I do not like doom and gloom, however, reality is reality and honesty is the best policy. If September’s first 20 days of real estate sales in greater Tucson is an indication of the full month, sales will be much lower than anticipated. By August 20th there were 592 recorded sales in the MLS. Th...
Dell Urich is a parkland tree-lined courses with relatively flat fairways and big undulating greens. Located in the heart of Tucson. Sharing the complex with Randolph North Golf Course, which I already wrote about. This course has parallel fairways that are as forgiving as the sister course to t...
