There is no doubt that as the year comes to an end we have seen many expensive homes sell in the Catalina Foothills area of Tucson. The difference between this year and last is that this year the bargains abound. Has the bottom been reached? Maybe! I have seen some million plus homes sell in the 700s! Did I ever think I would see that–NO! Some homes that would have sold for 2 million are now selling for 1.2 million. Tucson is such a beautiful and special place–rare beauty of the multiple mountain ranges surrounding it, unspoiled Sonoran Desert that is unique to Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico, clean air with nights that sparkle and are star-filled and lastly it has a climate that is hard to beat with most days sunny. Suits me perfectly!
