When is the last time you showed property without spending all of your time between properties in the car?Even when showing properties in the same neighborhood, the habit of jumping in the car to go down the street to the next showing is a hard habit to break sometimes (especially in the heat of a Tucson summer). I'm fortunate that my office location is located right in the heart of a resurgent Downtown, with interest in the different neighborhoods & styles of homes growing rapidly...but often I'm guilty of jumping into the car to go 5 or 6 blocks to show a property.  Habit. Tough to break sometimes.  Here's a route we took on Monday when I met a client at my office (the beginning & ending of the trip):One of the things that always lingers in my mind after taking the time to walk with a...

How would you like to look your client in the eye & tell them straight out that you saved them & their neighbors $500 Million?  Thanks to RAPAC in Tucson, you can!***(Note to reader - RAPAC is the REALTOR Arizona Political Action Committee - RPAC is the national arm of the SuperPAC)The City of Tucson has used up all of its capacity to raise money by issuing Bonds – it has reached its legal limit.  Since Tucson cannot balance its budget, City Council had the idea that they would include raising the cap on the debt they could issue in a package of sorely needed changes to the City Charter this November – which would allow them to issue up to a HALF BILLION DOLLARS in bonds (which are repaid only by those who own property in Tucson…not everyone).  Tucson Association of REALTORS got wind of...

The Tucson Modern Streetcar celebrates its 1st Anniversary of operation this weekend, with ridership that has exceeded goals - averaging over 4,000 riders per month (11% over the expectation of 3,600 monthly riders).  The Sunlink Streetcar posted 1,000,000 passenger rides about 6 weeks ahead of schedule this May.  Many new businesses and tens of millions of dollars in private investment have started transforming the corridor along the route to great fanfare, but lost in the hype & hoopla was the answer to the question:  "What effect has the streetcar had on residential real estate values?"  Nobody had performed a study on that subject!Earlier this year, the Arizona Senate Transportation Committee was taking a look at public transit infrastructure & wondering whether there had been side ...
