All That I Love About Homes is in This Home…. 2249 W Calle Iglesia Ave Mesa 85202

For more information on this home, or to view the home for yourself, CONTACT ME TODAY! Serena Jones 480-788-3232 | When I got into real estate, I did it to fix up homes. That is, until I saw the reaction to my first client realizing she just purchased her first home. I have been in love with the idea of ‘home’, ever since. Before, I knew what my home was… it was a place I hosted my own wedding, it was the place I brought my babies home too, it was a place that I hosted family gatherings or snuggling with loved ones… Home is most definitely where the heart is. When I first walked into the home at 2249 W Calle Iglesia Ave, I was overwhelmed by the obvious LOVE that this home had. This home was where there was a lot of heart, and around every corner, you can truly feel it. This amazing Dobson Ranch home isn’t like a lot of the homes on the market these days. There are no fancy floors or quartz counters. But to walk into the home’s backyard, you’ll see exactly what I mean when I say this home has an amazing heart. You MUST see it in person! It’s ready to embrace it’s new homeowner, so call me today. It goes on the market early January of 2016, but you can always get a sneak peak when you have an in with the Realtor Extraordinaire!...

A Story About a Unicorn and How the Stars Aligned (yes, it’s a real estate story)

Most of my days are filled with MLS searches, phone calls between agents and paperwork. This year I’ve helped more people buy or sell a home than ever and I’ve had a lot of fun doing it… but then there was this one… [fade in to memory scene] I was sitting on the couch one night, just relaxing and browsing Facebook… as I do.  I saw a friend’s post that caught my eye (or rather, alarms went off in my brain) He said he was getting a little antsy in his house. It was the longest he’s ever stayed in one place, and he was just wondering if anyone wanted to buy his house. Now, up till this point, I knew him, we’d been to the same gatherings, but he was more of an acquaintance. By no means did I ever imagine that I would get that particular listing in a normal situation, and I knew very well that a post like that just set off alarms in every REALTOR’s brain within a 50 mile radius, but there was just something about that house that made me want to be the one to find it’s new owner. Maybe it was the fact that it was built by a friend of ours. Maybe it was that it was built for my husband’s childhood best friend (later to be sold to our other friend). Maybe it was the history we’d had with that house and my desire to essentially keep it in the family. But this isn’t a normal house…. Obviously, I reached out to my friend and we discussed pricing...

What does “As-Is” mean when buying or selling a home in Phoenix AZ

Selling a home in Arizona with an As-Is Addendum Most people see their home as perfect, even if the toilet only flushes when you pull the head phone cord tied to the float… Those are just quirks, it’s what gives the home character right? It’s a nice thought, but most people when shopping for their home don’t want to inherit those little quirks. If you’re thinking of selling your home ‘As-Is’, you should know that the general public now views your home as being a distressed sale. (such as a short sale or foreclosure) Your quirks are now giant red flags of disrepair and bigger problems ahead. You are not going to be able to sell your home ‘at value’. Essentially, it’s putting a big “Clearance” sign on your home. Buyers will believe that there are more problems with the home than what can be seen and they may believe they’re looking at a potential money pit. Fewer buyers will ever visit the home, removing it from their list before they’ve giving it a chance. There are many reasons why you may feel you need to sell this way, such as financial or familial issues. However you should discuss this with your REALTOR to ensure that the matter is handled correctly and in your best interest. If you’re selling because of financial issues, your agent may be able to offer a better solution than the As-Is. The misconception to an As-Is is that the seller believes the buyer no longer has a right to ask for repairs. That is untrue. The As-Is addendum should be seen as nothing more...
