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 Home Loans Work

How Financing Works

Want to buy a house? One of the first steps is to get your financing in order. If you can buy with cash, then you are ready to start looking at houses. If you can’t pay cash, then maybe you are looking for an owner financing deal or a rent to own or lease with the option to buy. If there are limited owner financing options, you can go with the traditional mortgage type loan. In Arizona, it is actually known as a “deed of trust.”

How financing with banks works: Once you have found a house and have an accepted offer you can get the ball rolling on financing. Your loan officer will have already pre-approved you by running your credit and asking you a series of financial and job related questions. Assuming you answered their questions accurately, there should be minimal problems in getting you the loan. The lender will judge your ability to repay the loan, look at your credit, and see your history of pay back loans, then they will proceed to the collateral. The house or land is the bank’s collateral and recourse if you don’t make good on your loan payments. They will order an appraisal from a Certified or licensed appraiser and if the property is worth what you offered, you’re in business! There are thousands of differing issues that arise when trying to procure a loan and we can’t go over them all here. The best thing to do is talk to a real estate professional and get the ball rolling. It is a good idea to start the process a few months before you need to buy. Keep in mind once you have found the house you want and get an offer accepted, it typically takes 30 days to close the deal.

Scottsdale Investment Property

Buying Scottsdale Investment Property

Scottsdale investment property can be very rewarding. There are a few different types of Scottsdale investment properties depending on the type of investor you are. If you are out of the state or out of the country, you will probably want a property management company to handle the day to day items. If you are looking to buy and flip, there is no need for property management, however, you want to buy and sell for the right price and in record time. Scottsdale investment property is broken down into:

Single family: A regular house used as a rental, or bought to fix up or remodel and flip to a new buyer.

Multi-Family: More than one unit or building, i.e duplex, tri-plex (3-plex), four-plex, or bigger.

Commercial or Industrial: Retail, restaurants, office spaces, medical offices, etc.

There are many opportunities in Scottsdale investment property. Investors from Canada and right here in the states are buying in historic districts and other areas at a fraction of what their resale value is. After a considerable remodel, they sell these properties for top dollar. Other investors are buying Scottsdale investment properties for their rental value. The rental market in Scottsdale is strong and single family homes can make a good return. Some of the best deals are being found in investing in multi-family real estate. These properties can provide an amazing CAP rate for your portfolio. Call RCP to explore your options.
