Walking through new challenges

     Before heading home today I really felt like it would be good to share a few thoughts about our local situation here in Arizona as we face the challenges of this virus.    Short video will touch on directives, health, real estate and being aware.  While many facets of life will be different for at least the next few weeks as AZ schools are closed through the end of March, many other areas of life will and must go on - but with a much greater awareness of how we impact each other.

Also stealing some tips from from Myrtle Beach, real estate broker, Greg Harrelson what to focus on right now:

  1. Take care of yourself and your family.
  2. Give more attention to your COI.
  3. People will appreciate a personal touch more than ever.
  4. If you are slow, focus on getting stuff done that you have been procrastinating to get done.
  5. Treat others nicely.
  6. Practice smiling.
  7. Say thank you.
  8. Breathe deep.

Right Time to Sell is Now!

       With a lot of competing stories in the media, from politics to Corona Virus, interest rates to March Madness...  we are asked often if that will hurt the housing market?   The answer is pretty clear when you look at the facts -a resounding NO!  Especially in our local market surrounding the Queen Creek/San Tan area! 

      Let me give you an example from our own experience right here at The Drew Team with homes in the Queen Creek/San Tan area.  In a typical market homes priced properly sell in 60-90 days on average.  Let me show you what our last 4 homes sold looked like for time on the market:

Sold in 4 days (STV/$210K)  Sold in 3 days (Florene/$195K) 

Drew Team sold in 4 days    Drew Team sold in 4 days 

Sold in 1 day (STV/$239K)  Sold in 3 days (QC/$295K)

Drew Team sold day 1    Drew Team SOLD in 3 days

Obvioulsy if you are in the market to sell a property, move up to a larger property, downsize or for any other reason need to sell a house THIS IS A GREAT TIME to do it.   Want more info?  Message us or call (480) 256-2868 so we can help you

reach YOUR goals - just like the sellers above!

 

           The facts that remain consistent over the last 6 months have not changed,                namely we have a limited supply of homes and plenty of people who still need a home.   HOWEVER we don't have over-building, we have a reformed lender pool and low interest rates along with rents that have out-paced the cost of a mortgage.  It is a great time to be selling your property and we can get it done right!

March 2020 Real Estate Update Queen Creek Area

This short video will get YOU up to date on the real estate market in the QC/STV area:

Four main points to help YOU make the most

of this market & reach YOUR goals!

1. We have less homes for sale - want to SELL? Now is the IDEAL time, reach YOUR goals!

2. There are still homes to buy - want to BUY? We can help AND if you are financing your purchase power is very high as interest rates are historically LOW! PS you can get our professional services at no cost when we help you reach your buying goals.

3. New Home Builders are aware of short inventory and trying to get top dollar - DON'T GO ALONE, having a REALTOR cost you nothing BUT we can often save you money & help navigate the contract details with less stress!

4. Curious about investor offers (Z, Opendoor, Offerpad etc)? Typically they will cost you more money and they only represent themselves, we can show you how to make the most of your equity EVEN getting you offers from them BUT we can show you ALL the options they won't!

Handing Keys 19 Times in July!

Summer is slow in AZ, right?  WRONG!  The DREW Team is grateful to have served so many people this summer, and particularly in July, handing over keys 19 times!!! That made it one of the most fun (and challenging) months in our decade long history of serving.  However when you get to help BROTHERS each get into their first home within days of each other you can't help but smile seeing them building their futures!

Brothers first home        

One of the truths we are passionate about is that everyone has a unique situation so our only aim is to help YOU reach YOUR goals...  and those 2 worked hard to get here.   Let me share a little about some other families and show you some of the great homes below too.  

   Sold in 1 Day Drew Team SWMR   Best on Tour The DREW Team SOLD

We were able to actually sell 2 homes BEFORE they were even listed because we had buyers needing the homes!  Even got two homes sold in the first weekend for a family moving to a multi-gen home where the parents and children could have separate living spaces but be on the same property to support each other!  Seeing this much more often.

We had the great joy of helping a single dad of 3 girls get into a fabulous home that was near their school so he could be confident his work schedule would not impact them being able to focus on a great education -- we love the work ethic and passion he has to be the best parent possible!

Family was a strong theme this month as we has some people move across the street, across town or across the entire country to be near family!  The Drew Team finds great joy in seeing these families get closer both emotionally and geographically.

Also saw some long standing dreams get met, this fuels our desire to serve...  from seeing people getting to the "retirement" home and community they'd been looking forward to for years...  to the young couple who are moving into the dream home they had build...   so appreciative to help them get to the next chapter in their lives!
