More New Homes in Tucson


IMG_20160406_130216adjustedsmI had the pleasure recently of attending an open house for another Miramonte development closer to downtown in Tucson. These homes are nestled in a small enclave between Glenn St. and Park Ave. Priced between $247,400 and 259,400 they range in size between 1,786 and 1975 square feet of living space. This small neighborhood – Miramonte at Glenn – is almost sold out with only about five homes left.

Here’s a look at the neighborhood and some of the well-designed spaces.

The living room, dining area, and kitchen flow together to provide an open space for entertaining, as well as a feeling of openness. The sliding glass doors open to the patio to extend the entertainment space.


Dining room correctedsm



In the model home three bedrooms and an open space for an optional fourth bedroom were on the second floor, along with a full bath and master suite. The laundry was also conveniently placed on the second floor.


This niche at the top of the stairs can serve as a play room for children or an office space.


The master bedroom has a full-length closet along one wall, with an additional walk-in closet adjacent to the master bath.



The master bath also has separate shower and toilet areas.


There is an option for a washtub and stackable unit available.

These homes feature energy efficient systems that many home buyers who are interested in “green living” will appreciate.

A word of caution:  These homes have too levels, so if you have bad knees, like I do, they are probably not for you!

Newsletter for April 2016


This is the first edition of my Newsletter. I thought I’d share it here so it will reach beyond Tucson. Perhaps there is something you’ll find interesting.

Spring has come early to Tucson. The higher than normal temperatures have made the trees pop and the flowers bloom. Summer will not be far behind! The “Snow Birds” will soon be flying back to cooler climes.

Have you dreamed of hitting the road in a new RV as you approach your later years “after work”? Dreams can come true! I can help you make that transition. As a former full-time RVer, I know what is involved in making the transition from living in a “sticks and bricks” home to living in a home on wheels. I can help you make that transition!

Click here to see the latest MLS statistics. Median sales dropped down to $169,900. While that is down from December, it is up 6% from January 2015.
