May/June 2014

Hello!

Great time of year. Enjoying the cool nights. I did not do much work on the garden this year, but I have been eating potatoes and green bell peppers. Soon the tomatoes will be ready!

Real estate is moving on. It should be an interesting year. There are predictions that there will be a 66% increase in short sales and although foreclosures were down last year, they were much higher than before the bubble and the predictions are that there will be a slight increase this year. All this speculation has kept the interest rates down. You can get detailed and current updates by following me on twitter and viewing my monthly e-mail!

Well it is that time again that I start preparing for the annual Service Directory. The response to the Directory has always been phenomenal! Many people use it and have found great value in it! The Directory comes in booklet form and is posted on www.tucsonishome.com. To put your service or business in the Service Directory is free! (There is an opportunity to buy an ad as well). If you would like to post your service in the directory you can e-mail me your information! I will need the following:
Type of Business:
Name to be put in the Directory:
Name of Business:
Your phone number:
The phone number to be published:
Business e-mail address:
Address of Business (if applicable):
Brief description of type of service provided:

I like to do this Directory because many of you have helped my business prosper. This is a small way for me to try to help you with your business or service! In addition many people that use this Directory have benefited from using the listed services. A nice handy reference booklet!

So please feel free to e-mail or mail me your information!

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or want an update on values!

Did You Know…

  • Hurricanes, tornadoes and bigger bodies of water always go clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere and counterclockwise in the Northern Hemisphere. This directional spinning has to do with the rotation of the earth and is called the Coriolis force.
