Hassayampa Golf Club Gets a Name Change

Hassayampa Golf Club Gets a Name Change

Exciting changes under the new ownership

Capital Canyon Club, LLC, has purchased the Hassayampa golf club.  The new owners are led by Hassayampa resident Jerry Stead and include both former members and residents of the community.  The group has pledged to build the highest quality golf club possible with an intended opening in 2015.

With a complete renovation of both the golf course and the club house, is a plan to entirely re-brand Hassayampa Golf Course with the name Capital Canyon Golf.  General Manager Jeff Raymond,  a Class A PGA Professional with 28 years of golf club operations under his belt in both Arizona and California, is on site to discuss memberships.

Since the announcement of this exciting news, sales of both existing homes and home sites have picked up and I think we can expect activity to continue to gain pace as the opening of the new club nears. There are presently ten pending homes of thirty-three on the market and five of 34 home sites pending in the Hassayampa Village on the Prescott MLS. It’s a great time to buy in the Hassayampa Village!

posted in Real Estate News by Molly Hohrein

I continue to receive questions regarding the 3.8% tax on real estate imbedded in the new Health Care Reform Bill going into effect in 2013. Misinformation has a lot of people unnecessarily concerned. The tax is not a sales transfer tax as many emails circulating the internet have suggested. Below is a quote from an article by the National Association of Realtors which will clarify exactly what this tax is.   Continue reading...
