    Three (3) house on my street sold in the past few weeks.
    One went for $210. It was a flipper. When I toured it I was not impressed. Too much carpet.
    O.K. It's on a golf course. However, the view from the back patio is mostly Del Webb Blvd.
    The other 2 went for around $150-$160.

    Yes they are Peg. If you find something you like priced right it's gone quickly. I have been unimpressed with some flips as well.

    It's interesting on the flips, some look good from a distance, but look close and you can tell easily if it was done with by a craftsman or simply by a guy who is looking for a quick buck.

    Our condo sold in under 24 hours, 2k over asking price, cash deal. There were three bids. We knew the condo market was hot, but we were still shocked.

    No, we're not leaving Sun City. Just moved to sf home.

    It is good news. Western Phase 2 off Agua Fria. I miss being able to walk to everything and a few neighbors, but I like the house and the White Tank mountain views.

    Cool. Nothing like a view of nature. I see the white tanks too. Not as close as you but I still enjoy them in the distance.

    Congrats E, that sold really quickly...even by Sun City standards. Condo's are better values these days as flippers are driving up single family home prices at a far faster pace than attached homes. With condo's having both non-rental clauses and limits on how high they can be priced, there's limits to what flippers can do with them.

    Just as a matter of information, Sun City's home market inventory has been low for the past couple of years. Now with KHov sold out, it is bordering at record lows. Homes often never hit the market because the better realtors have client lists they try and fill before even listing a property.

    Yes, the wildlife and views are what attracted me. The two car garage and mancave are what attracted DH.

    It was a downsizing from the condo, losing 350 sf. We gave the AZ room furniture to Valley View Food Bank Thrift shop. You can call them for furniture pick up and schedule a time.

    I remember in another thread Bill mentioned timing is everything. This was a prime example of that from the purchase of the new place to the sale of the condo. There was a shortage of condos in our area until about a week after we accepted the bid. Then I counted about ten that went on the market overnight.

    Stopped at an open at 10401 West Oak Ridge yesterday that Tim Nixon (Tempus) had, wow. Big dollar house, but comes furnished and is incredibly done on the remodel. Not for eveybody, but someone will snap it up.

    Interesting that they choose to put the fridge in the laundry room instead of the kitchen. Not a deal breaker I guess but a bit harder for cooking. Not a bad idea to sell fully furnished, depending on the quality of the furniture. The theater room is a kick.

    Pretty sure there was a fridge in the kitchen as well C.

    I was in Phase 3 this afternoon for a meeting and there were anumber of good looking homes on the market.

    I really love the architecture of the homes in Phase 3. Many crazy, beautiful, modernist exteriors. And Phase 1 is so quaint. But overall I like Phase 2 the best. I just wish Phase 2 had a good supermarket inside it...that's the biggest downside, IMHO, crossing on of the "big roads" to shop for food.

    You're correct I guess I had missed it. In fact there is a huge one.

    I agree C about Phase 2 and lack of shopping as well as less places to eat. I'm adjusting to not being able to walk to everything.

    We have a second fridge in the garage we don't use.

    You know there used to be a grocery story in La Ronde Center where Barnett Delaney is now. There just wasn't enough business for them.
