Many Canadians are paying full cash for their Arizona purchases. Funds for purchase are coming from savings and other liquid assets but increasingly Canadians, realizing the investment value of Arizona property, are selling off other investments and assets to take advantage of the opportunities to the south. If you are planning on financing your purchase we suggest you get pre-qualified for your loan. Financing for Canadians purchasing U.S. real estate has become scarcer and requires a higher downpayment. Once qualified, you’ll know the conditions, loan size and timing before making an offer making you a more credible buyer in a strong position to negotiate purchase pricing and terms.
UrbBurb offers a lot more than access to houses and a chauffeur to show you around. Buyer agents protect your interests, bring a wealth of local knowledge to the table and know how to negotiate and close a transaction in even the most trying of circumstances. Working with an UrbBurb professional should be your first move when buying a property in the Valley. Here’s why:
Representation: Most houses listed on the market today have sellers with professional representation on their side. For the seller each step of the transaction is monitored by a listing agent backed by an experienced listings broker. Who is representing your best interests? By negotiating directly with the seller’s agent you are putting yourself at a severe disadvantage since that agent is legally bound to disclose everything to their client – the seller. You wouldn’t go into a courtroom without a lawyer, so why go, without representation, into one of the biggest purchases of your life?
Information: The best way to determine the correct price of the home is to analyze in detail the prices for which similar homes with comparable lot locations, upgrades and other factors sold for. Online real estate search sites offer resources for finding listings with only basic data. They do not offer the level of real-time home sales data that can be accessed by a Realtor through the local Multiple Listing Service. We maintain one of the Valley’s best research teams meaning that you go into every negotiation armed with the most current and detailed market and property information available.
Experience: The information gained from working with so many clients throughout our careers is invaluable when it comes to helping you pick the best house, on a great street and in the neighborhood that perfectly suits your interests and needs. We know the architectures, the communities and the pros and cons that define the many living options in the Valley. All this is backed by our legendary negotiation skills. A move is a big thing – do it right with our professional guidance.

Our research and market knowledge is irreplaceable when determining offer price and contract terms for your purchase.
