Amazing it is only April and 4 homes in Pima Canyon are under contract and 7 have closed escrow in 2013. Today 7598 N Mystic Canyon (List Price $1,050,000)went under contract in less than a month’s time (listed by Long Realty). This 6 year old home is 3,552 square feet and is sited on 1.67 acres with dramatic Catalina Mountain views. It last sold 3 years ago for 875K and some upgrades were added to the outside after this sale.
Pima Canyon continues to be the most popular luxury community in Tucson. Reasons for its popularity include: location–at the epicenter of the Catalina Foothills surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery while nestled into the Santa Catalinas and the Sonoran Desert with views of the city lights and the multiple mt ranges all the way to Mexico; it has a 24 hour guard-gated community; the HOA does not include a golf course, a community pool, etc. so HOA fee does not have to reflect these additional expenses–although these amenities are closeby at LaPaloma , Skyline and Ventana Canyon, etc; it is a newer community–most homes built after 2000; it only has luxury custom homes and has no smaller track homes; it is close to Catalina Foothills Schools (although students must be open-enrolled to attend); and it has a closer proximity to Phoenix International Airport than some of the other high-end Foothills communities.
