After looking at the title, you're probably thinking that there's some catch or that I'm crazy.  There's no catch and I'll let you be the judge of how crazy I am.  Here's the deal.  As a real estate agent, I know how difficult and time consuming selling a home can be.  In fact 80% to 90% of the do-it-yourselfers (fondly known as FSBO's in the real estate industry) end up listing with an agent.  So, to alleviate a little of your work, I am willing to allow you to advertise on my website, www.TucsonExpertAgent.com for free.Why are you doing this?  There are two reasons, really.  First, advertising on my website is a win-win situation.  You get more exposure for your property and I have more of an inventory on my website.  I already have a link to search the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) ...

Every year, Newsweek posts their best (Top 1200) high schools in America list.  Their criteria include number advanced placement students, how many students graduate and how many children take certain tests.  The top 1200 are actually the top 5% of public schools.For the last two years in a row a high school in Tucson, AZ has made the TOP 10!!  BASIS High School, a local charter school, has placed 6th in the entire nation for academic excellence.  Charter schools are considered to be public schools as they receive public funding and education is provided free of charge to students.  However, they are not part of a school district.  Tucson has many good charter schools, but BASIS is the only high school that made Newsweek's Top 1200 list.BASIS School started in 1998 as a middle school an...

I reported Who Else Wants To Know About Home Sales In Tucson? on May 11th about the available statistics at that time for homes sales in the Tucson area. Better numbers are in. Actual home sales were 1,329. Though lower than I anticipated, when compared to previous years, excluding the frenzy years, Tucson's real estate market remains strong. Tucson's MLS reported only 1,280 sales for the month. Its hard to get the numbers out when so many are late turning information in. As of May 19, 2007 the MLS search for April sales shows what I reported, 1,329.  Days On The Market (DOM) fell a few days from March. April's DOM was 65, where March was 67. Not a significant number, but, a positive number.   Read the rest of this entry »

Grand Valley Golf course lies 40 minutes north of Tucson As you pass through Eloy on your way to Phoenix or Casa Grande from Tucson you will see the Grand Valley Golf Course along the way. I have passed by this golf course hundreds of times on my travels to an from Phoenix. Curiosity settles in every time I pass by. Curiosity no more. Today my son and daughter-in-law invited me to play the Grand Valley Course with them. This is the same course I mentioned in my blog Here's A Quick Way to Help Make-A-Wish Foundation and Play Golf. Now I can enjoy the tournament having played this wonderful course.
