Tucson Housing Market September 2016 Mortgage Update

Some suggest the FED doesn’t want to affect the election outcome. That would lead one to speculate on a December 2016 increase. But more likely in the 1st quarter of 2017.

When submitting an offer
Given current inventory levels, low ball offers aren’t getting a lot of 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.
