Union County Sewer moratorium lifted

Keith Lutz posted this 1,598 Views

Good news for Union County!  The division of Water Quality lifted the ban on the Twelve Mile Creek Waste Water Treatment Plant that has been going on since February 7 2007.  Now it looks like the residential sewer requests will NOT be accepted for NEW developments.  Which IMHO, is a good thing at this point. We need to slow down the building and sell out some of the areas we have!  Not to mention all the inventory of resales.  The permits will be handed out f...

  Is there nothing good about lower home prices? While it may not feel good if you are a homeowner and your home may be worth less today than it was one year ago, there are some positive aspects to this ‘adjusting’ market. Homes may become more affordable for home buyers, particularly in the lower price segments.  The mortgage for yesterday’s $600,000 starter home becomes much more reasonable if prices move down — especially if interest rates ...

We have some pretty intense meetings at the Austin City Council.  But they always involved heated words and not guns.  I hope this is not a sign of things to come.  He was apparently facing a foreclosure that would have been solved by the zoning case. http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/10/05/owner.suicide.ap/index.html

Does anyone remember that term and what it actually means?   I was in a local store the other day, and an employee greeted me with a smile and a sincere "Hi, Can I help you?" and actually tried to assist me and make my experience a pleasant one.  I remembered their attitude through out the rest of my day.  I thought to myself... “that was good customer service, they cared enough about my needs to offer assistance” and I know I will return to tha...

Scottsdale Homes posted this 1 7,530 Views

One of my favorite things about being a local Phoenix area Realtor is having the opportunity to explore some of the cities newest and most exciting master planned communities. Today I had some down time, so I jumped in my environmentally unfriendly, gas-guzzling GMC Yukon, and headed up to Fireside at Norterra by Del Webb. Although I have visited numerous times, Del Webb is a Phoenix home builder that constantly amazes me with their vision to create a community that promotes resident int...

What can your mortgage do for you?

Marin posted this 900 Views

Have you ever wondered what your mortgage can do for you?  Well, of course, real estate can always be seen as an investment, and there is that tax deduction, but beyond that, a mortgage seems like a big drain on the bank account.  If you are smart about it, however, you just might be able to turn the tables and make your monthly payments get something for you in addition to that dream house that you are making monthly payments on. Recently American Express unveiled a plan that al...
