Okay, maybe you’re not buying home or a piece of real estate for Christmas, but you might be thinking about purchasing in the new year and if you’re looking for a seasonal home, vacation property, or just want to get out of the cold this time of year and into the sunshine, buying a home in Mesa Arizona might be easier than you think, even if you live out of state.
“My husband and I relocated to Arizona from Oregon. We were recommended to Jean by a friend. Jean is the most honest, reliable, energetic person we have ever worked with. Our hunting for a home took a while but Jean was right there with us. We would call her on the spur of the moment and tell her we found a home and she would get all the information on it and meet us at the house. She really cares about her clients. She makes sure things are on the up and up for her clients and helps get things done. She goes beyond what most realtors do for her clients. We highly recommend her.” – Sincerely Skip and Bonnie
Over the holidays is actually a great time to consider buying a home because you might have some time off, especially after the major holiday, to think about what you’re really looking for, price points, and do a little exploration online.

My specialty is helping folks either by a seasonal home, vacation home, or an active adult community. We have many 55+ communities and neighborhoods throughout Mesa Arizona. Whether you’re looking for a gated community, single-family home, low maintenance townhouse or condominium, or a second vacation property, here are some things to consider before really getting serious about buying a home.
#1. Check your budget.
Will you be selling the property and moving? Will you be taking out a loan? Will you be refinancing or using a HELOC to finance the down payment on a new property? Will you be paying in cash? Explore your financial options and see how much you can actually afford in a Mesa Arizona home. There are properties anywhere from $200,000 to over $2 million, so the skies really the limit when it comes to home prices in Mesa.
#2. Start communication with an agent.
Start interviewing agents to find one that you feel comfortable with. Of course, I would love to help you buy a home in our area, but feel free to call me at any time with specific questions, concerns, or pretty much anything Mesa real estate related.
#3. Figure out your timeline.
Are you planning on moving after the first of the year? Perhaps you’re looking at finalizing something for next winter? How quickly do you expect the process to take and what does reality look like? Understanding your own expectations can put you in a much better position.
Let’s cross off that house for Christmas and get started planning your perfect vacation home or 2nd property in or around Mesa Arizona.
