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.

Video Of Rancho Sahuarita

January 22nd, 2009 by Michael Oliver

Here is a video of The Rancho Sahuarita Neighborhood. This is my first video and to be honest this one could have been a lot better but at least for those out of town that want to get a good idea what Rancho Sahuarita is all about this video should be beneficial. Believe it or not (those that live in Tucson know it to be true) I shot all this video in early March ( 2008) and YES PEOPLE ARE SWIMMING IN THE POOL! That’s how great the weather is here in Tucson that people actually swim 10 months a year. The splash park you see in the video (kids area with slides and very shallow pool) only operates during the summer when all the kids are out of school but during the summer this entire pool area is packed with people. Some of the other footage shows the many “satellite ” pools and parks. Those are also closed during most of the year as there is only demand for the large main pool during the non-summer months.

Tucson’s Best Value Neighborhood(s)

January 21st, 2009 by Michael Oliver

I have been trying to come up with where I think the best values are for individual neighborhoods so it made me think of doing a post since I can’t be the only one wondering. For this “value” I’m considering more then just price in effect I’m objectively looking at the overall value a neighborhood brings to the residents who live there on the whole. Since it’s not realistic or simple to configure one individual neighborhood for “Best Neighborhood Value In Tucson” I thought I would name a few dependent upon price range and what the neighborhood offers residents. I would like to get some feedback on what others think represents good value in the Tucson area so your comments will be much appreciated.

Current Foreclosure Deals In Rancho Sahuarita. Foreclosure/REO/ Bank Owned Homes For Sale In Rancho Sahuarita.

December 29th, 2008 by Michael Oliver

For those buyers currently sitting back waiting for the real estate market to come to them especially in the Rancho Sahuarita area (or Sahuarita area in general) it maybe time to step up to the plate. Take a look at some of these “finds” currently on the market awaiting a buyer. These homes are all foreclosure properties/ homes that had been repossessed by the lenders. However unlike a lot of foreclosure homes (also known as REO homes and bank owned homes/ properties.) these homes seem very clean and in very little need of repair. It would seem to me that these properties would be idea l for a buyer looking to make a purchase to step up to these. Now these three homes are all under $150,000 in price however they are very nice homes for the dollar, especially in Rancho Sahuarita. Regardless of price range, area, or type of home right now in the general Tucson area all homes are on deep discount. These homes can show just how steep that discount in specifically in Rancho Sahuarita. Take a look at these homes for sale.

Red Rock AZ Real Estate ZIP Code 85245

December 17th, 2008 by Michael Oliver

Red Rock AZ was supposed to be the next extension of the satellite cities that ring the Tucson region. If you have never ever been to Red Rock it’s essentially a blank canvass from which a new city could be easily built from. In time I am sure Red Rock will be a viable option for those that want to be north of Tucson and south of Phoenix. Established smaller towns/ cities such as Casa Grande, Marana, Oro Valley, Queen Creek, Gilbert, and Chandler all fit into this description as towns just off of I-10 and between the two large metro regions. Red Rock currently I think is still quite a ways from being a real option for Arizona residents. Presently Pulte homes is a large landholder and has plans to build out a major 10-15 year mega-development called Red Rock Village. Red Rock Village is built in the “Anthem” inspired community that Pulte discovered was a huge success in “Anthem Arizona”, that community offers residents who purchase within the Pulte master planned community access to water parks, fitness centers, large neighborhood parks, tennis, baseball, etc. Tucson’s version of this same mega community would be Rancho Sahuarita, in my opinion Rancho Sahuarita beats out Pulte’s “Anthem” by a long ways however they both have raised the bar dramatically for what a new home development can become.
