Semi-Custom Ocotillo Canyon Home Sells for 483K

August 16th, 2018

4129 N Ocotillo Canyon Drive, which is a 2,604 square foot semi-custom Pepper-Viner one-story home with 3 car garage, sold or 483K by Long Realty. This represents an 83K increase over the last time it sold for 400K eight and one-half years ago. With seemingly few upgrades since the last sale this is good news for Sabino Mountain where appreciation in home prices has been so very slow, as has been for all homes in the Catalina Foothills that are priced over 300K. This home is similar to many homes on the street that have the large great room and separate family room off the kitchen except this one has a flat roof, a side exterior entrance from the nook area and an extra space with office and a full bath.

Quick Sale for Semi-Custom Pepper Viner One-Story Home

July 14th, 2018

It only took a few days for 4129 N Ocotillo Canyon Drive to go under contract: the list price is $479,900 – $519,900. It was sold by the Long Realty agent who originally sold the house to the Sellers.

This Pepper Viner built semi-custom one-story home boasts a three car garage and the 2,604 square foot home includes an extra bedroom and full bathroom off the kitchen that the non-semi custom home does not have. It is a modification of a popular Pepper Viner floorplan that has both a family and a great room and has 4 bedrooms on one side with the builder option of a sitting room off the master bedroom instead of a 4th bedroom. Other differences from the non-semi-custom floorplan include that this one has a flat roof and a slider off the breakfast nook. The outside recreation is mostly on the side vs. the other homes having it more in the backyard. This section of Ocotillo Canyon is quiet and has no homes across the street; additionally it is near the end of the street with much less traffic.

That it sold so quickly is a good sign. It last sold for 400K eight years ago and it does not look like many upgrades were made since it last sold; appliances look the same, etc. There is a fairly new roof installed and new air conditioners and heating units but cosmetically it appears to be about the same. Most of the houses that have sold recently have showed little or no appreciation so if this sells at or close to the list price this may be the first sign that prices are starting to appreciate and sell quicker as well. Of course, alternatively there could have just been a buyer ready, willing and able in the wings. Let’s hope for the former conclusion–time will tell!

It has been a relatively slow year for sales in Sabino Mountain with only 5 homes sold. However, there have been fewer than usual homes for sale. There is little or no appreciation, however, by the looks of the rest of the country that is appreciating nicely, Tucson will likely start to see homes appreciating in the next few years. The Tucson economy has not been doing as well as most of the country but it is gradually doing better.
