Oro Valley Real Estate - Top Seller Questions

How long will my home be on the market?
There’s no easy answer to this question. In Tucson, the current days-on-market average is 38 days, but your home could sell much faster or slower. Geography, local trends, the marketability and price of your home all play a role. Higher-priced homes take longer to sell, because the pool of qualified buyers is shallower. The more prep work you do before listing your home, the easier, and less disruptive, the “for sale” period will be.
And the more likely you’ll be to beat that time-on-market average. In this market, it isn’t unusual for a value-priced home to sell in a matter of days.
How will the right buyer find my home?
Your agent will take care of this! Finding the right buyer is the goal of everything your agent does. Networking with other agents, locally to globally, paired with a skillful use of a comprehensive set of marketing tools will give your property the most exposure to potential buyers. In today’s market that means a strong digital marketing strategy that lets buyers see your listing anytime, anywhere, on any device.


Oro Valley Real Estate - Fast Home Staging

Selling your home these days takes more than just finding an agent and listing it. You’ve got to really sell it. That means impressing buyers the second they walk in the door.
One of the best ways to do this? Home staging, where your home's decor undergoes a makeover in order to entice home buyers to swoon and make an offer.
A well-staged house will sell more quickly and draw a higher sales price.
So if the clock is ticking, here are home staging tips and tricks that you can pull off fast.
Put down the toilet seats
Open the blinds
Take out the trash and recycling
Clear your countertops
Adjust the temperature
Hide any piles of toys, clothes, and mail
Remove personal items
Clean, clean, clean
Add or adjust your lighting
Hang a mirror
Rearrange the living room furniture
Make small repairs


Oro Valley Real Estate - Does a Pool Add Value?

Questions that are often asked of real estate agents by homeowners who have pools include how much can be added to the sale price and can the costs of installing a pool be recouped in a property sale.
The answers are not what sellers want to hear. But they can be good news for buyers.
That’s because whilst homes can appreciate in value, pools do not. A pool is like a motor vehicle – once it has been used, its value starts depreciating, and a pool that is more than 10 years old would have almost no value at all in a real estate transaction.
The condition and quality of the pool fixtures and fittings that have been used also has a big impact on whether an older pool can hold its value. But the average quality pool in a suburban home is likely to depreciate at around the same rate as a motor vehicle – a large drop in value the first year, and then steadily decreasing until there is not much resale value left at the end of a decade.
A good rule of thumb is to work out what the cost of installing the pool represents as a percentage of the cost of building or buying the house. So, for example, if the cost of building the pool was 12 percent of the cost of building the house, then increase the selling price of the house by 6 percent.
Of course, comparable prices in the neighborhood still apply for a final sales price.


Oro Valley Real Estate - We Buy Homes Scams?

Home sellers who choose to sell directly to an iBuyer often end up paying higher fees than if they sold the traditional way with a real estate agent.
iBuyers provide instant cash offers and quick closings.
But how profitable is it for sellers who choose this expedited route to a sale?
Researchers estimate that sellers end up paying between 13% to 15% more when working with iBuyers. The percentage reflects differences in traditional real estate agency fees, as well as an allowance iBuyers often request for repairs and an additional 3% to 5% to cover the iBuyer’s liquidity risks and carrying costs. Most iBuyers will inspect the home, assess a generous home repair allowance, and negotiate (an additional) credit to handle such repairs.
The report also notes that the iBuying model could make properties vulnerable to several financial risks, such as the use of automated valuation models that could inflate property values. Also, properties remain empty while in the possession of iBuyers, which could make the homes vulnerable to theft and other criminal activity.
For some sellers needing to move or requiring quick extraction of equity, make these services worthwhile,” “But what percentage of the market will want this service remains to be seen.”


Oro Valley Real Estate - Buying a Home 3 Myths Busted

Myth: Buy the worst house in the best neighborhood
In the most affluent neighborhoods, the worst house is actually likely to appreciate more slowly than the houses around it. In essence, not only is the myth not true, when it comes to the nicest neighborhoods, it’s the exact opposite of true. The worst house in the best neighborhood is the worst investment.
Myth: If you want a screaming deal, buy a foreclosure
Foreclosures frequently sell for less than other homes. When people are in financial crisis, chances are good that they aren’t keeping up with basic maintenance. In addition to issues of neglect, some homeowners facing foreclosure actually vandalize the home and take out copper piping, appliances and anything else they might be able to sell. Add to that the fact that banks don’t have the same disclosure obligations as traditional homeowners.
Myth: Real estate is a terrible investment
Over most long periods, stocks perform at almost twice the rate of residential real estate. But you can’t live in your stock portfolio. Buying a home probably means taking out a mortgage. Not only does that bring tax benefits, but it allows you to leverage your down payment to make a bigger investment. If you have $100,000 to invest in stocks, you can buy $100,000 worth of stock. But if you take that same $100,000 and invest it in a home at 20 percent down, you can buy $500,000 worth of real estate.

Client Reviews

Great job


Ian did a great job. On top of everything. Pleasing experience. Took away the stress.

John G

Ian sold a house for us back in 2000 in 18 days. This past January he did it again and believe it or not, again he did in 18 days. As the saying goes, we couldn’t have done better if we tried. But of course we tried very hard to make sure all went well and Ian performed an excellent five star ***** job to sell our house. Timing of sale was perfect for allowing us to move into the new house. His expertise and concerted approach was key to making the sale go through.

Robert C

Our experience with Ian Taylor was superb! He understands that he is a real estate agent and not a bank clerk as many people now treat this special but difficult job. He is very involved and helped us to keep on top of every situation. He shared all the responsibilities with us from the day we asked him to represent us till after closing. He worked hard to make sure that we (the sellers) and the buyers (with their agent) were treated fairly and respectfully. Because of his immediate and constant attention to the selling of our home, we got a buyer immediately, and through his diligence, all went smoothly. We can recommend only one other agent in our 2 decades of buying and selling houses and Ian is one of them. Thank you, Ian.

We have worked with Ian before. He is a top notch realtor. Honest, straightforward. Integrity. The Title company, on our last house sale made a mistake of $1400.. Ian took it out of his proceeds to make it right for us. I have never dealt with a better realtor.

Ian was a very patient realtor who worked with us for two years in our attempts to find a good winter home. We appreciate that he offered frank opinions of properties and took us to see primarily homes he thought we would like. We appreciate all the time he spent with us.
