That would depend on what area of Tucson you will be working, going to school, etc. There are many great areas in Tucson to live. With gas prices as they are, you may want to live as close as possible to the area to which you will be commuting. Do you know where you will be working, or attending U of A possibly?

My advice is to visit the neighborhood at different times of the day and different days of the week. If traffic noise is a problem I would visit at rushhour (5:30 pm, Monday - Friday). Sit with your car window down or walk around and listen to the traffic noise.

If you are not currently using a Realtor, give me a call. Realtors are free for buyers.

Thanks!

Hi Alma.Ranes:

It depends.

It used to be all you needed was good credit and you could get a Stated Income or even a No Documentation loan. Those days are gone with the bursting of the real estate bubble.

Now, stable income and good credit are essential. The "It Depends" part is some people think they have horrible credit, yet can qualify (because they are so used to having fantastic credit), while others think they should qualify without good credit. Your best bet is to talk to a licensed, mortgage loan originator, have them pull your MORTGAGE credit report, and then you will know if you can get a mortgage loan.

Good luck.

On specific questions like this one you need to speak with the owners or if interested, that is what the Buyers Inspection Period (BINSR) is for, to conduct inspections.

Hi Swgal

Please contact a property management company (try Google) & can help you find what you are looking for, most of them don't charge renter. Also have heard good things about Apartment Locators (do more than just apts). Best of luck.

Talk with a local lender, it should be free and no obligiation to find out if you are or can be pre-approved for a mortgage. In today's market it should be a potential buyer's first step.

I can recommend Paul Volpe, Vice President at Nova Home Loans, 241-4048.

Best of luck.

Hello Rkadesh,

I would like to interview for the job of helping you buy investment
properties. I was a successful hydrologist when I decided to get my
real estate license in 1995 so I could buy investment properties.
Eventually I became a full time real estate agent. I currently own and
manage a four plex and four rental houses near UofA. I have used 1031
Exchanges to defer capital gains taxes. I have helped many people buy
various types of investments: parents who want to house their UofA
students, out of state buyers who plan to move here after retirement,
out of state investors who want a short term rental property where
they can also spend their vacations, and local homeowners who want to
manage their own income properties.

Foreclosures and short sale are a large part of my business. Of course
I can help you buy a foreclosure. More importantly, I will tell you
when you shouldn't buy a foreclosure. I just talked a young buyer out
of buying an REO he desperately wanted. I had to bring him back to
reality and point out what a money pit the house would be, not to
mention a health hazard for the family he and his fiancee plan to have
there. You won't find many agents who put their clients' needs ahead
of their own, but I like to have a clear conscience.

I can send you an email with information about my back ground and how I work.
I can also send you a list of my transactions. With over 285 sales behind
me, I have the experience, knowledge and integrity you want.

You can also check my blog http://www.SweetDesertHome.com to learn more about
my interests and expertise, and see some testimonials from past clients.

Best regards,

Donna Moulton

Active Capa, means the property has an accepted offer (seller accepted it) but it is waiting for 3rd party approval. Majority of the time, that means the property in question is a short sale.

You can Google what a short sale is, I have couple of blogs where I have written about the process.
I imagine you are looking at properties and see the status and wondering what it means? I recommend you find a local agent to help you with your search, they can explain all this to you, plus much more about the process. Also, a local agent can sort through the existing inventory and help you find properties that are actually available and meet your search criteria. Many free sites like Trulia or Zillow.com have listings right away, but can take months to have them updated correctly. I meet a lot of clients who are very interested in a property they see on these sites, only to find out it is actually not available anymore, that it is under contract.

Best of luck.

Hello Tony,

I honestly do not know what you are asking here, are you asking what the mortgage payments would be? I believe you are asking about the property for sale at, 4332 S 15th Avenue Tucson, AZ 85714 MLS#21205779. Please click on the link below and you will see, this property is no longer avaialble. It is Active Contingent, which means they already have an accepted offer.

I strongly urge you to get pre-approved with a lender first, see what your payments and mortgage would be on a SFR in this price range, I can recommend Paul Volpe, Vice President with locally owned Nova Home Loans, (520) 241-4048. There is no cost or obligation.

Next work with a local Realtor, I do not work in this price range, but am certain there will be responses from plenty of local agents here in Tucson that do and can help you with your search.

Hope this helps & wish you the best of luck.

Spirit Messingham answered:
Depends where, size & sq ft, number of bedrooms, are we comparing SFR (Single Family Residence) Condos, Townhomes?

Sorry, need more information to get you a better idea. Please feel free to give me a call, once I know what you are looking for can send comps to give you a better idea. Really, comps should be done by subdivision (which there are several) for 85719. For example, Bleman sub division average sale is much higher than other areas within 85719.
