Make Yourself at Home in Tucson

In this month of November we celebrate and give thanks for the many gifts we have in our lives – our families, loved ones who have passed, our Veterans, our health, our free elections, and those who serve us in many ways that we often overlook and fail to acknowledge. This month I am grateful to have a new roof on my house, and my truck in good repair, and for those who made all that happen; I’m grateful to have my partner and my elder friends, and the many opportunities to serve others.

A Word About Real Estate in Tucson
Housing inventory remains low while the prices continue to rise. The median price of homes in Tucson stands at $211,845, a 7% increase over the same month last year. If you have been thinking about selling your home, consider that the value of your home has also increased and it is still a seller’s market up to $350,000-$400,000. To see a complete report for the Tucson housing market, visit my website. For any questions you might have about the value of your home, invite me for a no-obligation consultation.

A Word About Seniors
  • The Walk for Alzheimer’s took place on November 10, and raised nearly $258,000 toward their goal of $290,000. If you have someone in your family, or you know of someone who is challenged by the disease of Alzheimer’s, contact the Pima County Office on Aging (PCOA) – (520) 322-6601 – for information about support groups.

  • If you or someone you know is a Senior thinking about downsizing to a smaller home or into a senior retirement community, I invite you to contact me (520-248-6297) for a no-obligation consultation.

  • In the future I will be offering workshops and seminars about the issues facing Seniors and how Seniors can plan for their transition to a different way of life. Be on the lookout for announcements of these events!

A Word About Me
Last month I attended the 4th annual Legacy Conference of the Senior Real Estate Institute in Oklahoma City. The theme of the conference was Thinking Outside the Box. As Realtors serving the Senior population we accept the challenge to create DIFFERENT services and value for our customers and clients. Working with Seniors in a sales transaction involves much more than the typical real estate services provided by Realtors. Training as a Certified Senior Housing Professional (CSHP) involves not only knowledge of real estate practice, but also of the psychological and life-phase issues of Seniors in their later years.
