2130 Gemelo Canyon Green Valley AZ  

Magnificent Mountains Views In Canoa Ranch: Virtual Tour

Real Estate sales in September 2014 outpaced sales in 2013 with 63 sales as compared to 40 in September 2013, a 57.5% increase.  However, on a year to date (YTD) basis sales continue to lag behind 2013 with 754 sales as compared to 873 for the same time period last year, a nearly 14% decrease.

The slow sales are definitely having an impact on the "absorption rate" which has to do with demand.  It is the rate at which the market absorbs the inventory of homes that are for sale--in other words how fast are homebuyers buying the homes that are available.  In September the absorption rate was 10.67 YTD. According to the National Association of Realtors, a Seller's market occurs when there are less than 6 months of inventory on the market and a Buyer's market when there are more than 6 months of inventory on on the market.  In other words, the greater Green Valley AZ real estate market is still very much a Buyer's market. 

If you are thinking about selling your Green Valley AZ home give me a call, I'd love to hang an Another SOLD By Judi in front of YOUR house.  With more than forty-five of my listings selling in 2013--and 49 are already under contract or sold in 2014, including 2 that were on the market less than a week--I'd love to make yours the next one.  My extremely successful marketing plan WORKS...let me prove it to you.

BM

Butterfly Magic Opens October 1st!

9:30-3:00

$13 adults, $7.50 children

Includes Gardens Admission

Tucson Botanical Gardens is home to one of the best butterfly houses in the country.  Join us for the opening of the 9th season of Butterfly Magic at the new Cox Communications Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion.  Marvel and get up-close-and personal with nature’s flying flowers. 

The Cox Butterfly & Orchid Pavilion will transform into a magical oasis filled with over 300 butterflies at any given time. All of the butterflies are shipped to Tucson Botanical Gardens in their pupae form and emerge in front of visitor’s eyes in the chrysalis exhibit, before being transferred into the greenhouse. A new shipment of pupae is received almost weekly making the butterfly variety diverse and ever-changing throughout the season!

Dart Frogs have now been added to the Butterfly Magic exhibit and they have become all the rage! As of now, there are 5 different varieties and a total of 25 frogs.  Native to Central and South America, Dart (or Arrow) Frogs received their name from Natives using their toxic secretion to poison the tips of blow darts. Their toxicity varies between species and is largely determined by diet and consuming native plants and bugs in Central and South America. The Gardens frogs are bred and live in a contained environment, so they do not carry high levels of toxicity. As with all frogs, if handled a slight burning will occur on the skin and hands should be washed immediately to avoid spreading.

While you may come to marvel at the beauty of the butterflies, be sure to also tour the gorgeous gardens as they are included in the cost of admission to the Cox Butterfly & Orchid Pavilion. 

Butterfly Magic is Open 7 days a week, 9:30-3:00 pm beginning October 1st through April 30th


 

New Kitchen Floor Choices: Is One Right for You?

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

By Barbara Pronin
Kitchen Floor Choices: Is One Right For You?The kitchen floor, besides being practical, has become a major design statement—with a bigger choice of colors, styles and textures available today than ever before.  So before you decide on a new kitchen floor for your Green Valley, AZ home, take a minute to read about the many options available. 

“You need to consider practicality first,” said Home and Garden TV’s Katie Allison Granju. “How much time do you spend in the kitchen? What’s most important to you?”

Granju offers a brief description of the newest flooring options to help you make the right decision:

Porcelain tile
—Porcelain tile is very durable, and is available in a wide range of colors, designs and prices. It is tough enough not to chip, crack or discolor under most circumstances – and more affordable than natural stone. Limestone, slate and travertine lend character to the room, but they are absorbent enough to stain to an extent and they tend to scratch more easily than porcelain.

Wood—Wood flooring is making a major comeback. Wood adds charm and comfort to the kitchen and is easily continued into adjacent rooms. Properly installed and maintained, wood floors are durable and easy to clean – especially if factory pre-treated with a polyurethane sealer, which eliminates the need for anything more than regular sweeping or mopping.

Cork—Soft, comfortable, and remarkably resistant, a cork floor “remembers” its shape, preventing furniture dents and scuffs. Dropped dishes and glasses Kitchen Floor Choices: Is One Right For You?probably won’t break on a cork floor – a bonus if you have small children – and cork is extremely water-resistant.

Brick—Brick flooring pavers come in many colors and textures, and they can be laid in interesting patterns. Like tile, they require some grout maintenance, but they are practically indestructible and offer a homey look reminiscent of the vintage farmhouse kitchen.

Rubber—Today’s manufacture rubber flooring is environmentally friendly, often made from recycled tires, and offers a dazzling array of colors. They are durable, easy to clean, and easily withstand busy kitchen traffic while offering busy cooks an easy-on-the-feet surface.

Monsoon Season 2014 Marches Into Southern AZ

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

Monsoon Season 2014 Marches Into Southern Arizona 

For the very latest on all things Green Valley AZ Real Estate--follow Judi on

Finally the Monsoon season has made its yearly appearance.  It always feels like our reward for surviving the month of June, which can be brutal with high temps and increasing humidity as the build-up to the Monsoon Season draws closer.  I love the sight of clouds tinged heavy with rain filling the bright blue and endless skies above me.   Our signal that the always much anticipated Monsoon time of the year has arrived. 

Monsoon is an Arabic word that means "season".   Although it is believed that Monsoon is used to describe the arrival of precipitation, it is traditionallyDouble Rainbow During Southern AZ Monsoon defined as a seasonal reversing wind accompanied by corresponding changes in precipitation.  Today, the term is used to describe seasonal changes in atmospheric circulation and precipitation associated with the asymmetric heating of land and sea.

In a nutshell, when you see the term Monsoon used by the media at this time the year it refers to the rainy phase of a seasonally-changing pattern.  The key word being RAIN, and yes, with ever-increasing build-up of clouds above there will be moisture with cooler temperatures. 

During the summer months in Arizona, the winds shift from west or northwest to a south or southeast direction.  This shift is caused by the combination of the Bermuda high and the intense heat of the desert.  A strong southerly flow  brings in moisture from the Gulfs of California and Mexico.  When the moisture encounters the higher terrain, it is lifted and can form thunderstorms with heavy rainfall, hail and strong gusty winds. 

What it means to the less technical among us (myself included!) is that we will soon have relief from the triple digit heat as the rain cells tend to cool things off.  Unfortunately however, the increased humidity on clear, sunny days can be very hard to handle for those of us who are fans of the "dry heat"!

Keep an eye out for those incredible double rainbows, unique cloud formations, and astounding storm patterns with a downpour in one area while the suns shines just miles away.  If you have a camera close at hand, you are in for some once in a lifetime photos especially if you can capture the lightning that seems to come from every direction at the same time.  It is truly a sight to behold...the power of Mother Nature during an Arizona Monsoon.
