Tucson Builders Falling Behind Expect Build Times To Increase

August 11th, 2016 by Michael Oliver

Get Ready For Longer Built Times And Higher Prices In The New Home Segment Of The Tucson Market

As projected earlier this year the homebuilders in Tucson are starting to fall behind on build times across the Tucson metro region. Homes that were being built from start to finish in January 2016 in 4-5 months are now taking 7 or more months to complete.

The main reason this is happening is due to more demand for homes then workers to build them. Homebuilding in Tucson had been in a severe slump for many years until about 2015. Between last year this time and today the demand for a brand new home has almost never been higher.

Oro Valley Home We Recently Listed And Sold In 5 Days For FULL PRICE! Proof Of How Strong The Tucson Housing Market Is. Not All Homes Are Demanded Like This However. Read This Post To Understand What Is Happening In The Market.

We have been seeing an a lot of demand this year as buyers feel confident about buying Tucson area homes. Low mortgage rates and a competitive landscape seem to be speeding up the velocity of the marketplace. This has been the case for about the last 6 months in the Tucson area. Many buyers are getting beat out on the best homes and the next time they find one they like they are currently willing to step up and make really good offers out of the gate.

Current Tucson Market Update; Oro Valley/ Foothills Markets Strong

October 5th, 2015 by Michael Oliver

This New Listing Of Ours At 8851 Riviera In Oro Valley Has Had Four Showings In Four Days On The Market ! This Is An Example Of How Strong Buyer Demand Is For The More Updated Homes Currently!

The Tucson market is currently going through a shortage of quality inventory with sellers sticking to their prices to make deals.

DR Horton Offers Red Tag Event In Tucson

August 13th, 2015 by Michael Oliver

Something new that DR Horton just rolled out today is what they are calling their “Red Tag Event”. I guess since car companies do it a home builder may benefit as well. Basically what they are doing is dropping prices on their spec homes they have had in inventory for a while. In Tucson this works out to about 18 homes. While the pricing is low in most cases in others it’s no low enough as I have seen the majority of these spec homes (also called inventory homes) while showing clients property in the last month.

Condo Buying Risks- Pending Litigation Pitfall

April 13th, 2015 by Michael Oliver

"Tucson AZ condos for sale"

Condo Buying Has Risks Most Buyers/ Owners Never Realize Potential Litigation Ranks Among Them.

Many people like the idea of condo ownership specifically those looking only for seasonal property. These buyers associate condo ownership as a lock and leave situation as the home owners association takes care of all of the day to day maintenance of pool(s), gates, common grounds, roof, parking, etc. For the most part all this is true but what happens when the home owner association either doesn’t follow through or is negligent affecting other owners units?

When Selling Your Home For Top Dollar The Timing Of When It Hits The Market Matters A Lot!
