In December the Long Foothills office seemed slower than other Decembers, however, now that we are in to January the buyer activity has increased tremendously, and with it we are seeing more sales in the $500,000 and above range. Homes that are priced aggressively and show well are now selling. We see many homes that have been on the market for a very long time ( a year or more) are finally selling. All have had multiple price drops. We are also seeing more homes priced well to begin with, and then selling within 90 days. The market definitely has picked up from November and December. This may be a sign of a market pickup in the popular and beautiful Catalina Foothills area of Tucson.
