AZ Home Sale Prices Up and Inventory Down, But Actual Values May Be Lagging
A new report suggests there are too many Arizonans chasing too few affordable homes in the state. The study by the Federal Housing Finance Agency finds the price of an average home in the state that sold in the first three months of the year up by nearly 2.5 percent in the last quarter. That was good enough to far exceed the national average of just a half a percent…

Two different reports paint an improving picture of apartment distress. In the most recent quarterly report from Real Capital Analytics, the market research firm said that new instances of apartment-market distress fell to $1.5 billion in the first quarter of 2012, the lowest quarterly total since 2007.

Rise in Phoenix Housing Shows Path for Other Cities
By NICK TIMIRAOS
PHOENIX—As home prices continue to drop in most cities, a nascent real-estate rebound here holds lessons for the rest of the country.
This sprawling desert metropolis was one of the hardest hit housing markets during the bust. Phoenix home prices declined 55% from 2006 through the end of 2011, and Arizona’s foreclosure rate jumped to No. 3 in the nation in 2009. Hundreds of thousands of homeowners are underwater, meaning they owe more than their homes are worth. Click here for full Article
We’ve definitely come a long way from where we were just a few years ago and it’s very interesting to see how people have been reacting.
A few years ago no one wanted to own any real estate in Phoenix and now there is not enough to go around.
Ok, now here is how you can make a quick extra $6,000…
If you found an extra $6,000, what would you do with it??? Wouldn’t that be nice.
Maybe you could take your wife or girlfriend on a special vacation, make an extra payment on your mortgage, top up your children’s RESPs, use it as a down payment on a new car, …
Your list is probably longer than mine…
But before we share with you how you could find that extra $6,000, tell me – How did your portfolio, mutual funds or stocks do last year?
Not so good? Or… non-existent returns? My stocks got hammered…I’m thinking of cashing out and doing
something better with my investments.
Did you know?
The top 13 mutual funds based on a CNN survey got 0.25% in 2011. Your savings account is paying more…
and it’s GUARANTEED interest.
The Dow is down 8.6% from its all-time high
Nasdaq is down 41% from its all-time high
The S&P is down 15% from its all-time high
And Oil is down 29% from its all-time high
Something is severely wrong with how you can save, protect and grow your money in these tough economic
Let me show you how you can escape this financial mess.
When we first started our Woodridge fund back in June 2011, we shared with you our vision of helping fellow investors build their wealth through real estate.
The Woodridge fund was inspired by analyzing our own investment returns and realizing that nothing came close to the solid and consistent returns we got investing in real estate.
Not the stock market, not the bond market, not the FOREX market, you name it … it doesn’t come anywhere close to real estate. Especially Apartment Buildings.
Now, we’re not naïve. Real estate is great, but not easy. You need to understand what you’re buying, pay market value or less and you need to manage it well. It’s exactly like a full time business…
That’s what we’ve been doing with the Woodridge fund. Our original goal was to acquire 100 apartment units of distressed apartment buildings. We first started with a small 20-unit complex.
Soon after that, we doubled our size by purchasing a 36-unit apartment complex.
When we took over Grandview Terrace Apartments, the average rent was $500/month.
And our goal was to increase the rent to $550 on average but we have been doing such a great job, we
are exceeding our own expectations in 3 short months.
And today, we are proud and excited to announce that we are looking at doubling in size once again by acquiring a 63-unit complex. That’s 119 units in total in less than a year.
Now…how do you find an extra $6,000??? Here it is!!!
Share The Woodridge fund investment with your family, friends, co-workers and we’ll pay you a referral fee for sharing this great investment opportunity with them.
Why are we doing this??? Because for the last time, we are now accepting new investors for a very short period of time. Once we close our new acquisition of Palm Lane we will close out the fund and no one else will be able to invest in our Woodridge fund ever again.
It’s now or never.

It wasn’t easy but we charged through against stiff competition on acquiring real estate in Phoenix. As many of you know, the US apartment market is getting hot as the number of foreclosures has dropped significantly.
We were able to secure projects at a discount due to our expertise and track record. In fact, it’s amazing how much respect we get from listing brokers and sellers. Often times our offer is below our competitors yet we are invited back for the best and final bid. Our solid track records give us an
edge when we negotiate deals as people want to do business with us because they know who we are, we do what we say we are going to do and they know we are able to perform on our commitments.
What Sets Us Apart?
Low overhead cost: no expensive corner office, no private jet, no expense account for stock brokers.
We manage our own buildings: We run our own complexes. Unlike other real estate funds that contract management out to a 3rd party, we run the show, we have weekly calls, we set the marketing strategies, and we find the best contractors. No one else cares more about your investment than we do because we are also investors with our own skin in the game.
We are easy to reach, pick up the phone and you can talk any of the directors of the company.
We add value: We focus on adding value in all the projects we are involved in by updating the units, improving the tenant mix, lowering expenses, increasing occupancy rates, …
We improve communities: Wherever we invest, we improve the communities families call home. We host BBQs, back to school parties for our residents, Thanksgiving dinners, …
In turn, our tenants stay longer and refer their friends to us. In a nut shell, we create a win-win for our investors and our residents.
What does this mean to you?
It’s time for you to share our success story with your co-workers, neighbors and friends and earn a referral bonus of 6% or $6,000 on a $100,000 investment. A referral from an existing Investor is ideal, so we highly recommend you also become an investor.
