Higher Morgage Loan Limits

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

In 2018 the FHA morgage loan limit has gone up to $294,515 and the conventional conforming and VA loan limit has gone up to $453,100.

What this means is more growth in the overall real estate market. The biggest result I think we will find in Sabino Mountain is that sellers will have an easier time selling their less expensive homes making it easier for them to afford the to move in to the more expensive homes in our neighborhood that are priced from the $300,000s and up. This also will likely bring faster appreciation of the home values.

2018 should bring a great year for real estate sales in Sabino Mountain. Our’s is one of the prettiest neighborhoods in the Catalina Foothills. The location being minutes from Sabino Canyon on the quiet side of the Foothills, plus that Rural Metro Fire Subscription being included in our property taxes makes our neighborhood especially attractive.

Sometimes Homes Do Not Sell as Quickly as Anticipated

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

I have gotten a few inquiries in regards to questions about why are most of the Sabino Mountain homes not selling quicker.

The answer is not simple.There are a few that are priced too high; the market is stable but there has been little appreciation in the past few years. Also some suffer from poor marketing;expertise is demanded especially in this market that is clearly not a Seller’s Market unlike some agents may have told you.Some listings are stagnant. After being on the market for more than 6 months there are some changes that need to be made–at times changing your real estate agent makes a positive difference;sometimes it is a change in marketing strategy that will achieve your goal of the home sale. Having a real estate agent with expertise is essential.
