Phoenix Property Management: Getting the Right Team

With the ability of humans to make things for themselves comes the desire to keep the thing that was made, to prevent another from claiming it. This was the origin of the concept of ownership.

One of the earliest things that humans have always sought to own is land and everything it has to offer. Oh the wars that have been fought over the right to land.

Of course the early humans were not thinking of the concept of ownership, it was just about that primal human nature of trying to protect what is yours or what you feel should belong to you. Also, as far as they were concerned, possession was proof of ownership.

The softening real estate market has driven many to consider selling an as-is house. Selling as-is means taking your house and putting it on the market in whatever condition it's in.
