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.

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.

A.F. Sterling’s New Neighborhood/ Development The Villages at Riverwalk In The Catalina Foothills 85718

June 15th, 2010 by Michael Oliver

"A.F. Sterling Villages At Riverwalk Town home Neighborhood"

These new town homes and regular single family homes within the gated Villages At Riverwalk in the Foothills offers a premium residential development for a great price.

A.F. Sterling just opened a new development re-named “The Villages at Riverwalk” which they purchased from a lender after the Hacienda Del Sol town homes built by River Elk LLC  was foreclosed upon. The project was  originally scheduled for 140 upscale town homes of which 21 were actually developed when progress stopped as the market conditions forced the previous developer to stop all work and surrender the development to the lender. A.F. Sterling purchased the 108 remaining lots for sale from Arizona National Bank for $3.1 million which seems like an amazing price of $27,800 per lot…. For prime foothills real estate that’s an amazing price, yet probably also a good deal for the lender as finding developers ready and willing to take on previously failed real estate developments is far and few between in todays marketplace.
