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.

Phoenix Luxury Home of the Week #7

15 03 2010

Week 7 of the Phoenix area luxury home pick!  As always, I hope everyone is getting their week off to a positive start, and doing big things thus far in 2010.

Phoenix area Luxury Home pick #7

I chose this week’s luxury home for one reason mainly; NIGHT CLUB.  Who else in Arizona can say they have a club in their house?  And being situated on 2 acres, noise ordinance shouldn’t be a problem;]  If you are a bachelor and just so happen to have 5+ million dollars laying around, this place is for you!  Between the club, super contemporary design, 6 car garage, superb views of Camelback Mountain, pool and lighted tennis court in backyard, what more can one ask for?

STATS:

  • Paradise Valley, AZ
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 5 bathrooms
  • 10,065 sq ft
  • 6 car garage
  • listed at $5,000,000 ($496.77 per sq ft)

Th-th-th-that’s all for Phoenix area luxury home pick #7…Check back next week to see #8!
