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.

May 4th, 2012 by Michael Oliver

To give those an idea of how fast the housing market in Tucson is moving zip codes 85757 and 85706 (both predominately first time buyer price ranges and housing inventory) literally sold 100% of the inventory they had in March. According to the Tucson Association of Realtors never before could it be found where 100% of a zip codes inventory had been sold in two months more-less one.

This again demonstrates that up to the $150k price level homes are in high demand, bidding wars are common and investor cash is flooding the market.

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.
