Arizona! Phoenix Valley! Home Buyers and Sellers! Be Warned That There ARE Fissures Throughout Valley! Be Informed!

I posted a blog a year ago about fissures "appearing in and around Maricopa and Pinal County and surrounding areas, including Queen Creek, Arizona!!!  It appears as though problems are still occurring, so buyers and sellers - please be aware.

Check out fissuresmy blog from last year in order to grab the links to the information you might need.

As a Realtor, IF we are aware of fissures in locations throughout the valley, we have a DUTY to inform our potential buyers. ABOVE ALL, BE SURE to provide a Buyer Advisory to each buyer that you represent. That document provides necessary information - including information about fissures in our state.

As a direct result of my blog of last August on Active Rain, I received a call yesterday from a woman living in Queen Creek in the community of Pecan Creek - North. She thought maybe I could “direct” her to a place she could lodge a concern or complaint about the “sink holes” appearing in her yard and that of her neighbors’ homes.

The builder, Fulton, had not remedied her problem, and customer service seemed unwilling to work with her. (FYI, fissures can just suddenly "appear," without warning!)  She told me that there were now issues with her water pipe. Her neighbor was experiencing similar problems and, in fact, cracks seemed to be causing stress on her patio.

My immediate thought was: “I was showing homes in that neighborhood last Saturday!!!”  These are definitely warnings that need to be out there for potential home buyers/sellers!

My suggestions included: writing to Builder, reviewing the information HERE!!!! - and checking out the Arizona Department of Real Estate  website as well as sharing information on Twitter and Facebook to get the word out. I also told her I would post it on my blogs so people could be on the lookout. Hopefully those Active Rainers in the Phoenix Valley will be vigilant in looking out for their buyers!
