Stale Homes for Sale

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Luxury homes that have been on the market before summer should come off being for sale in the summer. Why? They become stale; the listings show “days on the market” and they become too many days without an offer. Thus they become less desirable and certainly not the first one buyers would check out when doing their home search. Most luxury Catalina Foothills homes would do better not being on the market in the summer. That means homes over 700K should consider waiting until fall or even better, winter, to put their homes back on the market. The longer the house has shown for sale the more negotiable the buyers feel the Sellers will be.

Dog Days of Summer

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

We have not seen a home go under contract for almost 4 months!

Summer usually is the slowest time for home sales in the Catalina Foothills unless you have a two-story home; this is because two-story homes attract more families with school-aged children that prefer to move in the summer between school sessions.

There are currently 7 homes for sale and are priced between 359K and 928K. Prices run like this: 4 for sale between 359K and 389K and then we move up to the semi-custom homes that are priced at 675K and 799K and then to the highest price ridge-top custom home at 928K.
