Welcome back everyone, I am excited to talk to you about today's topic, "Should I sell my home or rent it out?"

When you ask yourself this question, you need to consider a few things first before you make your decision. The first is, "Do you want to be a landlord?" You have to get into the mindset of a landlord, knowing that you will have occasional calls and other things to deal with on the property. 

The next thing to ask yourself is "What is your Payment?" and "What Would the Property Rent for?" We always want our clients to have positive cash flow, so we want to make sure your rent is a little higher than your payment. A few hundred dollar buffer after expenses is what we want.

The final thing we want to look at is whether your property would be an ideal rental. Typically, as prices go up, rent goes up too. If you want to invest in real estate, you should be sure you are making a wise investment first. 

These are just a few of the things you should consider before deciding to become a landlord. If you have any questions for us, give us a call or send us an email. We would be glad to help out!

Today, we want to discuss an important topic in our hot market. As more and more buyers flood the Arizona market, people are turning to online evaluation sites like Zillow to find their home values. Today, we answer the question: How accurate are Zillow's home evaluations?

There is no way a computer can do what a human can do when it comes to evaluating a home's value. There are a lot of factors that go into a home's value, and some of them can only be accounted for by physically visiting the property, which a computer is obviously incapable of. For example, location, configuration, and the condition of a property can only be evaluated by a real person!

If you would like to get a true, accurate home evaluation, or if you have any real estate questions, give us a call or shoot us an email. We would love to give you a hand any way we can!
