DiedinHouse.com – How Did Zach Bagans not Think of this?

Every now and then on ESPN Radio I’ll hear an ad for something called DiedinHouse.com which, theoretically, tells you whether someone has died in your home. The big hook? According to the ad, only in three starts “are Realtors required to tell you if someone died in a home.” Which isn’t actually correct. If, by chance, an agent is aware of a death in a home and is asked if someone died there, the agent is required to disclose what they know.

Homes Near USAA, American Express and Discover

When I was driving around the other day, I saw a number of interesting neighborhoods in the area of Deer Valley Road and I-17. These all are newer homes and all are fairly close to three of Phoenix’s larger call centers – USAA, American Express and Discover Financial.

Below are some listings from Dynamite Mountain Ranch. For […]

Not many in the United States paid attention to what was happening in Mexico at the time, understandably, since we were in the midst of our own domestic war at the time. Interestingly enough, according to an article from the Huffington Post, Cinco de Mayo isn’t celebrated widely […]

Say What, Mr. Listing Agent?

This week, I read one of the more remarkable sentences that I’ve seen in a near-decade in real estate. Setting the scenario, buyers make an offer on a property. When they receive the insurance claims report (a.k.a. the CLUE report), they learn there once had been a rather large water leak coming from the refrigerator water line and, while it had been professionally repaired and remediated, it was enough to make the buyers uncomfortable. (Adding to their angst was the difference in real estate law between their home state and Arizona; unlike where they come from, disclosures are not part […]
