If you would like, we can put you in contact with an agent in Indio that would be able to show and talk you through the market. They'll also be able to answer any other related questions you have about the area.

Please feel free to call text or email any time.

Donna -

A couple of my agents have already jumped in and responded, but if you need specific rental questions answered, I would suggest contacting our property management division at 520-458-1911 or check out or property management website where you can view available properties at as well as send in questions directly to our PM staff.

Hello George,

If you are interested in finding a home in Sierra Vista AZ and you would like to see the taxes for the homes that meet your search criteria, you can click on the link herein to the Southeast Arizona Association of Realtors website, perform your search, click on the MLS number next to your home of interest, scroll to the bottom of the page and view all the information available for that listing, to include tax year and tax amount:

Whenever you are looking for a home online, Trulia is a fantastic starting point, however, you will find more information about the homes therein by researching in Google the Association of Realtors that has your home of interest listed and accessing homes through that specific site. Most Association of Realtors nationwide have a search engine on their site that will allow you to enter your search criteria and that wil provide more information about the homes you like.

Having said this, the very best way to find the home of your dreams is to contact a Real Estate Agent.

Gotta love the government ;) They get to keep raising their costs and we don't. Government does not contribute to the economy. Without being exact, they raised property taxes over 20% in one year and only dropped them about 2% another year while prices dropped about 20%.

Prices have not gone up 2 cents in the last 2 years, unless you are in an alternate reality or you found a fixer and fixed it.

To answer your questions; building requirements often depend on the area in which you build, this is dictated by CC&R's, HOA's and zoning laws within the city and county. Lot availbility right now is the best I've seen in years. I have 20+ building sites within the city limits of Sierra Vista in subdivions like the Reserve at Canyon De Flores, La Terraza, and Casas Grande at the Ranch. These are all custom building sites, ranging from 1/2 to1acre and priced from $79,000- $112,000. The possible difficulty you may face is construction financing as most lenders are requiring 20-30% of the purchase price down. On the bright side, some builders likely have construction money already in place. For the past 3 years I've been representing Heath Contracting, LLC. If you would like to see some of our work we have 5 homes under construction. We know as a buyer there are many important issues to adderss when looking for a builder. We pride ourselves on being the best in all we do. If you have more questions please call.
Thank you Ryan Haymore (520) 266-4234,

Hi Ron,

The question about days on market has clearly been answered. The answer to your next question is that Sierra Vista, like just about everywhere else, is feeling the strain of the economy.

It's important for all of us to remember though, that this slowing in the market is only apparent because of the prior bubble in the market. When we look back at years like 2003-2004, and then skip the following boom years, you'll notice that, in just about all markets, the growth rate and sales rate are right were they would have been if the boom never happened in the first place. We would all still be content in this market, if the bubble had never inflated to begin with.

The new construction business being what it was 2-4 years ago has left all of us with many more homes on the market now than would have been the case before, and this obviously affects the number of days a home will stay on the market, and brings prices down since supply more than meets demand in most cases.

As a profession, we need to keep a positive attitude, and work with the market we have. Educate Sellers as to the value of their properties, regardless of the price they paid, and educate Buyers as to the benefits of buying in this type of market.

While it may not be worth 2¢, it is my 2¢, and I hope it helps some to remain focused on helping our clients get what they want.
