficient in all types of Arizona foreclosures. Gone were the days of Arizona foreclosures listings that were run down and in need of serious repairs. Now those days appear to be back. The banks realized that by doing a little touch up work and minor (sometimes major) repairs that they would actually get a return on that investment. This is not always the case because as the supply and demand changes, so do the tactics. When the housing inventory is limited repairs don’t return as much and property owners and banks will opt to just sell the property as is. Then when the inventory increases owners must make some updates to stay competitive and get their house sold. Call us at RCP for a current market update to see where we are at in terms of supply and demand. This is often referred to as a buyer or seller’s market.

Arizona foreclosures can be lucrative and rewarding for the right type of buyer. To read more about Arizona foreclosure click here.

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.
