When is the best time to sell a house in Laveen Arizona

When is the best time to sell a house in Laveen Arizona?


The question does come up a fair amount, it is “when is the best time to sell a house in Laveen Arizona?  Well the truth is, this is a pretty loaded question.  The article will address the question by looking at the following items, which will of course be explained:

  1. Looking at historical sales
  2. Values of properties
  3. Bringing it together and the “market”


My name is David Baker, and I am a Laveen realtor.  Been working and specializing in the South Phoenix/Laveen real estate market since I began selling homes full time back in 2004.  I started my career with a company called Keller Williams.  At this company I specialized working with buyers, and was part of a team concept.  This was during my first 2 years full time in the business.  I later made a move to Re/Max New Heights Realty which is based in South Phoenix area as well.  By this time I had about 4 years of full time experience working with both buyers and sellers.  It was during my time at Re/Max that I also began to help home owners who had fallen behind in payments to short sale their homes.  I am currently working with the HomeSmart Realty brokerage.  Does the brokerage I work for make any difference in the level of service I or any other agent can provide, NO.  At least that is my opinion.

I am a bilingual real estate agent speaking of course English and Spanish both fluently.  This really has been a great benefit to my clients, as they are able to get a larger marketing reach because of my ability to speak and market in 2 languages.  I also became really interested in on line marketing several years ago, and this also has been a great asset to help my clients sell their homes.  So in a nut shell, I am a bilingual real estate agent specializing in South Phoenix & Laveen who has over a decade experience selling homes and is very well versed at online marketing.

I mention a little about myself, because as you read this short article, it is good to know the source.  I will also be using information from the MLS (multiple listing service) as well as statistical data I collect myself to keep on top of the real estate market trends.  Some information given will also infer a certain amount of what I would call “my professional opinion”.

So, how can looking at historical sales inform us about when is the best time to sell a home in Laveen?

Unlike some other parts of the county, Laveen as a whole in my opinion does not have a very drastic seasonal fluctuation when it comes to sales.  As an example, if you lived in Minnesota, do you suppose the number of sales goes down drastically in the winter months?  Maybe you live in a town predominantly running off the attendance at the large local university?  Unlike other areas, my opinion is that the Laveen real estate sales are NOT affected too much by the seasons.  Now, that being said, there are MORE sales that do occur at some months of the year vs. others.

So here it is, the big secret of “the best time to sell a home in Laveen” is really from about April to September.  These are the periods of the year that see the MOST in terms of number of sales vs. the other months of the year.  Looking over the last several years one can see that the time from April through as late as September see’s the most number of sales.  The actual number of sales will fluctuate a bit from year to year, but it is still evident that those are the higher sale months in terms of units sold.  You can usually see on the low end about 42 sales a month to about 70 in the slower month.  In the higher volume months you can see over 90 sales in Laveen on a monthly basis.

Does that answer your questions as to when is the best time to sell your home?  Maybe to a certain extent, but let’s also consider values of properties, right?

So does it benefit a home owner to sell at one time of the year over another time of the year based on a possible higher sales price or value?  For this I refer to the data that helps me track the current market conditions for the Laveen real estate market.  I see no data that supports a higher sales price, based on the month of the year!  Again, that bears repeating, I show no data that supports being able to sell at a higher price just because of the time of year home goes to market.  As an example, a home that is worth $203,000 in the Laveen area at this time, would pretty much in theory sell at the same price if sold in March or in July!


Lastly let’s look at the market factors and how that could answer when is the best time to sell a home in Laveen.

The short answer is it really depends on the real estate market.  One can NOT determine if a certain time of the year will be better than another without looking at CURRENT real estate market conditions.  Ideally the best time to sell for a home owner would be during a “seller market”.  A seller market is a real estate market that is best described by a situation in which there is a low level of current housing inventory for sale, and as such buyers have less choices of homes.  Because of the lower inventory of homes on the market the buyers must often compete with others buyers to purchase the property.  This of course benefits the seller.  Often times you may see multiple offer situations, and this of course is the best thing for a seller so they can potentially negotiate the best deal.


Putting it all together, when is the best time to sell a home in Laveen?

When it really comes down to it, my opinion, the best time to sell is when you are ready.  Yes, there are more sales that tend to occur during the April to September time frame, but there is still a LOT of homes sold during the rest of the year as well, and that also includes the holidays!  Home values are not really affected by the time of the year the home is sold here in the Laveen area.  Lastly, the real estate market condition will always be what it will be.  At the time I am writing this article, the Laveen real estate market is experiencing a seller market.  So, as it happens, we are into the higher sales volume months, and we are also in a seller market.  So, at this point in time it is a GREAT time to sell your home in Laveen Az.  The current market conditions could help net a better offer, and really help you negotiate a better deal.



SOLD SOLD SOLD 6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen AZ 85339

6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen AZ 85339


6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen AZ 85339 is on the market and for sale.  This home is located within the Rancho Grande subdivision in Laveen Arizona.  The subdivision extends from Southern Ave to Baseline Rd, and from approximately about 63rd avenue to 67th ave.  This is a community of irrigated horse property, with the majority of homes being at the very least one acre in size.


While most of the homes in Rancho Grande subdivision are a little bit older, some are newer.  Most homes were around the 1970’s, but there has been some newer built homes as well.  Vast majority of homes in subdivision are single story homes, and of course have horse privileges.


6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen AZ 85339, is a great opportunity to own irrigated horse property.  Let’s begin with location.  One of the benefits to horse property in the Laveen area, is that living in Laveen makes for easy commutes.  Most folk’s average about 20-30 minutes commutes to the central Phoenix area.  It is the perfect place where one can actually have an easy commute and then come home to a semblance of rural living.

6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen Az 85339 2 6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen Az 85339 4 6617 W Fremont Rd Laveen Az 85339 5

This home was built in 1974, when the subdivision was just starting to grow.  At that time what you have likely seen of Laveen was not in existence.  The 51st ave and Baseline area had a dairy of a good size, and NO homes at all.  Back then, the school was close to the post office which currently sits at 51st and Dobbins.  This home is 1782 square feet and has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.  The size of the bedrooms are surprisingly large, considering the age of home.  Most homes at that time, did have smaller rooms, but that is not the case here.  Property has 46,017 square feet of land, which translates to about 1.06 acres.  Again, this is irrigated horse property, so you will be able to have a pasture for your animals.

BONUS – NO HOA.  This is a real bonus, the subdivision does NOT have any homes owners association.


Current owners have updated home in many ways.  Home has been tiled throughout as well as custom painted.  Bathrooms and kitchen have been updated and have been modernized.  You will find that the cabinets have been changed and upgraded as well as counters, drawers and more.  This really is a must see home, you will love the ambiance and welcoming feeling to the home.  Large open greeting room as well good size family room.  Kitchen does have a breakfast bar and plenty of counter space.  Off kitchen dining area.

Property does have plenty of room for all your grown up and not so grown up toys.  Attached carport is LARGE and should fit about 4 cars for your convenience.  Plenty of room to park a large RV if needed, or toy haulers, trailers or even work trucks.  The back of property has been set up for both horses as well as possible covered work shop.  8 mare motel set up, the nice kind with sliding doors and all.  Good size breezeway and tack room, to house all your equine needs.  There is also a set up for watering down horses and tie down areas.

Outside covered work shop area, large enough to likely work on several cars at one time.  Currently used to park the small tractor used for mowing all the grass this property produces.  Again, a really must see home.  Maybe run your wood working workshop right here out of your backyard.


Did I mention there is plenty of room for your horses.  See pictures of the irrigate pasture below and the horse stalls!! Nice.

Future of area may make these properties even more appealing.  Currently the Arizona department of transportation is in the beginning phases of the South Mountain freeway.  At this point some homes along the planned route have been purchased by ADOT and are being demolished to make room for the new freeway.  The path is coming from the Pecos freeway extension, through the south west portion of the South Mountain municipal park, and then will head north between 59-61st ave.  Course there may be some variation there as is makes its way north to connect with the interstate 10.  See the photo below and you can see the pathway this new freeway will take.  So will this be a good thing?  I happen to think so because this will make the Laveen Arizona area even more easily accessible for commuters.  Instead of taking side streets to make it down town in about 20-30 minutes you could jump on the freeway and make it in less than half the time.  The work is expected to begin 2016 and go on for about 4 years, possibly opening in 2019.

Interior photos below.  This really is an awesome home, and you won’t want to miss seeing it.  Not many homes come on the market, that are horse property, that have great location, that are move in ready for both home owners and their animals.

Question: Should I sale my Laveen home?

By David Baker Real Estate Agent

Should I sale my Laveen home?  This is a question that I get all the time as a Laveen real estate agent.  Been working in the business now for going on 10 years, and for some reason this keeps coming up for people.  Maybe deep down most home owners already know the answer but sometimes want to check with others to make sure it is indeed a good decision.

So I’m dedicating this article in trying to answer the question, Should I sale my Laveen home?  The answer may seem overly simplistic but it really is a simple question in most instances, at least it is for me as a real estate agent.  The answer really is dictated by the home owner’s personal or work life and what it is that they desire.  There are different reasons that people would consider moving and the can be things such as:

Relocating for work

Relocating for proximity to family

Health reasons

Looking to move up to a bigger home (family is growing in size)

Looking to move down to a smaller home (kids have gone off to college)


Death in the family


These are really but a few reasons people decide to sell, and of course many more that run in all directions.  The real question that needs to be addressed when considering whether one should “sale my Laveen home”, is if it in the best interests of you, home owner. 

Should I sale my Laveen home, the financial side.  This really can have multiple sides to it, as it can be the financial side in terms of the money made at the end of the sale or it could also mean would one save money in some way if they were to sell the home.  The first is pretty simple to answer, just have a real estate agent give you an idea of current market value for the home and then deduct fees associated with the sale of a home.  This will give you an idea of the amount of money you will end up with in your pocket after covering all expenses associated with the sale, included any liens on the home such as taxes or loans.  If the number or amount of money after all expenses meets your needs, then this makes it easier to decide to move forward, right?  Also I implied that one could consider the sale of the home if it would mean saving money.  As an example somebody may have had a home with children that are now off to college and there is no need for the large home and all the expenses associated with owning the larger home(electric, gas, water, rooms not being used).  If that is the case (or similar type situation) then one can also look at fees associated with the sale of the home, but also look at estimates for payments on something that may be smaller.  Does the savings justify the sale of the home?  In both situations really it comes down to numbers and if the numbers make sense for the home owner.  A real estate agent can help you figure out those numbers, don’t be shy about asking.


What do you want out of your life?  This to me is a really important question to have answered, because in truth it can answer many questions and dictate the direction of your life.  What is important to you, and where and what do you want to be doing with your life.  Life is short, it goes by in the blink of an eye and shouldn’t you be doing with it what you enjoy?  Not only doing what you enjoy but maybe also being with those that are important to your life?  So if you desire to be in another area of town here in Phoenix, or if you want to be closer to your family in another state, then those are important reasons when asking yourself “should I sale my Laveen home”?  I have helped many people sell their homes that had grandkids in another state and wanted to be closer to the children.  I also have helped many buyers purchase horse property in Laveen and Phoenix, as it is a big goal for many in the area to own horse property.  Maybe you are pretty happy with your home over all but also happen to like working on your car, which in a subdivision means you’re working on your car in the driveway.  Problem with working on your car in a subdivision is that generally the HOA (home owners association) does not take too kindly to your auto repairing skills and may even access your fines because it is a violation of the policies to work on cars in the driveway.  So, choice needs to be made live the life you have not working on cars, or relocate so that you can live the life you want.

In summary, I really think that if you look at why you are wanting to sell your home and decide that it can make financial sense, then you have likely come to a conclusion.  The question of should I sale my laveen home becomes a lot easier to address when you have looked at both the financial reasons and the overall reason for making a move.

I am a local Laveen real estate agent, so if you have been asking yourself “should I sale my Laveen home”?, I am close by and ready to help.  You can call me directly at 602.373.6345 or e-mail me at dabaker21@msn.com.  If selling is in your future, I want to help you get it done.  Also feel free to request an appointment right at this link.

Why would anyone want to consider homes in Laveen AZ?

Why would anyone want to consider homes in Laveen AZ?

 Why would anyone want to consider homes in Laveen AZ?  As a home owner and realtor in Laveen, I would like to take some time to answer this very important question for anyone considering Laveen as a possible option to call home.

Yes, you can buy a great home for the money in Laveen, so you do get a lot more for the money.  Chances are you would not fare as well in other parts of the valley such as Glendale, Tempe, Ahwatukee or of course Scottsdale.  One can currently buy a newer built home from about 2000 or newer, 3 bedroom, 2 car garage for $150,000 to $200,000.  Matter a fact I have a home selling this week for just over $200,000 and it is a 3 car garage, 3600 square foot home with 4 bedrooms.  Good deal in Laveen, right? 

Yes, you can get more for you money in Laveen.

Laveen Az

Laveen offers a lot of outdoor activities for those who enjoy an active lifestyle. 


For starters Laveen is located at the base of the south mountain preserve, which offers 16000 acres of desert terrain to enjoy.  The preserve offers hiking trails from novice to the more experienced wanting the challenge of steep trails.  There are some folks I’ve heard that have tried to hike the entire length of the preserve via the national trail, which also happens to take you along the very top of some of the mountains. 

The south mountain preserve is also a favorite destination for bicycle riders.  Entering from Central Ave in South Phoenix, one can park the car and start enjoying some great road biking.  While some areas of the park have been closed off to cars, most of the park still shares it roads with cars, so be safe.  Looking to work on your uphill climbs, enjoy the pedaling all the way up to the towers at the top of the south mountain preserve.  This is a great ride, and is sure to cause some fatigue in the legs.  Also, mountain biking trails are plentiful, just pick one and explore.  I’ve enjoyed several from around the central entry, as well as some by the entry by Guadalupe and 48th street.  There is a very popular mountain biking trail on that side called the desert classic.  I’ve even seen some mountain bikers that are more intense who will be dropped off at the top of the mountain and ride down at lightning speeds, making some pretty incredible jumps along the way down.

South Mountain also offers horse riding excursions.  Coming in to the park from the Central ave entrance, you reach Ponderosa stables, where you can go out on a horse riding excursion.  If you own horses, then Laveen AZ also offers many homes that have horse privileges and setup.  You can find current Laveen horse property available right here.

Golf is offered at several locations in Laveen Az.  Currently Laveen offers two golf courses, both open to the public.  The first is Aguila Golf course located at Cesar Chavez Park at around 37th ave and Baseline, inside the park.  The other is cotton field’s golf course and is located at about 56th ave and Baseline Rd.  Both locations are an 18 whole course and are fun courses to play.  There are also two other popular courses further east in South Phoenix the Legacy and Raven. 

Cesar Chavez is a great park that many outdoor enthusiasts could enjoy.  First, the lake is stocked with fish, so one can enjoy fishing.  Be sure to get your license, as it is required just like fishing anywhere in Arizona.  Cesar Chavez also has baseball diamonds, soccer fields, and even a skate park where one can brush up on their tricks.

While this is not an exhaustive list, I hope this shares some information that you may find helpful.  So would you want to consider looking at homes in Laveen AZ?  Did I mention I am also a realtor specializing in Laveen AZ?  I’d love the opportunity to earn your business, feel free to contact me.  You can also view all homes for sale in Laveen AZ, right here.


Laveen has retail shopping easily accessible


No need to travel great distances for your retail and grocery shopping, all is conveniently located close by.  Safeway grocery store is located at the SE corner of 51st ave and baseline rd., and Fry’s grocery store located on the NW corner.  The commercial centers at these particular cross roads also offers:

CVS Pharmacy                   Walgreens                          Gas Stations                       LA Fitness

Applebee’s                         Native New Yorker          Barros Pizza                        Subway

And many others.



Downtown Phoenix offers great cultural entertainment, and is only a short distance away.  Central Phoenix is about a 20 minutes back road drive, and offers symphony hall, civic center, science museum, heard museum and much more.  The phoenix suns home court is also downtown, so stop by and catch there games.

More of a movie type of person.  Mills Mall is about a 15 minute drive at the intersection of the I-10 and Baseline road intersection, which has a Harkins theatre.  There is also another Harkins theatre located at about 104th ave and the 1-10.


So much close by, and in Laveen, the real question is why not consider homes in Laveen AZ?

Laveen Properties for Sale

Laveen properties come in all sizes and range of prices, so what can you get for your money?

 First consider the location which is really one of the main reasons that Laveen AZ is a popular location for home buyers to consider buying their next home.  Central Laveen AZ, which is about 51st ave and Baseline Rd, is only about a 25 minute street drive from central phoenix.  This makes for real easy commutes for most folks looking to keep work commutes in the lower time frame.  With the I-10 accessible either through Baseline Rd, 35th Ave or 51st Ave, the choice is also available to access multiple more routes via highways.  Regardless, location is great.

Second consider prices in the area and what you can get for your money.  While values have gone up all over the valley of the sun, the affordability in Laveen and South Phoenix is still reasonable.  I can point to one home I currently have under contract, it is priced at $229,000 and is a 3600 square foot home!!!  That is right a 3600 square foot home for $63.62 a square foot.  Not sure how many buyers looking in the Phoenix metro area realize what a great price that is for a home.  This would actually also be for a newer home, built 2006, large lot, and with a 3 car garage and side RV gate. 

What would your payments look like on a great deal for a Laveen property for sale?  Well given a purchase price of $229,000, with a loan amount of $220,000, one could look to pay about $1355 a month.  This would include home owner’s association fee, taxes, mortgage insurance, or in other words pretty much all inclusive.  This is based on current interest for a qualified buyer, with a $10k down payment.  Chances are your payments would vary a bit depending on your credit, the choice of loan ones uses to finance the home, and of course loan amount.

 How can you determine find and work with the best Laveen AZ Realtor.  Simple question, but really the answer has several considerations or layers that must be considered

First thing to find out, are you a buyer or a seller?  There are some realtors that work only with buyers and some that work only with sellers.  If you are looking to buy make sure that your agent does indeed work with buyers, or you may not get to see as many homes as you may hope.  If you end up with strictly a listing agent, they will not be so inclined to get out and show you homes, and opportunities may be missed.   A realtor that does work with buyers will also keep a closer eye on properties coming to the market, which as a buyer benefits you because they can make you aware of ALL the properties currently on the market.  As a seller make sure that you do indeed work with a realtor that has listed and sold several homes.  Pricing a home, marketing a home, negotiating a home sale, are all things that take skill and experience and those are accumulated years of successfully selling homes.

Realtors Experience

While it is easily accessible for realtors to find out past sales and number of transactions for an agent, it may not be so easy for the general public.  So where can one find out a little about agents in Arizona?  One place the public can gather information on all realtors is at the Arizona department of real estate website.  At this site you can find out how long an agent has been licensed, and if nothing else it tells how long they have been in the business.  Chances are if they have conducted business for several years and are still in the business, then they have seen some success. 

Another great way to find out about experience it to flat out ask an agent.  How long have you been in the business?  How many homes have you sold?  How do you market your homes or do you have a marketing plan that can be shared? 

Lastly you can help determine a realtors experience by those whom they have served previously, past clients.  Most agents that have accumulated sales over the years will get testimonials from their clients for this very reason.  As an example you can view some of my testimonials on this very site, some written, some by video.  As I have sold many homes, I also have had clients give testimonials on third party sites such as Zillow/Trulia.

Why is experience important?  Imagine you are going in for surgery, do you want someone who has never performed on operation to be your surgeon?  It has always fascinated me to see how some home owners or buyers will use a relative/friend who has just gotten their license to help with their real estate purchase or sale.  A real estate transaction involves money, and generally it involves a pretty substantial amount of money.  The lack of experience of an agent on either the sale or purchase side of a transaction can cost a client money.  Not knowing how to best market a home, negotiate a sale or even resolve real estate issues can cost money.  Let me share too, that many real estate transactions will have their little or big hurdles to overcome and that is not the time to have an in-experienced agent.

Bottom line, in considering a best Laveen AZ realtor, look to having an agent with experience

Market knowledge

                A realtor should have a good understanding of the real estate market in general.  As mentioned before having knowledge for buyers on new homes to the market, or as a seller’s agent what new competition is being faced is very important.  Beyond that though an agent should help you as their client understand the current real estate market and trends.  Is the current real estate market favorable to buyers or to sellers?  Are prices going up or are the prices of homes going down?  As a buyer, will you be facing a lot of competition in the purchasing of your home?  As a seller are you going to be competing for buyers in the market?  As a seller, is the market such that you should expect to have to help pay for buyers closing fees?  Having an agent understanding the current real estate market will help you determine what you can expect in either the purchase or sale of your home.

I’m also a firm believer that an area specialist, truly will know the market better than other agents.  While I do sell and help buyers all over the metro valley, I know more about Laveen, South Phoenix real estate than I do about other areas.  As an area specialist I do keep track of new listings, recent sales, market conditions so that I can advise my clients accordingly.

Presence online

                Can you find the realtor on-line?  Buyers begin their home search on-line so is your listing agent easy to find online?  National statistics now show that about 95% of home buyers start their home search on line.  As a seller you’d likely want to make sure an agent has a good presence on-line to help maximize your exposure to the 97% of buyers searching.  This also can go hand in hand with an agent who specialized in an area, has good on-line presence, because the chances are better they will procure buyers specifically in area you are selling.  Ask yourself, would a Tucson/Tempe/Scottsdale realtor be spending marketing money to attract Laveen buyers?  If all an agent does is place home on MLS, then no additional work is being done to market your home to a larger audience, and this limits exposure of your home. 


Communication is really another very important factor to separate average realtors from the best realtors.  When you call them on the phone or e-mail/text do the respond within a reasonable amount of time?  Regardless of whether it is a buyer looking to contact their agent to view a home, or a seller to ask a question, or even another realtor checking availability of a listing being able to respond in a timely manner is important.  Bad communication is one of the main reasons real estate clients are dissatisfied with their realtors.  If you can never reach your agent to schedule a viewing of a property, how will you ever secure a purchase?  If a seller has trouble reaching their agent, chances are other agents trying to schedule a showing or check availability are having trouble as well…….and this leads to lost potential buyers.

How do you know if an agent is a good communicator?  Call them up, and see if they answer their phone.  If a message if left, how soon do they take to respond?  In all fairness though, do make sure to give the agent some time to call back, as they may be out showing homes and currently working with a client.  I myself try not to answer the phone when working with clients, but I do return calls within a pretty short period of time.

Hope this article sheds helps to give considerations when searching for the best Laveen AZ realtor to help with your real estate needs.  Feel free to call if you have any questions 602.373.6345 or dabaker21@msn.co


Laveen homes for sale how to find Laveen homes for sale

By David A Baker          

In the market for buying a home, but having trouble finding current Laveen homes for sale?  There is SO much information in today’s world, sometimes it is hard to filter all the information, weed out the misinformation or outdated information to get to the most current information available.  Over the years I’ve received calls from buyers calling on homes they’d found on large company websites, only to discover that the home had sold months earlier.  These calls actually still happen, and there is a very good reason that those calls are still received.  Simple, these calls are still received due to the delays in getting accurate information by those larger websites, and do to their size.  They house SO much information, that sometimes the information most buyers are looking for is that which goes overlooked.  So you get lists of Laveen homes for sale that not current as well as lists which may include homes that have already SOLD.

 Find ALL current Laveen homes for sale here

I am a realtor who has been involved with Laveen homes for sale, both on the buying and selling side, for going on ten years.  As a realtor, I know where to get the most current information available, and I can guarantee you that I DO NOT look on large 3rd party websites.  Matter of fact, no real estate agent I know will ever spend time looking on other websites for potential Laveen homes for sale for their clients.  All realtors will spend their time looking on the MLS, which is the tool we realtors use to market our Laveen homes for sale to other agents.  Problem in the past has been that no one but realtors had access to the MLS, but that is not the case anymore.

Now any buyer looking to find current information on Laveen homes for sale can do so with access to an IDX provided by the local MLS.  Simply said, as an agent I can now choose to give potential Laveen home buyers access to all Laveen homes for sale currently on the market.  While it is not 100% percent of what realtors can see on their side, it DOES give you access to all the homes on the market, photos, tax information, maps and other pertinent information to buyers.  A distinction must be made at this point, as many realtors offer an IDX on their website.  In the case of my personal website the IDX provider is the VERY SAME provider of the service given to us real estate agents here in Phoenix.  In other words, the same provider that we have access to is able to allow access to buyers as well, it is really just a realtor’s choice if they would like to have that information given to potential Laveen homes for sale buyers.  Other agents may choose another provider, but their information is not as reliable as the SOURCE, and that my Laveen home for sale buyers, is the KEY distinction.

Communication is one attribute that a good Laveen real estate agent should process.  Not only should a Laveen real estate agent be able to communicate with you, the realtor® should also be easy to reach by phone, e-mail or text.  In the times we are now living with smart phones, laptops and other technology at our disposal, getting in communication with your Laveen real estate agent should not be hard.  Experiencing trouble getting your agent on the phone, or to respond e-mails or texts is a clear sign of a lack of good commutation.  As mentioned, a realtor® should be able to explain and communicate the process of the purchase or sale.  In today’s real estate market, there are several documents, disclosure forms and steps that must be taken to successfully sell a home, and a realtor® should be able to explain these forms to their clients.  Any buyer or seller of a home should be made fully aware of the process and steps that will occur along way.  After all the purchase of a home is a process and can take on average 30 to 40 days to wrap up once an offer is received.  The Laveen real estate agent you choose should be able to explain this process, and explain it well.  If you have any doubts as to what the steps are in the process, then you should be sure to ask your realtor®, because your knowledge of the process will help make the most informed decision.

Area knowledge as well as Market knowledge is paramount in choosing the right Laveen real estate agent.  Knowledge of the area is simple for realtors that work an area.  This includes knowing streets, knowing where area business are located, the local library, grocery stores and just a good overall knowledge of the area.  It helps if your Laveen real estate agent also has lived in the area as well as worked in the area for a number of years.  Ask yourself, how likely would a Cave Creek specialist be to have buyers ready and willing to a buy a home in Laveen?  Also, how easy will it be for them to schedule time to show potential buyers homes in Laveen?  As for market knowledge this would be a working knowledge of sales going back years, the history of subdivisions, the peculiarities of some areas in Laveen, why values in different areas vary, the good deals, the bad deals, market trends, seller market or buyer market, best times to sell in Laveen, average sales prices, average days on market and other such statistical information.  Also there are several different niches or markets that potential buyers may be interested in, and does the Laveen real estate agent have knowledge in that area of the market?  Laveen real estate for example offers older homes, subdivision homes, golf course lot homes, mountainside homes, and even horse properties.  Laveen homes for sale include homes in subdivisions, homes on acre lots, homes with well water wells, home on septic system, all of which require a certain amount of knowledge.

Experience and years in business is another factor to consider when looking for the right Laveen real estate agent.  Experience is simply how the realtor has been able to gain their knowledge by undergoing, encountering and dealing with different situations in the real estate transaction to gain the wisdom necessary to overcome similar situations in the future.  Based on statistics from 2011(and they are similar every year) only 11,461 of over 72,000 in AZ realtors do more than 3 real estate transactions in a given year.  Only 1500 agents in Arizona complete more than ten transactions in a given year.  What this tells is that it is important to make sure and select a Laveen real estate agent that has the experience necessary to successfully help throughout the entire real estate transaction.  A good question to ask would be “how many homes have you sold, or help a buyer purchase”?  As a realtor, I have managed to average about 50 homes sold every year for the last several years.  This experience has helped me market, negotiate and overcome obstacles during transactions to help meet my client’s goals.

As a potential seller you would want to make sure the Laveen real estate agent has a marketing plan and a proven track record.  Mentioned previously was experience.  If a realtor has a good marketing plan for selling homes, then the results should be several homes sold which would indicate a pretty good track record.  It may also be a good idea to look on the internet for reviews of any potential Laveen Real estate agent you may be considering.  Testimonials from past clients is a good indicator of whether a real estate agent has done a good job.  You can see some examples of my past testimonials by clicking here to view written and even some video testimonials.  As to a marketing plan, this is a written plan on what basic activities your Laveen real estate agent will do to promote, maximize exposure, and get to as many potential buyers as possible to view your home as possible.  It need not be exhaustive, as the real estate transaction has SO MANY variables and things to do, but it should be at least a basic simple plan to market the home.  Will the Laveen real estate agent just place home on MLS, or do they also leverage technology to give properties the highest exposure possible.  Do they have good exposure on google with their own website?  One question which I think is important, is does the Laveen real estate agent market to buyers in Laveen?  An agent that does market to buyers in the area stands a much better chance of showing your home to potential buyers than an agent that does not, right?


Hope information has been helpful and informative.  The goal is really to help potential buyers and sellers make an informed decision in selecting the right Laveen real estate agent.
