Time to Fall in Love...

February may be known for the Superbowl hype, with this being the biggest game in football, but let's face it-- this is also the month of love! Not only is Valentine's Day just around the corner (February 14th), but this month is also National Wedding Month, and people everywhere are getting into the loving spirit. Whether you're celebrating with a loved one, your family, or even by spending time doing what you love, it's a great time to consider what you love in life. This being said, why not take some time to ensure you love your home? You may already love the home you're in, but if you don't, it's time to consider making a change this month! Between making simple renovations to moving altogether, loving your home is an important part of feeling at peace in your life and it's a great time to take charge!



Love the home you’re in? Wonderful, but improvements can always be made. So, bring it to the next level with some updates! Some fresh paint, changing up your finishes, flooring changes, or even new appliances can go a long way towards making your home feel more fresh and new. There are a wide variety of home improvement ideas everywhere, no matter the size of the project you want, whether you have a few hours to work, time for a weekend project, or if you don't mind a whole month of on and off, heavy duty work. These changes can help you to not only fall further in love with your home, but they may help you fall in love with your home all over again if it hadn't been living up to your standards beforehand. No matter if you love your current home or not, these projects can also help home buyers fall for your home while you're preparing to sell your space.


Not sure where to start with your home improvements? Don't worry! I work with a reputable list of preferred partners that I would love to connect you with. Simply email me more information on the project in mind and I can connect you with the business I feel will help you accomplish your goals. Do you know of a local business that I should be adding to my preferred partner list? I am always looking to add to my list, and at times have specific contacts I need. For instance, if you're a local plumber or pool service company, or know of one that would like to increase their referrals please reach out to me as well! 



Don’t love the home you’re in? Hopefully, if you've done some improvements, they've helped to add value to your home. Maybe you loved your home at one point, however, it may not be what's right for your situation. Preparing for a growing family may mean needing more space, but retirement or having your kids leave for college may mean downsizing. Relocating for your work, the work of your spouse or school is also common for many of us. The idea of finding a new home to not only meet your family’s needs but your wants is daunting, to say the least. That’s where I come in, as your Residential Dream Maker, I do the grunt work to find you the home of your dreams to fall in love with!


If you're ready for the big move or even just giving it some thought, check up on the market to see what similar homes are going for, so you have an idea of what you have to work with. Between what you owe, what you can afford, and what will be available, knowing the market will ease your decision to either stay and love it or leave and list it.


Love is in the air, whether it's falling for your first home, starting over in a new stage of your life, or you're just looking to fall in back into love with your home, give me a call! I'm happy to help you through this process. We can start with an analysis of your property and the market, look at current listings and work hard to check all the boxes. After all, you and your loved ones deserve a home they’re proud to call their own!

Is Buying or Selling Your Home Your New Year's Resolution?  

(Published on - 1/11/2018 5:27:28 PM)

The new year is here! 

For many this means setting resolutions and becoming the best version of themselves. 2018 is the opportunity to be a newer, better you-- so what have you been putting off or always wanted to do? If your goals include bettering your financial status by owning rather than renting or refinancing your current home, then you should know when it comes to real estate, January is a big month. Many people wait until the new year to start thinking about buying or selling their homes, so if this includes you, look no further! Read on for information to help guide you through the process of considering whether now is the time.


what have you always wanted to do?


If you currently own a home, a great place to start is by checking the current value through a market analysis.

  • What are the homes in your neighborhood selling for?
  • What did you buy your home for, and what is it worth now in comparison?
  • Furthermore, how much do you owe on it?

You'll want to find the right agent to not only provide you with the current market analysis but to guide you through this process as it can get overwhelming without an expert on your side. I'm your expert! Call me at 520-975-4459 

If you're currently renting your home or considering buying it's crucial to make the decision between these two very different options.

  • Do you want to work with a landlord, or would you prefer the freedom of having your own land and property?
  • Are you tired of your rental agreement and ready to make a place entirely your own?

One major benefit of home buying is the freedom it allows and the investment value it can bring later down the road. A home is a commitment, but it's one many find worthwhile in the long run, especially at tax time.


Of course, making the choice on where to live once you decide to buy a home is an altogether different and more involved task. 

  • Consider your budget-- what have you been paying and what can you afford to do? Moreover, consider what sort of lifestyle you live or want to live and how home payments will be working into these choices. If you find yourself enjoying some wiggle room with spending money, it may be a good idea to go for a lower price than you can afford. 
  • Consider your location- you may want to live near family and loved ones, or closer to where you work. Everyone has different tastes and needs for both style and location, especially when it comes to Tucson where the variety is vast.
  • Are you a parent- your choice in schools is also a crucial aspect to this process. National School Choice week runs from January 21st-27th, so there will actually be a lot of information available concerning how to pick the right school district for your kids, among Tucson's many. Of course, for those soon to attend college, this is also an important month for students to start making their final choices and for you to consider if downsizing is the best route! Whether you're starting out fresh in Tucson, have lived here your whole life and love the local options for furthered education, or are new parents looking to settle down, take the time to make your school choice a part of you and your family's home buying process. 


Let's put those New Year's resolutions into motion! Whether you're hoping to leave the area, planning to settle, or are just curious about your options I'm here to make the process as easy as possible in finding the perfect home or selling your current one.
