In general terms, in Tucson if a property is less than $100K, yes it most likely will be considered a "fix up" home.
Best of luck in your search.

Do you mean does it need fix up, or has an investor fixed it up to sell at a profit?
A fix up is in the eye of the beholder. Some of my buyers will tell me a house needs too much work if the carpet is stained and one of the cabinets is missing a door. I don't call that a fix up. I call that a typical $150K Central Tucson house.
There are no standards for listing agents to use to classify a house as a fix up. The agent-only remarks for this house say "Home was broken in and a pc. of carpet was cut from a bedroom". You can see that in the sideways photo with the ceiling fan on the right of the frame. The agent does not list the house as a fix up. This doesn't mean it's ready to move into, but the agent probably doesn't think it has any major problems that would prevent a buyer from getting financing, like missing air conditioner or water heater, all the kitchen cabinets gone, broken windows, leaking roof. That's what I call a fix up, but it's subjective.
By the way, this is a short sale and has been under contract since April 5. Trulia and Zillow have a lot of listings that are not for sale. If you want to see what is for sale, go to http://www.tarmls.com.

No, there are only light repairs that seem mostly cosmetic from what I can tell. This is listed as a short sale and has gone Active Capa, which means an offer has already been submitted to the seller's creditor (s). Feel free to take a look at my profile and website as I would be more than happy to assist if you are not already working with a local Realtor who can help you navigate the market and answer all your questions.
I look forward to hearing from you!
I hope this message finds you doing well. The home is not listed as a fix up, but from the pictures it looks like it could use some paint and flooring to get it updated.
The property is a short sale and already has a seller accepted offer on the property, likely still pending the seller's lender's approval.
There are other properties nearby and I would love to hear more about what you're looking for; feel free to contact if you'd like.
Best of Luck! : )
