New Yorkers! Winter is Coming! Time to Move!

Oct 16, 2017

Hey, New Yorkers! We’re in October now, and I can’t help but wonder what your weather’s like. It’s cloudy and raining for sure, but are you ready for what’s coming? Winter is on the way, and it’s probably gonna be a cold, bitter one. Think about it; all that snow shoveling and that super high heating bill. Does that make you wish there was a place you could live where there’s nothing but clear skies, gorgeous weather, and no snow? Well, there is!

Phoenix is calling your name! Did you know tons of people migrate to Arizona from the East Coast to escape the nasty winter weather? And for good reason…

Reasonable Housing Prices

Did you know the average home price is about $217,000 in Phoenix? Our homes are flying off the market because people from around the country are seeing the value of buying a house here. And someone living in New York, like you, could benefit from the move, too. Where else in the nation can you get a reasonably priced home in a major metropolis?

Also, we’ve got the cutest neighborhoods! Each part of the city has it’s own culture and vibe, which has filtered over to the houses that line the block. In downtown Phoenix, you’ll find beautiful, historical homes with large yards and towering trees. And in our fun, family-friending neighborhoods in Chandler, we’ve got new builds that are custom designed to your liking. No matter what it is you want, I’m sure you’ll find it here.

Property Taxes

Property taxes in Arizona are amongst the lowest in the nation. Now just add in our reasonable housing prices, and you’re getting a huge deal! Let me explain…

I read an article the other day stating that in New York City, the property tax rate was quite low at about .72%. Compared to the Phoenix average that lies between .85% and 1.5%, you’d think there was no reason to get excited about moving here.


However, the average prices of homes in New Rochelle, New York, and Yonkers was between $406,000 and $611,000. And if you move out of New York City, your property taxes can go up to over 2.5%, which is double the national average.

So, New Yorkers, you’re saving money all over the place if you move here.

Beautiful Scenery at Every Corner

Arizona Sunset

When I moved here, the one thing I noticed right away was the incredible sunsets! And we have them all year round, too! As the seasons change, and things cool off, I enjoy sitting on the porch with a nice, iced drink, watching the sun set behind a range of beautiful mountains. That’s something you guys just can’t see in the heart of October in the city.

I Don’t Understand Why You Haven’t Called Me Yet…

These are just a few things that came to my mind when I thought of you. As you start bundling up soon, gearing up for that heating bill (experts think that heating costs might go up by about 5% this year), I hope you’ll stop being stubborn and give this beautiful, sunny state a try. Come out for a winter vacation, bring your shorts, and see what I’ve been raving about for the last several months!

Before the fun is done, give me a call and let’s get a drink. I’ll be waiting for you!

Felecia’s Raving Fans

“Felecia was absolutely amazing! I had recently relocated to the area and knew nothing about the surrounding neighborhoods, but with her help, I was able to find my dream home in a dream neighborhood. Felecia kept me organized, and my expectations realistic. She was knowledgeable, honest, and a ton of fun to work with! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful buying/selling process.”
