Dust Free Tile Removal

Having tile removed using a dustless flooring system such as the DustRam System Equipment by Jack King means that the home will be as clean or cleaner, when the company leaves.  For example, using traditional methods of removing tile means that the homeowner might have to clean air ducts, vents, ceiling fans, electronics, walls, furniture, linens and clothing to name just a few.

Some companies do not clean up the concrete and leave a mess behind when they leave.  A sign that a ceramic tile crew is not a good company would be to check their reviews on websites such as Yelp.  Silica dust from thinset can be dangerous.  Hepa filters are made from quality materials that can prevent dust from being spread as it is being removed.

People who suffer from complications from asthma or other breathing conditions can be negatively affected from the traditional method.  Having a dust-free system means in most cases, the homeowner can actually remain in the home as it is being cleaned.  Granted, they probably will be in another room due to the noise, however the dust will be captured at the source so they will be able to breath with no problems.

Check out their BBB page for Phoenix Floor Tile Removing Services and just look at the awesome reviews they show.  The BBB is a great resource for finding companies such as Arizona Home Floors that have no customer complaints as well as great reviews.

Remember, just because a company advertises virtually dust free does not make them the best choice for flooring removal.  Check out this picture we found in regards to the average cost to remove floor tile:

December 9, 2014

This article is about how to sell a house fast in a slow market.  The recession hit hard across the United States several years ago, and when it hit, there were few cities that were not affected. Phoenix, Arizona was one city that was hard-hit during this time period. Nowadays things are looking up, but still home sales in the area are still a bit slower than usual. Does this mean that selling your home in the Phoenix area is out of the question? Not at all. The key to selling a house fast in Phoenix or a slow market is knowing the right steps that must be taken.

Selling your Home: Make it Fast

By far the easiest way to know how to sell a house fast in a slow market  like Phoenix with the market still a bit under the weather is to contact a direct buyer. Now, you’re probably wondering, where can I find someone that wants to directly buy my home? That isn’t as difficult of an answer as what you might think. There are many home buying companies that will purchase your home for cash, and in a hurry. These buyers are available to purchase properties throughout Phoenix and the surrounding areas, regardless of condition or value. You won’t need to make any repairs or worry about advertising or other hardships when you use these buyers, and you can always be sure that you get a fair price for the type of property that you are selling.

How To Sell A House Fast In A Slow Market –Benefits of a Direct Buyer

Apisgroup – The Current Phoenix Real Estate Market

Apis Group

December 27, 2014

Here at, we find that the Phoenix real estate market is experiencing some advancement.  Our site about the real estate market goes into detail about what is happening right now in Phoenix AZ.  Trulia is a good resource if you are curious about finding homes for sale, but even if you don’t use it for buying or selling a home, you can at least get a general idea what similar homes are selling for in the area in which you live.  This goes for any city, not just Phoenix.  Understanding the real estate market is key to investing, not an option in our opinion.

Whether a person desires to buy or sell, timing is of the essence.  You definitely do not want to jump into the market when prices are high, likewise, you don’t want to sell your home when prices are low.  You could check out prices on Century21 of course.  Looking for a real estate broker on Zillow is an option as well.  Always save listing before you lose your information.  It’s very easy to get side tracked when looking at prices.  Keep an excel spreadsheet open.  When looking at real estate Phoenix offers a large range of prices, in the low $100,000 – $250,000 range, but always know if you are buying a single family home or if you are picking up a larger home.

Be sure to read our other article here:

It’s very important that before buying a home, be certain that you check out as many photos of homes as you can.  Also discover the numbers of beds, number of baths, when the house was built, who was the owner, and spend a full days time in the home, if you are allowed to.  One of the things individuals can do as they look to acquire a home is to talk with local people, ask them if they have experience with how much people are paying for their home.  Prices fluxgate, so a price someone receives in January could be many thousands of times lower than if they were to purchase a home in December.


Here is another useful article:

Why the Phoenix real estate market is slow

We feel, and this is just our opinion, that 2015 might start to show a major shift in the housing market, particularly, in Arizona, but the fundamentals for change are ripe.  The Scottsdale area was hit hard in 2007-2011 but is showing signs of recovery, albeit slowly.  There is nothing wrong with spending a little bit of extra time doing research on the markets, especially in Phoenix.  You can’t go wrong, in fact, you might be better off.

Understanding Existing Home Sales – What You Need to Know Before You Sell Your Home

Last updated on: January 18, 2015

Before you even think about home selling, it’s important that you understand where the housing market is at.  If you visit the link below, you will be taken to the existing home sales page of the St. Louis Federal Reserve.
We have included a chart below to show the current status of existing home sales as of December 20, 2014

existing home sales
As you can see from our analysis, even though the market appears to be recovering, it still has not reached the same level it displayed around the 2002-2006 time period.
Notwithstanding the changes to interest rate policy due in 2015, we should still see a gradual increase in the number of existing home sales to extend through 2016. Fed policy, due to change around the 26th of January 2015, may cause a slower uptrend in existing home sales, however, the Federal Reserve has stated that they do not plan to increase interest rates very much.

Selling a Home in this Market – We Buy Houses Review

It doesn’t matter if you live in Tampa, Sedona, Detroit, Phoenix or New York City, you will see signs up that say “We Buy Houses” followed by your city.

we buy houses phoenix

Regarding how a person can sell their home, here are some ways.
Some of these tips come from this page

The video below provided great advice, it was not done by Apisgroup, but we think you will enjoy it.

  1. Search online and read reviews about your local housing market
  2. Post a video about your home online, you can do this through YouTube where it will receive better visibility.
  3. Leave your home slightly furnished. Yes, you might think it’s a good idea to take everything, but leaving behind a couch, RV etc. is sometimes a wise move.
  4. Clean your home well, checking for bugs, etc. Believe it or not, this is optional because there are several companies who will buy your home in any condition. Essentially, they will show up, give you a cash offer, and you chose the move out date. An example of one of these companies who offer the service called We Buy Houses Phoenix is located here.
  5. Just a disclaimer before we finish with our list, we at the Apis Group ask you to please note that the real estate market in Phoenix is different than the market in other major cities, so do some research first.  Also, as you probably know, we help people with home issues here at ApisGroup
  6. Find out what people in your area are paying for new and older homes. It’s a good idea to find a house that has the same SQ Ft, rooms, bathrooms and age to determine pricing.
  7. Meet with a real estate agent to discuss options. You can always find good agents here but bear in mind that real estate agents charge more for closing and other fees. It’s always good to shop around.

Hopefully this list has helped you. Keep up with the existing home sales market trends and also give the we buy houses people a chance, you might be surprised just how easy it is to sell your home.
