Documents, checklists, links for buying/selling/leasing property in Arizona

oday the shear magnitude of what one has to account for in a transaction is unprecedented.  This list includes: documents, inspections, permits, repairs, loans, time frames, disclosures, etc. There are many good reasons for having a Realtor on your side. For instance, missing a time frame or overlooking a clause in a contract could force a buyer to forfeit an inspection and buy a home needing costly repairs.  When selling it is important to realize exactly how much your property is worth.  The links provided below give information about the real estate process.  Feel free to call with questions or to hire an agent who will act in your best interests.
