Phoenix Luxury Home of the Week #8

Week 8 of the Phoenix area luxury home pick!  As always, I hope everyone is getting their week off to a positive start and continuing to do big things thus far in 2010.

Phoenix area Luxury Home pick #8

This week’s pick had the best of ALL worlds.  Location was a huge impact (85083 zip code), though the features alone made it an easy choice.  Between the infinity pool, spa, hilltop lot, city views, plethora of outdoor living space, and retractable glass walls, I couldn’t put my finger on the best feature.

Phoenix Neighborhood Update-Entrada

8 12 2009

Here is a market snapshot of the Entrada Neighborhood (includes Entrada, Entrada North and Northeast), a fine neighborhood with a range of housing options and great proximity to Arrowhead Mall (aka Arrowhead Towne Center), Shops at Norterra, and both the I-17 and Loop 101 Freeways in Northwest Phoenix.

As of December 8, 2009:

6 active listings (2 of which have offers submitted to the lender, awaiting the short sale process)

Prices ranging from $150,000 to $600,000

3 homes are under contract and on schedule to close

4 homes have closed within the last 1 month (since November 8, 2009)

Prices ranging from $160,000 to $310,000

In the process of doing this blog, I realized that I haven’t published a neighborhood highlight post of Entrada yet, so that is now on my schedule…keep a look out!
