When you see the temperature in Prescott is going to be 17 degrees, you may think “the weather outside is frightful.” In this episode the Pickle Lady explains why it may be a lot more delightful than you might realize, and why even folks from the Deep South often find Winter to be the best of Prescott’s four glorious seasons.
hello what’s happening out there today here with pickle lady cheers and our pickled brigade mugs that contain non-caffeinated coffee beverages for all of our 18 year old uh our home buyers home buyers that we’re setting ourselves we’re not trying to influence and we’re trying to influence not at all yeah but what we are here to talk about is a lot of people who move here we talk about how we have four beautiful seasons and none are too extreme then we have some clients and they move in and they’re like you said it wouldn’t be cold and tonight it’s going to be 17 17 degrees well here’s the thing does it get chilly willy at night time yeah it does it does but the difference is when it’s 17 degrees it’s usually three o’clock in the morning and you’re when you’re already snuggled under your coverage 17 degrees in your bed yeah yeah and it’s not 17 degrees in the daytime no for instance last night we had a pretty cold night now we’re standing outside it’s in the 50s yeah i want to say last night it was down to you know 27 yeah it’s getting up to close to 60. yeah um look at this weather it’s like spring here yeah so don’t let these low temperatures that you see like oh my gosh it’s 15 degrees hardly ever happens yeah when you see 17 degrees in a place like idaho for example it’s gonna be like 17 degrees all day long oh yeah you know it it doesn’t work that way here no yeah it gets very chilly sometimes at nighttime yeah so don’t worry about oh i looked on the weather channel and it says it’s 17 degrees there but they’re at yeah it’s a cold place it’s a cold place it’s not it’s not it’s not it’s not it’ll be fine you have your fireplace on and you’re sleeping yeah because it’s three o’clock in the morning no one’s like a few days in the winter where it’s in the 40s yeah yeah it it it’ll it’ll be cold at night and you know it might be drizzly so it’s really cold or whatever and you do something called stay home uh but like then you know the next day the day after would be up in the 60s that’s the thing the thing about prescott winters is that they’re not relentless they relent uh you know yeah that’s a good way yeah you you get inner space with days where you can run around in your shorts without a shirt i know you know the pickle lady likes to do that and so she’ll do that you know trying to keep the family safe we got to get to keep the family safe don’t forget so don’t let that throw you because yeah it can get pretty cold at nighttime when you’re sleeping but in the daytime look at your day yeah it’s gorgeous it’s in the 60s yesterday i was out taking some buyers i was like wow i’m getting a little hot actually i’m like i’m starting to sweat yeah so don’t let a lot of variety and you know i i i’m from the south so i’m not a cold weather guy but you know i enjoy having a few days where we’ll have a little snow or you know it’s a good day to have a a cup of coffee with the pickle lady right you know sit down on the back porch under a blanket and snuggle and you know all that kind of stuff and then when you get tired of being cold then you get 60 degrees you get 60 degrees yeah and spring has sprung again but the key to remember is do we have snow occasionally is it gone by the next day pretty much usually gone by the afternoon eighty-five percent of the time it’s like no big deal folks i mean you’ll see we had snow a few days ago you might see some snow in the background a little bit of white you know usually by the afternoon the the asphalt the the the roads get warm enough that all the snow’s off the roads and you’ll be on the grass and the bacon lunch you’ll see a little snow no now he’s getting scientific with your ass you know a little snow spice a little snow it’s kind of like having a little gray on the side of here well i don’t have that they tell me i’m distinguished now because mine is minus faith i don’t know any more than i used to i look like that so yeah what we’re saying is folks don’t let those teen temperatures freak you out it is a non-event event 100 non-event where can they find you you can find me at prescottpicklelady.com or we sell prescott.com for our listeners out there people looking to sell homes in the prescott area and there’s always the prescott lady hotline you know what 713-302-1964 introduced ourselves i am diane bro by the way this is randall bro it did that at the beginning yeah maybe i don’t think so it’s hard to edit these things people it’s hard to edit these things it is with the pickle lady she’s not always working on this i’m not i’ve got a lot going on a lot a lot up there houses i’m thinking about people coming in showing that house that’s what i’m thinking as we’re recording she does it never shuts off folks it never shuts off it’s always going to work that’s not very nice there it is that’s not nice all right cheers all right cheers have a great day and we’ll see you next time bye
Who would ever have thought that the Pickle Lady might be unsafe for family viewing and that our videos might undermine the morals of potential home buyers? Well, truth is often stranger than fiction. In this episode we explain why the morals police put the Pickle Lady on the naughty list and how we got her back on the straight and narrow.
hello hello hello what’s shaking out there not too much this morning out here in the back deck beautiful day yes the day after valentine’s day after valentine’s that’s why i’m wearing my red happy valentine’s the day after i’m wearing my valentine underwear yes red underwear no i don’t have problems i hope but happy valentine’s day i hope not [Laughter] we got so we’re sporting some some new mugs a new swag yeah this is uh pickle pickle lady brigade i’m kind of in the middle there’s randall yeah here we are we have to start using mugs yes yes and it’s all because of facebook and google and online people like that so there are rules that you have to follow and apparently you cannot advertise and drink wine well you can you can yes but we fall under special rules so let me explain how that works okay because we are real estate we cannot discriminate by age which means our ads have to go to people as young as 18 years old that’s right 18 year old people are lining up to buy high-end homes in prescott every time we all know that we all know that it’s a well-known hidden factor well-known hidden facts so uh anyway we have to advertise to people who are 18 years old uh funny thing about people who are 18 years old even if they’re buying a home in prescott they’re not old enough to drink correct so you can’t show them ads that have drinking in it absolutely and and you know that’s the law we get it yes we always want to follow the law we do not promote drinking to any 18 year 18 19 20 year olds yes who are happen to be in the market for million-dollar homes we would never want to promote drinking amongst that amongst that group very specific yes niche yes of home buyers yes so instead because we know they’re all like make this stuff up there and we know that yes there’s so many of those apologies yes you young buyers out there at 18 19 20 who are not allowed to legally drink yet yes if we in any way promoted drinking to you right if you’re 18 years old and you’re looking to buy a home in prescott you probably don’t need a drink you don’t need a drink so anyway we had to take down all of the references to wine on our website so that is why you may have noticed a a change in spelling yes now it’s the wine down the wind down because we are not in the business of promoting underage drinking no no so instead what we will do now is have our nice coffee yes our coffee where we will only drink coffee and or tea yes in these mugs yes we don’t want to promote drinking so we will promote drinking caffeinated drinks yes no i don’t know i did you your kids at 18 years old you shouldn’t we shouldn’t be telling you about caffeine because it’s going to keep you up at night before you drink coffee talk to your mama and ask her if it’s okay and if you do it early enough in the day so you can go to sleep by seven then maybe mommy will you’ll be okay but yeah so we got these new spiffy mugs yes to replace our former you know wine yeah whatever so we’re going to have to take these into restaurants you know but actually i think they’re kind of cool they’re kind of cool kind of cool swag yeah we’re trying to make the best of a weird system totally represents our our um what is it not uh logo yeah so we’re proud to promote that yeah and it kind of is bringing me back to my days of raising children and we would bring our coffee yeah coffee to the games and when we sat in the sidelines and so all you moms out there who also drank your coffee uh at the kids you know activities i don’t know how my cup is is getting purple stains purple coffee in here i don’t know but you guys can all relate to that uh parents from the past and we we continue to struggle uh today i got a uh one of our ads or several of our ads were disapproved oh they were disapproved because they were not family safe the text yeah this is true the text that our friends at google were afraid was not family safe were was literally prescott piccolite they thought prescott piccolitti might have some obscene overtones is that companies like google rely on people like from india and other cultures to review their ads and evidently in india if you tell somebody his mother is a pickle lady evidently that’s an insult anyway so we’re living and learning living and learning so don’t tell don’t tell any of any people you know from india that their mothers are pickle lady because evidently that means something yeah apparently so there’s something out there we didn’t even know yeah we’re living and learning now in their defense i did appeal and they they we’re okay now so the pickle the pickle lady the prescott pickle lady is family safe again family safe we are not promoting alcohol we are just promoting drinking out of a cute coffee mug coffee tea and other beverages besides alcohol yes correct absolutely yeah right yeah so anyway uh we just wanted to explain that to you guys if you’re wondering why we are no longer the wind down why would the wind down

Things have been good here in Prescott, but people are apprehensive. After the big melt down of 2008, they are waiting for the shoe to drop. In this episode, the Pickle Lady shares some thoughts on what makes this build up different and why Prescott has plenty of reason to remain optimistic.
welcome to prescott outlook 2020 my name is randall bro that’s me in the bottom right hand corner i’m with the lovely prescott pickle lady diane hello diane hello that is me in the left hand corner yeah you got the whole left-hand side i do have the whole left-hand side i just get a corner that’s right but we’re here today to talk to you about the outlook for prescott for 2020. yeah people wondering what the year’s gonna bring and some apprehension and as we say there is fear in paradise paradise being prescott of course it is which it is yeah absolutely this is our courthouse uh still have some uh some lights up for the holidays uh this town has experienced a once per generation setback and uh people compare the the setback of 2008 to the great depression of the 30s uh really it was go it could have been a lot worse than it was but even still it was the worst financial setback uh economic sec setback that uh we have experienced purge and in a generation yeah uh and so people are fearful you know the times right hopefully so people are getting older and they want to retire yeah once you once you’ve experienced that you don’t want to experience it again absolutely not and people believe in cycles i guess there are cycles and it’s just times have been good and good for a while so they’re waiting for the shoe to drop that’s right yeah nobody knows the future but some things to share with you about why today’s hot market is different than the market of 2008. looking back on 2008 the rise in property values in that era was driven largely by loose credit 100 yeah no rules no regulations um hey you got a job making 30 000 guess what you still qualify for 700 000 house with no money down yeah i mean if you look back at the history of it it was a little out of control it was out of control everybody could get a home that truly didn’t really qualify and once they lost their job there goes the 700 000 right even before they lost their job no ability to pay but they would still uh still lend the money uh that is no longer the case after the fiasco of 2008 a lot of new rules and regulations and i could tell you i mean we deal with clients all the time though interest rates may be low but that does not mean you are going to get a loan no it doesn’t it’s very very strict even if you’ve got a huge chunk of money to put down still doesn’t matter if you don’t have proof of income yeah and a way if you’re retired and you don’t have proof of income or a way to show that i can pay this note might not happen for you yeah it’s they’ve gotten much tighter much stricter yeah um so the people who are buying all these homes they have every ability to pay right so if you qualify yeah then you are really uh a good risk so to speak absolutely it’s not like 2008 no the other bad thing about 2008 were what they bundled these mortgages into these obscure securities and i don’t remember all the terminology but basically people were investing in these mortgages by really even knowing what they were and that’s all gone they don’t have any of that tom fooler anymore the tom fooler yeah good word mortgages are straight they are straight mortgages they’re single mortgages there’s nothing complicated about them if a company or an investor or whoever is investing in a mortgage you know who it is it’s not all bundled together you can get jumbo and you can do balloon but it’s going to be a whole lot stricter for you to qualify for that and easier to understand easier to understand it’s a lot more straightforward yeah and um none of these weirdo products that can get you in something that you maybe truly can’t afford now people have got here real estate speculation people are doing some flipping there’s a little bit of that going on in prescott not very much uh people are not buying homes here to speculate uh or or doing a whole lot of investment most of the people that we see most of the people around in prescott they’re buying primary homes they’re not buying vacation homes as much as they’re just retiring and they’re buying their homes here to retire that’s what’s driving the market yeah they’re done with you know they they’ve kind of gone through that phase of life where maybe they had their their beachfront condo and then a couple of different houses throughout the united states um the curve now is people are in there you know approaching their 70s they’re like you know what it’s time to just settle down in one nice final home and they’re kind of looking for their last their last big purchase that what’s nice about that is if the economy slows down people will sell investment properties they will sell vacation homes those become extravagances they can no longer afford you know what they won’t sell their primary residence that they’re retired in they’re going to hold on to that hold on to that they will divest of everything else yeah that would be the last thing necessary but your primary home and especially once you move here you’re not going to want to you know leave your house believe me yeah i love it here yeah so uh so very solid and uh back in the 2000s a lot of overbuilding inventories were very high we’re not seeing that at all in fact inventories are quite low yeah inventory is very low yeah and we’ve got some lots of people coming in yes and we’re really trying to find some some good places for them yes um because prescott is taking off holding its value yeah and uh booming yeah so we have here three reasons to be optimistic about prescott arizona long into the future and the first one is the baby boom so uh back in 2008 10 12 years ago this is what the baby boomers look like the youngest of us were 43 not even thinking about retiring still changing diapers uh the oldest of us were 63 and just hitting the point where they were retiring so you had this big lump of people that were uh that were coming up and so that’s what it looked like and the ones at 63 were like well hell now i can’t retire yeah they were thinking about retiring when the bus they couldn’t retire which was kind of sad yeah it was very sad very hard because they’re all looking forward to the future yeah so they got delayed now here are the ages now the youngest of us are 55 that would be randall i’m actually 56 56 but i’m not in the baby boom i mean i miss that he’s he’s on the very edge you’re like a gen x or or something i don’t know what i am but you are i’m not i’m i’m not a part of the baby boom but mr brew is i’m a boomer that’s me yeah the oldest of us uh are 75 and uh as diane mentioned a lot of the 75ers they couldn’t retire when they hit 65 because of the bust so they are in the process now of retirement we get people in their 70s all the time that are coming to press get to finally to retire they’re like right i kind of regrouped i remade some of my money i lost yeah and now i can finally do this yes yes and given that prescott is always a top-ranked retirement destination and given that there’s going to be a lot of retiring going on in the next 10 years uh this is huge for us huge huge demand for prescott and it will not change nope nothing other than a nuclear disaster that just kills everybody i mean you know this is not going to change very dramatically very grim i know but here’s the thing is that you’ve still got the people 55 on that tail end who are steadily aging yeah um they’re not going to go away you’ve still got baby boomers coming up that are still actively working and getting ready to uh you know looking forward to retiring yeah absolutely and and the thing is the economics or you know the the politics nothing is going to change that you’re going to have millions of people over the next 10 years who are going to retire correct and we will be a top-ranked retirement destination well that’s good we already are and we will continue to be correct next big thing is california the big california exodus let me tell you something the california dream is now a nightmare and people are leaving in droves particularly retirement hp especially yeah they just can’t afford it anymore it’s um it’s become a problem because a lot of born and bred californians are realizing hell i had a really good nest egg yeah and i’m projecting out because you know obviously our um uh nest is starting to look like well i mean what is our standard of you people are living to be 80 now or 78 or 79 yeah and they’re looking for and they’re like i don’t think my nest egg is going to last me yeah especially if i have to go have nursing care or you know go into a nursing facility or something like that so there’s a little bit of panic because you think wow i’ve worked so hard right i built this huge nest egg i should be set for life and then they’re realizing left and right and right and left they’re getting hit with new taxes this that and the other this keeps increasing you know gas is going up and it’s kind of sad because it’s getting worse not better so it’s getting worse it’s not better correct so california has already been named the worst possible place to retire in terms of finances right uh extremely expensive and what they’re reporting more and more is a declining quality of life and i’m not going to get into all that but there’s a lot too pollution yeah there’s pollution and traffic just just to name a couple of things it’s like you don’t want to spend your time two hours just to try to go to costco yeah you know if you lived here in prescott you’d be at pasco in 15 minutes so people look at the what they call the california arbitrage which is sell my home in california come to prescott and spend half that uh on a home that’s comparable or better and pocket the rest of it you know and add that every chain goes into your retirement right build up your nest egg even more but a little something to be a little careful with that is that california is softening just a tad yeah a little bit a little bit so yeah so i was going to go to the next slide this is this is a huge we’re talking again millions and millions of people who are going to be affected by this this will not change in the for the foreseeable future this is not going to change with the possible exception of the california arbitrage we are starting to see property values in california slowing down they haven’t really in some areas that have gone down those aren’t the areas where people are really coming to prescott anyway right uh so this this trend is going to be is huge for prescott will continue to be huge and as best we can tell uh it’s not going to change i mean it’s slowing down um in that people would put their house in the market and it would sell in a week yeah and now our buyers coming in are saying it took us a little longer than a month and a half yeah you know you know maybe yeah it’s taking us a little longer so keep that in mind because things are changing yeah and if you want to get out of there quick you might want to start you know thinking about it now yeah think about it now because it’s taking a little bit longer to uh to sell in california the other thing about this is we are tiny we being prescott we are small uh so the baby boomers huge demand california huge demand we are tiny so there is little supply if you compare us to the places that uh people think about retiring to we compare extremely well uh you know phoenix and las vegas you’ve got horrible weather idaho horrible weather traffic traffic idaho is harsh winters harsh winds vegas is just 120 degrees big city four or five months of the year right and you’re right back to all that traffic uh the northwest has been a destination in the northwest is getting as expensive as california uh we’re starting to see people leave that area um for the same reason uh so people are starting to look at texas now we came from texas we love texas it was great to raise kids yeah i i don’t think the views compare oh no certainly the weather doesn’t compare uh that this is a healthier environment without mosquitoes people we’re going to do a whole wine down hardly any mosquitoes it’s amazing from us coming from the south yeah mosquitoes is that’s like the state bird of texas yeah yeah i think i’ve died and went to heaven you know people say about texas oh no state income tax that’s true but guess what huge property taxes huge yes i mean we were paying close to ten thousand we’re definitely saving money on taxes here oh yeah even though we’re paying income taxes and property taxes we’re still they’re still coming way ahead because the property taxes were astronauts yeah well that’s what i just said we were paying 10 000 and our our square footage was 2 700. yeah that’s crazy yeah that’s crazy so we compare very well and uh we are small so the supply is small and that’s not going to change you know we’ve got 50 05 000 people in prescott about that maybe a little more in prescott valley i mean if we double in size uh between the two we’re talking about 200 000 people it’s still a small town oh yeah uh so we are tiny we’re gonna in the scheme of things we will stay tiny there will be small supply in the face of all this demand so the outlook 2020 huge demand and limited supply will drive prescott real estate upward for i then foreseeable future for the next next 10 years uh it’s just these these huge demographics you just know that’s going to be the case there will be short-term fluctuations they always are but those will be swamped by the longer term upward trend it’s just a good investment here if you buy real estate here for your last home you’re going to do okay yeah you’re not going to lose your shirt um we’re holding steady yeah you’re really holding steady now press gets doing great look if this kind of thing interests you you want to keep up on real estate trends in prescott a couple of recommendations for you our home value report here are a couple of charts uh here you can see this was as of december 2019 uh year over year december to december is eight percent wow yeah eight percent and that’s prescott overall press get overwrought overall yeah there’s certain other areas other areas absolutely killing it yeah absolutely brisket lakes which is a great development here is even higher yeah you can see on our first kit is eight percent yeah wow uh the uh this is our pending ratio shows you uh how balanced the market is for the different price points as you can see it’s very little going on at 100s anymore in fact 200 is kind of drying up but you could see you know things are balanced uh you know it’s a very balanced market even into the 700s usually the higher the price point the more of a buyer’s market it is that’s still true for homes in the millions you know but even in the 800s it’s not an extreme market you know so this is a very strong market very balanced and yeah you can see these charts updated every month if you subscribe to our um our home market report and here’s our appraiser’s eye report uh which is kind of creeps me out a little bit yeah i think it’s kind of cool it looks like our daughter’s eye yeah maybe yeah it’s not her eye it’s somebody somebody else’s daughter’s eye i guess but uh but the point here is uh don’t trust zillow people did people watch it because it’s on the internet don’t get me started they think they uh the zillow knows all and they they really don’t uh you shouldn’t trust zillow in fact you don’t have to trust anybody you can use our appraiser i reports we generate this every month for every single subdivision in the city so you can download this look up your subdivision and see uh all the different comps that are available and how your house compares so this is a great way of keeping track of uh your own home if you’re a buyer this is gives you some idea of the spread of different prices and the different subdivisions so it’s a great report lots of good data this just happens to be cliff rose but uh it’s just one of the subdivisions that’s in this huge report um that’s the thing just always keep in mind zillow is just to give you a basic estimation it’s not fact yeah there isn’t uh appraisers going out to every listing across the united states and appraising and writing this up okay it’s an estimation and you’ve got stuff in there that’s just dead raw you got homes that show up that have been gone for years yeah you got pictures of homes that show up they show you a vacant lot i mean they screw up all the time yeah there’s a lot of a huge error uh of margin there so be careful margin of error margin of error margin of error there you go yeah zillow is uh just people zillow is really good at selling advertising to real estate agents and giving your information to
