continental ranch: Discovering Beautiful Continental Reserve in Marana - 03/06/17 02:15 PM
Discovering Beautiful Continental Reserve in Marana
If you haven't yet discovered Continental Ranch, and just west of it, Continental Reserve, under the shadow of the Tucson Mountain Range -- you might wish to take a closer look!
Located west of Interstate 10, taking either the Cortaro Exit or Twin Peaks exit will take you to a community of Contemporary and Santa Fe Styled homes.  Some of the neighborhoods have the added privacy of being gated, and all enjoy scenic vistas of nearby Sombrero Peak.
The area is alive with outdoor possibilities...hiking, biking, birdwatching, or just enjoying a sunset stroll.  Minutes from the Theater, shopping, … (1 comments)

continental ranch: Gorgeous, Move In Ready Continental Reserve Home - 03/01/17 12:59 PM
I went on the Tucson Area Realtor Tour a few weeks back, and one of the agents presenting a listing had a very cute monologue, and one so many of us can identify with.
She said something along the lines of, "Do you know when you have one of those clients wanting to list their home and ask what needs to be done, and you say...well it could use fresh paint...and they paint it?
You mention the carpet is really worn, and they replace it?
You notice the backyard needs some landscaping help and they re-do it?
Then she said, "Yeah, neither do I".  
We … (6 comments)

continental ranch: Continental Ranch: Selling Your Home? Buying a Home? Move FAST! - 08/29/16 12:24 AM
Continental Ranch, the master-planned community along 1-10, 20 minutes north of Downtown Tucson, is also home to the Active Adult Neighborhood of Sunflower and mostly gated neighborhoods of Continental Reserve.  Close to amenities and transportation -- the area is a real estate hotspot.
Inventory is down - 38% from a year ago - and yet demand is high.  For sellers with an average home in move-in condition - this means quick sales.  There were 24 closings this past July, and currently there are only 26 homes on the market!  You can get the idea!
Months of inventory - meaning how long it will … (0 comments)

continental ranch: Market News in NW Tucson, AZ Neighborhoods - 02/10/16 05:00 AM
Market News in NW Tucson, AZ Neighborhoods
It's important when viewing, to avoid skewing!  What do I mean by that?  Well, a true picture of the real estate market statistics tends to be in continuing trends, not so much month to month.  For instance, total sales volume in our Tucson AZ area decreased almost 21% from December to January -- but is still up over 33% from a year ago.
You may have read some of the news regarding inventory.  We need listings.  The buyers are out there!  Interest rates are still low!  It's still early in the election year and folks aren't yet allowing … (1 comments)

continental ranch: I'm a Yes Person - Are You? - 01/30/16 07:19 AM
I'm a Yes Person - Are You?
Long Realty had their annual appreciation awards this past week, and I was the recipient of a "surprise" award that really touched me. It seems I am a yes person. Ha ha you say, and so did I initially, but as my manager spoke I found my eyes getting pretty teary.
He told others that when he called this person[me] to ask for help, consistently the first response he heard was "Yes", not, "What is it?".
When I was asked to be on agent panels, I said, "Yes"
When I was asked to mentor fellow agents, … (7 comments)

Starting My Morning the ActiveRain Way!
Why is it my cats are most cuddliest when I'm trying to get the most done?
I just learned this morning that you cannot remove images from your "responsive file manager" or they disappear from your blog posts.  Hope something more efficient is developed soon regarading photo storage. 
Cute as I think this photo is...I don't need it archived, saved, or sitting around as yet another file to wade through when making an Active Rain Post.
AHA!  I found that the photos uploaded to Google through my phone backup have an image location and can be used easily.
