Homes for Sale in Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ

A Bloomin' Colorful Walk Through Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ
Took a nice walk through Gladden Farms this morning.  Spring is definintely in bloom!

I love the blooming trees, although if I had one, I'd want it on the edge of my property!

Lantana is EVERYWHERE in Tucson and Marana!  I like when it starts cross-pollinating and one bush is several colors!

Gladden Farms keeps their public walkways and greenbelts in good order. 

The landscapers have an un-ending job trimming, weeding, repairing, mowing...

Yard maintenance is strictly monitored by an HOA that provides many opportunities for community involvement … (1 comments)

Gladden Farms Marana Homes for Sale Hits Holiday Slump
Good news for homebuyers, not-so-heartening for those homes listed already in the Gladden Farms, Rancho Marana neighborhoods of Marana, AZ.
Sellers often get frustrated when comps and history seems to be optimistic and moving forward, and then the market hits a stall.  According to TARMLS reports here in the Tucson area...almost ALL areas slowed during November and December.  And, in all talks, classes, and reports I've read regarding 2014, everything sounds pretty optimtic for this new year.
Optimism and positive thinking are great, but I've found home-sellers still want to know what's … (0 comments)

Market Statistics: Buying or Selling Homes in San Lucas, Rancho Marana, Marana
When looking for a home in a particular area - I'm drawn to market reports.  Not necessarily graphs and charts - they look pretty but I'm not always sure what they mean. I just want to peruse some good ole' comparison shopping information.
Currently, San Lucas has 20 properties on MLS for the past quarter.  (October through December) Only three are for sale, and 12 have sold.  Obviously, folks have discovered the hidden gem of San Lucas and the incredible pricing deals for buyers available in this sub-division.

Rancho Marana subdivision is an area of newer homes about five minutes west of Tangerine and I-10.  This is a master-planned area of Marana that was hit hard by FEMA flood plain zoning a few years back, as well as the recession's effect on housing in the area.
