One Good Reason To Buy Now In Phoenix Scottsdale - Mortgage Rates Drop Again

One Good Reason To Buy Now In Phoenix Scottsdale - Mortgage Rates Drop Again

Amid our sales data for our Phoenix Scottsdale real estate market, mortgage rates dropped for the second straight week.

Rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with 20% down are about 4.375% (APR 4.6%) this week ending Oct. 31, down from last week but up about 3.4% from a year ago.

Rates on 15-year fixed-rate mortgages with 20% down are about 3.375% (APR 3.831%) and five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) loans also decreased to about 3.375% (APR 3.462%), same for jumbo rates at 3.250% (APR 3.464%). 

The expectation are for rates to remain perhaps stable for now but surely to increase in the future.

Buyers should really consider purchasing now as the total Phoenix Scottsdale real estate market has somewhat softened with outstanding deals in the luxury market ($800,000+) with a great inventory of jumbo loan ($417,000+) products to choose from.

10 Easy & Cheap Fixes To Improve Curb Appeal & Boost Home Value To Sell

10 Easy & Cheap Fixes To Improve Curb Appeal & Home Value To Sell



By investing $100 (or even less) in these outdoor fixes, your home will look better, the curb appeal will dramatically increase, cost less to maintain and your house will sell for more! That's right, this is an insider tip from your Realtor...

1. Freshen up the front door. Big return on your investment here. Consider repainting it a bold pop-out color with new fresh hardware with matching new house numbers.

2. Install solar lights. Outdoor lights add a whole new dimension at night.

3. Plant perennials. It says "welcome" and we care.

4. Fix the front yard. Rake the rocks for a even finish, add more where needed or patched. Same with a yard with a grass patch, fix the bare and weak spots and make it green. Trim the bushes.

5. Patch the driveway and sidewalks. Fill and cover the huge cracks and gaps.

6. Check the roof for missing tiles and mortar. The roof is part and parcel of the presentation of the property.

7. Upgrade your mailbox. If it is beaten, tilted or tired, time to get a new one. The mailbox is the very first thing people and BUYERS notice that creates the first impression to your house.

8. Keep the backyard and the pool clean. If you have a dog, no buyers likes to look at your dog's doo doo in the yard, and least to walk in it by accident. Same with the pool, make it inviting by keeping it nice, blue and crisp. A regular pool service is rather inexpensive if you can't do it yourself.

9. Keep you patio clean and free of debris. Get yourself a blower as it takes a few minutes to blow the desert dust from your patio - front and back.

10. Keep the driveway and the front of the house clear. Have extra vehicles? You really need to find a parking resolution. No cars or trucks parked anywhere else than the driveway. And try to keep them away from the front of the house. If you keep and extra vehicle, make sure it's not a renovation project.
