Cool Tools

Gary and Gene pride themselves on providing practical and useful information to homeowners.  Rather than tell you who our favorite carpet cleaner is, we prefer to give you real-world information and resources that will save you time, money, or bring you closer to those in our great neighborhoods.

Some of our favorite “cool homeowner tools” have their own pages – BrightNest, ePropertyWatch, Nextdoor, and the Realty Trac distressed property map.

Here are some of our other favorite tools available to property owners:

City of Scottsdale – My Neighborhood

Find real-time information on construction activity, development requests, building permits, code enforcement notices & crime activity. Simply enter an address or intersection here: https://eservices.scottsdaleaz.gov/eServices/MyNeighborhood/

AVM Report

We use a service through one of our Title Company partners that creates a valuation report similar to a “desktop appraisal.” Desktop appraisals are quick valuations relied upon by appraisers and loan underwriters.  We have access to a product, at no charge to you, to create similar valuations to help establish value, back up a list price, or assist you as a buyer on the pruchasing side.  Email us at info@MayMontemore.com and ask us for an “AVM Report” for a specific address.
