The Census Bureau just released Gilbert as being the 5th fastest growing city in the U.S.! That’s great because we have room for more.  That’s right; we presently have 2667 active listings to sell.  The Gilbert Republic stated that Gilbert added 13,860 people between 2005 and 2006.  With numbers like that you wouldn’t think there would be any concern for the local housing market…Unfortunately, there are many other variables.  First and foremost, Gilbert has been averaging home sales of approximately 300 per month through the MLS.  At this rate we have just less than 9 months of inventory For more about the great City of Gilbert go to Gilbert or if you would like to find out more about homes listed in Gilbert or surrounding areas visit: The Jones Group Sincerely, The Jones Group

Ever woken up and there was a hole next to your house?by Kaushik Sirkar, Chandler AZ REALTORChandler Arizona Real EstateAs Real Estate Agents, we have to know and be aware of many things.  Some of these may include comps, neighborhoods and floorplans.  What about builders and construction of malls or roads?  Sure.  And what about fissures.  FISSURES?  Fi-what?  Well, Arizona, primarily central and southern Arizona have fissures that can cause problems.  Don't believe me?  Wait...before we look at cases of fissures, how about we look at some examples of how they basically cropped up out of nowhere in the recent past to cause trouble....http://www.azcentral.com/community/gilbert/articles/0811fissures-ON.htmlhttp://www.eastvalleytribune.com/story/47157What is a fissure, exactly??  Well I f...

Who is your builder again...?by Kaushik Sirkar, Chandler AZ REALTORChandler Arizona Real EstateAll builders are not created equal.  Different levels of attention to detail,d ifferent philosophies, etc.  At some level they are the same.  But at many levels they aren't!  Reading the East Valley Tribune today, I came across this article.  It suggests that buyers of new homesFocus on the builder, less so the price.Get an inspection done - so what if its new!If you do have problems, file a complaint!!I also came across this article.  A experienced developer had a new home (~ 500K) built by a well known national builder.  Boom.  200 defects/workmanship issues during the last 2 years?  Ouch.  Varying levels of responsiveness and customer service?  Poor materials and inadequately trained labor ...

Today I sat through my first class to earn my ABR designation.  That stands for Accredited Buyers Representative and it's the first thing you should look for to find a buyer's agent, in my opinion.  And I'm not even there yet!  I have talked before about everything your Phoenix area real estate agent should know, at the bare minimum.  But now, I'm throwing in an ABR designation because it differentiates them from all the rest.  I mean really, don't you want someone who is willing to make an effort to stand out from the rest of the pack?  And that effort makes them better equipped to represent your best interests.To be honest, I can't say I learned a whole lot today.  So far, it's just been a really great refresher course.  But I do welcome the opportunity to communicate to my clients th...

No, it's not what you think.  They are actually great people.  She organizes our neighborhood's monthly Couples Game Night.  He co-teaches Sunday School with my husband.  (which is hysterical to see by the way, two grown men vs. seven 5-year olds).  We love them as friends and neighbors and were genuinely sad to see them move.But he really wanted a big yard to work in and she needed a little more space inside.  So we signed a new build contract and put their house on the market.Along with five others of the exact same floorplan!  Like the rest of the country, the Arizona market is sooo overflowing with inventory.  They got great traffic for awhile and then about three weeks ago, it all stopped.  I don't know what's going on but I do know if you're not in the bottom five of city-wide com...

Gilbert's Cosmo Park is the best all-around dog park in the country for 2007, according to a monthly dog magazine's recently released rankings.Dog Fancy, which considers itself "the world's most widely read dog magazine," praised Cosmo Park for its doggie exercise equipment, man-made lake and beach area, and amenities catering toward dog owners.Cosmo Park, near Ray Road and Loop 202, opened last July to major fanfare, with about 1,500 canines and 6,000 owners flocking to the grand opening."Cosmo Park is a pretty special place, and it's nice that people outside of the Valley and outside of Arizona are recognizing that," town spokesman Greg Svelund said.----------------------------------------------------------------------------Once again, the Valley receives national recognition for bein...
