Ronald McDonald House & 'Walk for Kids'

(Published on - 10/24/2017 7:29:10 PM)

Hey Everyone!  I recently Discovered what the Ronald McDonald house is about!  I've heard of this organization for a long, long time, but never really knew what they do. 

 

Well-- they provide free housing for families that have a child who is staying in the hospital.

 

And, I think that's great.  If you have never visited the house here in Tucson - it's kinda  mini-resort/hotel with tons of friendly people and homey spaces!  Stop by sometime at 2155 E. Allen Rd.

 

I became a Team Captain for the 'Walk for Kids' on December 3rd, 2017 -- and, I think YOU should participate!!  Goto www.WalkForKids.org -- sign up and / or donate some $$ -- and make sure you put down Anderson Kids in the Team Section.  I am looking for 40 walkers and $5,000 in extra donations.  Come support and make a difference for families with hospitalized kids!!

Patriot Day

(Published on - 9/15/2017 10:35:47 PM)

 

Patriot Day is an emotional day for many people and a day for reflection in America.  The events that occurred years ago, for many, are like yesterday – and for some, it feels like a vague bad dream that  you’re not really sure what you suppose to do about . . .  either way, it’s a day that makes you think.

 

In Tucson Real Estate it means we are back in full swing sales.  All of the kids have been Back to School, even the University of Arizona & Pima Community College students are settled into the school year, as well as all the parents.  Even Labor Day activities are done being talked about.

 

What does it mean that Real Estate sales are back in ‘Full Swing’ for you if you want to sell?.  Well, all the excuses for waiting are over.  And, the anticipation of the annual rush of ‘snow birds’ has people either preparing to be For Sale, or are being listed for sale right now!  (Note:  if you want to sell this year or winter-time, get your home on the market ASAP!!)  Thankfully values rose consistently all this year and our current inventory remains LOW. 

 

Buying?  Well, interest rates seem to be dictating that now will always be the right time when they’re hovering near 4%.  Lock in!!

 

If you love the outdoors like I do, then you’ve been teased with some cool mornings and late evening clouds making you think it’s cooling off.  Yep, temperatures are dipping under 100, which feels great … and when morning lows are almost 70, getting up early feels amazing!  Some of Tucson’s best sunsets are actually sunrises!!   Go see some.  Inevitably you’ll also get so see some native wildlife, coyotes, javelina, maybe a bobcat and of course dozens of rabbits doing whatever rabbits do.

 

I’m a Tucson native (almost…) and recently bought my first painting.  Really?!?  Yes, I’m pretty sure I’ve never actually picked out a piece of art.  It’s about 2 ½ feet x 3 feet and feels like ME.  Picacho Peak has been a landmark near Tucson and I’ve been able to see it from my home for over ½ my life, driven by it countless times go to and from Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.  On my way home . . . it means I’m almost there.  Two other things I’ve loved my entire life are semi-trucks (which even today I think . . . I would totally sit and drive cross country . . . back and forth, back and forth) and maybe I would actually do that if I were driving a Porsche 911 ?? because that’s MY car.  I don’t own one and never have, but . . . I know I will.  Commit to buying a piece of art by the end of the year and see what happens!

The sun is rising, my coffee is almost done and I’m headed to get my exercise – a swim at the pool here in Oro Valley!  Maybe I’ll see you there.

Wasps & Bees

(Published on - 8/17/2017 10:10:43 PM)

I got the opportunity today to hunt for wasps at a client's home!

I listed the home for sale and SOLD IT!!  The buyer's requested some basic roof repairs from the inspections that were performed on the home and Desert View Roofing was called in to do the work!  After starting the job, wasps started buzzing around and the job was abandoned.  Who better than ME! to go investigate the problem.

 

Wasps

Armed with my wasp spray, this Realtor will get the job done!  However, if the job IS TOO BIG! then call my friends at 1st Inspection Termite & Pest Control at (520) 818-2238 or visit them online!  http://firstinspectiontermiteandpest.com/service/tucson/az/generalpestcontrol.html

Back to school.  Congrats to all returning students & Congrats to all parents of returning students!!  Hopefully this is a time for celebration for both students and parents.  The summer is always waaay too fast and we're left wanting more, and yet it exciting to see the kids re-connect with friends and dive back into the books!  As parents, have a stable kids schedule can be a blessing!

Back to school also means Labor Day Weekend.  Perfect for a quick breather right after the hecticness of getting the school supplies, clothes, sports, etc.  I've attached a link to some of Southern Arizona activities happening over Labor Day Weekend!

As well, here are additional future events.  https://www.visittucson.org/visit/events-festivals

In the world of real estate.  There's always a lull right when school starts, but it is quickly followed up with a surge of buyers who were waiting until the end of summer trips and sellers doing the same.  Our inventory here in Tucson is still very low, and, at the same time -- lots of sellers are putting their homes on the market between now and right after Labor Day!  

If you are wanting to sell -- call me ASAP so we can get your home prepared for buyers.  If have been wanting to buy -- there should be some great inventory available -- call me at (520) 444-6273 or email anytime!  Curtis@SellingTucsonAZ.com
