What I've learned with cars, and I think holds true for most things, anything is only worth what someone will pay for it.

Out here I just met the guy who bought a property down the road. 10ac, with a six car garage with a bathroom...no house. Well and septic done and power box on the garage...300k! We thought the seller was crazy to ask that much.

There's an ass for every seat, it's hard to find them sometimes...

Yeah I seen the agent post on Fakebook yesterday. Looking closely at the pictures you will notice that most of the materials used are lower spectrum. Look at the showers for example. The tiles used are what you get at Home Depot for $1.25sf.

In today’s crazy market it’s probably around 100K lot, 50K grading/landscaping, 25K walls, 100K pool, 550k house/garage. Total build cost = $825K. Not sure where she’s getting the extra $425K in build costs? I’m not seeing it! Seems like a 50% spec home markup to me, lol.

That’s going to be a hard sell at that price point. It just doesn’t come off like a million dollar home! Just Saying.

Looks like some of the listings around here in the 500k range. Has built ins...layout looks really clean...not even a built in kitchen area or anything in the backyard. And a crammed in cul de sac. Mil plus? No thanks. Must be the hype. :D

I think it is way above the $500K range. I am thinking more like $750K.

There is one like it on the golf coarse with a view and they want $1.5M. It does have a golf coarse view and lake view.

The lot and the retaining wall are the 2 unknowns.

Everything else, I couldn't agree more.

Exactly......view....view....view. This has no lake or Golf Course view. If it had unobstructed lake views then the price may be a little more believable.

I want your wall guy.:D Justified or not, I'll bet that house sells for at least 90 to 95% of asking right now.

A lot in residential estates to fit that set up 200k plus then to 3000 square foot home what garage 600k plus or minus 100k pool and add another 50k for unknown. Before I pulled the trigger on my garage I was thinking of going down this road and it just cost too much. My 2 cents

I know of a lot in residential estates that's been for sale for a while with the Lake view for a little over $200k.

I have been following your garage build on Facebook and you made the right choice. It is turning out amazing.

If it is the Lot that I am thinking of you could do a split level property and probably get more than 3000 ft² out of it.

Yes, its built in Residential Estates and is a pretty awesome house, but 1.25 million with no lake view is laughable.

The agent told me that you can't build this house for what they are asking.....

Joe as a fellow loan officer don't you think we should be supporting our local realtors and not shooting them down? I'm surprised at all your comments on Facebook where she is pushing this property. Liz Miller has been agent for a very long time. I don't think she is completely out of line with her pricing, as it sold for $1,070,000 5/31/2018 over asking.

Just because it sold for a price, doesn't mean it is worth it!! I can give 2 shits about FB and all the stupid "Whipper" groups. If I have an opinion on something, then I am going to speak my mind. It is an overpriced house and she is doing her seller's a disservice by listing it that high.

Joe I'm not here to battle you I'm just saying as a loan officer you are acting unprofessional. What is it hurting you? BTW you are always the first to comment on FB and the stupid "whipper" groups LOL!!! just sayin

The quote to build our house was 1.2 million to build in havasu, not including the lot that we already owned, nor the pool. That house can be built for considerably less.
$450 a ft if I recall. This would start around $350 a sq ft to build by me if you own the lot plus the city fees, architect and engineers fees. Depending on choice can go way up from there with custom touches. If you can't afford no need to bash the realtor.

Every now and again there's a glaring reminder that the market is ripe for a correction. This is one of those reminders.
No correction, another recession ....its coming hang on to your ass-ets.....

You do realize those are privacy walls and not retaining walls right? Yeah the lot price is a swag!

These appear to just be 5’ High X 400’ long (2000sf) privacy walls. She said building costs not retail costs.

You’re probably right about the price. Theirs an ass for every seat as they say, lol.

Let's talk about lake views for a minute.

Tje lake view is the biggest crock of shit to add price to home.

Oh look honey , we can see the lake from our house , isnt that worth the fucking we just got. I bet Henry across the street wishes he could see the lake ....

Nope Henry doesnt cause Henry can afford a boat to be on the lake ...

Fuck me , lake view of havasu lake...go to a more scenic area if you want lake view

I count 7 courses at a different elevation on the backside of your "privacy wall". Hence, my referal to a retaining wall.

But you're probably right. I'm just a bread guy here on vacation
