tucson homes: THEY SAY IT'S A DRY HEAT! - 06/20/13 09:21 AM
 
Well, at least at this time of year, they’re right. Right now it’s 1040 here in sunny Tucson.
The humidity is…2% 
The dew point is…00 
Can’t get much dryer than that.
Bright sun, no clouds. Admittedly it feels a smidge like the inside of an oven, not that I’ve ever been inside an oven. Except my car in the summer.
But, no floods, no torrential rains, no snow, no sleet, no iced windshields, no tornados and no hurricanes.
Yep, I’ll take our heat!

tucson homes: A Great Day For Tucson, and I Don't Mean The Royal Wedding - 04/28/11 07:24 PM
World wide eyes will be on the Royal Wedding later today. I'll maybe tune in for a brief moment.
However a lot of "eyes" from Tucson will be glued to the TV coverage of the launch of the Shuttle Endeavor, as the Commander of the shuttle is Mark Kelly, husband of our beloved Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Gabby's doctors cleared her to go to the launch to see her husband off. She was well enough to travel! That's a BIG Deal for a lot of us here in Tucson, AZ.
We caught a fleeting glimpse of her yesterday walking up the stairs, … (4 comments)

tucson homes: Numbers Don't Lie - 04/20/11 06:05 PM
 
 
Loreena Yeo writes a well thought out blog post here. The numbers really DON’T Lie. A listing agent, and there are all sorts, really would be well advised to take what Loreena Yeo says here.
I would cringe if I ever heard “Let's just put the house on the market and see what happens.” Of course as a PURE Buyer's Only Agent, I'll NEVER hear that, but all the other agents will.
She tells you what’s going to happen, and that is predictable and very true. If you as an agent feel confident in your numbers, walk away if … (5 comments)

tucson homes: Zenyatta just named 2010 Horse Of The Year...Tucson Real Estate - 01/17/11 05:43 PM
Zenyatta just named 2010 Horse Of The Year
Zenyatta was sired by Street Cry, who also sired in the same crop 2007 Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense. Really great bloodlines.
Yes, I know, she's a horse, not a house. If she was a house, she'd be worth about $7,304,580, which are her lifetime winnings. Not to mention her intangible value as a broodmare!
 Her career record was 20 starts, 19 wins and one fast closing 2nd, by a long nose, of going 20-0.
This will not come as a big shock to people that really know me, but I think she … (2 comments)

tucson homes: Positive changes announced in the HAFA program… - 01/07/11 05:43 PM
Positive changes announced in the HAFA program…
Is this true? If so, great news, possibly some help in solving the nightmare that is a Short Sale.
The HAFA program has been a mixed bag, but last week the Treasury Dept. changed the rules to make short sales easier.
Here are the primary changes to HAFA or so i have heard.
- Those seeking a short sale must get an answer within 30 days
- Servicers are no longer required to verify a borrower's financial information
- Servicers are no longer required to determine if the debt-to-income exceeds 31%
- Second lien … (5 comments)

tucson homes: TUCSON REAL ESTATE ... A Day Like Today Is Why We Love It Here! - 10/28/10 10:22 AM
TUCSON REAL ESTATE ... A Day Like Today Is Why We Love It Here!
OK, we like it here for all sorts of reasons. The beautiful Sonoran Desert, the scenic 5 mountain ranges around our fair city. The fact that in the dead of winter elsewhere, we can either play golf in shorts and a golf shirt, or (sometimes) drive an hour North of town, and be at the Mt. Lemmon ski lift, with snow on the ground.
But I digress...today while other parts of the country are either cold, rainy or maybe snowy, we're at 87 degrees Fahrenheit with 13% … (0 comments)

TUCSON REAL ESTATE... Likes 60 Minutes (CBS) this Sunday October 31st, the story about Zenyatta and her jockey Mike Smith.
Host Bob Simon speaks with jockey Mike Smith about riding Zenyatta, the 6 year old race mare, who might possibly be the best female race horse of all time.
She's currently at 19 wins, no losses in her career. Next up Zenyatta will defend her 2009 Breeders Cup Classic win against most of the top male horses in training right now.
If she wins she will make racing history and might possibly be considered the best horse, male or female, of … (0 comments)
