About the Author

I'm a former real estate broker in Phoenix, Arizona, currently work for Zillow Group and am the founder of the Phoenix Real Estate Guy blog. I tend to drive too fast and scream at the University of Texas and Denver Broncos football teams. My two kids are smarter than most adults I know and my wife is simply amazing.

We always appreciate your comments! Phoenix Real Estate Guy uses two commenting systems, Facebook and LiveFyre. LiveFyre is the most robust system (and easy to use!). It allows you to login with Twitter, Facebook, Google+ LinkedIn, OpenId, LiveFyre and as a "Guest". I recommend getting a LiveFyre account, it has some great features (just click the LiveFyre button when you write your comment).


BLOG COMMENT POLICY: We respectfully ask that you use your real name (first name only is fine) and not use keywords (Why no keywords?). The only real "comment rules" are be civil -- no personal attacks -- and no advertising. (See the full comment policy here). Opinion and debate are welcome, but attack the idea, not the person.

  1. I am a  real estate agent  like you.
    I want to said that confirm that the appraiser is aware who you want to manage the report. If you are thinking to order estate which may really mean you plan to promote the appraisal with the vender. if you want to learn more you can contact <a href=””>Bothell real estate</a>

  2. Very good statistics and the photo that shows that 80% of burglaries take place through the doors and windows on the first floor. Good door and window locks are a must if you want to avoid burglary.

  3. Great article and the infographics are particularly useful in understanding the dynamics.  In real estate information like this is wonderfully useful. Thank you for sharing.

  4. These tall infographics are perfect for Pinterest’s new look. I hope you don’t mind, I’m going to pin this to a few of my boards. Thanks for the good info!
