Tucson Housing Market Strong And Getting Stronger

July 10th, 2015 by Michael Oliver

This high end Catalina Foothills home we recently listed and sold in only 4 days! Not proof in itself that the market is strong ,but properly priced and marketed homes are finding buyers willing to pay premium prices right now in the Tucson market. This is the same in Oro Valley as well.

Market statistics came out yesterday for the Tucson housing market, (click the link to see them) the market here is very strong and it seems to be getting stronger with buyers looking to lock in low rates. Prices are not up an incredible amount YoY (3.67%) however by looking at the unit sales (YoY up 14%) and volume (YoY +18%) if these trends continue prices will have go where to go but up.

This Tucson area Foreclosure Is 2500sf For Sale At $169k And Would Rent For $1300/mo+ Turn-Key! See More Tucson Foreclosures Here

After seeing most of the investors leave the Tucson market during the second half of 2013 and stay out of the market most of 2014, the Tucson real estate market is starting to offers good values again and investors are showing up to buy them. Just today we had a institutional buyer looking to start buying homes in Tucson after seeing more opportunity in the area. I will say from about April of 2013 until the last 60 days I didn’t see many great deals in the market for investors. The market was short of inventory and prices were great for sellers.

In Gladden Farms a newer subdivision in Marana a foreclosure home is on the market for $159,900 that is over 2800sf, with 4 beds, and 2.5 bath built in 2005! The home also features a 3 car garage, large loft, big covered patio, with a large rear yard, and a wash behind the property. This home does need some work but its mostly cosmetic in nature and considering the price this home is a pretty good buy. The same home just a few years ago sold for over $350k and can now be purchased for less then half of that price! This shows just how far prices have slid in just a few short years. In this homes case it sold for $368k in 2006 at today’s price it represents a 57% price decline! With some negotiation this home maybe even purchase for under $150k showing a price decline of roughly 60%+ from the 2005-2006 real estate highs in the Tucson area.

Tucson Fix-Up Homes For Sale/ Listings- Catalina Foothills Fix Up (Fixer Upper) Property- And How To Best Flip Homes in Tucson!

"Fixer-upper in Tucson"

This fixer-upper home in the Foothills is perfect for an investor with deep cash reserves

I recently went scouting major fix-up homes in the Foothills for a client the other day. One of the homes was one of the largest fix-ups I have seen in a while. This home sits in the heart of the Catalina Foothills and I have no-idea how a home in such a high end area got into such dis-repair. (literally multi-million dollar homes are all around it) It got me to thinking of what a lot of potential buyers of “fix-up” homes or buyers who want to buy homes that need a lot of work should be looking for when trying to find a good buy and home that can be purchased under market.
