Phoenix Historic District- F.Q. Story Update 1

20 03 2010

Why hello there!  A long while ago, I posted a blog on the Francis Quarles Story Historic District, which included a short video clip of me driving up and down a couple of the streets in this awesome neighborhood.  I am back again (several months later) to give an updated market snapshot of the neighborhood’s real estate activity.

As of today, March 20, 2010:

15 active listings (1 of which has an offer submitted to the bank, awaiting the short sale process)

Priced from $99,900 to $529,000

7 homes are under contract on schedule to close in the near future

1 home has closed within the past 1 month (Since February 20, 2010)

Sold for$160,000.   At 1,235 sq ft, this breaks down to $129.55 per square foot.  Perks of Historic Districts!!  Even in a recessed market, they still demand top dollar when nicely updated/maintained.
If you have any questions about this post, or any of the other Historic Districts in the Phoenix area, contact me via txt/email/phone.

Phoenix Historic District Series…to be continued?

17 09 2009

So, as the one of you who reads this blog has noticed, I haven’t posted any new historic district posts in forever.  That is because a while back I realized that my video technique was useless, as one could just as easily go onto Google Maps, hit up the street view, and get a fairly clear shot of the street/houses/yards/etc.  I have no idea why it took me so long to realize this, as I am a frequent user of street view, but everyone has their moments, am I right?

On top of this, I have been SLAMMED with clients.  In light of these two factors, I have decided to terminate my historic district video efforts.  And until I can come up with a creative and groundbreaking  way to report these, or any districts for that matter, I will not post another neighborhood video.

Picture this…you are out of town, and unfamiliar with anything in the Phoenix/Glendale/Peoria, Arizona areas.  How would you like to see neighborhoods presented to you?

Please send me your ideas!

Just posted another magical blog about an interesting story I heard regarding a shady deal a fellow Realtor dealt with.  As you click the link below, remember these two things…

1.  ALWAYS DO A FINAL WALKTHROUGH, regardless of the situation (i.e. foreclosure, short sale, regular resale, etc.) when buying Phoenix/Scottsdale/Glendale real estate, or real estate anywhere for that matter.

2.  ALWAYS CONTACT COLIN STEVENS (me) when thinking of buying or selling Phoenix/Scottsdale/Glendale real estate or future real estate in the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Glendale Arizona area.  my contact info is at the bottom of the post=]

Talk to you soon!

Phoenix Real Estate Historic District Series

13 05 2009

Woo!  Finally getting back on here after taking a month off for the last push in school. FREE AT LAST!

Anyways, I just posted a blog on my real estate team’s website about the F.Q. Story Historic District here in Phoenix, Arizona, and had a lot of fun doing the research  (call me a nerd, but I like learning about history, whether it be about cities, people, artifacts, etc)!  Therefore, I have decided to do a series.  Each week or two, I will dedicate a blog to a different Historic District.  These posts will include up to date stats on listings, video clips, links, and a lotta bit of me.

Hope you enjoy!
