tucson real estate: Does Your Home Have Curb Appeal - 09/23/10 06:46 AM
  Does your Home have Curb Appeal?
 
First impressions make a difference, particularly when it comes to your home. Curb appeal is the visual impression that your home makes to anyone viewing it from the street. If your home has curb appeal it will stand out from the rest and usually results in more money when you decide to sell.
Curb appeal can be as complicated as building a new entryway or as easy as painting your mailbox. The following list contains some quick fixes that will have your home creating a great first impression in no time at all.

tucson real estate: What’s more important - cost or price? - 07/02/10 07:45 AM
What’s more important - cost or price?
With so many moving pieces in the housing market these days, it may get confusing to know what is more important for buyers - cost or price? Are cost and price the same? Not necessarily. For an example, think in terms of buying a car. Most buyers can’t recall the actual "price" of the car they bought, what is more important is their cost - or the actual monthly payment.

tucson real estate: Second Homes: Tucson is the right size at the right price - 08/29/09 03:09 PM
By Larry Olmsted, Special for USA TODAY
Tucson is Arizona's worst-kept second-home secret. Its population is less than a quarter of the Scottsdale/Phoenix metropolitan area, just two hours away, but to many, that's Tucson's appeal.
"Tucson is a larger version of Santa Fe, while Scottsdale is a smaller version of L.A.," Realtor Russell Long of Long Realty says. "We appeal to the well-educated, the artsy, golfers, and the athletic outdoorsy types." Home to the University of Arizona, Tucson is a college town, which offers buyers - many of whom come from the New York and Chicago areas - a dose of … (1 comments)

tucson real estate: Great Article in Forbes Ranking Pima County #3 Best Place to Retire - 05/31/09 11:26 AM
by Lauren ShermanThursday, May 21, 2009provided by
These counties offer retirees comfort and opportunity, but also financial peace of mind.
Ed Coghlan's story is the same as so many others: Over the last year, the North Hills, Calif., owner of a corporate communications firm has seen his retirement accounts dwindle from the low seven figures to the mid-six figures. While Coghlan, 59, isn't destitute, that decrease does mean that he'll have to work longer than he expected.
"I planned on retiring at 65," he says. "Now I expect to be working until my 70s."

Some see signs of life in AZ home sales
Market surges in Phoenix area; flat rate locally hints at bottom
By Josh Brodesky
Arizona Daily Star
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 05.13.2009
 
Home sales in Arizona rose by 50 percent in the first quarter of the year, the National Association of Realtors reported Tuesday.
But in Pima County home sales remained flat, and that's a good thing, several experts said.
The uptick in sales statewide has largely been fueled by foreclosures in Maricopa County that have driven down home prices there and drawn investors who are looking for bargains. So, to … (0 comments)
