The Drivers – Buyer Demand And Low Inventory

The continued flow of baby boomers appears to be created strong demand for Tucson homes. Low active listings and strong demand have pushed prices up. Hey, the economists are right. Demand with low supply makes prices rise.

Will June show more of the same? We will need to wait and see.

May 2019 Mortgage Update

Mortgage rates have moved up. And are now under 4.25% for a 30-year conventional loan. The low rates relative to recent year over year appreciation in home values make home buying an easy choice for investment.

When submitting an offer

Given current inventory levels, low ball offers aren’t getting traction. So, if you “really” want the home, make a “reasonable” offer.

You have to ask yourself, “Will I feel bad if I don’t get this house?” If the answer is no, then put in an offer you would feel is a steal and see what happens. If the answer is yes, put in an offer you and your Realtor think is reasonable.

We will work with you to understand your objectives and analyze the market to determine – as best we can – a price range for the home you want to buy or sell.
