The Drivers – Buyer Demand, Low Mortgage Rates And Low Inventory
The new year is here and so are the Snowbirds. Cold winter days sweeping through the Midwest and East make Tucson a great place to live. And low mortgage rates help the decision making. And the December year over year gains in home prices in double digits aren’t bad either.
Sellers are having sweet dreams as buyers look for that “perfect” home in a market with low inventory.
New construction home sales remain high. And the low level of “active listings” in the resale market is moving people in that choice. New homes are being built across Tucson. But in most cases, that new construction home will likely cost more than a resale.
Landscaping, decorating and window treatments are not included. Want a pool, plan on $45,000 to $60,000.
And while prices continue to rise, Tucson is still a good value compared to many areas in the U.S. Hey, the economists are right. Demand with low supply makes prices rise.
What will December bring other than a Ho Ho Ho and a head ache after the New Years Eve party?
December 2019 Mortgage Update
Mortgage rates continue at under 4.00% for a 30-year conventional loan. And down payment requirements have been relaxed a bit. The low rates relative to recent year over year appreciation in Tucson home values makes Tucson an easy choice. And Tucson remains one of the lower cost of living places in the U.S. and Arizona.
Tucson has been identified as one of the Top 10 housing markets for 2017 and 2018. December’s data appears to be confirming Tucson is a top pick for cities to live in.
