Buying or selling real estate in Tucson, AZ, can be an interesting and rewarding experience. Explore with me as we work through the ups and downs of the market today.
Short sales, foreclosures, and the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit.  All these factors have led to a very exciting 2009 and have stimulated activity in the real estate market.  However, short sales and foreclosures have been a double-edged sword.  On the one hand, they have offered some great bar...
Dear Mr. Negotiator, It was a pleasure working with you recently.  I enjoyed our conversations and our exciting games of phone tag.  It was so much fun anticipating whether or not you would accept the offer that the Buyer brought to your bank.  We had such spirited conversations as I tried to exp...

There is so much uncertainty in the economic marketplace, the real estate market and in the employment sector of our economy that a lot of people are either responding in fear or are hesitant about what to do next. One woman who did not hesitate pull...
Like the rest of the country, the Tucson Real Estate market has taken its share of lumps over the last year or so.  However, we have been seeing a reduction in inventory over the past nine months, which is the first step towards a recovery.  Will we continue this trend or will national economic w...
So how's the market?  That seems to be everyone's favorite response when they find out I'm in real estate.  I appreciate the question because it means that people want to know from a local expert instead of relying solely on the media for information.  The market was kind of blah for the month of...
