Rattlesnakes in Maricopa, AZ?

Are there Rattlesnakes in Maricopa, AZ?

rattlesnake_maricopa_az

You may be thinking about buying a home in Maricopa, AZ but first want to know if there are rattlesnakes.  The answer is YES.  It’s the desert southwest, and there are rattlesnakes in the southwest desert.  I remember not long ago coming home late at night and seeing one crawling down my street.  I couldn’t believe it.  That was the only time I have personally seen one in the wild.

Every so often you hear a story of someone seeing a rattlesnake.  They hibernate during the colder weather and come out at night when it warms up.  When I’ve heard any stories of people finding them in their homes it’s always been in the garage.  It’s a pretty rare occurrence to see a rattlesnake though.  So don’t worry about it too much.

To be on the safe side I wouldn’t walk around at night, especially through any kind of brush, and make sure the seals on your windows, doors, and garage are snug.  The worst thing you can do is catch a rattlesnake by surprise because you may get bit.  If you do get bit, get to the hospital immediately.

Anyone Missing Teakwoods in Maricopa?

Do you miss Teakwoods in Maricopa, AZ?

teakwoods-maricopa-az

I know this isn’t very real estate related but I was just sitting here thinking about when I moved to Maricopa, AZ in 2011.  My sister had already lived here and took my family out to dinner at Teakwoods and we had such a great time.  We threw peanut shells on the floor, ate great food, and had a few drinks.  I was anticipating going there to eat many times in the future in this new town I just moved to.

Relocating to Maricopa from New Jersey was a great move for us, leaving behind the cold winters, high property taxes and high priced old homes in New Jersey.  We started our new lives and I was excited that Maricopa had Teakwoods, Quiznos, Rosati’s Pizza, and Baskin Robbins.  However, not too long after I moved here they all closed.  🙁

Good thing there are some great developments on the horizon for Maricopa.  Check out my other article on the pros and cons of Moving to Maricopa.

Pros and Cons of Buying a Condo in Chandler, AZ

The Pros and Cons of Buying a Condo in Chandler AZ

Are you thinking about buying a condo in Chandler AZ?  Condos are a great choice for some, not a good choice for others.  I’d like to take a look at the pros and cons of buying a condo in Chandler, AZ.  So read on to find out if you’re making the right choice for you.  And feel free to comment below.

Pros:

  • Amenities – Condos are great for enjoying amenities you may not have owning a single family home.  You could have access to a fitness center, community pool, jacuzzi, concierge, parks, tennis courts, and many others depending on where you buy.  And the best part is that you don’t own these areas and don’t have to worry about upkeep.
  • Location – Usually condos are close to the action!  Many condos are built near downtown areas and have easy access to public transportation and hot spots.
  • Maintenance – Condos maintain the outside of the building including the landscaping.  You only need to be concerned about your own living space.  This makes it very low maintenance to own and upkeep a condo.
  • Security – Many condominiums have security guards and some are in gated communities.  This will allow you to feel a bit safer!
  • Living Less Expensive – There are many available condos in many different price ranges.  If you don’t have a big family and are interested in owning real estate this could be a great way to go.  You can definitely find comfortable prices!

Cons:

  • Market Conditions – Condos are pretty sensitive to market conditions with resale value so you may or make not make out well when and if you decide to sell.
  • Fees – You will have association fees that help pay for the maintenance of the common areas.  So consider this when budgeting for a new home.  The association or community board also governs the condominium community.  There will be Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&R’s) that will set guidelines and rules for the condos.
  • No Land Ownership – When you own a condo you don’t own the land you are on.

So, what do you think?  Are you ready to buy a condo in Chandler?  I can help you get started.  You can browse on your own by clicking the link below or just give me a call or email and I will set you up with a personalized search.  Let’s do it!
