Tucson Real Estate Blog Post September 27, 2017

Dante's Fire Cocktails and CuisineDante’s Fire is a place you see on Triple-D. For Food Channel junkies, that’s Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. But Guy Fieri has missed this one. And if he is smart, he will jump in his Camaro and head for Tucson ASAP!

Dante’s Fire fits his show to a tee. Old Shakey’s Pizza place. A not very compelling facade. And located in a less than notable part of town. Inside, the decor is nothing to write home about, but a great and eclectic menu stands out. And Chef Ken Foy works magic in his scratch kitchen.

Oh, did I mention the cocktails? Unique and tastie! Have you had a cucumber martini…Learn More

Pros And Cons On Having A Backyard Pool

Tucson Real Estate Blog Post September 5, 2017

tucson real estate blogOwning a home in Arizona creates images of beautiful backyard pools. Sunny days spent splashing around in a cool, refreshing water in your swimming pool.

Tucson Electric Proposes Higher Charges Fewer Credits For Future Solar Customers

Tucson Real Estate Blog Post May 31, 2017

Tucson Electric Power Co. has proposed a new rate structure for future customers with rooftop solar that would cut credits for excess solar production and mandate time-of-use rates with new monthly charges. TEP and other utilities say the rate changes are needed because, by avoiding using grid energy, solar customers don’t pay their fair share for the fixed costs of generation and transmission.

Zillow under fire for Zestimate system

Tucson Real Estate Blog Post May 23, 2017

tucson real estate blog post May 23, 2017We have written a number of articles and blogs on the accuracy of Zillow’s “Zestimates”. Ok, the fact that really aren’t accurate. Now a homeowner in Illinois is filing a lawsuit against Zillow.

The suit against online realty giant Zillow, claims the company’s controversial Zestimate tool repeatedly undervalued her home, creating a “tremendous roadblock” to its sale.

The suit alleges that despite Zillow’s denial that Zestimates constitute “appraisals,” the fact that they offer market value estimates and “are promoted as a tool for potential buyers to use in assessing (the) market value of a given property,” meets the definition of an appraisal under state law. Not only should Zillow be licensed to perform appraisals before offering such estimates, the suit argues, but it should obtain “the consent of the homeowner” before posting them online……. READ ON.
