COVID and Riots and Real Estate, oh my!

We still haven’t seen any affect to the real estate market from COVID and even the riots that are happening across the country do not faze it a bit.  We are up a little in inventory since last month but, if you haven’t been living under a rock, you know that our market is moving swiftly and homes are selling within days of listing as long as the property is positioned correctly.  We are still seeing For Sale By Owners, outlandishly priced properties and properties listed by discount Brokers sitting, however.

Here are the stats that the National Association of Realtors just released.

It’s Still a Sellers Market in Phoenix

We gained a bit in inventory since last month, thank goodness!  The inventory gods held out a little longer this year than they usually do and we are thankful to have a little bit more selection on the market these days.  For buyers, this is great news.  The homes that are properly priced for their location and condition are flying off the market still, that’s true, but there is a little more for everyone to choose from now which eases nerves a little bit.  And sellers, have no fear.  The name of the game is price and positioning.  It’s still a sellers market.

The “Desire” model with Bonus Room in Eastmark!

For the first time since it was built, this stunning 2018 build Woodside Desire is available in the highly sought after community of Eastmark. Your experience begins with delightful curb appeal, paver walkway and perfectly placed front yard landscaping leading to the charming covered patio. The patio not only offers plenty of shade at the front of the home, it’s also a comfortable place to gather for relaxing afternoons with neighbors and friends which are plentiful in this tight knit, family oriented community.

Upon entry to soaring, coffered ceilings and upgraded wood like tile set in herringbone throughout, the highly desirable floor plan unfolds (see floor plan in Documents section). This true split floor plan offers a spacious indoor laundry room with utility sink and extra cabinets. The large bonus room AND den offer office space for him and her or can easily serve as additional bedrooms.

Bedroom 2 and 3 are spacious and both offer walk-in closets. The 1/2 bath with pedestal sink and full guest bath with square sinks are conveniently placed with upgraded Moen faucets and fixtures.

The oversized great room offers plenty of space for the entire family, Cat 6 wiring (which is also in the bonus room and guest bedroom), plenty of natural light and gorgeous views of the green and perfectly manicured back yard.

And now, the pièce de résistance, this kitchen is nothing short of jaw dropping with oversized “furniture” island with room for stools, Oceana quartz counters and plenty of gourmet staggered cabinets with 42″ uppers. All GE stainless steel appliances include gas cooktop, counter top convection microwave, convection wall oven and designer hood fan. There is plenty of lighting with recessed cans, stylish pendants above the island and a gorgeous chandelier in the dining area.

The master suite, perfectly located in the back of the home, is a peaceful, light and bright sanctuary. The master bathroom with separate oversized shower and tub offers a 10″ rain head with dedicated valve, Moen fixtures and polished chrome hardware.

The covered patio is adorned with pavers that extend beyond the patio offering additional space for the patio set and bbq grill. There are two side yards for extra storage.

The location of this home could not be better! There is a park just at the end of the street, Lunar Green Park. It’s a very short walk or bike ride away. There will not be any homes built behind it as that will eventually be part of the Eastmark Disc Golf Course but with only open turf and gardens directly behind the home. The actual course is in a different location (see rendering in Documents section).

It’s also located within 1/2 a mile of a Safeway grocery store, a coffee shop, a pizza shop and a gas station.
