My favorite Chandler community in the $200k range

Stonegate Crossing Chandler AZSomeone asked me what my favorite community in the $200,000 price range was. For me, it is Stonegate Crossing.

Why do I like Stonegate? Stonegate is one of those rare communities that is half in an HOA and half the community is not inside the HOA, which give options for both.

Stonegate not only has a great park in the heart of the community with a full court basketball court and volleyball court, but it also backs up to Espee Park, which is one of the best parks in all of Uptown Chandler.

There is something for everyone. To find out a lot more about Stonegate Crossing make sure you visit our page on Phoenix Real Estate Guy.

How many houses should you look at before you buy home?

Real Estate Question of the Day: How many houses do buyers look at on average before they purchase a house?

According to the National Association of Realtors, the average buyer looks at about 12 houses before they finally purchase a house. Over the last year, my average for a buyer is about 10 houses viewed before the buyer purchases a home.

Screen Shot 2015-03-04 at 11.10.59 AMYesterday I went to a funeral of a family friend. Sharon died way too young, with a 12-year old son left behind. What does that have to do with how many houses should you look at? Actually everything!

It makes you realize what is really important. Spending time with your family and friends is what is really important. Not looking at 20-30-40 houses.

If you are spending time looking at 20 houses, you are looking at a lot of things that do not match what you are looking for. You are likely viewing a lot of homes that don’t match the exact criteria that you want in a house.

Spend some time with your real estate agent and figure out what is important to you in a house – the expert Hilton Head Real Estate advice. Let your agent search for homes that match that criteria and really narrow down the search to the homes that match. Then you can spend more time looking at homes that you would want to live in and less wasting of your time that should be spent on more important things.

Let me know what real estate questions you have and I will answer them in under 2 minutes.
