Sabino Mountain Mediterranean Sells for Over a Million

Every year at least one home sells for over a million in Sabino Mountain. 4308 N Sabino Mountain Drive  is no exception and since this ever popular community  has few listings it is no surprise that this one sold early in the year . This almost 6K square foot home is sited on over an acre and has striking views of multiple (including high Santa Catalina) mountain ranges, plus as a special bonus has sparkling city light views. The final sales price was $1,070,000 which some folks would say was a bargain; the starting list price a few years ago was close to 1.5 million.

Sabino Mountain is gated and located minutes from Sabino Canyon. The popularity of this community for many is its dramatic setting of mountain, city and Sonoran Desert views. It has a community pool, spa and clubhouse.

New La Paloma Contemporary Sells for 865K

6320 N Placita Arista , listed by Long Realty, sold today for 865K. It is very hard to find a new home in the Catalina Foothills. This one took over 9 months to sell with a few price reductions. Perhaps only having a 2 car garage and having no pool and spa made it more difficult to sell. It should be noted the lot was purchased 4 years ago at the amazing price of 75K .

Last year 53 Catalina Foothills Luxury Homes Sold in the Price Range 1 Million and Over

Last year 53 luxury homes sold 1 million+; the year before there were only 33 sales in this exclusive price range. This reveals a 60% increase in high-end luxury home sales in the Catalina Foothills.

The ultra-luxurious, high-end homes in the Catalina Foothills are much more affordable than Scottsdale and most other desirable places to live in the warmer portion of the United States. Although the number of homes has increased dramatically, the prices have not and have been somewhat stable. These well-priced homes are surely not to last since the rest of the country has recovered and interest rates are escalating. Now is perhaps the best time to buy since the inventory of homes is declining.
