Doodads and Doohickeys -- Winterfest 2014 in Marana, AZ There's a great public event coming up this weekend, Winterfest 2014 in Marana, AZ which will help raise awareness and funds for the Marana Community Food Bank. Part of the festivities include repeat runner, Dan Heston, who runs for 12 continuous hours (maybe a five minute break each hour) and over 60 miles.  It's really exciting and Dan crosses the final finish line at 3 pm. In addition, there will be a car show, music, food, fun, and a vendor fair. Which brings me back to the doodads and doohickeys. I was sending out a reminder email to my fellow Long Realty Agents to remember to bring their doodads if they wished to pass anything out to the public.  That got me thinking..."Where in the heck did that term come from?" After a shor...

Marana Chamber Welcomes Mama's Hawaiian Bar-b-Cue! Marana Things to Do We were pleased to welcome Mama's Hawaiian Bar-B-Cue to our Marana Chamber of Commerce recently, and celebrated with a ribbon cutting.  Talk about a versatile menu! Our menu.  Mama's menu features traditional Hawaiian Plate Lunches, Homemade desserts and a daily special with island flair. Mama's serves the full menu seven days a week. I have to say the Pineapple Upside Down Cake tasted like something a Great Fantastic Home cook made for them.  Down home flavor!  (I should know...I tried three pieces...)  Well, they were just a square inch...but, mmmmm. What's nice is, you can really eat light and healthy here.  (If you skip those three pieces of upside down cake, that is) Fish, chicken, pork, spam...a very versatile...

How To Get Top-Dollar Prices in Selling Your Gladden Farms Home Gladden Farms is a master-planned community with the bulk of its homes being built in 2004, 2005.  New construction slowed considerably during the recession, and is now picking up quite quickly in the Marana, AZ subdivision.

Holy Mutton Chops, Batman, That's A Lot of Sheep New Years Day I was taking a little field trip to check on a few rural properties in Marana, AZ.  Along Sanders Road, I am accustomed to seeing fields of Black Angus, Farmers Harvesting Cotton, a Few Hot Air Balloons and even a blimp parked on occasion at the Marana Regional Air Field. But this made my jaw drop.  Hundreds and hundreds of mama sheep with their cute little bawling babies. I guess Marana Ranchers are going to be serving up some WOOL to go with all our Pima County Cotton.

KB Homes Coming to Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ Driving around the neighborhood on New Year's Day 2014, I came across this sign in Block Nine of the master-planned community of Gladden Farms in Marana, AZ.  It sits at the corner of Gladden Farms Blvd, and School Day, where an elementary school is planned for future development. Currently, several builders have their homes within Gladden Farms.  Pulte, Richmond American, Lennar to name a few of the more prevalent, as well as Meritage across the street in Rancho Marana. Here's a PHASE map with the area shown in blue where KB Home plans to build 69 one and two story homes starting at 1718 square feet on up to just over 3000.  Don't forget to take buyer representation along on any site visit in a New Construction parcel.

Positive Outlook for 2014 Unit Sales in Gladden Farms, Marana, AZ Studying the trends of sales in the Master-planned community of Gladden Farms, I took the total number of CLOSED sales, both new construction and resale over the past five years. There are several variables to keep in mind as well. First off, inventory.  This tracks the sales for this entire time period, but cannot compare them to the actual homes for sale at the same time.  Statistically, inventory has been lower all over Tucson and Marana this past year. New Construction sales at 28 out of 137 accounted for 18% of all sales in Gladden Farms for 2013. 21 of the remaining were foreclosed upon.  32 were short sales. That left a remaining balance of non distressed resale homes at 56, or 51% of the market for the year.  This...
