Looking to see what the Tucson real estate market is up to? Today, I look online and share with you exactly what is going on! Let’s learn together!
Karl Krentzel: Hey everybody, it’s Karl Krentzel from Karl Buys Houses. Just wanted to check in with you today and give you a quick market update, as well as show you a couple of properties that I’m trying to check out today.
Let’s go ahead and take a look at the hot sheet for today from the Tucson Multiple Listing Service. As you can see, there were 136 brand new listings put on the multiple listing service, and as you can see today is December the 16th. With 136 brand new listings being put on the multiple listing service within the last 24 hours, and you can see that there were 120 other properties that received contracts. This is fabulous news, because as you can clearly see, 119 properties actually closed within the last 24 hours. That means 119 families closed and got their property that they were looking to buy, and 119 families closed and got the money that they were looking to sell. The market is going very, very strong.
As you can see right now the list price, the sales price ratio, people are getting 97% of the asking price. On average, it’s taking 46 and a half days for them to go ahead and get their property under contract, and then it’s going to take another 30 days or so to close. If nobody else put their property on the market today, it’d be about three months worth of inventory on the market.
Let’s just go ahead and take a quick look and see what we can find on the Tucson multiple listing service for investment property, because as you know, I’m always looking for properties to invest in, and unfortunately many times the multiple listing service, you won’t find too many properties for people like me, but occasionally you will. I’m going to go ahead and just show you what I kind of look for.
