Celina AcostaVlog



Phoenix Real Estate Update for January 2024: In a development that will dismay "the housing-crash forecasters" Phoenix, Arizona is in a Seller's Market again! After a brief period of being a "Balanced Market", almost every city of the Metro Area had a increase in the last 30 days. Although 2023 was difficult for the housing market, we had a 4.8% year to date market appreciation and 2024 is already off to a great start with boost of mortgage application since the beginning of the year. I think homebuyers will finally great a break!

Buqui Bichi: The best brewery in Mexico is now here in Chandler, Arizona. They won the gold medal for the best beer in the world. I came to taste this soon-to-be-famous beer called "Banquetera" to see what the fuzz was all about...Amazing! This was not my first time at Buqui Bichi, so at this point, I have tasted most their menu already and I can honestly say everything is delicious!

 

Located in the heart of downtown Chandler, their mission is to provide an exceptional experience that reflects their story and values in every sip and bite. With a fun atmosphere, super friendly staff and a menu bursting with mouthwatering dishes, Buqui Bichi is quickly creating cult-following. Their Tap Room is the perfect place created for beer lovers--a place where friends gather in a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy and experience different and unique flavors.

How to Calculate Your Home's Value

Celina AcostaVlog



It is important to price a listing strategically so that it actually sells for its highest potential. And if you’re a home owner who’s thinking about selling your home, today I’m gonna talk about how to price your home to sell and how to avoid the 3 common pricing mistakes.

Mistake #1. Inadequate Research – Not conducting the proper research before listing the property on the market or going by the "Zestimte" without considering particulars.

Mistake #2. Home Improvement Pricing – Thinking that every single dollar you spent on your house you’re going to get back and mistaking maintenance with upgrades. The difference between real and perceived value.

Mistake #3. Pricing your home with an "extra cushion" so that people can negotiate you down. Timing and value go hand in hand in other words, time is money. Have you seen a home for sale where they made one or all of these mistakes? Have you ever made any of these mistakes before? 

Do you wanna sell your home in 2024? Don't know where to start? Let's talk:

Phoenix Arizona Real Estate Market Update for September 2023

Celina AcostaVlog

 

Phoenix Arizona Real Estate Market in September 2023 is still in poor shape however: We have no bubble or crash. Demand is very weak with listings under contract down 16% from this time last year and with the 30-year fixed mortgage rate still north of 7%, qualified buyers are either on the fence or simply priced out. May be forever. In my opinion affordability is a bigger problem than 7% interest rates.

Phoenix Arizona Real Estate Market Update for August 2023

Celina AcostaVlog

 

Phoenix Arizona Real Estate Market :: It is mid August, officially back-to-school season and we are exited because this was summer was too long, too hot. The hottest Summer on record for Phoenix Arizona did not equal the hottest real estateI market. I went on vacation came back and it seems that everything pretty much stayed the same it seems that Buyer and Seller are stuck in a holding pattern.
