Terra Del Sol!
Terra Del Sol is one of my favorite subdivisions in Tucson! It was developed between 1955 and 1957 by Marvin Volk. At that time, Mr. Volk developed the 640 acres between Golf Links Road to the south, 22nd Street to the north, Kolb to the east, and Wilmot to the west.
Today, Terra Del Sol is home to thousands of families, Terra Del Sol Park, Terra Del Sol pool, shopping centers, restaurants and more.
If you are familiar with the area, then you will immediately notice some of the unusual names in the subdivision. Names like Calle Neptuno, Calle Dened, and Calle Cappela tend to stand out to the non local. They are a curious collection of names as Mr. Volk employed Bill Armstrong (a surveyor and architect) and Jack Lamb to survey the land and come up with the names.
The strange names appear to be intentional misspellings or combinations of Latin and Spanish (1). Regardless of how they were designed, they are colorful, and represent a unique nature of Terra Del Sol!
Terra Del Sol Home Prices
As a Broker/Realtor and Investor in the Tucson area for over 20 years, I have seen the prices in this area increase dramatically over the years. Many of the people that I have helped in this area have bought their homes years ago, and are now looking to sell for various reasons.
The chart below (updated daily) shows the varying median sale prices of homes in the Terra Del Sol subdivision in Tucson Arizona. As you can see, homes that are 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes that have less than 1500 sf are currently selling for $156,250, while the same house (3 bedrooms) but between 1500-2000 sf sell for almost $30,000 more.
The variances in the subdivision also depend on upgrades. When a home needs upgrades, it obviously will sell for less than a home that has been improved to selling standards. Over improvement in this area is a danger, as it is unlikely that you will receive the amount of money you put in for over improvements.
