Honestly, this varies across the Valley but nothing compares to the drastic design center options and features at Encanterra. Across the entire Phoenix area, an average buyer will spend around 15-18% in total design center options. Most builders want a second deposit for any items that exceed 20% of the base purchase price. Builders feel youâ€™re out building the neighborhood and if a buyer walks away, they will likely be stuck with a home until a buyer likes the exact features the previous buyer selected. At Encanterra, times are changing and we seeing buyers cut way back on average features as the design incentives are no longer available. What sells and what does not? Seems most buyers want an upgraded non-standard kitchen to start, lot choice at Encanterra is critical especially for buyers looking at a price range of $400,000 plus, a well thought out backyard for entertaining which usually includes built in grills, fire pits, and other features, non-standard flooring types and sizes, neutral updated color schemes, garage space, and a â€œwowâ€ factor. Items that may turn off a buyer include over grown and over planted landscape, cluttered homes and garages, too many basic features throughout, dark and dated color schemes, bathrooms with no updates including all cultured marble vanities and showers, and less than amazing appliances.

The Price is Right
There are many important variables when getting ready to list your home. But one of the most critical things to consider is price and pricing it right the first time. Inside the gates of Encanterra, the resale market has entered more of a neutral state. As of today, we have 52 resale homes and that number continues to grow. Homes are sitting on the market much longer than last year. When a home is not priced properly, it will sit for awhile and become stale. Potential buyers might be thinking, “There must be something wrong with this home since it’s been on the market 200+ days?” When the market shifts like this, it gets harder to sell. A good agent can take your home to the next level in terms of staging, getting it market ready and selling it in the least amount time. Our team is all about the little details and it shows in all of our listings. Ben Leeson, owner and Realtor at Shea Preferred Realty Group was recently featured to the show Real Estate Pros. He sat down and shared some of our teams strategies on what we do differently. Whether you live inside or outside the gates of Encanterra, and you have been thinking of selling, reach out to our team and hear about what we can do for you.
