The Drivers – NO Changes Here! Strong Demand, Low Mortgage Rates And Low Inventory
Demand is strong and inventory is at historical lows. Supply and demand are driving prices up.
Sellers are in command as buyers look for their “perfect” home in a market with low — REALLY LOW — inventory.
New construction home sales remain high. And the low number of “active listings” in the resale market is moving people to that choice. New homes are being built across Tucson. But in most cases, that new construction home will likely cost more than a resale.
Keep in mind when buying new construction, landscaping, decorating and window treatments are not included in the price. Want a pool, plan on $45,000 to $70,000 for a standard “no frills” pool.
And while prices continue to rise, Tucson is still a good value compared to many areas in the U.S
If a “fixer upper” has even a small appeal, check out a 203K FHA loan. Its a good option to have in your pocket when buying a home in Tucson, AZ.
December 2020 Mortgage Update
Mortgage rates are under 3.0% for a 30-year conventional loan. OMG, who would have thought that. 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 cities in Arizona and the U.S.
The greater Tucson area continues is a top pick for cities to live in across the United States.
