Oro Valley, AZ Real Estate News

Sun City Vistoso is a 1000 acre active adult retirement community conveniently located northwest of Tucson, at the base of the Catalina Mountains in the Town of Oro Valley.

I have extensive experience in Northwest Tucson, including Oro Valley, Saddlebrooke, Sun City Vistoso, (two active adult communities) and Rancho Vistoso.  Dove Mountain and Marana are two communities that border Oro Valley on the west that provide excellent golf and leisure opportunities. I have assisted buyers in purchasing new built homes from DR Horton and Pulte.

As a local professional I provide my clients with an in-depth economic analysis of the Tucson area. The decision to buy or sell a home is an extremely serious one, and I feel it is my responsibility to be as serious and focused about this decision as my clients.  Whatever the circumstances surrounding your purchase, either new construction, a previously owned home, a "For Sale by Owner", or in selling your existing home, you deserve a realtor that is looking out for your best interests. As a service-minded committed professional with over 30 years experience in the public and private business setting, including facilities management, I have continued to improve my skills in problem solving and negotiating in alignment with my values of integrity and service.  Knowledge and experience ar...

5 Easy, Inexpensive Ways to Add Value and Comfort to Your Home   When the housing market is hot, it seems like just about any project is a good investment for boosting your home's value and appeal.

If you've been thinking about increasing your home's value or just making your living space more comfortable, these ideas can help you start off simple and prioritize your list. Before you start knocking out walls and renovating your roofline, consider these ways to make a difference...cost-effectively! 1. Spruce Up Your Curb Appeal Buyers often decid...

Local government, and the decisions they make, go a long way toward making a home salable.  Here's a perfect example from Oro Valley, a town near Tucson, Arizona.  This bench (banco) would make a fine addition to any million dollar home in the Sonoran Desert.  It's a bus stop!  The town fathers of Oro Valley were thinking beyond utilitarian when they okayed this project.  The high wall behind the bench shades the people waiting to catch the bus.  The water fountain provides a drink of cool water on a hot day. Think of the last bus stop you saw in your town.  Does it hold a candle to this?  I'd love to see more Active Rainers running for local office.  Who better than you to make your home town attractive to home buyers? I'm Mike in Tucson, your preferred Tucson, Arizona mortgage lender....

  Of note: Months supply of inventory is now down to 8.3 months in Tucson, from almost 13 in January 2008. Below are a few good stats.   •-          The reduction in Months of Inventory is encouraging news. Every month this statistic improves, it brings us closer to a balanced market and price stabilization. Buyers and sellers should know the market is moving in a positive direction, not negative. Lower median prices will mean more buyers will take interest.   •-          Recent price declines may be starting to be a positive influence on buyer activity. In fact, nationwide April saw an increase of 6.3% in the index of pending activity in existing home sales and many market segments inside Tucson are experiencing above average buyer activity. For instance in zip code 85747 there are cur...
