Living in dusty Phoenix, I've heard rumors that dust has an effect on solar panel power production.   It stands to reason that a layer of dust might diminish the sun's rays from being absorbed completely by the panels.   So the big question is, do solar panels work when they get dirty?  Panels can collect more than just dust.  Birds might find a spot to perch above an array, adding a layer of "you know what."  That layer of "you know what" can accumulate and reduce a panel's production.   Between that and dust, efficiency can be impacted.  But how much of a reduction in power?     Now that apps have been created that show the power generation for each panel at the push of a button, it can be easier to track.  Power production can be tracked for a daily or monthly average.  Comparing tha...

Visiting my daughters about six times a year means travel.  None of them live in Arizona so visiting includes lots of planning and airline flights.   On my  plane rides, it’s typical for me to bring a variety of reading materials.    On a recent trip I brought a book that has been in the drawer of my nightstand for 2 years.  Now is the time I figured to pull it out and bring it along. The book I brought was given to me by a past President of the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS® during my first full year as a Director.   The book is “Leadshift” by John C Maxwell.   This past Director has served a variety of positions for the National Association of REALTORs®, Women’s Council of REALTORs® as well as the local association.  She’s an amazing leader and inspires others with her words...

A longtime friend of mine shared a mobile veterinarian service, "Valet Vet."  His daughter works there and the company is 100% female owned and operated. Looking at their site, I was very impressed with the level of expertise and experience!   Their Yelp reviews are impressive! https://www.yelp.com/biz/valet-vet-mobile-veterinary-services-phoenix If you're looking for mobile vet care - this looks to be a great company with excellent, caring service!   If I had a pet, I'd want that level of care :)  They do have a physical address where specific services are performed, but all are able to come to you in your home to service the needs of your pet.

With low inventory, everyone is receiving offers from investors to purchase homes even when those home owners haven't listed their home(s) for sale.   Phone calls, text messages, and letters in the mail.  Sometimes it's a daily occurrence! Due to our low inventory, a predatory practice has surfaced.   Investors are approaching home owners directly to purchase their homes and the contracts used aren't approved by the Department of Real Estate.  Sellers are unwittingly going along with the sale without being protected during the transaction because the contracts don't cover language protecting them from a variety of pitfalls.  The other aspect of these investor purchases, is the investor buying their home is also pre-selling their home before the sale closes to someone else, and all witho...

You're fulfilling a dream that you've had for years - building a new home out in the county.  You're in an area that is all new with neighbors far apart and the setting feels ideal.  But is it legal?  In Arizona, parcels of land that are subdivided into more 6 lots or more and resold become subdivisions.  THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to watch for is a Public Report.   If you are building a new home and have not received a public report, the subdivider of your subdivision of over 6 lots is building an illegal subdivision.   Illegal subdivisons are known as "wildcat subdivisions" in Arizona.  Wildcat subdivisions don't provide the regular protections because the public report is not included and you haven't received enough disclosure about the area.    A public report includes the following d...

Take A Look At The Greater Phoenix Area Real Estate Market Snapshot For July 2021!Did you miss our monthly real estate market snapshots for the Greater Phoenix Area?

Here is the most recent Phoenix AZ Real Estate Housing Market Report for June 2021:  The average sales price of Phoenix homes increased over $5,500 in June, reaching another new all-time high of $509,398. At the same time, the average sold price per square foot increased from $250/sf to $257/sf in June. After dropping for three straight months, days on market for Phoenix homes in June remained the same as in May, at the record low of 23 DOM.  Phoenix home sales jumped to 1,686 in June from 1,595 last month, and sales are 2.8% higher than in June of 2020. The reason 2021 sales are so similar to 2020 sales for June is because even though COVID-19 started shutting down our economy in March of 2020, June is when the Phoenix housing market opened up and rebounded (from 1,241 sales in May to...
