What is the purpose of Phoenix's zoning laws?

Real estate developments serve many important purposes in our state. The right Arizona development can provide commercial space for shopping, entertainment and more. Or, a development can provide office space for businesses to grow. Residential developments can provide a range of housing opportunities. No matter the type of development, a lot of planning goes into the creation of these developments. There are economic concerns, environmental concerns and governmental constraints to adhere to. Developers must take these considerations into account and delicately balance interests when planning a new real estate development.

Several commercial properties sell in central Arizona

Last week we touched on the complexities of a real estate sale, particularly those of a residential nature. While this is certainly important, it is just as crucial to realize that commercial property transactions can be just as complex, and many times more so. There are often many additional factors to consider when selling or buying retail space or office buildings, and the money at stake can be significantly more.

Understanding the complexities of a real estate transaction

There are multiple ways for Arizonans to purchase real estate. Typically, potential buyers work with a real estate agent to find a home and, once that is accomplished, to help them with the purchase agreement. Others, though, decide to purchase real estate directly from a homeowner without the intervention of a real estate agent. In either case, it may be best for those considering purchasing real estate to consult with an experienced attorney, as failing to do so could result in unwanted consequences and, potentially, litigation.

Arizona lawmakers seek to stop commercial development

Many Arizona residents may have heard about a new Indian casino in the early stages of development to be built in the West Valley near Glendale. The project has come under fire, with many saying the Tohono O'odham nation should not be able to build the casino resort on land that is not incorporated into the nation's reservation. Three Arizona lawmakers have now joined the fight to prevent the project from going forward. The House has already passed a bill disallowing Indian nations from building gaming establishments on unincorporated land. Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake have introduced a similar bill in the Senate.
