  • Catalina Mountain Views. Sun City Oro Valley homes with unobstructed Catalina Mountain Views garner a huge pricing premium. Many Sun City Oro Valley home buyers will not consider buying a home without mountain views.
  • Privacy. In Sun City Oro Valley, homes that back to open space or the golf course have an added sense of privacy and sell for a premium.
  • Upgrades, Remodeling & Age of the Home. Sun City Oro Valley homes were built between 1987 and 1995. Some Sun City Oro Valley homes are exactly the same as the day they were first purchased while others have been completely remodeled with all the latest home features, fixtures & finishes. When and how well a home has been maintained & updated over time plays a big factor in its overall value.

Sun City Oro Valley Home Inspections & Repair Requests

In Arizona, the standard home inspection period is 10 days in which the buyer may inspect the home for possible defects. As a minimum, we strongly recommend that a home be inspected by:

  • Certified Home Inspector. A comprehensive inspection of the home and its mechanical systems.
  • Licensed Termite & Pest Professional. Be sure your home is free of termites & pack rats.
  • Licensed Roofer. Roof leaks are a major contributor to unseen home damage and mold issues. Be sure the roof on your new home is in sound condition.

Often, the touchiest part of the home purchasing process is negotiating the repair request after all the home inspections are complete. The inspection of the home will reveal at least a few issues that are not obvious to the Buyer, even on a well maintained home. The inspection reports can be dozens of pages long and some problems are important and others aren't. We will sit down with you and go through the report item by item to determine which items are important to you and represent your best interests during this process.

The Difference Between Pictures & Photography.

Professional Photography is one of the most important factors in realizing the Seller’s dream. Sun City Oro Valley Home Buyers scour the web hunting for the home of their dreams. They use the photos of your home to determine which homes they schedule to see with their real estate agent and which homes do not make the cut. If the pictures of your home are not professional, you will not get a second chance to entice Buyers into viewing your home.

Any agent can snap pictures of your home using their iPhone. Photography takes a combination of equipment and skill that includes:

  • A Professional Digital SLR Camera
  • Ultra Wide Angle Lenses for Shooting Interior Spaces
  • Knowledge of Lighting Techniques
  • Knowledge How to Properly Frame a Shot
  • Professional Photo Editing Software & Skills
  • Optimizing Photos for Web & Print Media

The Key To Getting The Highest Possible Price.

The purpose of preparation is to make sure the Buyer feels comfortable in your home. Remember, Buyers come to find their new home, not visit yours. Simple things can make a big impact on Buyers including:

  • Declutter. Too Many Items Distract from the Home and Can Make It Feel Small or Cramped.
  • Depersonalize. Put Family Pictures Away so Buyers Can Envision Themselves Living in the Home.
  • Clean, Clean, Clean. Make Everything Sparkle.
  • Routine Maintence. Replace Burnt out Light Bulbs, Tighten Door Handles, Have Rugs Professional Cleaned, Etc.
  • Paint. If You Paint Is Looking Tired, Nothing Helps like a New Coat of Paint.
  • Landscaping. With Our Outdoor Lifestyle, Make Sure the Landscaping Is Fresh.
