14 Homes Sold in Sabino Mountain in 2015

Fourteen homes sold this year versus last year of 20 sales which reveals about a 30% decrease in the number of sales from a year ago. Of this years’ home sales – there was one in the 200 thousands, 4 in the 300 thousands, 2 in the 400 thousands, 2 in the 500 thousands, 2 in the 600 thousands, 1 in the 700 thousands and 1 in the 800 thousands and then a big jump to $1,450,000 for the only new home (located at the end of Sabino Mountain Drive). There were many price decreases for some of these homes and of homes listed for sale now, we still have two homes that have struggled to sell for over a year and one this has been on the market for almost a year. The real bright spot in our homes sold this year is the new contemporary sold very quickly (in 41 days) even though it was in a price-range (over a million) that is struggling for home sales in the Catalina Foothills (it sold for $1,450,000). There were 8 homes (including 3 sold by my company-Russ Lyon -Sotheby’s International Realty) that sold around 3 months or less. The main key is to price your home correctly right from the start.

Another Good Opening for New Listings

If you are thinking of listing your home and it is a semi-custom or custom home that would sell for 450K-750K, this would be a good time to list your home for sale.

When selling your home, timing has a lot to do with how fast it will sell. If there are none or few on the market the chances of it selling quickly are much better.

Pepper-Viner One-Story Homes

It is a good time to list a one-story Pepper Viner home for sale since there are none for sale and the snowbirds have come! There are two Monterey one-story homes for sale; both are of a similar floorplan.

2015 will reveal far fewer Sabino Mountain sales than last year. I will post the 2015 report at the end of this month. There are some rare high-notes, such as Russ Lyon – Sotheby’s International Realty sold a new contemporary at the end of Sabino Mountain Drive for $1,450,000. In fact this company stands out since it very quickly sold three homes this year. Give me a call if you are thinking of selling your home at 520-615-2598.
