Expansive views are the norm, and most of the homes have been built after 2005. The area is served by Marana School District. Here is the kitchen of one of today's open houses.

Gladden Farms Marana Community-Wide Yard Sale - May 5, 7 - 1 - 04/25/12 06:49 AM
Gladden Farms Marana Community-Wide Yard Sale - May 5, 7 - 1 Community-wide garage sales - I love 'em! My luck generally runs to finding only baby clothes when I randomly stop to peruse what looks like an active garage sale. Being that my kiddies are all grown, I like to see what little knick-knacks and odd pieces of furniture folks have instead!
Nothing better than dozens of garage sales all packed together! It's a great way to spend a sunny morning in beautiful Arizona, and you might find a bargain as well.

10 Great Things To Do When you Move Into Your New Home - 04/23/12 12:43 PM
"Move-in ready". Let's face it, there's always things to fix, details that need attention, and preventative maintenance required when buying a new home. I like how Chrissy puts it. "...start your maintenance early, ahem, that means now. Now, don't get nervous, it's not all work, work, work. Doing your home maintenance bit by bit is a great way to accomplish it all, but over time so that there's plenty of room for relaxing too. Also, preventative maintenance now, will reduce the liklihood of unwlecome (many times costly) surprises down the road." Chrissy Doremus has compiled a fantastic list of items for (2 comments)

What's In YOUR In-Box??? - 04/15/12 09:01 AM
What's In YOUR In-Box??? Email. I start my day with it. I don't know what your routine is, but to me it's easy to brew a pot of coffee, and curl up next to the computer and see if anything's happening. Today is interesting... My arrest record is online The scooter store has a power chair at little or no cost to me and I've learned the sage advice, Money=Happiness. Hmmmm... At least pushing that permanently DELETE button is even easier than taking the junk mail from my postal box to the recycling. What I wonder is, who are the (10 comments)

Investors Better Jump on Great Opportunities in Tucson, AZ - 04/04/12 09:22 PM
Investors Better Jump on Great Opportunities in Tucson, AZ So, some of my favorite investors just closed on a home flip they managed last week, and promptly wanted to "do it again". I am a fan of working with them -- they take a run-down home in a neighborhood, fix and clean and stock with appliances and make it move-in ready...at affordable prices. Seems like a win-win. Well, THEY (Market Analyzers) have been saying that Tucson is the number one market place within which to invest nowadays. Don't take my word for it...you can read about it here. So we found (3 comments)
