Yesterday my client closed on a lovely condo in the Courts at Gainey Ranch. I was representing the buyer.
Gainey Ranch is all about the lifestyle. The security, the tennis, golf and activities.
If you also want to buy in Gainey Ranch don’t forget the well priced 2 bedroom condo I have for sale there at $199,900.

CBs asks the provocative question in their article dated April 5th. It may be a valid question taken on a national level but locally it seems almost absurd because the rebound in sales price has been so strong and marked.
“In light of all the good news that’s out there — the stock market soaring, home prices are up, foreclosures are down — the American people just aren’t feeling that,” said Rebecca Naser of Hart Research Associates.
“Only 20 percent feel that we’re really out of the woods,” she added.
People aren’t quite yet adjusted to a positive real estate market.
In general people’s perceptions lag reality by quite some time. People were slow to believe the market correction was coming in 2006. And now on the flip side it’s harder for people to get in tune with the positive momentum in the market.
That will have changed for almost everyone by the end of this year. Buyers will remain a little cautious until their perception has caught up with reality. Normally I find that can mean buyers lose one home. Often on the first home buyers offer on they offer a lower amount thinking the ‘deals’ are still out there, quite often to be bid out by much stronger offers.
So if you are a buyer research the market a little local to where you are planning to buy. Get an understanding of average days on the market at your price range and also the ratio of sales price to listing price. These figures will give you a good sense of the market when combined with price data.
I just wanted to share the following note I received from a dear client. I work tremendously hard to make sure all my clients are happy and it’s so rewarding when they achieve their goals.
I am writing you today to let you know that I am thrilled with my new home purchase. You stuck it out and kept going even when I had given up! 19 months later you found me everything I had on my check list. I know I am a guy who will not settle and your tenacity helped me to the finish line. Thanks for finding my dream home and if you ever need to have a potential client call me please do so and I will tell them how professionally you handled finding me the home I have always wanted. Stay cool. Real estate is definitely your passion. I appreciate that.

Along with the note was a picture snapped from the home. It shows the McDowell mountains covered in snow. Hard not to be inspired by that view!
Have you noticed all the construction around town recently? Scottsdale and Paradise Valley don’t really have much land to expand into. Sure there are lots here and there but there’s not really enough space to build major subdivisions any longer. Except of course if that subdivision is an apartment building.
At the very start of 2012 I made some predictions regarding the real estate market. One of those was that the desire for urban living would keep increasing. See http://martawalsh.com/north-scottsdale/predictions-for-scottsdale-and-paradise-valley-real-estate-in-2012/
