Mon, Apr 17th 2017 5:30 am by Barbara Baker Sedona Real Estate

So lots of our Sedona Homes for Sale have Tenants and if you need to list your property with Tenants - here are some helpful tips

1) Review our Local Laws and Your Tenancy Agreement.  the AZ tenant Act states that a landlord must give a tenant a 48 hour notice to show.  

2) Communicate with the Tenants. Even though the AZ Tenant Act states that a 48 hour notice is required - many times a tenant will allow a few hours or 24 hours. ......and remember the 3rd point!

3) Incentives can sway a Tenant.  So perhaps you cut them a deal on the rent while it is being listed, perhaps you pay for their closing costs - there are all sorts of ways to make an unruly tenant a Happy Tenant!  Hope this h...

Where there is a Starbucks it's a Great Place to Invest in Real Estate! So Sedona Real Estate is a GREAT Investment

Mon, Apr 10th 2017 5:15 am by Barbara Baker Sedona Real Estate

Sedona has 1 Store front Starbucks, and 2 others in existing Sedona Mall.  According to RISMEDIA, there is something called a "Starbucks" Principle".  Franchises like Starbucks have vast resources to dedicate to gathering info on demographics, population growth, and development.  Before a company like Starbucks dedicates a massive resources and capital, they make sure they know everything about the area and it's potential growth.  So with Sedona having 3 Starbucks in West Sedona and Uptown alone - that should be an added tool in purchasing a Sedona Home for Sale.  For all your Sedona Real Estate needs, call, text at 928-301-0669, or email me here!

A Common Myths and Misunderstandings about Shopping for a Sedona Home for Sale

Mon, Mar 6th 2017 6:45 am by Barbara Baker Sedona Real Estate

When buying a Sedona Home for Sale let's clear up a misconception  right now. - It's best to contact the listing agent because they are familiar with the property.

Look for a Buyer's Representative, someone who has the accredited  Buyer's Representative (ABR) designation.  There are a few of us who have that designation in the Se...
