Tiny Houses from None Other than Amazon

We all know you can find almost anything on Amazon, but did you know that includes a house? A dive into the online shopping giant shows that they actually have a fairly wide range of kits and prefabricated tiny homes for sale. What could be better than getting the tiny house of your dreams with free shipping?

From basic shipping container homes to rustic cabins, prices range from just over $5,000 to more than $50,000, allowing you to select the kit that fits into your budget. A quick search for “garden house” or “cabin kit” will pull up most options, with these tiny dwellings perfect for guest houses or extra office space if you aren’t looking to permanently downsize.It’s worth noting that many of the kits are sold through third-party vendors, and most will need you to get inventive when it comes to a bathroom and installing insulation, but isn’t improvising part of the fun with a tiny home? You’ll also want to check local building codes, as laws vary state by state about acceptable structures. Once you’ve done your research, it’s just click and go.

Real Estate Update June 2019

We’ve had an extraordinary year, both in terms of rainfall, and also in terms of just nice weather. Instead of suffering through days of 100 plus degrees, it’s been pleasant 80s & low 90s. Everything is so green and beautiful this year.

People have discovered that Yucca is not only an inexpensive destination, but a high quality of life place too.

It’s all meant a big uptick in interest in the Yucca area. We’re putting in long days answering questions ranging from costs of solar systems to wells and septic systems. Between showings, emails, and a steady stream of calls, our days are fully occupied.

Blah blah blah, the travails of a land guy. Anyways, back to work…

Have a great June!

Quick Spring Update

It’s been a whirlwind of a time here as we’re seeing sustained interest in property out here where the Grand Mohave desert meets blue Sonoran skies.

Be careful what you wish for, I’ve heard, and for years it’s been a drought in Real Estate here. Sure, there have been sales, but never a return to how it had been before the boom of 2005-2008. We had wished for some calls and lo and behold, the phone keeps ringing, and the emails and leads from a variety of websites are pouring in.

So, it’s back to “half days,” you know, 12 hours a day…

For the best deals, call or email. Don’t wait, all of a sudden we’re a hot commodity out here, but there are still some shockingly good values.

Wow! Every once in a while, a really good value appears at Stagecoach Trails. It’s even nicer when it’s our own listing.

Saturday Week Highlights

It was a busy week with a lot of clients and running around. It feels like I’ve been by all of the 130,000 acres at Stagecoach Trails.

Meanwhile, we ended up listing seven different properties in the Yucca area, and there’s some real beauties in the bunch.

There’s something for every price range, and a wide variety of properties either closer to town, or snuggled up by the mountains.

So don’t wait to buy land, buy land and wait…

Today, it’s been a little quieter, and I’m grateful. There are so many ranch chores that need my attention. Little by little I’m finishing those “must do’s” and getting caught up on gardening too.

Today was battery maintenance day where I clean all of the terminals on my 28 golf cart batteries (T-105s,) and check to make sure that every cell (3 to every battery) is full of distilled water. It’s pretty time consuming, but vital to battery life.

The weather is delightful, that time between the chill of winter, and the blazing heat of June. We’re loving it!

 

 

The House of Cards

Remember all those sub-prime mortgages that blew up in 2007 and popped the housing bubble? The widely-held consensus is that millions of them were foreclosed as housing markets cratered. Since then, the remaining ones have been quietly disappearing as markets recovered.

Here is the problem: That is just a fairy tale. The truth is these mortgages are still dangerous and could soon undermine the housing recovery.
