Outdoor, summer fun in beautiful Prescott, Arizona

Watson Lake in Prescott, AZPrescott, Arizona, in general, is known for its high desert altitude. One of the things that are often overlooked are the cool pines and refreshing lakes. “Everyone’s Hometown,” Prescott AZ is just 96 miles northwest of Phoenix in the Bradshaw Mountains of central Arizona.

Relax and enjoy the breath taking scenery

Summer in Prescott would not be complete without visiting the cool pines of the Prescott National Forest. The forest is located on 1.25 million acres and is divided into eight designated wilderness areas. From camping and fishing to hiking some of the hiking trails are also accessible by horseback.

Invigorating lakes

When your ready to escape the city head over to Watson Lake. Watson Lake is one of two reservoirs at the Granite Dells that offers many options for outdoor enthusiasts. If horseback riding, biking, hiking or rock-climbing suite your fancy, Watson Lake offers a beautiful sanctuary and as a bonus, it’s an excellent place to bird watch. In fact, did you know that Watson Lake is endorsed by the Audubon Society?

Next is Lynx Lake recreation area. Located just outside of Prescott, Lynx Lake is also a beautiful place to fish, hike, camp, and mountain bike. You can also experience the old west by panning for gold.

So you still think Prescott is just a high altitude desert? We also have Goldwater Lake. Goldwater is a reservoir formed by a dam south of Prescott on Bannon Creek. Don’t forget to pack your picnic basket and hiking shoes as the small fifteen-acre lake also offers a variety of outdoor activities. From fishing for largemouth bass and sunfish to horseshoes, volleyball, kayaking, and hiking you’ll forget your in Prescott, Arizona.

Prescott Realtor Kathleen Yamauchi Group Real Estate is a dynamic and creative team of highly skilled Real Estate Professionals who are also proud to call Prescott home. If you would like to learn more about what Prescott has to offer during the summer months, contact us today at (928)771-1111.

CRE recently released it’s top ten issues that will affect real estate in the coming months and into next year during the National Association of Real Estate Editors annual conference in Denver and the trends cover a vast array of issues.

Current issues affecting the real estate market

  • The technology boom which includes commercial real estate technology innovations, robots, autonomous vehicles and online retail.
     
  • General disruptions as “Boomers’ and millennials’ divergent views of where they live, work, and play increasingly impact the property markets,” the report notes.
     
  • Retail disruption. The face of retail continues to change as the physical brick, and mortar stores are facing a dilemma as shoppers continue on their journey by exclusively shopping using the virtual versus brick and mortar platform.
     
  • Infrastructure investment as the private sector is recognizing the need and long term rewards of investing in the aging and highly susceptible interior framework of which we all rely on to move goods across the nation.
     
  • Housing disparity is seen as a critical factor as “A current lack of inventory has generated a spike in home prices and, as a result, declining affordability for many home buyers, particularly those in lower-income sectors.  A critical disparity exists between housing needs and housing supply.”
     
  • The middle class threat continues as the income levels have yet to bounce back from their pre-recession highs and stagnant income growth continues to squeeze the middle class.
     
  • Healthcare in real estate has taken a surprising turn. According to the report “Building occupants are increasingly demanding that the space they inhabit be designed, constructed, and operated in ways that advance positive health outcomes.”
     
  • Immigration extends into the real estate market as we move toward more restrictive laws some housing lenders have a rising concern about future labor shortages in the home building sector.
     
  • Climate change factors into the real estate market as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released a report on the rising sea levels. According to the report. “Major cities such as Miami, New York, New Orleans, Tampa, and Boston are projected to have the most costly problems, with South Florida and most coastal areas all exposed to differing levels of sea rise risk and cost. The implications of the potential sea level rise and related flooding on real estate values is positioned to explode due to dramatic increases in the volume and accessibility of information on the consequences of sea rise.”

Although the list is long and in some cases appears alarming, according to 2017 CRE Chairman Scott Muldavin. “Despite this unsettling environment, opportunity remains embedded in every issue on the list.”
