  A FEW SIMPLE KEY FACTS1. Recent real estate surveys show that as much as 80% of today's home buyers use the internet to shop for a new home long before they contact a real estate agent. 2. Over the years newspaper sales and readership has diminished greatly. 3. If your real estate agent has relied upon the MLS, a few open houses, flyers, only a personal web page or word of mouth then your property has not and WILL NOT receive the maximum exposure it needs in order to sell it in a timely manner in this slower real estate market.4. The longer it sits on the market the more it is costing you in the form of expenses. Taxes, mortgage interest, utilities, wear and tear, and loss of possible interest income. This could result in thousands of dollars spent or wasted needlessly.5. Waiting to s...

Everything from floors to windows must be spotless. Remember to clean the oven and other major appliances. Skylights should be crystal-clear, too. Do not forget to make bathrooms shine!Kill the offensive odors. They're the first thing buyers notice, and often a permanent turnoff.Eliminate ClutterPut away small kitchen appliances and other items that are sitting on countertops and tables.Remove photographs from table-tops.Organize the closets.If there's not a reason to leave something sitting around--remove it!Outside TasksBuyers nearly always comment if gutters are full of leaves and it makes them question other maintenance issues.Store or organize items that make the yard look messy.

   Real Estate Tips for SeniorsRichard Lecinski - Long RealtyOro Valley - Tucson Arizona Finding a real estate agent who understands the unique needs of older Americans is a crucial component in having a successful real estate transaction. Life changing events such as the passing of a loved one, illness, downsizing, and/or retirement are a unique set of issues that often accompany the buying and selling of property for older Americans. Because this is an important and life changing decision, do not just pick a real estate agent out of the phone book, and/or stick with the first agent you meet - interview at least two agents. Make sure that you feel comfortable with the agent you will be working with. In the interview question the agents about their experience in handling clients dealing...

The news that Sanofi-Aventis the third largest pharmaceutical company has decided to expand in the Tucson area is good new for Tucson and Oro Valley. It also strengthens the fact that Tucson was cited as being one of only two cities named in the US as up and coming centers for technology along with Austin Texas by Fast Company Magazine.Despite the fact that they regard Tucson and especially Oro Valley as a great place to live, they picked the area because of an abundance of talent according to their spokesman. The new building will cost around $40,000,000 to build and they state that they desire that future medical innovation and research come from this center. Currently located at Innovations Park is Ventana Medical Systems, and Integrated Biomolecule Corp.This event signifies the abil...

Located in the heart of beautiful Oro Valley is the established community of Canada Hills. This community covers nearly a square mile from Lambert to Naranja, and La Canada to Cholla. Many homes in Canada Hills line the El Con Quistador golf course. A fun course to play. In The Secret About Golf Property In Tucson, I mentioned Canada Hills. When I first started in Real Estate seven years ago, nearly all my sales were in this community. I have sold several since. What makes Canada Hills such a great community?
