Selling South Mountain Homes

Selling South Mountain homes is my job. I grew up in this area,  I attended Sierra Vista, Lassen, Valley View and graduated from Julian. Then I headed over to South Mountain High School, where I graduated in 1995 then went over to ASU in Tempe and got my degree. In my mind, it doesn't seem like that was very long ago...but it's been 22 years since high school graduation!! My point is that I sell in this area because I know the area. Who better to help you with the sale of your home than an agent that knows our unique part of town inside and out? I know the neighborhoods, know what was there before the homes were … [Read more...]

Top Three Things That Will Sell Your Home Fast

What are the top three things that will sell your home fast? Over the past ten years, I have noticed that what sells a home quickly and for top dollar is fairly consistent from neighborhood to neighborhood. Some might think that the entire home has to be updated, painted, new fixtures added, new flooring. All of which are really nice to have from the buyer's perspective, but if the seller does not have the funds or the energy to do all that, then they only need to focus on the main things. First, make sure the home is clean and uncluttered both inside and out. Landscaping should be immaculate to give great curb … [Read more...]

Homes with pools in South Mountain AZ

Homes with pools in South Mountain AZ. The projected highs for this weekend are, depending on which weather station you are listening to, 114 degrees to 116 degrees. Summer does not officially begin until the end of June, but it has already been pretty warm here in Phoenix. Granted, by our standards of measuring heat, it has been relatively mild. In the high 80's, low 90's. This is the time of year where I am ever so grateful for our mild winter. And also so grateful and happy that someone invented air conditioning. This is also the time of year where many buyers look for homes with pools. If you have a home in … [Read more...]

Is it a good time to sell my South Mountain AZ home?

  Is it a good time to sell my South Mountain AZ home? I should think so, when you have more buyers than sellers, it's a plus for the seller. For the price range of up to about $250,000, there are more buyers than there are homes available. Homes tend to sell quickly if they're priced well and show well. For the price range from $250,000 and up, the average time it takes to get an accepted offer on a home is 98 days. That's still fairly quick here in the communities of South Mountain. The number of single family homes available for sale in all of 85041 and 85042 is 204. Considering that on average 101 … [Read more...]

Your South Mountain area specialist, Luz Ibarra Ceballos. Hello, I'm a local real estate agent here in Phoenix. I live and work in South Mountain also known as South Phoenix. I grew up here. I am a product of the Roosevelt School District, South Mountain High School and ASU. What does all this have to do with real estate? Let me tell you. Real estate is a local market.
