I have extensive experience in Northwest Tucson, including Oro Valley, Saddlebrooke, Sun City Vistoso, (two active adult communities) and Rancho Vistoso.  Dove Mountain and Marana are two communities that border Oro Valley on the west that provide excellent golf and leisure opportunities. I have assisted buyers in purchasing new built homes from DR Horton and Pulte.

Local government, and the decisions they make, go a long way toward making a home salable.  Here's a perfect example from Oro Valley, a town near Tucson, Arizona.  This bench (banco) would make a fine addition to any million dollar home in the Sonoran Desert.  It's a bus stop!  The town fathers of Oro Valley were thinking beyond utilitarian when they okayed this project.  The high wall behind the bench shades the people waiting to catch the bus.  The water fountain provides a drink of cool water on a hot day. Think of the last bus stop you saw in your town.  Does it hold a candle to this?  I'd love to see more Active Rainers running for local office.  Who better than you to make your home town attractive to home buyers?

  Of note: Months supply of inventory is now down to 8.3 months in Tucson, from almost 13 in January 2008. Below are a few good stats.   •-          The reduction in Months of Inventory is encouraging news. Every month this statistic improves, it brings us closer to a balanced market and price stabilization. Buyers and sellers should know the market is moving in a positive direction, not negative. Lower median prices will mean more buyers will take interest.   •-          Recent price declines may be starting to be a positive influence on buyer activity. In fact, nationwide April saw an increase of 6.3% in the index of pending activity in existing home sales and many market segments inside Tucson are experiencing above average buyer activity. For instance in zip code 85747 there are cur...

Real Estate Tips For Seniors   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.

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...
