There are 59 Tucson luxury homes that either closed escrow (in Jan. ’10) or are under contract that are priced between 500K and 1 million. Fifteen are from the 85750 zip code and fifteen are from the 85718 zip code–both zip codes are in the heart of the Catalina Foothills. Seven homes are located in Oro Valley. Surprisingly enough only two are located at Dove Mountain and only one is located in Vail. The rest are scattered all over the rest of Tucson. It is no surprise that most luxury homes that are selling are in the main Foothills zip codes of 85718 and 85750. Most homes in these zip codes are districted for the coveted Catalina Foothills – District 16 schools and this is where most of the resorts, high-line shopping and restaurants are located. Main epicenter Foothills zip codes usually represent the best investment. That being said, Oro Valley and Dove Mountain offer a beautiful setting with views of multiple mountain ranges and are more affordable. Tucson has many choices to reside where you can live the good life! Prices are more affordable than ever and many are taking advantage of the low interest rates and prices that are the same as four years ago. Why suffer through a cold and dismal winter when you can have 360 days of sunshine in beautiful Tucson?
