It is time for the Home Buying Holidays

Home Buying HolidaysYou don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn to shop for a home or land over the holidays in Prescott. Unlike Black Friday and Cyber Monday during the Home Buying Holidays, you have an incredible opportunity to find the home of your dreams!

As I mentioned in early October many sellers will indeed leave their property on the market over the holidays in order to capture the attention of off-season, motivated home buyers. After all off-season buyers who take time out of their busy holiday schedule and brave the cold are very motivated buyers. Are you motivated?

With generally less competition this time of year in regard to the number of people looking to buy a home during the winter versus spring buyers now is the time to capitalize on buying the home of your dreams during the home buying holidays!

Prescott Arizona has something for everyone. From long distance views north from Granite Mountain to the San Francisco Peaks to magnificent ponderosa pine-framed views with privacy amongst majestic boulders and mature trees all located in the desirable communities, Prescott offers homes and land for sale with price ranges across the pricing spectrum. With popular neighborhoods such as Hassayampa, American Ranch, and High Valley Ranch Prescott Arizona continues to be increasingly popular as a retirement and wonderful living destination.

Prescott Arizona is rich with historic heritage as well as beautiful neighborhoods to call home. Located 96 miles northwest of Phoenix in the Bradshaw Mountains and at an elevation of 5,400 feet, it is an ideal place to live. Dubbed “Everybody’s Hometown.” due to the fact that most who come to Prescott find something here that reminds them of where they grew up, “Everybody’s Hometown” seems most fitting.

Have you thanked a Veteran lately?

Veterans Day in Prescott ArizionaAs Veterans Day fast approaches I’m reminded of the sacrifice that our Veterans have made to keep us safe. With very little effort on our part and a simple handshake it really doesn’t take much effort to take a moment to thank a Vet.

Veterans Day falls on November 11th this year and if you haven’t had an opportunity to thank a Vet now is the time. By the way, did you know that the Northern Arizona Veterans’ Health Care system serves over 26,000 Veteran’s across Northern Arizona?

The annual Veteran’s Day parade will be held in downtown Prescott, Friday, November the 11th 2016. There will be a ceremony at the Courthouse Plaza at 10:30 followed by the parade at 11:00 a.m. There will be music, marching bands and motorized units all set to honor our Veterans.

This year’s parade will be Honoring Military Women, Past, Present and Future. Women started being allowed to join the military during the last two years of World War II however they have been a part of military war efforts since the Revolutionary days. As of 2015, Women make up 15% of the U.S. Military. With over 165,000 Women currently serving, we proudly thank the Women in the Prescott, Arizona area that answered the call to serve!

From all of us at the Kathleen Yamauchi Real Estate Group we would like to thank our Veterans and of course their families for such a selfless sacrifice to help keep America the home of the Free and the Brave!
