Sunset Cliff Drive Home Back on the Market; List Price $274,900

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

back-on-mkt.jpgAfter going under contract a few days ago, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage who listed the house, announced there was a fall-through and it is back on the market today.
4281 N Sunset Cliff Drive an almost 2,100 square foot, one-story house last sold 5 months ago for $253,000. Can not imagine owning a house for a few months and selling it, but I guess things happen; job changes; a few folks do not like Tucson, etc. It is rare, indeed. And fall-throughs are somewhat rare unless the house is a short sale; in that case fall-throughs are prevalent. This one is not a short-sale. And in the Catalina Foothills, few homes are Short Sales and there are few Foreclosures as well. Good thing and this is a stabilizing force of buying in the Catalina Foothills; sit tight and values will come back!

10 Sold in Sabino Mountain 2012

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

Click on the link Sabino Mountain Homes Sold 2012 to view home sales this year in our community.

It should be noted that 7 of the 10 sales were priced under 300K–with prices ranging from 216K to $288,500. The houses priced over 300K are one that was sold for 363K that is the large 3K square foot two-story home with first floor master suite that Monterey– built and two homes on Boulder Canyon that are approximately 3,500 square feet and were built by Outpost Builders that are semi-custom homes on large homesites–one sold for $537,500 and the other with a similar (although not exact) floorplan with pool and spa sold for $610,000. The high-end homes have seen no sales in 2012. It is apparent that some of them are over-priced and will need price reductions to sell. Also summer is not a good time to try to sell expensive custom homes.
