Peoria Plans Split Trilogy at Vistancia

photo1340311csa2927Residence of the North Peoria Active-Adult Community of Trilogy at Vistancia are divided over Shea Homes’ expansion plans. The City Council approved a rezoning proposal that would allow Shea Homes the Owner of Trilogy at Vistancia to do an expansion. This would be 360 acres previously zoned for three separate individual housing developments, none of them by Shea Homes. Shea plans to turn the land to the North and the west into Trilogy West. Trilogy West would be an 55+ Active Adult Master Planned Community. Shea needs to annex Trilogy West into Trilogy HOA within the next few weeks, ultimately paving the way for homes to be under construction by the fall of 2014.

Shea Homes and many of the current residence don’t agree with the plans to do this project. Here’s what it in tells: Trilogy West would add about 1,000 homes to the approximately 2,300 already in Trilogy, as well as a second clubhouse and other amenities, such as a pool, tennis courts and outdoor spaces. The communities would connect through golf-cart paths and trails for bicyclists and pedestrians, but not by roads.

Residents of Trilogy at Vistancia are divided over Trilogy West’s annexation into the Trilogy HOA. Many current residence are looking forward to the additional amenities, but others are concerned the expansion could cause drainage problems, create traffic congestion and clubhouse-parking shortages, increase their HOA fees and strain existing amenities they say already are crowded.

“Shea is building a new clubhouse but it doesn’t generally duplicate what’s in the existing clubhouse, so that means people will be going back and forth, back and forth, which is going to put more strain on the road system, put more traffic through our streets!” Trilogy Resident.  Not all residents are opposed, however. Many say they’re excited about the new amenities.

Getting Full Asking Price When Selling Your Home

first-Time-Home-BuyersSelling your home is a complex process and there are a lot of factors that you will need to consider. Your goal will be to sell your home in a timely manner, while getting the highest price you can.

However, many properties sell at a discount because the buyer is able to negotiate a lower price on the property.

Although it is impossible to guarantee that you will receive your full asking price when you sell your home, there are things that you can do to increase the likelihood of this happening. You will need to have a strategy that attracts highly motivated buyers and improves competition.

Here Are Some Tips To Keep In Mind That Will Help You To Get The Full Asking Price When You Are Selling Your Home:

  • First of all, make sure that you have a reasonable asking price to start with. Research your local real estate market and find out what other buyers paid for homes comparable to yours.
  • Hire a home inspector to perform a full inspection of your home, so that you can fix any problems. If you can show the buyer the repair receipts and inspection report, you will be in a better position to ask for full price.
  • First impressions are very important and can improve a buyer’s perception of your home’s value. Make sure that your property has plenty of curb appeal and feels welcoming.
  • De-clutter and clean your home – this makes it appear more spacious and luxurious and will make a buyer willing to pay more.
  • Ask your real estate agent to create a flyer that compares your home’s price to other similar listings in the area – showing that your home is a great deal. This will convince buyers that your asking price is already discounted.
  • Schedule your property tours as close together as possible. This can mean that you get multiple offers at around the same time, which will encourage the buyer who is eager to seal the deal to pay full price.
  • If you have any rooms with bright colors that might not appeal to the average buyer, give them a quick makeover with neutral tones. These are safe colors that will increase the odds that your home will sell.
  • If you have the budget to renovate one of the rooms in your home, it should be the kitchen or the bathroom. Studies have shown that renovations and upgrades in those two rooms have the most impact on the potential selling price of the home.

With these tips, you should be more likely to achieve the full asking price when you are selling your home. For more tips, contact your trusted real estate professionals at The Partners Team at 623-544-8577

Sun City West Housing Market is Returning

Sun City Homes for SaleThe  Real Estate Market in the Northwest Valley’s  continues to show steady growth in Homes Sales five years after the nationwide collapse that led the country into recession. “We’re getting into a normal market,” said Diane Barnes and Polly Brown of ReMax Professionals.”  “We’re not seeing a dramatic up tick in sales year over year, but it’s been extremely encouraging.

We find that there are several factors fueling the ongoing upswing, which began about two years ago but really took hold over the past 9 to 12 months. The inventory in Sun City West dropped, but the volume has now rebounded. Active inventory in the Sun City West area was 241 units.  There were 33 closings in the Sun City West area in November 2013, slightly lower that last year. The Sun City West area had 48 new properties under contract in November of  2013.

Foreclosures down

The number of bank-owned properties in Sun City West decreased, another indicator things are back to normal. “It’s a seller’s market again, prices are definitely increasing,” said Diane Brown, with ReMax Professionals “The Partners Team, whose area of business includes Sun City Grand and Sun City West, Pebble Creek, Corte Bella and others.”

“We are seeing significantly more activity with the younger baby boomers 55-65 that are now hitting the Active Adult Retirement areas. One of the signs is the number of people buying and remodeling, which adds to future values  to the Homes for Sale in Sun City. An increase in first-time buyers benefits the operators of Sun City West.
