Study the market carefully by looking at any listing that might suit your needs. Keep track of what these listings sell for so that you’ll be able to determine if a home is priced right or is overpriced for the market.
One of the best ways to watch home sales in your zip code is by subscribing free to Arizona Home Sale News, an email publication of mine with over 16,000 subscribers.
With Arizona Home Sale News you get the official sales price about 3 weeks after closing. Other sources of “solds” like zillow.com run 3 to 4 MONTHS after closing.
