Only Home on Tumbling Rock Reduces Price

Monday, February 17th, 2014

tumbling7788 E Tumbling Rock Drive sold for $1,375,000 at the peak of the market. Today it is listed for $1,050,000. This 4,300 square foot home was built by Outpost Builders. It has beautiful Catalina Mountain and sparking city views. The biggest challenge in selling it is the lot next door has a home in the beginning stages of construction so there will be construction noise there for the next 6 months or so. For those of you who do not know where Tumbling Rock is–it is at the end of Sabino Mountain Drive as you go down towards Sunset Cliff Drive. The good news for the future Buyer is that it is likely this price is so reduced to overcome the construction noise that will not be there forever.

Price Them Right From the Beginning

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

The winter housing market has been quite disappointing. What that means for those listing their homes is only list if you are very serious about selling because your List Price will have to be fairly aggressive to attract buyers. What houses should sell–the Quail Canyon Home listed for 730K and the Sabino Mountain Drive home listed for 830K should sell. Boulder Canyon has a home under contract that had an aggressive List Price of 795K (after a price drop) and then it found a buyer quickly.

This winter sales appear to be much slower than last winter and unless the pace of winter sales picks up soon, homes will continue to depreciate in value after we had seen price stabilization last year. It is disappointing, but better to know the truth and act accordingly than to find yourself very frustrated.
