I have family in the that area, and love visiting due to the mountain views and overall sunny weather and clear skies., not to mention lack of real humidity. The temps appear to be cooler than the Phoenix area, I did encounter a dusting of snow there one February., but again, dusting. Best wishes on the move.... more

Firefox, you are correct most newer subdivision do not allow RV parking or storage on the homesite, only temp parking and this may be a bit distant from your residence (like at the common parking area around park/pool facilities of the subdiv). You will need to look for a home without an HOA and on big lots, half acre or more, generally these are going to be 20-25 yr old homes or older. Such as Casas Adobes areas come to mind for NW Tucson or an unincorporated area outside the city limits. Work with a professional REALTOR who can guide you (there is not cost to you for a REALTOR as your buyer's representive). This would be most prudent in meeting your specific needs and criteria so that you can continue to enjoy your lifestyle. Let me know if you have add'l questions. Sue 520-94-0500... more
Depends on the markets, are we assuming within the same city? A lot of buyers/sellers will lament about how much their property was worth in like 2005 or 2006. However, had they sold, they would have bought another house, possibly more expensive and be even more upside down. Those that sold and left the state or had the foresight to sell and rent, did "well".
If you want to move or have a need, I recommend you speak with local Realtor(s) in each location to get a feel for what you could sell your current house and what to expect in your price range as a buyer.
Let me give you a straight forward method for determining the average price per sq/ft. I looked up the data of all closed listings in Rancho Sahuarita for the past three months. This information is available on www.tarmls.com.
1. Take the sum of all closed listings. (In this case 47 units @ $6,223,352)
2. Take the sum of all units sq footage. (In this case 83,539)
3. Divide (1) and (2): $6,223,352 / 83,539 = $74.49 avg sq/ft @ 47 units sold
For an "estimated" value of the home you are looking at just multiply the average of $74.49 * (your homes sq/ft). That would give you a ball park range.
Rancho Sahuarita is a great community. Regardless of declining value, this community would be considered a "best buy" considering the condition real estate is in. I personally live, work, and raise my family here. Its also ranked in the top 10 for communities nationwide through several well respected sources.
