September/October 2016


Hope the summer has been going well! Time is flying!

Just wanted to pass on some feedback that I have been receiving on some of the various information I send out! I would like to say thank you for all your help and support!

I have been receiving quite a bit of feed back regarding the monthly e-mail that is sent out: “I receive quite a few e-mails from agents, and yours is by far the most interesting. Always enjoy reading it.” “I always enjoy your updates and tips.”

The Service Directory always gets a lot of positive feedback! “The Directory has been a great resource, thank you”. “When is the new Directory coming out, I gave mine away”. “Please send me another one”. I want to say thank you and thanks to everyone that has helped by putting their service in the directory allowing everyone to benefit from your hard work!

The Real Notes Newsletter: “When it comes out, I always enjoy it”. “Enjoy the recipes”. “Like the Did You Know section. I always share that with my neighbors”. “Like the market updates”.

As for twitter @geneathiel. No feedback! My twitter account does offer some more instantaneous information about the Tucson market. Also different financial information about Tucson, general economy and some various events taking place in Tucson. One might say it is a combination of the monthly e-mail newsletter and the Real Notes newsletter that gets mailed out, with more detail in some areas and less detail in others.

So what have we seen with the Tucson market? Since January the average sale price has gone up and down:

  • $216,510 January
  • $206,128 February
  • $212,988 March
  • $221,260 April
  • $214,290 May
  • $234,752 June
  • $218,985 July

We have seen a lot of activity. We have seen a lot of people taking advantage of the great interest rates! Stay tuned for more updates or call me if you would like more information!
