Phoenix housing market saw a large increase in monthly gain over April statistics.

Well, anyone in Real Estate can tell you May was a very busy month in real estate!  everyone has their theory as to why, but all in all, bottom line- "it is a good time to buy a home in Arizona".  With prices still low, interest rates at an amazing low rates and some great programs out there to help folks buy a home.  Not to mention it is cheaper to buy a home than it is to rent one?  Why not! 

So this is to call all of the folks that have been sitting on the fence, thinking you will wait until things hit "bottom".  Folks Bottom was in our market about September/October of last year...you don't want to wait any longer, as prices are just starting to crawling upwards!

If you know someone who might be looking to buy or better yet sell a home- as our inventory is historiclly low, call or email me and let me know and I will do my best to help them!  Or better yet, take a look at my website www.AzBuysHomes.com use the Map Search and you will be searching the Actual MLS for home in Mesa, Gilbert, Queen Creek or any where in the Metro Phoenix Area.  I want to earn your business, so hopefully giving you access to the MLS will be a good start!!

3.8% tax on Real Estate Some official answers...

Well, perhaps you I have been hit up for answers to questions about the "Real Estate Tax" or sometimes referred to by the "Health Care Bill"
Hopefully you can see my intent. This is not a political blog, so no matter if you are on one side or the other- this is just some clean facts.
 I found a few good sorces to help clear up some myths and how this tax should work.  First one is the National Association of Realtors put out a brochure;

Brochure for 3.8% tax
