This is excellent news for the High End Market and this sale marks the highest sale in Paradise Valley and Arizona in the past 10 years.

Search 5 Million Dollar Homes

Metro Phoenix’s high-end housing market received a boost earlier this week when a 35,000-square-foot mansion in Paradise Valley sold for $10.5 million in cash. It’s the region’s highest price home resale since the boom, though there have been some pricier homes built.

The house, situated on 5 acres, was once owned by Phillips Smith, former chairman of Taser International. He gave the home back to lender M&I Bank in 2011.

The buyer, M56 Place LLC, has carefully covered the names of its principals, the people who will own the home.

“The house is in great shape and was a great deal for the buyer,” said Joan Levinson of Realty One Group. She negotiated the sale for the lender and buyer and declined to disclose names of the people behind M56 Place.

The house was originally listed for $20 million, and then lowered to $15.9 million. The mansion comes with a 21-car garage, two swimming pools, a guesthouse, seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, $1.2 million in security and sound equipment, a 13-seat movie theater and two large libraries

Smith lived in the home and maintained it until the sale.

Price per square foot

For anyone still in doubt about home prices increasing in the metro Phoenix area: on March 28, the price-per-square-foot of a home sale in the region had climbed 8.68 percent from the end of February, according to the Cromford Report.

Mike Orr, publisher of the online real-estate report, said that beats the highest monthly price jump during the region’s housing boom: 7.47 percent during January 2005.

The biggest 30-day price change during the past decade happened during September 2007, but that was a drop of 9 percent.

Valley Home Values

The Republic’s annual analysis of metro Phoenix home prices and sales will be in Sunday’s paper and online at homevalues.azcentral.com.

Some homeowners may look at the data and think prices look low for their neighborhood.

The report is based on annual data from 2011, and many areas didn’t start to see increases in home values until late last year.

For Sale By Owner (FSBO) Statistics

FSBOs accounted for 10% of home sales in 2011. The typical FSBO home sold for $150,000 compared to $215,000 for agent-assisted home sales. Only 

FSBO Methods Used to Market Home:

  • Yard sign . . . . . . . . . . 44%
  • Listing on Internet . . . 33%
  • Friends/neighbors . . . .27%
  • Open house . . . . . . . .19%

Marketing is an art form and unless you understand the techniques, lingo, who your customers/buyers are and where they are located, or truly know how to market a specific property you will never understand. Picasso cannot teach you how to be an artist!

The odds are against you, go ahead and try it yourself.  I am rooting for you.  In fact you can get a lot out of agents, call them over for a listing appointment, ask them what they will do to market the property, and mimic them.  There is a chance you might sell the home but there is a greater chance that you will not.  Real Estate is a unique industry, sellers or buyers do not pay any fees upfront, real estate agent takes all the risk in spending money marketing the property, negotiating for the seller, and time.   I hear that the most precious thing in life is time.  Some have a lot and some hardly have any left.  Why waste your time doing something you know nothing about? Save your money, time and allow me Juan Pesqueira and my luxury circle do all the marketing for you, negotiate the top price, and get your property sold, all at your convenience.

*** Let’s be upfront the only reason you are tying it yourself is because you don’t want to pay any commission fees.  Well lucky for you we are running a Promotion to all FSBO listings, give us a call 480.458.8007 or email us LavishPadBoutique@gmail.com for details. Keep me posted and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us ***
