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.

If you are looking to buy a home and can’t seem to qualify for a loan, but have some cash to put down, RCP real estate is experienced in all sorts of creative financing creative real estate transactions. What are your options?

1. Lease with the option to purchase- also known as lease option. With this type of deal you can move into your home and not worry about a landlord kicking you out because you have a contract. You don’t own the house yet, but you have the option to buy it within a certain time-frame.

2. Lease purchase- also known as rent to own. In this option, you are renting and at the same time putting a portion of your rent toward the future purchase of the house. This allows you to not throw all your money away with rent, but put some toward the house as you go.

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.
