Make Yourself at Home in Tucson June 2018

While June is popular for weddings, in Tucson June is also known for the beginning of the annual Monsoon season. Last year during a big storm, the water overflowed a low place beside my house and seeped into my living room. I recently had some work done on the drainage for my home.

French Drain cropped To solve that problem I contracted for the
installation of a French drain between me and my neighbor’s front doors, and some guttering that would direct the water off the roof to the French drain. Now I’m anxiously awaiting the first storm to see how the new drainage works. While it’s dry most of the year in Tucson, preventing water damage from storms is important, and proper grading of your yarcan make a difference.

I continue to build my business and my Senior Real Estate team of professionals to assist Seniors who are transitioning from their home of many years into another living situation. The days have been full of meeting other professionals who focus on the needs of seniors in the Tucson community.

The most recent Housing Report indicates that the housing inventory has continued to decline, and house prices and mortgage rates have increased. The supply is low, and the demand is high, which leads to the higher prices.

Some homeowners are hanging onto their homes to not have higher rates for the purchase of a moreexpensive home. However, if you are a Senior, it often doesn’t matter when to sell because of circumstances that require a more immediate move. The Senior’s home often becomes the funding for the new living situation.

Look for my ad in the new Fall Spotlight Seniors Guide, and for announcements of events and speaking presentations. As a Certified Senior Housing Professional I want to be your “go-to” Realtor when you have a question about Senior moves.
