Smoking Deal Alert

If I had a nickel for every time a buyer has told me “if you find a smoking deal, let me know” I would be writing this post from Aruba and not my home office. (Actually, I wouldn’t be writing any posts – I’d be drinking Red Stripe and rum drinks starting at 8 a.m. every day.)

This qualifies as a smoking deal – a 1,200-square foot casita in Westbrook Village previously listed at $140,000 and since lowered to $125,000 after the lender accepted my buyers’ offer at that price and before my buyer got cold feet about purchasing long distance.

Inevitably, once this casita sells, I will have buyers tell me “see, if you can find me another smoking deal like that one” then they’d be interested. Except these things don’t exactly grow on trees.

Re-reading this, I feel like I’m Cal Worthington trying to pimp this property. The thing is, anyone who has looked in the Phoenix area’s retirement communities, ought to appreciate the value that comes with a golf course property priced at $125,000.

Tile floors, newer carpet in the bedrooms, nice fixtures … the kind of bank-owned property that makes you think everything you’ve heard about foreclosed properties is wrong.

I’m done with the pitch. Take a look for yourself. Tell a friend. But don’t let this be the golf course home, the smoking deal, that got away.
