How two Southern kids survived the heaviest snow Prescott has seen in 90 years

opportunity okay so what are we here to talk about you want to talk about windows opportunity that was your lead in she had a dream opportunity she missed a lead in windows of opportunity interest rates ah there it is there it is here it is it’s all connected to me now okay windows of opportunity um there are some really great programs that have now come out through several local mortgage lending companies here um that we can refer you to but if you’re like on the fence like i don’t know what to do am i ready to buy well first of all of course you’re ready to buy yeah who wouldn’t want

mortgage lender companies right right doesn’t sound right don’t don’t get the pickle lady or drink before no but anyway i have 90 day new programs where you can lock in your interest rate for 90 days yeah so although you may not be sure do i really want to move am i up for this but geez i don’t want to lose out on the interest rates because interest rates are rising are they not randall brown yeah if you’re if you’ve been living in a cave yeah here’s here’s the news bulletin interest rates are going to go up this year yes they’re even predicting by the end of this year this year as high as six percent as high as six and a half as high as six and a half you’re right which is you know you think that’s really high it’s really not it is a story of things and the scheme of things a healthy economy people should be making six six and a half on their money uh so that’s kind of where we’re going that’s not necessarily a bad thing but uh you wait a few minutes yeah lock it up lock it up at five and a half am i right yeah lock it up at five that’s where we lock that up 90 days that’s a whole quarter man lock it down lock it up lock it up lock it down lock it up lock it up lock it up lock it away you lock it up or lock it down we would be happy to refer you to some of these companies um and so you could at least lock in an interest rate while you’re debating the pros and cons of moving here which there are no cons but you know hey everybody has to do their time your due diligence yes yeah you have to go through your problems check idaho and make sure it’s too cold and check out phoenix to make sure it’s too hot it’s too hot and um you know make sure you check out oregon make sure it’s to granola it is too granola yeah yeah come to prescott but that’s okay we understand we

Lots of people don’t like to pay HOA fees; you may be one of them. Actually, very few areas in Prescott have extremely high HOA fees, and in many cases you might just be happy to pay them. We explain in this video.
are we ready are you ever gonna say anything yes i will say it now hello hello hey peeps it’s time for another weekly one down ahead to find the one thank you yeah with diane and randall bro here had a great day today uh went to our little award ceremony yeah we did and we were very excited we won two awards tickle pink tickle pink and uh it’s very nice to see uh at our organization your heart efforts and work yeah is recognized yeah and so we were very happy to go we had a lovely time and also support all of our other agents who are out just killing it yeah we are we’re a really really good agency we’re a little bit better dressed though we were a little bit dressed uh we’re a little tired now so we decided actually we were on our way after our lovely award ceremony we were on our way to film our weekly wine down we were all dressed up and looking good and then a client called yeah cowboy’s work is never done and so she had a couple of questions so instead we mixed that we raced home to look up uh some things that she needed to know about and give her some information so now here we are we’re like you know what tired tired yeah we’re very tired we got clients all the time that tell us you know we’re homebodies yeah they watch these wind downs and they say you guys are out all the time and you’re partying all the time but we’re kind of home buys the truth is we’re kind of homebodies yeah you know so after today we were yeah so i said why fake it you know i’m gonna put on my robes and we’re gonna light the fire and we’re just gonna be who we are drink our wine keep it real yeah last couple of times we had to skip the one because we were in public you know but uh at home no public intoxication although there’s a guy looking over my shoulder here that’s our that’s my favorite statue okay come back over here okay all right anyway what we wanted to talk today about was after having a lovely day and helping clients a lot of questions we get about hoa hoas yeah yeah yeah um a lot of people especially coming from out of state are like i absolutely refuse do not want an hoa i hate them i don’t want to spend them don’t even show me a house with that unfortunately i’m here to tell you you might want to look at hoas here in prescott a little differently yeah um they are not as cost prohibitive as they are right yeah the high hoas are generally tied to some sort of uh golf community there’s a country club and all kinds of amenities and all that stuff so those can get pretty pricey although some of it would be a lot more reasonable than you would think right and you don’t have to be a golfer you know to get your money’s worth they got a lot of other things going on in the community uh but setting that aside if you think you’re never going to use something like that um you may want to consider hoas north of zero uh because hoas kind of police your neighborhood you may not want to be policed uh but if you’re not police that means your neighbors aren’t policed either and that can lead to trouble it can lead to big trouble we’re going to show you a little clip yeah i’ll clip in yeah i’ll show you kind of show why sometimes hoas are not that bad yeah for instance you know here there are some beautiful neighborhoods the hoas are 300 a year yeah so don’t automatically say no hoas because what you may think is a monthly thing is not it’s an annual it’s an annual thing or a semi-annual yeah and you know some are like three to 500 a year yeah and a lot of that you know it’ll be uh the limited public areas they may have like little parks or something yeah uh where the upkeep is is taken care of for you but at the very least it’s office administration so when you call and you say you know my neighbor next door is doing this and that’s against the uh the covenants you have some recourse well they need money to be able to pay for the people who follow up and put the liens and all that other kind of stuff so i think a lot of people are afraid like especially coming from california i don’t want any hoas i spend 500 a month it’s not quite the same hoa experience you might have elsewhere yeah hoas here are not yeah that crazy yeah so the the clip in particular is a home that we showed a number of times adorable property it was kind of a small place it was a cutie pootie but it was really cute precious precious in a real convenient area of town it couldn’t it didn’t move for a while i mean usually homes like that move in a heartbeat and it was because of the next door neighbor uh no hoa no h.o.a next door neighbor had about 150 cars yeah in the front yard yeah and you know nobody wants to live next to them yeah no recourse no resources no recourse there’s nothing you can do about it they’re not breaking any laws they’re parking on their own property uh and when i say own property they were they were vehicles parked on the sidewalk the front lawn the front porch yep yeah you know just they were like half a dozen cars so you know when when you say i don’t want hoas you need to maybe think twice about it because they’re not that bad something stupid like that destroy your property absolutely unbelievable yeah and you know and then other than that some hoas with country clubs well that goes towards a lot of you know nice things we live in a nice area but our our rates are what 150 a month for hoas not bad yeah yeah and that includes a lot of maintenance yeah stuff yeah so i have no complaints with that at all yeah we went went by you know prescott has a lot of little old ladies and they love things like gnomes you know uh little elves you know and and those can be cute you know but we passed a home just the other day beautiful neighborhood yeah how many how many little gnomes do you think we’re in the front yard i think approaching 200 yeah yeah i mean it was like it was a little overkill a little i mean it was like you couldn’t see the light it was all gnomes it looked like a gnome invasion and without an hoa guess what then you can they can add one more gnome to that whole display i mean if they put like you like a nazi gnome or something like that you might be able to appeal to the city council something that’s really offensive but but gnomes gnomes are known i do like gnomes though i’m not opposed to them yeah just not too hard i have a i have a son-in-law that could be a gnome uh a son-in-law to bee that sort of gnomish so i like nose shout out to ian carr there you are he’s our favorite little gnome yeah he is well now we’ve got a new favorite gnome yeah yeah he’s he’s more of an elf i think he’s morbid he’s not his hair yeah sorry guys you know you’re at risk jake yeah hey jake and ian jake future son-in-laws yeah so we like there’s nothing you know we like cute things we’ve got you know like we have saint francis over here you know uh we like that kind of thing too but some people go crazy right and and when it does it’s amazing it can destroy property values and if you don’t have an hoa office uh there’s nothing you can do there’s nothing you can do so don’t write off hoas you if you automatically say i don’t want an hoa you cut down a list of beautiful homes that that could be yours just by you totally will cut off you seeing multitudes of pretty homes so instead of no hoa maybe low low hoa you know low hoa is the way to go there does that kind of rhyme i’m gonna trademark that yeah low hoa is the way to go all right well that is all for today’s lesson that’s it because i need to move because i’m getting hot this yeah rope is warm and this thing is putting out so uh but anyway let’s wrap this up the beautiful lady have a good evening and uh anyway cheers to you for our awards so you can reach us at
