Last Friday I ran a list of homes for sale in my market and listed on the Tucson MLS. It is astounding! The number just keeps on rising. The tally was 97 and there are several other homes listed elsewhere. Our normal sales level is about 35 and our normal number of homes for sale is about 45, with 60 being off the charts in the past.
I believe everyone of the local REALTORS® is doing what they can to attract buyers, but it seems we just attract more and more sellers. I'm looking for any novel ideas out there to see if I can expand the universe of buyers into more markets. We have a graet climate - maybe the best! - and we have easy access to the Tucson airport and Tucson shopping as well as Sierra Vista and Nogales. This is not the desert. This is a grassland with mountain views in all quadrants at 5,000' MSL.
