Tubac, AZ--The Next Big Thing?

Tubac, Arizona has made Conde Nast Traveler's list of: Where To Go in 2014: The Destinations You Don't Want To Miss Out On.  This is the magazine's list of the hottest, most up-and-coming must-visit destinations for 2014. For those of us who call Southern AZ home, this comes as no surprise. 

The charming spirit of this quaint town, surrounded by scenic high desert vistas, has transformed it into a unique artists' colony whose whose streets are lined with art galleries and one of a kind stores.  

Established in 1752 as a Spanish presidio (fort), today working artists' studios surround the grounds which once served as the home for a Spanish military garrison.  Its origins are not forgotten as evidenced by the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park located in the village's Old Town. 

The town's motto of "Where Art and History Meet" can be experienced through the more than 100 businesses that populate the meandering streets of the village, giving it a walk-able and friendly feel.   If you are an art lover you'll want to be sure to make the Tubac Center of the Arts a favorite for frequent visits.  It offers a full array of programming including a Summers Arts Program for Children and an array of workshops on all aspects of the arts, as well as seasonal exhibits that are not to be missed.

Tubac--up and coming?  For those of us who call it home we think it has already arrived as a must see destination.  Come out and see for yourself why this special place deserves its honorable mention in Conde Nast Traveler.

Home Design Trends: Value and Unique Style Trump Conformity in 2014

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert


Unique Style Trump Conformity In 2014The Interior Redecorators Network® (IRN) is observing a sea change in the way Americans are approaching home design in 2014. Rather than maxing out credit cards with purchases of ubiquitous furniture pieces from major retail chains, the majority of homeowners and renters are using their existing furnishings to redecorate, save money and reflect their individuality.

Gone are the days of keeping up with the proverbial Jones' and copying the same design style that everyone in the neighborhood has adopted. In 2014, Americans are interested in making the most of what they already own, or are inheriting, and in having their rooms appear to have been curated over time. In addition, mixing high-end pieces with inexpensive global-inspired accents – "Hi-Low Design" – is allowing for more uncommon approaches to interior decor.

One-of-a-kind furnishings are becoming the most sought-after home design category as budget-minded consumers seek out artwork and accessories that reflect individual interests and lifestyle. Using their existing furnishings and then incorporating family heirlooms, antique and vintage store treasures, pieces from Etsy dealers; consignment stores, flea markets and Craigslist, there are more sources for distinctive looking interiors than ever before.

"No matter where they live, regardless of how big or small their homes are, and whatever their stage of life, people across the U.S. are searching for great value and creating a unique home that reflects their personality," says Lauri Ward, best-selling author and co-founder of the IRN. "The trend started during the Great Recession and has continued to grow even as the economy and real estate markets have improved."

A WOW House w/ Panoramic Mountain Views In CC Vistas Green Valley AZ: Virtual Tour

Real Estate in the greater Green Valley, AZ has definitely gotten off to a slow start this "high" season with 69 sales in February 2014 as compared to 102 in February 2013, a 32.4% decrease.  Year to date (YTD) there have been 148 sales as compared to 179 for the same time period last year.  Active listings on the market were 1039 at the end of February 2014 as compared to 1035 in February 2013.  

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 February the absorption rate was 11.74 and 11.52 for 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 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 16 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.
