Paulson: Buying a house still best investment

#BuyingAHouseBestInvestment

From CNBC News.
Billionaire money manager John Paulson believes buying a home to live in is the best investment possible.
"I still think, from an individual perspective, the best deal investment you can make is to buy a primary residence that you're the owner-occupier of," Paulson said Wednesday at the Delivering Alpha conference presented by CNBC and Institutional Investor.

Mountain Living in Phoenix Scottsdale

#MountainLivingPhoenixScottsdale




The true southwest living in Phoenix Scottsdale offers spectacular unique mountain living opportunities and vistas not found anywhere else. You'll find them mostly in Cave Creek, Carefree, Scottsdale, Troon, Mesa, Fountain Hills, and Paradise Valley.

You can find love at first sight.


You know the saying when it comes to real estate - location, location, location. It's not unusual for buyer-clients to call me and to ask specifically to find them a great home with great panoramic views of mountains or a home on a hillside of one of our mountains where the mountain becomes part of your home.

You see, for Arizona residents, the outstanding views and proximity to the stars make life near the mountains the true meaning of desert living.

The variety of homes is great. From luxurious homes that show quality and diligence throughout from deep-set windows, stone-lined arches, cantera doors and columns, flooring of wood planks and views, views, views... to more modest homes with awesome views not found elsewhere - there are homes for almost every budget. Really.


So when you are ready for the best desert mountain view home lifestyle you can get, and watch the peacefulness of it all or and the storms roll in, you can reach me at my coordinates and we'll get your Arizona desert mountain living dream underway.

Think You Need A Large Down Payment? Think Again

Think You Need A Large Down Payment? Think Again

I don't think I need to mention that now is the time to purchase your home in Phoenix Scottsdale - while we are in the eye of the storm.


But many of you are overestimating the down payment they need in order to purchase a home. Need at least 15%?  Nope. 

Many home buyers often can qualify for a conforming, conventional mortgage with a down payment of as little as 5 percent — and sometimes even 3 percent. That's right.

Freddie Mac’s purchases of mortgages with down payments of less than 10 percent more than quadrupled. So far in 2014, more than one in five borrowers who took out conforming, conventional mortgages put down 10 percent or less.

So, what to know more? 602-300-7007 is all you need to get started and I'll connect you with one of my preferred lenders. There is no cost for your mortgage loan evaluation and to get you into your the house of your dreams.

Is Your Phoenix Scottsdale Smoke Alarm Up To Code?

Is Your Phoenix Scottsdale Smoke Alarm Up To Code?

This article is orignally written by by STEVEN BOEHLE on JULY 7, 2014 for the ArizonA Association of Realtors


The Phoenix Fire Code provides that a residential homeowner may utilize a battery operated smoke alarm in their home.  However, a recent amendment (ordinance G-5898-2014; effective April 18, 2014), provides that battery operated smoke alarms must be replaced with a UL listed smoke alarm with a sealed 10-year lithium battery.  Additionally, smoke alarms are not allowed to be used longer than 10 years from the date of manufacture.  Accordingly, if a smoke alarm is older than 10 years and/or needs to be replaced, the smoke alarm must be replaced with a UL listed smoke alarm with a sealed 10-year lithium battery.

Note:  Other cities may have different fire code requirements.  Accordingly, if you live outside of Phoenix should check their city’s fire code requirements.

A Nation that Captured a Dream - Real Estate

#A Nation that Captured a Dream - Real Estate

Two hundred and thirty-eight years ago, this July 4th, a new nation was conceived, different from all others — a nation that could and would capture the imagination of the world for centuries to come…a nation that captured a dream.

As a professional real estate agent in Phoenix Scottsdale Arizona, I dedicate my professional life to helping those around me help achieve one part of the dream, the right to own property. But today, helping my fellow Americans achieve that dream is not always easy.

Facing a less than robust economy, lending restrictions and growing concerns in regards to both regulatory and legislative reform, my work is challenging. But I am persistent, creative, and resourceful with my ongoing efforts to protect the right of property ownership, and to ensure access to achieve property ownership. But I believe with all my heart, that it is my American duty to do so.

As your professional real estate agent for Phoenix Scottsdale, I may not serve in uniform but I serve America and her people in a different and profound way.

That's the American way for me.

This July 4th, I am proud to be an American, and I feel a sense of particular pride in what I professionally do as a real estate agent, and feel a sense of duty in promoting and protecting that which our forefathers 238 years ago envisioned as one of the key elements of this new nation. In doing so, I want to help generations of future Americans realize an important part of that “American” dream. 

Have a great 4th!
