Optima Camelview Market Update

If you're interested in the Optima Camelview condos real estate market, this is certainly a quick video that you should watch. Scottsdale Realtor Geoff Lilienfeld explores the Optima Camelview real estate market including condos presently on the market in Optima Camelview, as well as those recently sold.

 

For those that prefer to read the market update we have included the transcript below:

Today we're going to take a look at the market trends for the Optima Camelview Village in Old Town Scottsdale. Many people are familiar with the Optima. The Optima is a 700 unit condo complex located just off of North Scottsdale Road, just north of Fashion Square Mall.

We're taking a look here at trends for the past three years. Going back to the first quarter of 2016, for those that don't know there was a developer lawsuit that you see occur here and really hit the Optima sales prices pretty hard at the end of 2016. If we come back here we see average price per square foot at about $390 in the beginning of 2016, and by the end of 2016 we are down to $345 per square foot, so that lawsuit that the Optima went through definitely hit it pretty hard, but once that lawsuit is settled we can see it really rebounding.

Let's talk real quick about why it is that lawsuits cause the market to drop. A lot of it is fear that you won't be able to sell the condo because once a lawsuit is actually in litigation it's very hard to write loans against that condo. They're no longer warranted, and they pretty much cannot be borrowed against through conventional financing. In the Optima's case it never actually entered litigation, is my understanding. It was settled beforehand. I am not an expert on this litigation, but that's my understanding from hearsay at least.

We see that it definitely rebounded quite a bit once that was settled, and as we get into Q3 of 2017 it's up to $405 a foot, so actually higher than what we saw a year and a half earlier. Unfortunately, we've started to see prices continue to actually drop since that point in time bringing us to today where thus far for Q2 of 2018 the average price per square foot is actually down to $369 at the Optima Camelview, which is significantly lower from that $405 price point. That's almost a 10% fall, so we have seen prices go down.

In terms of the number of sales, the fact that 25 units have sold, and we've just barely began the second quarter, definitely says that we should expect to see a decent number of condos exchanging hands this year, even though yes, the spring is notoriously high season, especially for the Optima. The fact that we've already seen 25 units close would lead us in the direction to believe that inventory will be turning over and exchanging hands this year. Hopefully for everyone that owns units at the Optima, we will see this continue to change and go back to rising a little bit instead of dropping.

Now lets compare this to the rest of 85251. You'll see that 85251, this is the main Old Town Scottsdale zip code, has certainly been on the rise over the last few years. If you look at the two of those it does not bode well for the Optima. Again, hopefully this changes, and that's all homes including single family, and if we look specifically at our townhouses and condos, again in Old Town Scottsdale, we still see a very similar trend to what we just saw for the single family. Overall I'd say bad news for Optima Camelview Village prices at this exact time, but that doesn't mean that they won't rebound. We have seen that Optima can be somewhat of a volatile market in the past, so we will be looking for that to change.

If you have any questions about the Optima, please reach out. My wife, Andrea Lilienfeld, is the best person to contact. Her email is andrea@kay-grant.com and her number is 480-387-3990

Scottsdale Waterfront “Reflection Rising” Art Sculpture in Old Town

This large-scale rainbow sculpture takes air like a kite, and when winds rush, thousands of nylon streamers flow above the Scottsdale Waterfront and Arizona Canal, making it a stunning sight to see for residents and visitors to stop by and get a closer look! This latest project is commissioned by Scottsdale Public Art and designed by Los Angeles-based artist Patrick Shearn and Poetic Kinetics, whose art has been shown around the world and at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, giving Scottsdale the great honor to host his artwork and a stunning display for Old Town Scottsdale residents.

Shearn was inspired in creating this artwork display by the physical movements that happen throughout natures daily cycles. “I was moved by the schools of fish underwater and how they move in concert, and I was very moved by wind blowing through fields of wheat…and by the murmuring of birds, the clouds of starling that flock together and you see these amazing patterns happening in the sky,” Shearn says.

After a week of installation, assembled by many invisible wires back in November, “Reflection Rising” has been a sight to see, displaying a colorful rippling sculpture for Scottsdale Waterfront residents and visitors to enjoy. The art display will be up until March 3rd, so stop by and check it out!

Are you considering living in Old Town Scottsdale? The Scottsdale Waterfront is the perfect place for the one who wants to be in the middle of it all! The Scottsdale Waterfront consists of two 13-story luxury condominium buildings located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale and gives residents easy access to Fashion Square and surrounding shops and restaurants right out their front door.

Capture the Beauty of Your Home with A Professional Real Estate Photographer

Scottsdale-Condo-Photographer

As Scottsdale Real Estate Agents, it is a priority for us to make a stunning first impression when helping a client purchase or sell a home. Not only does this pertain to having excellent customer service and maintaining ever-growing relations with our clients, but this also involves keeping in mind the little yet big detail of displaying quality photos and videos, that can help decrease the time of a home listed on the market. The longer the home stays on the market, the more this can drastically affect your homes selling value. So, it is imperative to not take any shortcuts during the process and keep “quality” at the forefront of your services.

With the digital age continuously advancing, most prospects are viewing listings just from a simple click of a button, giving them instant access to homes in their price range, and high-quality images, allowing buyers to see all the home has to offer. You want to impress your clients and prospects, right? Read more to learn why it is necessary to hire a realtor and professional real estate photographer to shoot your next home.

Your Photographer is the Artist

Professional photographers know how to capture the most striking features of a home and can effectively showcase its true quality through high definition, wide-angle photography. Real estate photography has come to be one of photographer's favorite objects to shoot due to its standstill appearance and the stunning results they receive after photographing the home.  By having quality equipment and shooting from right angles with ample lighting, the photographer can highlight the best features of your home.

Scottsdale-Condo-Photographer

Set Your Photographer Up for Success

As the realtor, be sure to prep the home before the photographer arrives, and check that the home is spotless and upright. Turn all lights on, turn all fans off, be sure to only have one or no items placed on counters, and adjust the blinds and curtains when needed to ensure the photos aren't too bright or too dark. When behind the lens, the photographers will know what needs adjusting, such as lighting and set up, to guarantee they are taking photos that will offer jaw-dropping results!

Communicate with Your Photographer

Guide the photographer and communicate all features of the home you want to emphasize and capture. For the most part, your photographer will capture EVERYTHING, but be sure to capture areas such as all bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, etc. Don’t forget outdoor features and any nearby parks. If you are listing a condo, ask the photographer to capture community amenities such as the property, pool, gym, tennis court, outdoor grills, landscape, along with how to enter/exit the community.

Once you receive the final images, select and display the photographs that will entice potential new home buyers to visualize themselves living in that home and images that showcases the beauty of your client’s home!

Furthermore, by putting your trust in hiring a realtor and professional real estate photographer, you can assure that your homes finest assets, along with the less-than-stellar nooks and crannies of the home will be made to appear stunning and beautiful!

If you’re interested in selling your condo or home and want to display the wonderful qualities of your home, please contact Andrea Lilienfeld at 480-387-3990 or learn more about how we can help you with your real estate needs at www.kay-grant.com.

Below is the transcript of the video tour.

Hi, I'm Andrea Lilienfeld with the Kay-Grant Group, and today we're back at Sunrise Condominiums where we're going to tour one of our featured two bedroom, one bathroom, 934 square foot condos. As you can see, this featured condo is going to be a ground floor, corner unit right on the Continental Golf Course.

So here we are on the oversized, wrap around patio overlooking the Continental Golf Course. As you can see as you look around, this is truly one of the largest patios you're going to find throughout this community. This outdoor patio truly offers an outdoor living space. The owner has taken great pride in his patio with adding new outdoor carpet, as well as ample seating space to enjoy the beautiful Arizona weather.

Now that we've had a chance to explore the outdoor living space that this condo featured, let's take a minute to look around to all the upgrades that have been done throughout the interior.

Currently, I'm standing in the main living space, which you're going to see features real hardwood floors, as well as oversized new dual pane windows. The owner of this condo has replaced all flooring with these beautiful hardwood floors, all windows with new dual pane windows, as well as putting in a brand new HVAC system in 2017. This condo is truly ready for the next homeowner to make it their home sweet home.

Connected to the main seating area, you're going to find this condo's dining room space, as well as an upgraded kitchen. As you'll see behind me here, this condo has been upgraded with new cabinetry, as well as granite countertops.

As we move down the hallway, you're going to find this condo's two bedrooms and one bathroom. To my right-hand side here, is the condo's bathroom. You're going to find that it's upgraded with matching cabinetry and granite countertops to ensure there's a nice flow throughout.

At the end of the hallway, you're going to find the condo's two bedrooms. As you see here, these bedrooms are a great size. This bedroom's large enough for a queen size bed, two nightstands, dressers and even a desk, without feeling cramped or overwhelmed.

Here we are in the condo's second bedroom. As you can see by looking behind me, this bedroom is equally as large. There is plenty of space for your dresser, a queen size bed, and nightstands. And this room has a beautiful oversized window to ensure lots of great natural light.

Before ending today's tour of our featured two bedrooms, one bathroom condo for sale in Sunrise Condominium, let's take a moment to see all the amazing features this community has to offer. As we walk around the Sunrise community to view all the amenities available for residents, you can't help but notice the pride of ownership of both the individual condo owners and the overall HOA. You'll notice the lush green grass, all the well-maintained landscaping, and the beautiful mature trees providing ample shade throughout the community.

One of the many draws to the Sunrise Condominiums here in Old Town Scottsdale, is its amazing location. The community is walking distance to grocery stores, gas stations, the Giant's spring training stadium, and all of the shopping and restaurants available in Old Town Scottsdale. But not only that, if you look behind me, look at this location. The community is located right on the 18 holed Continental Golf Course, and it has amazing views of Camelback Mountain, as well as being adjacent to over 20 miles of walking and running trails here, with the greenbelt just being on the other side of the golf course.

The Sunrise Condominium community here in Old Town Scottsdale features two amazing outdoor heated pools with spa. As you look around this oversized community pool, you'll notice that the community spared no expenses when it came to their furnishings. They've done an amazing job here at ensuring that the community areas are well furnished with very high-end wicker furniture with lush colorful pads.

So here we are at the Sunrise Condominium's gym. You are sure to be impressed by the size of the workout facility here. The room we're standing in now is the strength training room that contains all the different weights.

Now we're going to go over and we're going to look at the cardio room. So here we are in the cardio room where you'll find everything from bikes, to elliptical machines, to treadmills, to a Stairmaster. And best of all, this fitness center overlooks one of the communities two pools. I don't know about you, but I could get used to working out with this sort of view. The Sunrise Condominium workout facility also features an amazing private room for workout classes, or yoga, that's available to all of its residents.

If you're looking for an Old Town condo for sale that features a ground level, golf course views, a large oversize wrap around patio, and fully upgraded within, don't look any further. This two bedroom, one bathroom condo for sale in Sunrise Condominium is sure not to last long.

LimeBikes Come To Scottsdale

LimeBike-Scottsdale

Have you been noticing bright green bicycles parked at the Optima Camelview? A new bike-share company called LimeBike has reached the sunny streets of Arizona and is making Scottsdale the first foothold to take part in this bike-share program. With 150 bikes being placed in this location, residents and visitors can conveniently access the downtown district, roam through Eldorado Park, and stop at Fashion Square, all while enjoying fresh air and scenic views of the city. 

Don’t get these confused with Grid Bikes. Grid Bikes that are seen in Phoenix, Tempe, and Mesa, have fixed docking stations that cost the city to maintain and operate the bike share network. LimeBike is eliminating that cost by offering a dockless share system that relies on GPS and offers a low-cost option for students, visitors and residents alike to move about and explore Scottsdale.

Take a spin on LimeBikes by finding a bike near you through the LimeBike app. Bikes will initially be placed near Old Town and ASU Skysong but will make their way to nearby parks, employment hubs, bus stops and other surrounding areas. If you are considering buying an Old Town Condo for sale, this is an added benefit of purchasing in the area. The LimeBike app also offers easy navigation by simply scanning the code with the app to unlock the bike. When finished, park the bike at designated areas for bike parking, or on a bike rack, and the app will provide you with a completed summary of your ride. 

If you are interested in being a part of the bike-share benefits and want to purchase a home within Scottsdale or surrounding areas, please contact Andrea Lilienfeld at 480-387-3990 or learn more about how we can help you with your real estate needs at www.kay-grant.com

Below is the transcript of video tour:

Hi, I'm Andrea Lilienfeld with the Kay-Grant Group, and today I'm excited to give you a tour of our featured two bedroom, two bathroom, condo for sale in the Optima Camelview. This 1,304 square foot condo, is one of my favorite in the entire community.

We're going to start our tour today in the kitchen, where you're going to see that the seller has done an amazing job updating the cabinets to a fresh, bright, white cabinet, with all stainless steel appliances. Directly across from the kitchen, you are going to see this two bedroom, two bathrooms, extra bonus room. You can see the owners have done a great job at partitioning this room off, using some beautiful frosted glass, that really adds a lot of class and character to the overall feel of the condo. This extra bonus room can be used for anything, from an extra seating room, to a home office, to a dining room, or even to just extra sleeping quarters, if you have several guests come to visit.

As we continue our tour of this luxury two bedroom, two bathroom, condo for sale, in the Optima Camelview, you're going to notice just how open and bright the entire condo feels. As you can see behind me, this condo features floor to ceiling windows, that open up to the oversized terrace, that overlooks the community pool. Prior to going out and taking a look at the amazing view you have from this condo's oversized terrace, let's take a moment to look at the master bedroom. Behind me, you're going to see here, this condo's master bedroom, which as you can see, is an amazing size. It's plenty large for a king size bed, dressers, and even a small seating area, if you'd like. Connected to the master bedroom, you'll find the en suite bathroom, where you'll see this bathroom features a dual sink vanity, white cabinetry, and a wonderful travertine shower.

Now that we've had a chance to see the master bedroom, let's go to the other side of the condo, and check out the second bedroom, and bathroom. As you'll see, this is a great size second bedroom. It easily fits a queen size bed and dresser, and even has a great space to include a desk, that will overlook your oversized terrace and patio. Now this is one view I can get use to working with. Directly across the hallway from the second bedroom, you'll find this condos second bathroom. As you see here, the second bathroom also features the light and bright cabinetry, as well as, travertine floors and walls, and a travertine surround with the bathtub and shower.

Now that we've had the opportunity to tour the interior of our featured two bedroom, two bathroom condo for sale, let's go check out my favorite feature of this condo. Its oversized terrace and patio, that's going to overlook the community pool. As you can see, as you look around this oversized, 575 square foot terrace, you'll notice that half the terrace is going to be covered from the sun, which makes it a great usable space all day long, while the other half is uncovered, if you'd like to lay out and get some sun. The sellers have told me one of their favorite things about this patio, is the fact that it's eastern facing. That's so important here, for your Arizona summers. As you can see right now, we are nicely shaded, making this patio very comfortable to hang out on, even though it's 3:30 in the afternoon, in the middle of the Summer. This is definitely a big plus for this condo.

Now that you've had a chance to follow-up with this two bedroom, two bathroom condo, let's take a moment to look at all the features throughout the community that cause the residents to love living at the Optima Camelview. As you can see, by looking behind me, the Optima Camelview is known for being one of the most lush luxury condo communities in old town Scottsdale. It's located directly across the street from Fashion Square Mall, giving residents access to walk, not only the mall, but over a hundred different restaurants. Here we are at one of two outdoor pools, that's available for the residents of the Optima Camelview. You'll see when you look behind me, that we have not only a full size pool and spa, but there's also plenty of lounge chairs to relax by. Every pool area also features a nice grill area, that you'll see in the evening, residents using to barbecue and get to know each other. Here we are at the second pool, that's available for the Optima Camelview residents. As you'll again see, looking behind me, this pool area also features both the full size pool, hot tub, and grilling area, as well as ample lounge area. The one thing you'll notice about this second pool is that it also features a shallow play pool, that's great for either young children, or just adults that want to just lounge in some shallow water.

So, the many things available to the residents of the Optima Camelview, certainly don't end with the two outdoor, on-site pools. As you'll see behind me, all residents have access to their very own restaurant that's located right here on-site. The restaurant has both inside seating, as well as outdoor seating, and the lunch they deliver directly to your condo in a room service type manner, or will deliver food or beverages to you at the pool, making this truly a luxury experience. Residents also have access to an on-site concierge service, that's available six days a week, to help you out with your daily needs. There's even a dry cleaner here on site, as well as other retail shops.

The Optima Camelview truly has it all, when it comes to amenities for the residents. The amenities offered to the residents at the Optima Camelview, continue indoors with a full-size indoor lap pool, an indoor basketball court, a full-size gym, and an indoor racquetball court. There's truly nothing that you would want, that the Optima doesn't offer. If you like what you've seen today, and would like to learn more about this featured two bedroom, two bathroom condo for sale in the Optima Camelview, please contact me at 480-387-3990, or send me an email at andrea@kay-grant.com.

Thanks, and have a great day.
