We have some learnings to share about our local Craig's List in Phoenix for buyer's, seller's, and real estate agents. We've long used Craig's List as part of our online marketing plans. It's a small piece of a complete marketing plan, but nevertheless, a piece of the puzzle to gain exposure. There's an interesting trend with Craig's List that makes us ponder if and how long it will continue to be an effective online marketing tool. Over the last 12 months, we've been getting a greatly increased load of spam in response to Craig's List ads for listings we post to the Phoenix based forum. The amount of real leads has gone down and the amount of junk responders looking for you to respond back so they can capture your email has gone WAY up. The "spam" does three things -- doesn't bring in ...

As agent/owners of United Brokers Group, we already thought it was a great place to work. That said though, we came across this video that two of our top agents put together. They've both been in the business a long time. Experience counts and their opinion matters. After a rough year in the economy, REOs, short sales, and watching Phoenix homeowners go through short sales, it's so nice to see something positive. We feel blessed to know them and are proud to be a part of UBG with them! Referring agents and their clients can count on strong expertise and experience from all of our agents at United Brokers Group. If you or anyone you know needs assistance buying or selling a home in the Phoenix metro area, please contact us. sonia@carverht.com or 480.398.3125. www.carverht.com chandler re...

  Ahwatukee Shoe Repair Forced To Move To Make Way For Big Box Walgreens Flora tells their story! Another story of corporate America pushing the little guy around. It is so common that we have come to expect it. These situations seldom get our attention. I want to tell this story because these are real people, really nice people, whose lives have been disrupted and I want to help them in every way possible. Express Shoe Repair owners Flora and Mario Velastegui, moved their family business from Tempe to Ahwatukee on November 10th, 1990. They became an integral part of the Ahwatukee community. Mario's shoe and leather goods repairs became known far and wide for the quality and care he gave each and every item. As the business grew, Marios craftmanship became known far beyond the boundarie...

Wanted to introduce a new program that we rolled out within our Short Sale Department.  We have opened up our negotiation team to outside agents.  It is our philosophy that Realtors who are actively out showing properties and listing homes should not be negotiating short sales.  If you are going to successfully close short sales, you need a team of negotiators that focus on contacting the banks with consistency and negotiators who are knowledgeable.  Agents can now affilitate with Short Sales Done Easy in order to leverage their time and energy:   ***Short Sales Done Easy will provide our short sale powerpoint listing presentation to all agents who are affiliated with Short Sales Done Easy, LLC ***Short Sales Done Easy LLC will provide all documentation that is need to complete a short ...

Emotional, not just a financial matter anymore; what a Short Sale/distressed property entail. Phoenix Arizona. First we must define what a short sale is, a distressed property.  Once we can define a distressed property we can properly address a Short Sale.  A distressed property could be in poor condition (in need of repair), a property soon to be processed to a foreclosure status, and most of all a home in which the mortgage obligation exceeds its current market value; many times forcing the owner to sell their home out of necessity.  Clearly defined, we can state that a Short Sale must prove a hardship, being “underwater,” is NOT a substantial reason to list the home as a Short Sale.  How a person gets to a point of wanting to Short Sale their home can happen for varying reasons; div...

  One Stop Nutrition, Ahwatukee, Arizona, is by far a different type of nutrition store.  One Stop Nutrition, located off Chandler Blvd. and the I-10 is not yo0ru typical health store.  Fitness and attaining a well-balanced body is what most people strive for when going to a supplement store.  Not all supplement stores are created equal, and by personal experience, I can attest to that.  There are many variables that need to be considered when visiting a supplement store; ranging from quality and brands of supplements, knowledgeable and friendly staff, pricing, plenty of parking and operation of hours (are they consistently opened and available?), are their other services that they offer? One of the things that One Stop Nutrition offers is an array of delicious, natural, quality shakes/...

Ahwatukee is going to be divided into 3 main subdivisions.  Ahwatukee homes were originally constructed close to the 1-10 freeway and growth was extened west.  Mountain Park Ranch was the first main master planned community and average build is close to 1990 on these homes.  Mountain Park ranch is filled with walking trails, parks and 3 community pools.  The next area of growth in Ahwatukee Real Estate come in the mid section of Ahwatukee, "the Foothills."  Ahwatukee Foothills is located around a beautiful golf course and is a very popular area to reside, the average year build for Ahwatukee Foothills is closer of the early to mid 1990's.  The final stage of Ahwatukee is the area of Club West.  This is the newest area and probably has the highest rate of Ahwatukee foreclosure and short...

I have a seller that's been waiting 90 days to find out from Chase if they qualify for HAFA. Things were looking relatively good and then our seller lost his job. Not a good time for these people, especially since it's right before Christmas. If that wasn't enough.... Chase phoned within a week of our client losing his job saying our client had been declined for HAFA because he was unemployed. This was a first for us. We're very familiar with the guidelines and unemployment definitely isn't listed as a reason to be declined for HAFA on the information we've received. We phoned the HAFA hotline, and "they didn't know if that was within the guidelines." Fairly disgusting when the organization administering the plan doesn't know what their own guidelines are.... They recommended we call th...
