Grayhawk

Real Estate Report


In Good Taste Featuring Relish Burger Bistro at The Phoenician 480.423.2530 | ThePhoenician.com

CRAB CAKE SLIDERS WITH CHIPOTLE SLAW & AVOCADO For this recipe you will also need: Mini slider buns (Kings Hawaiian Mini Rolls work well) Approximately 20 large cocktail toothpicks 1 package grape tomatoes Chipotle Mayonnaise: 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1 Tbs. chipotle puree (blended chipotle in adobo) *combine Chipotle Slaw: 1 bag shredded green cabbage (about 5 cups) 1/2 cup chipotle mayonnaise (see recipe above) *combine; add salt & pepper to taste Avocado Puree: 1 avocado (skin and pit removed) 1 Tbs. lime juice *In a bowl, mash avocado and lime juice together with a fork Crab Sliders: 1 pound jumbo lump crab meat 1 egg 3/4 cup regular mayonnaise 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning 1 tsp. Dijon mustard 2 Tbs. chopped cilantro 1 3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs *Mix all ingredients together and portion into 2 oz. patties Procedure: In a pan, add 1 Tbs. canola oil and pan fry on medium-high heat for 3 minutes; turn over and pan fry for another 3 minutes. On bottom half of buns, spread chipotle mayonnaise thinly; place cooked crab sliders on top. Place 1 Tbs. chipotle slaw on top of each slider.

The Academy of Golf Dynamics Austin, Texas | 800.879.2008 GolfDynamics.com Ranked by Golf magazine as one of the top 25 golf schools in the country, this Jack Nicklaus designed facility offers a 3-to-1 ratio of students to teachers.

Has it been a few years (alright, maybe decades) since you went off to summer camp? Why not treat yourself to a mini-vacation at a golf academy? Whether you’re new to the links or yearning to perfect your putting once and for all, a few intensive days at a golf academy are sure to improve your game. But just what makes a golf academy better than taking lessons from your local club’s golf pro? For one, you are immersed in all that driving, chipping, and putting for several days at a time (most schools let you choose the length of your stay). At many golf academies, you will be taught by top-notch PGA and LPGA professionals who are trained to instruct novices and almost-pros alike. These teachers will create custom-made instruction based on your ability, style, and goals. Many schools also offer specific classes to improve certain aspects, such as your short game. Others offer “ladies-only” instruction and “junior academies” for younger players. Cutting-edge technology is also a key component to a good golf school. You’ll want to look for an academy that provides computer and video analysis, looking at everything from your swing, to the rotation on the ball and even your putting style. The top academies are also often found on beautiful, championship-level golf courses … and are sometimes based at some of the most exclusive and luxurious resort areas. So why not treat yourself to your own version of summer camp…all while bringing your golf game up to par. Check out these top-rated golf academies below.

Choose from two- or three-day sessions, with or without hotel accommodations. Features include one-on-one instruction taught by PGA and LPGA professionals for a nine-hole playing lesson each day.

For years car buyers have relied on a “background check” on the pre-owned vehicle they are interested in buying. We all know this as a CARFAX report. The report has become so popular with car buyers that many say “show me the CARFAX” before any final buying decision. In real estate, most states require a seller to complete some form of a seller’s disclosure statement that will provide potential buyers with information about the property’s history

and potential defects. Other than the report generated by the seller, what third-party, neutral sources of background information about a property can a real estate buyer rely upon? Is there a “background check” that can be requested for a particular property? How does a buyer obtain it? Buyers usually rely on the traditional property inspection to reveal any defects or issues with a property. But, there are several other sources of information about a property’s past that buyers may want to consider when making one of the biggest purchase decisions of their life. BuildFax.com has created a database of permit information from building departments in more than 4,000 cities and counties across the United States. BuildFax compiles a report that shows major renovations or repairs to a property, the date those were done, and the list of contractors who worked on the project. Local regulations vary on what types of work require a permit, but usually any significant remodel will require a permit. Discrepancies between information provided by the seller and information revealed on the report may raise concerns or provide the buyer

Since 2010, the Realtors Property Resource has been available to all National Association of Realtors® members. The system provides data on a range of property-specific information such as public records, tax assessment data, liens, mortgages and foreclosure information, school district statistics, zoning restrictions, flood plain maps and more. Your Realtor® can compile a custom report about a property so a buyer can make better informed decisions about that property. Past insurance claims may impact a buyer’s ability to obtain insurance on a property or, at a minimum, may impact the insurance rates the new buyer will pay. LexisNexis offers a C.L.U.E.

upon an acceptable C.L.U.E. report if they have any concerns about prior damage reported in a seller’s disclosure. Sellers who have had property damage may want to provide the report along with their seller’s disclosure – even if they are not obligated by law to do so. Buyers generally receive little to no background information on a bank or lender-owned property since the bank or mortgage company has no knowledge about the property’s past. Requesting a C.L.U.E. report can be especially valuable to the buyer in those cases. Informed real estate buyers have many other sources of information beyond the seller’s disclosure statement and home inspection that can provide a “background check” on a particular property. A Realtor® can help buyers obtain this information and can assist them in reading and interpreting the results.
