Hard question. Different areas of town have different water sources. Some areas have very hard water and you will see many water conditioners. I believe that the water company would be you best souce for this report. Good luck. ... more

Why do you think it is screwed up? I feel it is amazing. I recently had a client (buyer) give me a lesson on what Trulia can do. Looking up crime statistics is cool!
Trulia is a tool to help you make your decisions. Use it that way, in conjunction with a licensed agent, and you wont be disappointed.

This is a very good questions and its nature is quite subjective. I am sure you have heard this before but real estate is all about location, location, location. With that said, an older home could have a greater value than a much newer one if it is located in a more prestigious area. This also must be evaluated from the buyer's perspective, but the good thing about today's market is that there are no shortages of buyers but only good marketable homes.

Please feel free to contact me directly for more information.

As a Realtor we are not allowed to discuss Crime Rates, however you can Google Tucson Crime Rates or go to tpdinternet.tucsonaz.gov/stats/statistics.aspx.

Hello Betty,

I have sold a number of new builds over the past couple years. The builders have started to ramp up production as of late. It really depends what type of home you are looking for but generally speaking I am a big fan of Lennar, Pulte, Pepper Viner, Meritage, and Maracay. These builders excel at what they do. This does not mean there are not other quality builder in town.

Please feel free to contact me at your soonest convenience and I would be happy to speak with you directly, especially regarding what part of town your are looking at, product types, models, price point, financing terms, and the laundry list goes on....

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Best,

4634 W Bluebell Way in Tucson, AZ 85742 closed in a residential resale on 9/2012 for $165,600. It was 2,142 square feet with four bedrooms. The sale prior to that on MLS was in August. There were some rentals as well.
Age, condition, curb appeal, and even your neighbors can play a factor in your resale value. Please call me for a no-obligation, comparative market analysis if you'd like more information on your own home.

In Continental Ranch: As of January 2013 active inventory was 48, a 14% decrease from January 2012. There were 21 closings in January 2013, 50% above January 2012. Months of Inventory was 2.3 down from 4.0 in January 2012. Median price of sold homes was $177,500 for the month of January 2013, up 32% from January 2012. The Continental Ranch area had 30 new properties under contract in January 2013, down 3% from January 2012.

Months of Inventory reflect the time period required to sell all the properties on the market given the number of closed transactions in the preceding month, provided no new product becomes available. This measurement is a broad one and will vary (in some cases dramatically) by price range, location of neighborhood, and type of property.Months of Inventory is a good indicator of market health, taking into account both current inventory and sales rates. As a rule of thumb, a market is considered “balanced” when Months of Inventory is around 6.

Good question, this is in the 85747 and still considered in Tucson. This listing is no longer avaialble on MLS, looks like the lender may list it for sale as a foreclosure property in the future or possibly for sale at auction.

Best of luck.

Joseph Domino answered:
You need a search tool that allows you to specify the "year built" parameter in your searches. Generally in Tucson the newer homes will be in the outlying areas. If you are not familiar with the Tucson area, you should get some help.

I would recommend contacting a REALTOR in the Tucson area and ask them to set up a "portal" into their MLS system that has the specifications you are desiring. This will provide you the most accurate data.

I do not work the Tucson area, but if you contact me I will be happy to provide you with the names of some agents in Tucson.

Looks like a "fixer upper" so that would be no. You'd probably have to invest in your own windows.

Hi Texbon,

You must refer to the purchase contract and follow the terms allowed in the inspection contingency. You should ask your representative for help on this.

Good luck.

Ron Thomas answered:
With Re-Sale homes, there is no COST available to use in the firuging:
The house may have been built 10-20-30 years ago, and the cost to build it would be nonesense in today's market.

No so with a new-construction: The Builder knows what it cost them to build it, and they know what margin they need to make.
You can bet that the LIST PRICE is padded a little, maybe more than a little.
But you can also bet that they will not agree to a Low-Ball offer; they can sit on it while it appreciates.

The bottom line is; What is the house worth to you? How much do you love it? How closely does it meet your needs?
Try not to be emotional about it.
Yeah, sure!

Good luck and may God bless

Dlockamy answered:
The reason the permits did not show up on the title search is because they are not recorded documents. Depending on what the permits are for you may want to have the city building inspector come out and give you some advise. Or contact the contractor who did the work to see why the permits were not finalized. ... more

David Winter answered:
The property started our being priced higher in March and has had a few price changes. No way to accurately know why it is still on the market without actually viewing the property and analyzing it against the market.

If you have a real estate agent helping you, they should be able to answer your questions.

Good luck.
