The Drivers are shifting – Inventory is UP, but still low compared to “normal” market conditions. Mortgage interest rates are coming down into the lower 6% area. Days on market is getting longer, but under 50 days. Demand continues to be strong to good depending on price point.
Demand for new construction has moderated and builders adding incentives to close the deal. There are new homes are being built across Tucson, but in most cases a new construction home will cost more than a resale due to landscaping and home furnishing costs. But the time to get into a new home is, for now, getting quicker.
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.

Mortgage rates have decreased from the years highs and are now in the 6.0% to 6.5% for a 30-year conventional loan. Mortgage “buy downs” are getting traction in the market.
And Tucson remains one of the lower cost of living cities in Arizona and the U.S.
The greater Tucson area continues as a top pick for cities to live in across the United States.
