Safety figures show benefit of living just outside of Tucson

The most recent figures from the Arizona Department of Public Safety show that living in Cochise County is much safer than living in neighboring Tucson and Pima County. The report shows that violent crimes in Cochise County happen at roughly one tenth the rate that they happen in Pima County.

Part of the reason may be the spacious and rural property available to build a new home. Red Hawk at J6 Ranch just outside of Tucson offers excellent Tucson Area Building Lots that are in this safer area.

Take a look at some of the figures:

Offense Cochise Pima
Murder 7 78
Rape/robbery/assault 739 4129
Burglary 755 7787
Population 131,346 980,263

In addition to having just a fraction of the violent crime of Pima county , Cochise county also reports its property crime rate is less than one tenth of the property crime of Pima county.

Its part of the reason the Cochise county area is growing in popularity as a place to build a new home and live. The size of the building lots also helps keep things safe. Having a larger lot in a rural area is often ideal for eliminating congestion and exposure to undesirable elements. The lots at Red Hawk at J6 ranch just a half hours drive from Tucson range from 2.3 to 5 acres. The Tucson area Building lots also offer the rural atmosphere and smaller area sense of community. This is a an established neighborhood that has seen remarkable popularity since being established nearly two decades ago. Tricia Friedrich, Marketing director for Western Land, says “the residents just tell us they feel safe and at home in this beautiful area. They have a sense of kinship with neighbors and say there is a feeling of peace that comes with living here.”  The development also offers all the conveniences of having a home near the city with close and convenient transportation, schools and shopping offered at nearby Benson, Arizona. The high standards put in place by the developers also keep the area free of undesirable elements. This is a carefully designed neighborhood where the architects kept safety and community in mind when constructing the plan. Additionally, those who buy a lot have the option of picking their own architect and construction company. That means the new homeowners have the option of crafting their own home. They also have no deadline to build. The safety of the area makes this a great investment.

Red Hawk at J-6 Ranch acreage offers the best Arizona custom home lots and land available in the foothills of the Whetstone Mountains, Cochise County. Arizona Land is still the best investment in the real estate world.

For those seeking a lot to build a new home, the utilities are already in place. Water, sewer paved streets reduce the number of headaches that new homebuilders usually face. Figure in the cost of how the lot will improve in value if these utilities are secured and in place for years to come. Cochise County, just a half hour drive from downtown Tucson via freeway, is the best available option for building lots near Tucson. It is a mix of suburban to rural setting with the room you need for a comfortable new home setting. .

Tucson Arizona selected as top real estate investment area

Several national media investment analysts are now recognizing the Tucson Arizona area is one of the hottest opportunities in the United States for real estate and land investment.

The projection by the website Realtor.com picked the best places for investors right now selecting areas where inventory has fallen.  The areas were selected on the criteria that demand hasn’t risen steeply yet, and where the job market is on the upswing.

The study found in Tucson, foreclosures plagued the market, but things may be looking up — and investors are taking notice.  The facts are encouraging and signal a quick turnaround on the near horizon.

The city ranked No. 1 on Realtor.com’s list of top 10 investment markets for this year. Despite prices falling 31% during the housing bust, foreclosure inventories are now declining. Still, the median list price in Tucson was an affordable $170,000 in February, 3.03% higher than a year ago. Homes are selling 12% faster than a year ago. The area has the benefit of being a vacation destination as well as a college town, Research from the website shows that 33% of all sales that closed in Tucson in February were cash sales, suggesting a high level of investor activity.

Built from Realtor.com data updated through February 2012, the report put Tucson, Ariz.; Austin, Texas; and Kansas City, Mo., as the top current real estate markets to invest in. The top ten list was built by analyzing the housing inventories, price trends and unemployment rates from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 146 markets Realtor.com tracks.

Thanks to the jobs boom surrounding the University of Arizona and the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, and an 8.19 percent drop in real estate owned (REO) properties along with a 3.03 percent median house list-price increase from a year ago February, Tucson, Ariz., tops the list. Several national news outlets picked up the report on Arizona land.

Even Tucson Arizona contractors whose business has slowed because of the decline in new-home construction have gotten into the game. Lower land prices are ripe for investors with cash on hand who are considering building a home now and hold onto it until prices rise even more. While values have dropped and investors are swooping in to pick up deals, the presence of such buyers indicates they have confidence housing prices in Tucson will eventually rebound.

At least one report on Tucson Arizona real estate and land indicated a more wide-ranging level of buyer has confidence right now.  The latest trend numbers prove the market is only headed for more demand. There are 2170 active listings for clean sales in Tucson with 883 under contract.  That is a 28% pending ratio.

The breakeven from a buyer’s to a seller’s market is 25%, which puts the Tucson Clean Sale Market closer to the Seller’s Market category than it has been since 2007.  Remarkably, there have been 2161 “clean sale” homes successfully closed in the last 6 months, the best number seen in years and the inventory has dropped for four months indicating there will soon be more buyers who want to purchase lots and build their own homes. Average sales prices are also going up as the average sale price for clean sales in Tucson is $237,029.

Buyers can identify with attractive properties and are willing to pay good, fair market prices for them.

The February median list price for a home headed to market was $170,000, about 3% higher than it was this time last year, according to Realtor.com.  The number of REOs (bank-owned homes) for sale is down 8% from February of 2011 and the number of foreclosures scheduled for sale has dropped 40%.  Sales have also picked up, decreasing inventory levels. Single-family houses and condos are selling 12% faster than they were a year ago, averaging 86 days on the market (the national average is 111). The Tucson Association of Realtors reports  the total number of sales was up 16% in February from the same month a year ago due to a drop in foreclosures and a stable employment rate.

“It’s very exciting news” said Realtor Tricia Friedrich who sells Arizona land just outside of Tucson. “We’ve noticed an increase in activity and the home buyer is now looking for better options.”  Friedrich handles lot sales for 2.5 to 5 acres starting at Just $69,900.

Figures show more home buyers building new homes near Tucson

New figures out this month show a steady trend for those wanting to buy property and build a new home near Tucson, Arizona. The reasons: prices are going up as inventory of existing homes shrinks and more people seeking new homes decide to buy their own lot near Tucson and build on the acreage.

Sales of existing homes were up in February, along with average selling prices, showing some encouraging signs the region’s housing market is continuing to move off the bottom toward stabilization.

According to this report on Tucson area real estate in February, total sales for the month increased 11.4 percent from January to 1,019. And although the median sales price held steady at $125,000, the average sales price was up almost 5 percent to $164,513 from $157,059, according to the Tucson Association of Realtors Multiple Listing Service report.

For the first two months of 2012, the pace of sales is averaging 967 per month, 16.5 percent faster than in 2011. Homes in the $200,000 to $299,999 price range accounted for 14 percent, or 146, sales. Overall inventory fell in February for the fourth consecutive month. The selling price per square foot across the region is showing signs of strength.

Home permits in the Tucson area are also increasingLike the market for existing homes, early signs of stability also are beginning to show up in the new construction sector. New home permits issued for the first two months of 2012 are up 16 percent over 2011.

On a monthly basis, total permits issued in the region grew to 154 in February, up from 125 in January.

Michael Orr, director of the Center for Real Estate Theory and Practice at ASU’s W.P. Carey School of Business told Arizona Week ” … Most of the signals I look at are looking up.”

Orr said the Tucson real estate market usually follows Phoenix trends by up to 12 months. The two metro areas take in nearly 90 percent of the state’s housing market.

Orr said prices are beginning to rise as housing inventory falls, and that is leading some builders to become active again.  “Each week that goes by, we’re seeing less and less homes available, so anybody who’s in the market to buy is getting more frustrated and more desperate, and that tends to mean they’ll bid higher prices against their competition,” he said. “The good news is that we’re seeing a continued downward trend in foreclosure activity in Arizona,” Orr said the state’s housing market has shifted in the last few months, and unlike others, he sees recovery coming. “People are saying we need to get used to the market being this low and it’ll stay low,” Orr said. “I don’t think that’s going to happen. We’re going to have something of a snap back. And, given the very low supply (of houses for sale) we currently have, it’s going to be a feeding frenzy for quite some time.” Prices are rising, in some cases as much as 5 percent a month, he said. Still, because at the bottom of the market they had fallen by 58 percent, there is a long ways to go to get back to normal. Even with rising prices, home ownership is a relative bargain, both in home costs and mortgage lending rates, said David Godlewski, president of the Southern Arizona Home Builders Association. In an Arizona Week interview, he said it is a good time to buy.  A report from a popular realty website shows that, on average, Tucson homes are being sold for more, there are fewer homes on the market, and they are staying on the market for longer. Over the past year, the median home price here jumped 3.16 percent, according to some respected sources.
