4128 N Sunset Cliff Place- $500,000-Open Sunday, March 29 – 1-4 PM

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

Come see this beauty in gated, Premier Sabino Mt. If you are coming from out of the neighborhood, either call me at 615-2598 to get the gate code or read the instructions at the right hand gate.

If you have not viewed Sabino Mountain before, you need to see it! Many comment that walking through the neighborhood with top of the world views of the multi-high Mountain ranges and the city, is better than any other place in Tucson. Those who often walked in Sabino Canyon, now walk their neighborhood for even better views once they have moved to the coveted Sabino Mountain neighborhood.

The house I am holding open is a treasure; a rare-find indeed, since the original owner kept lovingly upgrading it – inside and out.

Come see for yourself this Sunday–this almost 3,000 sq ft Monterey Home with pool, custom BBQ and lush landscaping and many custom upgrades.

Two Recent Sales in Sabino Mountain

Friday, March 13th, 2009

4348 N Ocotillo Canyon (range- priced from $399,000 – $419,000)went under contract today; this pretty one-story home is 2,236 square feet. It sold less than 2 years ago (in August 2007) for 430K. 4357 N Sabino Mountain Drive that is list -priced at $1,075,000 also went under contract after only being on the market 2 1/2 weeks. The builder constructed this home for the first buyer and when that owner resold it, the builder bought it back from the people he built it for since he liked Sabino Mountain and it was a great way to show his most popular floorplan to other potential buyers. Tim, the owner of TRS, has a great reputation and that he chose to live amongst us is a compliment to our community. Prior to putting it on the market, Tim upgraded the backyard that has awesome views and put in flagstone out front. This home is model-perfect and well-decorated.

The good news is homes for sale are moving in beautiful Sabino Mountain!

One Million Plus Priced Homes for Sale in Sabino Mountain

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

I do not think it is a good time to list a 1 million dollar plus home in Sabino Mountain since the market is saturated. Here is the list for sale: 4357 N Sabino Mt : $1,075,000; 4041 N Quail Canyon: $1,199,000; 4081 N Quail Canyon: $1,299,000;

One Million Dollar + Homes for Sale in Sabino Mountain

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

I do not know why so many sellers are trying to sell their over 1 million dollar homes at Sabino Mountain at the present time, but I think that there are too many homes for sale in this price range in the same neighborhood. Amongst those for sale are the homes of two local builders. Having too many homes for sale in one small community that are in the same price range, makes the houses harder to sell and usually brings the prices down. For example, Pima Canyon is now having a very challenging time selling homes since so many have decided to put their homes on the market at the same time. As a listing agent, I have always tried to advise potential Sellers when it is not a good time to list their homes. Of course, some can not wait since they may be having financial difficulties or they may have to relocate to another town. But my guess is some are just testing the waters.
The list of over 1 million dollar homes for sale in Sabino Mountain:

4347 N Sabino Mountain $1,075,000
4041 N Quail Canyon $1,199,000
4081 N Quail Canyon $1,335,000
7505 E Crested Saguaro $1,849,000

Although this is great for the potential buyers because they have so much to chose from, this is not good for the owners of Sabino Mountain who want to keep their values where they are. Here’s hoping some of them drop out and wait for another time to sell. I wish those who have to sell, “Good Luck”. I think they are going to have quite a challenge and I am truly hoping I am wrong in this assessment.
