Tucson Moves...Is it Time to sell Your Home??

Real Estate Agent with Golden Girls with SW Desert Homes BR564219000

I was looking at my archive of real estate transactions this week, wondering what the value was of some of my early buyers' homes. I had to go in four years before someone STILL lived in their original home. I thought that was interesting. In fact, of all the transactions I did for home buyers from 2005 through 2010, only FIVE still own those home. Tucson...moves.

So, back to my project. I ran a quick scan using a Long Realty tool available on my web page that gives you three market projections of value - of course, estimate only. https://cara.longrealty.com/?p=homevaluesreport


As a reminder as to why you need a professional, the internet does NOT know what updates, additions, neighborhood environment, etc that has had an impact on home $$

Home number 1, purchased in August 2010, has an estimated value range in the $150,ooo's. Now...realize it was purchased for $41K! There's a markup!

Home number 2, purchased in September of 2010, has an approximate value of $215,000. It was purchased for $142,000.

Median Home Price Fall Tucson


I've attached a screen shot of the MID YEAR market report put out by Long Realty to help you see the visual evidence. Furthermore, currently, Median price of sold homes was $263,996 for the month of September 2020, up 15% from September 2019.

This chart can help you to approximate what YOUR home will do in today's market.


Perhaps it's time for you to make a move and capitalize on your home's value. Choose an experienced agent with the mortgage and title networking to help you navigate a simultaneous closing into your next new home. After all...Tucson moves!

Those charts definitely tell the story. Sellers market, inventory down, prices up. Now is the time for sellers to get their home on the market!

 I feel for the lady.  My mother also owns a similar piece of "land" on the outskirts of El Paso.  About the same value.  She, too, received one of those letters to purchase some years ago.  I appreciate your call - see you on Zoom Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400
