Spending the weekend (26-28) in Phoenix and want to see the area

4 Replies

Hi Everyone,

My girlfriend is interviewing for a job in Glendale next week, and we will be spending the weekend (26th-28th) to get the a feeling for what it is like around Phoenix.

I invest in small multi-family and want to get the lay of the land for assets $600k and below. She is interesting in buying a personal house.

Does anyone have any advice on areas we will want to check out for either small multi family or personal residents? Or does someone recommend an agent that would be willing to meet us and tell us about the area? Thanks!

Hi Marlon! I hope you and your girlfriend enjoy your time in Phoenix. The real estate market here is BANANAS, and there are lots of great opportunities for investors. Obviously for a PR you'll wand to be close to work in Glendale. There are some specific areas there (especially around the stadium) that are very desirable and should give you some nice appreciation over the next few years.  

For investment, there are some fantastic options all around the valley. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about different areas or investment strategies!

Phoenix is very different from Seattle which makes Phoenix a great place to invest. Even investors from California, particularly Orange County, San Diego, and SoCal CA are investing in and finding great deals in AZ.

Small Multi family are very competitive to find though. Lots of Single Family investments in Glendale, Phoenix, Mesa.

There're 7 MF listings under $600k in Glendale for sale right now, DM me if you'd like details or to see them when you come to town.

For entertainment:

Old Town Scottsdale and Downtown Phoenix have just about every form of entertainment you can want... and then there's biking and hiking and Salt River Tubing! ;))

Good luck to your GF with her interview Marlon! ;)

Hi @Pamela Sandberg ! I'm interested to see what 110 degree weather is like. It is currently raining in Seattle (go figure, lol!). Thanks for the tip on looking around the stadium in Glendale. This trip will be mostly to start getting a feel for the neighborhoods and distances between places. It seems like there are a lot of opportunities for investment in single family homes all around. Are there any areas that should be avoided?

@Mike M. ,that thread was really interesting. The Subject To sounds really interesting. I probably will have home questions about it if we end up moving out. I have been thinking that Single Family homes might be the best place to start. Any recommended areas to be looking at around Glendale? 

@Bevla Reeves Thanks for the good luck. Me and her dad are rooting for her. I will see about shooting you DM about one of them as we get closer to heading out. I've learned not to hold my breath about anything staying on the market too long around the Puget Sound area.
