Here are the Tucson Residential Sales Statistics for December 2014:

Average List Price: $300,384 (Up 8.24% over last December)
Average Sales Price: $202,326 (Up 1.40% over last December)
Avg. Continuous Days On Market: 81 (Up 10.96% over last December)
# of Active Listings: 7,283
Absorption Rate: 6.09 (Number of month's worth of inventory)
Tucson's market recovery continues. Prices are slightly up, and though the number of listings has increased somewhat, our market is still stable (favoring neither buyer nor seller) with just over six months' worth of inventory. Homes are taking slightly longer on market to sell.

       ‘TIS THE SEASON TO TREECYCLE!


Once again, residents can recycle their Christmas trees through the City of Tucson’s TreeCycle Program. The program begins on Thursday, December 26, 2013 and continues through Sunday, January 12, 2014. TreeCycle sites are located throughout Tucson and Oro Valley (see list of TreeCycle sites below). The TreeCycle program began in 1997.
Please remember to remove all ornaments, decorations and tree stands before dropping off at the TreeCycle sites. Remember to Tree Pool! Bring your neighbor’s tree— fewer trips means cleaner air.


Additionally, from January 4th through January 12th, 2014, the City of Tucson will have wood chips from shredded Christmas trees available for pick-up at Udall Park, Randolph Golf Course, and the Los Reales Landfill. Bring your own container and take home some free wood chips for your garden.


The following TreeCycle sites are open during daylight hours, seven days a week:


1. Oro Valley lot, “Naranja Town Site,” 660 W. Naranja Dr.

2. Rillito Race Track, 4502 N. 1st Ave., east parking lot (follow signs)

3. Udall Park, 7200 E. Tanque Verde Rd., south of ball fields (follow signs)

4. Golf Links Sports Park, northwest of Craycroft Rd. and Golf Links Rd.

5. Tucson Rodeo Grounds, northeast of Irvington Rd. and 6th Ave.

6. Los Reales Landfill, 5300 E. Los Reales Rd., (follow signs)

7. Silverbell Site, northeast of Goret Rd. and Silverbell Rd. (follow signs)

8. Purple Heart Park, southeast corner of Rita Rd. and Esmond Loop

9. Randolph Golf Course, 600 S. Alvernon Way, southeast portion of parking lot


IMPORTANT: The City of Tucson will not collect Christmas trees from curbs and alleys. Other green waste cannot be accepted at TreeCycle. Commercial tree lot overages are not accepted at TreeCycle sites, except for Los Reales Landfill at posted landfill rates.

Are you looking for something fun for the whole family to do and for free?  Then why don't you plan to go to Reid Park, the DeMeester Outdoor Performance Center tonight at 7 p.m. for the final concert by the Tucson Pops Orchestra.  It's a fun event; people bring blankets or lawn chairs and sit out and enjoy the evening with wonderful music.   The program tonight includes a diverse mix of music, including popular pieces such as "Cat's In The Cradle", Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" which starts quietly and then works its way to an explosive finale complete with cannons, and finally concluding with "America The Beautiful", sure to bring a tear to your eyes and a warm feeling in your heart. 

I hope you can make it to this fine event tonight.  Enjoy!

Today I read a quick article on aol.com.  As we are just beginning our hot season, it might be worth your while to take a look. 

Tucsonans already know it's a good idea to have a towel handy in your car to throw over the steering wheel when you park; especially if there happens to be any metal on it.   Also, by July most residents have mastered handling the steering wheel with only two fingers to avoid unnecessary burns to your entire hands.  Windshield sun screens can make a difference in the temperature in your car.

Here's the article from www.dailyfinance.com:

Happy trails to you.  An oh, don't forget an emergency supply of water in the event of a break down.

I'm seeing yellow!   Do you know what that means?

 (Taken Near Ironwood Reserve)

This is my absolute favorite time of the year!

It's spring and the Palo Verde trees are blooming!

I was driving around in a northwest side neighborhood yesterday, and the tree above called out to me.  Good thing I had my camera with me; I had to stop and photograph it.  Here are a couple other photos from last year's blooming season.

(Taken near Harrison Rd & Broadway)

 

(Taken at the entrance of La Encantada Mall)

 

(Close-up of Palo Verde blooms)

 

I think one of the reasons I love it, is because the rest of the year the Palo Verde tree is fairly nondescript.  But when it blooms it puts on a breathtaking display!

 Keep an eye out, and as you drive around town you'll see whole areas  that normally are desert drab color all except for these few weeks in April.

I hope you enjoy seeing yellow as much as I do!

Yes, Virginia, it does snow in Tucson!

 

On February 20 and 21 Tucson experienced her own share of the white stuff.

Due to the infrequency with which it occurs, to Tucsonans it is a novelty.

To see additional photos, please take a look at my Facebook album:

It's true; every day you hear more and more about how our housing market is recovering.  It has been going on for the past year or more.  It's also been said by some that the housing industry is now the driving force behind the nation's economic recovery.

Now the new home builders are also ramping up their production to try to meet the demand.  Inventory is still fairly tight in the resale market.  With the increased demand for housing and with the still very-low interest rates, the industry expects this growth will continue.

Here's a thoughtful article from Inside Tucson Business, written by Roger Yohem on January 18, 2013 covering some of these topics.  There are some surprising statistics within.  To read the article, please click on the link below:
