Green Valley AZ Real Estate--New Home vs. Resale

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

Canoa Ranch Golf ClubThere is so much to consider when you are buying a home which goes far beyond the obvious: location, location, location.  A key question as you begin your search should be how important is the age of the home to you? 

As you explore this question some key points to keep in mind are:

  • Do you want a home that you've helped to design?
  • Do you want to be able to pick YOUR colors and the finishes YOU want?
  • How important is it to you to have the latest in energy efficiency and design?

Many people love the charm that comes with buying an older home or have their heart set on a certain neighborhood.  In Green Valley AZ it is all about the views, and you may have decided you must have a home in a certain area that offers the views that you want to wake up to each and every day.   And, for some tackling a home that may need work is all about making it their own and putting their personal stamp on it.  However for others, the prospect of remodeling is not a welcome one.

As you consider whether you should buy new or a resale, here are some facts you should know:

  • Energy Efficient:  Homes built today must meet far tougher national code standards for energy efficiency than those built only a few years back.  In fact, most newly built homes come with energy certifications covering walls, roofs, windows, doors and appliance packages.

  • Built The Way You Live TODAY:  New homes are built with the open flowing floor plans, higher ceilings, bigger kitchens, and laid out in a way most people want to live now.  Plus, most new homes come with the sophisticated wiring that's needed for high-speed electronics and communications equipment.

Monsoon Season Marches Into Southern AZ

by Judi Monday, Your Green Valley AZ Expert

Monsoon Season 2013 

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

I woke this morning to a welcome sight...puffy clouds barely tinged with telltale signs of dark grey dotting the bright blue and endless skies above me.   A signal that the always much anticipated Monsoon time of the year is arriving. 

Monsoon is an Arabic word that means "season".   Although it is believed that Monsoon is used to describe the arrival of precipitation, it is traditionally 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.

Monsoon Season 2013In 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, today there are signs that we may actually have a Monsoon season and soon!

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.
