October 21st, 2014 by Michael Oliver

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.

Below Market NW Tucson Homes

September 16th, 2014 by Michael Oliver

In today’s slightly buyer’s market more homes that are very reasonable deals are showing up. They mostly seem to originate in the foreclosure market as foreclosures, the banks overprice by 25% or more. Then the most probable buyers lose interest and the homes are continuously dropped in price until they are way lower then they would otherwise have been/ should be.

Why this happens is buyers just assume the simple idea of “If the home was such a good bargain, someone would have bought it already.” and they pass it over. Most of the time this is true, but these homes I think are the exception some by quite a ways. Here are the below market homes available on the NW Tucson market currently.

September 11th, 2014 by Michael Oliver

Tucson, AZ 85750 This home is a raw value 2819sf, with a pool for $254k but it needs updates/ other repair work.

In the Catalina Foothills market there are currently a few options for those buyers wanting under market/ raw value homes. The market in the Foothills is strong specifically under $750k right now as buyers are looking to move into and up within the high quality neighborhoods of 85718, 85750, and also parts of 85704 as well as 85749. Recently several high end foreclosures ($500k+) have found buyers quickly indicating the buyers in the market are switching to raw values vs just paying for a finished home. Earlier this summer you could always find 2-3 higher end foreclosures on the market today none exist below $400k.

This High End Home Is One Of The Best Values In The Market; Bought In 2008 For $2.25M Now $1.175M! See This List For Other Great Values In The Market!

This summer the housing market in Tucson has seen a slower response from buyers who in years past have bid prices up over 25% from the lows of early 2102. Buyers are still buying, but they are taking their time and looking for great values in the market. I expect to see this sluggishness go away soon as homes in Tucson are still very affordable specifically when financing a property. Costs of ownership are low with other areas of the country bringing in new buyers looking for; investment property, retirement homes, and second homes. Currently here are some of the best real estate deals in Tucson:

Boomerang Buyer Stats

February 19th, 2014 by Michael Oliver

Boomerang buyers are those buyers who gave up homes during the real estate crash and are now re-buying homes. Usually those homes they are buying today are of like quality and features they owned before but at significantly lower prices and payments. As time goes forward these buyers are going to push up the real estate market here in Tucson. Looking at these stats by 2017-2018 we could see a huge percentage of these buyers in the market.
