I am asked all the time by buyers, especially first time home buyers, what do I need to do?

At graduation, you will be a smart, savvy, and well prepared Home Buyer. Home Loan The first step is to talk to a lender. Without knowing what price you may qualify for, you may be wasting your time.

The secret about solar homes isn't really a secret in Tucson. Solar homes have been in Tucson, Arizona for some years now. The most prominent communities are Civano and Armory Del Sol. Both are products of forward thinking by a gentleman named John Wesley Miller. A very private man who sees the advantages of an abundant source of energy. One of John's designs in Armory Del Sol is nearly self sufficient for solar electrical energy.Ten years ago while attending the University of Phoenix my study group wrote a business plan based on futuristic emerging industry. An existing company called Global Solar Energy was our model. Global Solar Energy, Inc.  is a live vibrant company today. I remember that the panels were almost indestructible. Global Solar Energy was on the cutting edge of technol...

    Ever since the housing craze of 2005 there was a growing consensus that the US was going to experience a housing “crash” across the nation that would weaken, if not cripple, our economy. Fortunately it looks like it has been more of a soft landing and for the most part it has been much softer than many experts predicted.     In the Tucson Real Estate market the results of the past few years of activity is finally becoming evident with home values growing just .01% in the first quarter of 2007, according to the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight. In a new article on CNN.com from yesterday (May 31, 2007), the National Association of Realtors cited home prices in the Tucson market declining 2.5% from one year ago.     This isn’t really a surprise; there are more than TWICE ...

For a couple of years now there has been a lot of talk about a new mall coming to Southeast Tucson near the Vail, AZ area.  Since the rumors have persisted, many have come to the logical conclusion that there may be something to this.  There is something to this rumor, but there will NOT be another Mall of America here in Tucson, AZ.  Actually, our new shopping and activites attraction will be called Passages of Tucson.  It is going to be arranged in Villages which are groupings of buildings devoted to one kind of product or idea.  For example, there will be a village that is devoted to Health and Wellness.  They will have some traditional doctors as well as holistic medicine available.  There will also be a village devoted to residential living and one for office space.  The location o...
