I have noticed that lately sales are picking up in areas that attract the snowbirds such as Ventana Canyon Golf Villas. Usually the best time to buy is between Thanksgiving and New Year’s since there are fewer showings then and the Sellers feel more anxious. So you snowbirds who are reading this, do not wait until February and March when many snowbirds buy: you want to be one of the few looking and buying houses and not be competing with the pack. This is good solid advice and it comes from lots of experience. Any buyers needing to view homes in the Foothills or Oro Valley, give me a call. I will be around during both holidays.
