As Santa stuffs his sleigh with popular or big ticket items this year, he may be in for a “Bah, humbug” unless he takes certain insurance precautions. Gift-givers may be “Scrooged” when they realize that some gifts may cost homeowners extra on their insurance premiums, or may not be covered at all.
So here we are, December, again. As I get older it certainly seems to get here faster every year. I feel like I was just chatting with folks about what may happen in real estate in 2013. It turned out we had some interesting things happen here in our market. The year started off strong with lots of appreciation and a great demand from buyers. The buying frenzy continued through June until it sort of fell off a cliff in the summer. When we usually see the October pick up, the government shut down for three weeks and that changed the typical cycle for that time of year. We had a nice increase in buyer interest towards the end of the year and from what we can see now the spring season will be typical for our area.

Recently I saw a story about 10 tons of marijuana being seized at the Arizona border, and I couldn’t help but think, “Why?” Why are our brave police officers and border patrol agents wasting their time on seizing marijuana when there are millions of dollars of dangerous hard drugs and thousands of illegal immigrants slipping through the border?

Things have been changing in ZIP codes 85044, 85045 and 85048. We’ve gone from a Seller’s Market trending to a Buyer’s Market and now stabilizing into a more “normal” market. The number of property sales for the last two months have been consistent. Sales price per square foot remained stable for four months, dipping slightly in October. I emphasize “slightly” as you will see from the numbers.

The accompanying chart graphically displays the unvarnished truth about how David Cavazos worked Phoenix’s pension system to his total advantage.
The trend is changing in ZIP codes 85044, 85045 and 85048. What was a strong sellers’ market, is becoming a “normal” market for both buyers and sellers. Properties are not flying off the shelf in a matter of hours. There are fewer multiple offers on them, so they are typically not selling for more than full price. Why are we seeing a change? There are many factors that enter into the equation.
A story like that at the heart of "Runner Runner," about a young American gambler who gets sucked way above his head into the criminal doings of a big-time offshore operator, would have found its ideal life as a tough, punchy, black-and-white programmer back in the 1950s. Today, it would have been most viable as a grandiose character study done on an operatic scale by a filmmaker like Martin Scorsese or Michael Mann. What's actually up onscreen in this vaguely ambitious but tawdry melodrama falls into an in-between no man's land that endows it with no distinction whatsoever, a work lacking both style and insight into the netherworld it seeks to reveal. Despite an intriguing setup and Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake heading the cast, this Fox release holds a losing box-office hand.
The precedent was set with Desert Vista’s first athletic Hall of Fame class one year ago.

It seems like it was just a few short months ago we could not keep a listing on the market. The house went active on the MLS, received multiple offers, and then it was gone. It felt like it was all in a matter of days, maybe even hours. I had buyers say forget it I cannot keep up with this competition, and they stopped looking. Now, it feels like houses are sitting for weeks with no movement. Uh, oh … time to panic; time to make a drastic price reduction? Before you make big decisions, know this, this cycle is normal. Phew!

Consider the following very typical scenario: You are one of the growing numbers of individuals who takes an aspirin every day because of its cardio protective properties on the advice of a health care provider. Then, one day you sprain your ankle and you consider taking a couple of over-the-counter ibuprofen two or three times a day for a few days for its anti-inflammatory effects. Seems harmless enough, but is it? Is it advisable to be taking aspirin and ibuprofen simultaneously?
