8 Things to Consider Before Buying A Scottsdale Airbnb as an Investment.


Vacation rental websites such Airbnb, HomeAway or VRBO (.com) is making it easy for property owners to rent out their own homes, condos, or townhomes offering unique lodging to tourists at rates sometimes cheaper than hotels. Is Scottsdale, Arizona a good idea to buy a property dedicated to short-term housing?

“It can be,” says Juan Pesquiera, Realtor at Attorneys Realty. “There is indeed money to be made in the Airbnb and short term/vacation rental market especially during the season. But you really need to understand what you’re getting into and realize that because this is all still fairly new, the rules are changing, and you also could lose money especially in the beginning.”

Here are 8 Things to Consider Before Buying a Scottsdale Airbnb Investment.

1.Home or Condo type property

Will you be buying a house or a condo (townhomes and lofts included) as a short term rental investment? Condos will allow you to get into locations like old town, Kierland, downtown, mill ave , Tempe town lake ((Scottsdale, Tempe, Phoenix) at a lesser price of a single family home.  But then you must factor HOA fees and HOA regulations and rules.

2. Regulations

Scottsdale, Arizona has seen its fair share of nightmare Airbnb stories. “Neighbors struggling with grief from short-term rentals will soon get a reprieve. But will it be enough? Gov. Doug Ducey on Tuesday signed a bill allowing for more regulations of short-term rental operators in the state… AZCentral. But Scottsdale struggles to enforce strict rule for Airbnb and other vacation rentals Examine the local ordinances and rules. The biggest threat to the short-term rental business is swift-changing local laws that limit their use.

3. Read the fine print on your HOA or CC&Rs

If you have decided on a condo vs a Single family home. You must find out – Does the Homeowners association allow for short term rentals? If you decided on a single family home, make sure to review your CC&Rs. Many of the new high rise condo developments and new single family home developments in Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe restrict short term rental and in the HOA disclosure forms allow a 3 months minimum rental policy for properties in the development.

4. Fees pile up before your 1st guest books

Most new homeowners quickly find out that the list price of a home or condo is just the beginning of a laundry list of expenses. Owning an Airbnb investment property is no different. You need to factor in costs like utility bills, cleaning services, landscaping, pool service and repairs. More importantly: what happens if you can’t rent it out right away or have a slow period of vacancies? Can you afford that? What happens if home values decline, thereby driving down the asking price on your rental?”

Don’t forget that Airbnb takes a 3% service fee from the host for each reservation, which also eats at the profit. Additionally, there are other unlikely yet potential expenses that must be considered. What if your tenant is injured in the home? What if you’re the victim of theft? Are you insured for unforeseen issues or injuries, etc.

5. You’re not the only one

It’s a competition. The company claims to operate in 65,000 cities with more than 3,000,000 listings. How will you differentiate your rental? Airbnb success is based on reviews from people who stay in your home. You will need to wow your guest which at the end will cost you more. This includes items like quality bedding and bath accessories; professional photos and staging the property; welcome gift baskets; not to mention your valuable time serving as a good concierge and providing a list of local vendors, attractions and other hot spots.”

6. Flexibility. 

Short term rental is seasonal, and you make more during high season in Arizona. Make sure the property works as a long-term rental or other use like a vacation or 2nd home and even a retirement home. You will retire one day why not decide sooner, rather than later? Short-term rentals listed on Airbnb.com, HomeAway.com or VRBO.com are a great supplement to your rental income, but it is not a good long-term strategy. So, when you’re analyzing a property to be made into a rental, make sure its cash flows as a year-long rental too.

7. Uncle Sam wants his cut!

Know the tax rules by speaking to your accountant. You will need to pay taxes on your rental property.

8. Have fun, enjoy the process, and learn

At the end of the day every real estate investment is the same. Your success is related to the overall market and price value increase. If you manage your property right, consider it a business, account for every expense, and provide a fun, safe, and clean place for guests. As a bonus offer some incentives like free uber/lyft rides, coffee Starbucks card, free dinner at a restaurant to stand out from the rest and the potential of turning a profit increases in return will be a great investment choice.

Scottsdale, Arizona (including Tempe & Phoenix and throghout Arizona) is a perfect place for Airbnb.com, HomeAway.com,  VRBO.com, or any short term rental investment. Scottsdale, Arizona offers sunny weather year round. Our winters rarely go below 50 degrees. Arizona State University is the largest university in the country with over 100 thousand students.

the GOOD. the BAD. the UGLY. SELLING a home with TENANTS | Phoenix-metro


There are many reasons someone might need to sell a tenant-occupied property in the Valley of the Sun (Arizona).

You hate being a landlord, landlord life is not for you! You want to take advantage of Phoenix, Arizona hot sellers’ market. You are looking to move money elsewhere. If you must sell a home with tenants its best to tread lightly

and do some research. Kidding… JK it’s not breaking bad style of selling homes although we have been called the wild wild west or real estate. Everyday homes in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, Peoria, and through Maricopa County Arizona are being sold with tenants in place.

Here lies the good, the bad, and the ugly of selling a home with tenants plus some advice and guidance from top Realtor Juan Pesqueira ——————->

The Good (Thank you baby Jesus):

By selling a home with tenants it allows you to continue collecting rents and making money (Cheddar baby). On top of rental income when you close escrow you will receive a huge check (Cha Ching). And if done correctly you will not need to transfer or pay back the deposits. This is a perfect world scenario but as well all know nothing is perfect. There is a saying in real estate, what can, will go wrong. Expect the unexpected.

The Bad (issues that must be addressed upfront):

Tenants have rights! Every landlord in Arizona should read the Arizona Land Lord Tenant act. Get familiar with this bible. Know your rights and the tenants’ rights before listing any property with tenants.

A common tenant right is 48 hours’ entry notice. Many tenants will allow showings in short notice and or in 24 hours but that should be addressed with the tenants and in writing. An entry notice must be in writing or email, should be followed up with a call, and a confirmation. This means that any and all showings, inspections, or any entry must be scheduled days in advance.

On the other side buyers don’t have the time to wait for a showing in a hot market like Phoenix-Scottsdale-Tempe, Arizona. You will have many buyers pass the home up for a showing or interest and some are good buyers. A tenant (not knowing) can easily sabotage a sale by making it difficult to access or not allowing showings. ** Reminder *** read/familiarize the Arizona Land Lord Tenant act. It’s your landlord bible.

The Ugly (Go F**K YOURSELF!):

A tenant can kill the deal fast! A tenant can damage the property before and after inspections. A tenant can damage the home before final walkthrough. If the damage is substantial the new buyer might want to renegotiate price, credit, or terms. The new buyer could back out and the sale falls through. This will leave the issue with you. At this point you lost a good buyer, you waisted a lot of time, and your home is in worse shape than when you put it up for sale. A lose all the way.

A mad or uncooperative tenant is difficult to work with. If a tenant is being difficult with you (Seller) how do you think he will be with a 3rd party like a Realtor? Not good, the deal is dead on arrival.

The truth about selling a home with tenants is your buyer pool is smaller for many reasons (access/entry, unforeseen damages and issues, etc.). Financing is a little trickier for tenant occupied homes when it comes to 1st time home buyers and todays #1 buyer is 1st time home buyer. When selling to an investor buyer make sure to have P&L, leases, and tenant info ready. But all these issues if addressed upfront and correctly will result in a top of the market sale.

Advice (From a top Realtor, John Pesqueira)

Tenants are a crucial part of selling a home with tenants, they somewhat take the position of the owner. As a top Realtor in the Phoenix, Arizona market (including Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, and through Maricopa County Arizona) I have sold many homes with tenants in place. My advice is right from the beginning of the move in date or 1st meet start building a good repour with the tenant. Don’t be a slum lord! Always be courteous and quick to correct issues/respond. Communicate with them often, maybe add verbiage the lease that allows you to enter every 3 months for maintenance and ask them if selling in the future would be an issue – even if you’re not considering selling. This will allow you entry/access and by doing so will keep you up to date with your property.

Although you’re in the real estate business, your also in the people/customer service business. In the people/customer services business people will work with, not against people they like.

This last part is some option scenarios for selling a home with tenants, a guidance as you will.

Option 1: the best option is allowing the lease to expire or let them move out. This allows you to fix up the home and get it ready to sell. It’s almost guaranteed you will make more money without a tenant in place and the home will be ready for new buyer. Even investors prefer a move in ready home vs one with a tenant. Unless they are getting a deal or have done this before.

Option 2: You must sell, don’t spring the sale on the tenant last minute. The minute you are considering selling let the tenant know. This will give them time to prepare and or enough time to find a new place if need. Let’s say at first the tenant is upset, give them time to come around. Sometimes people need a little time to reconsider. Ask their thought about it and if they will be cooperative. More than likely they will be cooperative. If they could be a problem offer them some sort of incentive (less in rent, $ for early move out, dinner, gas, etc.) for early move out or cooperation. If you know for a fact, they will be difficult then wait till the lease expires and let them move out but don’t rush them out. Tenants have rights.

Option #3: Hold onto your investment. Phoenix, Arizona and surrounding cities (Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert, Glendale, and through Maricopa County Arizona.) is one of the hottest real estate markets in the country. Home values continue to go up and last I heard the Phoenix metro area holds the fastest rising rents.

The last and really the first step is choosing an agent. If you choose an agent to begin with then they will guide you through the process. It allows the agent to begin building repour with the tenants as well as yourself.

A Realtor selling a home with tenants should be courteous. A Realtor should try to work with them and handle any and all showings through them. A Realtor should give the tenant 48+ hours’ notice (Or what was agreed upon) to enter. A Realtor should treat them like they treat any client. A tenant should access to the Realtor and his/her team 24/7. And finally, the Realtor should understand the tenant’s position; also understand the seller’s position as I have been both in my life.

Your next step is to decide if you want to sell your property with tenants.  We invite you to do one of two things:

  1. Free Property Price and consultation. Have a confidential meeting with me to find out the price of your property in today’s market.  There is no charge for this service, and you are not obligated in any way to use our services.

Top Realtor® guide SELLING an OUT-of-STATE property in Arizona from afar…


Trying to sell a house in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe or throughout Arizona is tough enough, and if you’re selling a home from out of state, it can be damn near scary but in reality its It’s Easy As Pie…

Whether you’ve had to relocate because of a new job, are selling a second home or investment property, or are trying to settle the estate of a former relative, a few simple steps can help you to sell your Arizona property quickly and avoid carrying costs for property that you’re not living in.

The goal to selling home or condominium from out of state is to get the best price for your property in a reasonable period of time. You don’t want to sit or toy with the market for too long.

If you take the time to address these crucial areas before you carry on with your life in another state, you’re likely to secure a sale quickly—so you’re not carrying multiple mortgages or paying for upkeep on an empty property.

1234STEP #1 Choose REALTOR® Juan Pesqueira.

Don’t go at it alone, that’s crazy! You must hire a REALTOR, who will be responsible for showing and marketing the home, making sure all legal paperwork is complete and timelines are in order, checking on it in your absence, possibly hiring contractors to handle upgrades and repairs, and ensuring there is a smooth sales transaction.

STEP #2 THE PRICE IS RIGHT!

Because you’re trying to sell the home or condo quickly and achieve the highest possible price, it’s important to price the home right (Market value) rather than test the market with a high figure and take price cuts later. Although full disclosure some properties benefit using the price high, take price cuts. This will be part of the market evaluation Juan Pesqueira does. Although we want to sell quickly, I don’t want to leave money on the table.

Rely on your agent (Juan Pesqueira) to look at the home and advise you on how best to price it after looking at comparable home sales, doing a full market analysis, and tapping into your agents market knowledge. This will determine how long the home will remain on the market at that price compared to other price points.

STEP 3. De-CLUTTER, clean up, GET SHOW READY.

This should be step #1 and its always best to have another set of eyes (Your REALTOR) go through the home first. As REALTORS we deal with buyers, see a lot of property, and know what buyers will say or think before entering.

Today’s Buyers want a home that looks move-in ready. That means you’ll need to make sure the place is clean and free of clutter. Get rid of all the crap, remove all personal property, make it smell good.  

If you need to use an auction company, hold a garage sale, and hire professional cleaner to get the most value – do so.

Every buyer will get a home inspection during the inspection period. If you know of any major issues, its best to let your agent know upfront (as you will need to fill out the SPDS – Seller property disclosure statements). Be sure to make any necessary home repairs and don’t ignore cosmetic upgrades. If you do, be prepared to make them, or give a price drop/credit during inspections.  Although you don’t need to renovate the entire home, it’ll help to fix major problems, have the home professionally cleaned and repainted.

With that in mind, before you skip town, you might want to hire an on-call handyman to address last-minute repairs who can accept online payments.

STEP 4. SEX SELLS and in real estate it’s necessary!

Scottsdale Real Estate

Once you have everything in its place and are ready to show off your home OR condominium, do so with professional photos (This is covered by your real estate agent Juan Pesqueira). Virtual reality is the new selling trend, a 3-D floor plan, aerial photography and video, or walkthrough video will enhance your property online and allow buyers to check it out from their living room. In the luxury real estate world this is mandatory as your buyer can be outside the state or country.

A professional photographer will know how to best capture your home’s SEXIEST features. Especially now that many potential home buyers start shopping online, professional photos can enhance your listing.

You’d be surprised how many potential home buyers are turned off by horrible photos, bad lighting, etc.

If you live in Canada, California, New York, or anywhere in the country (but not in Arizona) and trying to sell your property in Arizona – whether it be an Investment, luxury home, penthouse, doing a 1031 exchange, condominium, land, multi-family, etc. and looking to put your property on the market, i can help.  It’s Easy & Simple. This is a full service listing we offer to out of state sellers.

How is the process done?  Easy, if there is a way for us to have access to the property all documents for listing and selling the property can be completed via email (DocuSign) or scan.   We will also send you showing reports and market updates throughout the process.  Juan Pesqueira is ALWAYS available by phone (Text and Call) or email to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

If you are considering placing your property on the market, please don’t hesitate to contact Juan Pesqueira or give me a shout.

2016 has been an amazing year for luxury real estate in the Phoenix Metro market (includes Paradise Valley, Scottsdale, Arcadia, Biltmore, etc.). Multiple records were broken. I still believe that we are underpriced for the type of home and size (land and structure) you can buy compared to around the world. We don’t have ocean front but we do have lake front, we don’t have sky scrapers but we do have the most amazing sunsets. I’ll take mountain and desert views any day of the year! Why not retire in Arizona? From Scottsdale to phoenix, from Paradise to the Biltmore – the perfect weather and views await…

Some love and TLC will get this Scottsdale home poppin in the 85281!


Located on the south west corner of 62nd st and Exeter Blvd across from the Scottsdale learning center in the 85281 zip. This prime Scottsdale home with contemporary vibe and funkadelic colors was once priced $3.1 million, now the bank says sell it!

Some love and TLC will get this Scottsdale home poppin in the 85281 11

The original list price was $2.120M, today it’s been dropped down to $1.56M. Let’s cut to the chase, it needs work – the pool is empty and covered, the colors and design is out of touch even for today’s contemporary standards. But when you break down the overall property; over 5,200 sf, 4 bedrooms, 4.5 shitters, 3 car garage, and on .68-acre lot it’s a good deal that could be a better deal since it’s been listed for 200+ days.

Whats hot in real estate? Location, Location, Location…This is one of the best locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix combined. To the east is Old Town Scottsdale, to the west is Arcadia and Phoenix/Biltmore area, and to the North is Camelback Mountain/Paradise Valley. The who’s who in Arizona and celebrities call this area home. The Phoenician Resort, the Biltmore resort, the W, Scottsdale Fashion square, Maya day spa, art galleries, bars, shopping, dining, etc. all within a short drive or damn near walk. Now let’s be clear, at the current price this is not a fix n flip price but it’s a great buy fix and hold investment. Hold if for 3-5 years before putting back for sale or for all you 1.7+M home shoppers this would be a perfect next buy if you’re willing to do some work. The bank is asking $1,558,600 but as they say everything is negotiable…
