I suspect most of us have heard about the opportunity to obtain a "free" credit report from the three major reporting agencies each year allowing each of us to challenge any negative reporting, and then access our report for seven days after.
Phoenix and Mesa, Arizona Valley! Buyers and Sellers! Appraisal Issues! The real estate market in the Phoenix, Arizona and Mesa, Arizona valley is going through more twists and turns as foreclosed homes come onto the market. Unfortunately, many buyers are competing against cash buyers – and losing. The old saying, “cash is king” is true in this competitive real estate market.
Many buyers that ARE in the market to purchase a home have an unreasonable expectation of what homes cost. They hear all about the “deals” out there for $50,000 $60,000 and up, and are looking at those prices. And they want a four bedroom, pool, three car garage, etc. I’m even hearing such things as “that home is way overpriced!” Really? How does the buyer know that – unless he/she hears that from a friend, or watches the news, or reads the newspaper. How about “asking” the Realtor?
EVEN if the property is overpriced, it won’t appraise! Typically, those low ball prices indicate a beginning price, or the property has major issues. Even up to $100,000 is a questionable number when purchasing a nice home – even in Arizona.
