SELLERS continue to control of the market due to the low number of homes for sale. The Sale/List price stayed below 100% for the third month, but did not change from September.

The demand for retirement or seasonal homes in Tucson remains strong, but as inventory grows one would expect the Sold/List price ratio to fall further.

The Drivers – Demand remains strong, inventory increasing slowly and mortgage rates topping 7.0+%.

How will those factors effect buyers during the last quarter of 2022 is a unanswered question?

New Construction

Demand for new construction remains strong, but some builders are “managing” the number of homes they are committing to build due to raising material costs and supply.

There are new homes are being built across Tucson, but in most cases a new construction home will cost more than a resale. Last but not least, new home buyers are waiting 8 to 12++ months to get in the their home.

Keep in mind when buying new construction, landscaping, decorating and window treatments are not included in the price. Want a pool, plan on $70,000++ for a standard no frills pool.

And while home prices continue to rise, Tucson remains a good value compared to many areas in the U.S

If a “fixer upper” has some appeal, check out a 203K FHA loan. Its a good option to have in your pocket when buying a home in Tucson, AZ.

October 2022 Mortgage Update

Mortgage rates have moved over 7.0% for a 30-year conventional loan depending on the lender. Inflation has increased the cost of home ownership, but 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.

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. But with homes selling at 101.4% of list price 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 feel is a steal and see what happens. But your chances of a “great deal” aren’t good.

If you think the home is right for you and your family, put in an offer you and your Realtor think is reasonable.That is likely to be at list or higher!
