Should I keep/extend my Home Warranty Service?

My favorite answer – Yes, No, Maybe

Yes – a home warranty service is another insurance policy on your home. If something breaks getting it repaired/replaced for a fixed cost is a ‘good thing’ . Not having an unexpected bill for getting your garage door fixed, AC repaired, hot water heater replaced… and it is nice to know you have someone to call when something quits on you.

No – You have a new home, just built and all of the appliances are warranted from the manufacturer, the house is still covered by the builders warranty.  Everything in the home is still covered, so no need to get an additional plan.   If this is you… a good idea is to contact the AC manufacturer to see if you can extend the purchase warranty.

Maybe – Your house is not brand new, but you realize the appliances/AC is older but you are going to upgrade and remodel.  If you are looking to put in a larger AC unit than is the minimum size requirement, or upgrade your appliances, then maybe getting/renewing your home warranty isn’t the best option.

So should you get/renew/keep your home warranty service… yes, no, maybe

Westbrook Village, a lush oasis in the desert

1WestbrookVillage So many people in Arizona come from some other state.  Most of those states have a much greater annual rain levels that we do,  and so they are accustomed to greener, lusher environments.  Coming to the desert can be a bit of a shock.  With that said, there are some communities that are greener, and more lush than others.  The Active Adult community of Westbrook Village is one of those communities.2WestbrookVillage

The two 18 hole golf courses wind thru the community with green fairways coming right up to the edge of the properties.  There are 2 restaurants, 2 club houses with lots of activities and Westbrook Village is one of the few communities with  condos, patio homes and single family homes too.

3WestbrookVillageThe location is great too.  Just off the 101 Freeway in Peoria, it can’t be beat for getting to town, seeing one of the sports teams, or the airport.

So consider checking out the 55+ community of Westbrook Village!

West Valley–303 freeway opening up

Connectivity is always a concern when choosing a location for your home.  Living in a 55+ community, your not looking at how long it takes to get to work, commuting being a thing of the past.  But easy access to the city, airport, and other things going on in the greater Valley of the Sun is always a good thing.

The 303 loop section from I17 connecting down to Bell Road is opening this week!

This makes access to Trilogy at Vistancia, Sun City Grand, Sun City West, Arizona Traditions, Corta Bella and more much nicer.

Now hop on the 303 and head north for freeway access to I17.  It comes in just south of Carefree Highway, making for faster access to the north and down to the rest of the city.

a House, a Home, a Community

There are lots of ‘houses’ on the market, and until you move in and make it yours it’s not a home… But a community is something special.

A community is where people come together. It may be because of where you live, what you like to do, things you are interested in and more.

This week I experienced community in my neighborhood. One of my neighbors had a serious accident. She is currently in the neurology ward at the hospital. Her family has come to town to sit by her side while she heals; and our neighborhood has come together to take care of feeding the family. It is a simple thing, providing a meal for others; it wasn’t just one person stepping up or volunteering to help. Everyone who knows her is helping.

Finding a house is easy. Having community is something that you have to participate in to have.
