Spring 2019

Hello and Happy Spring!

We are rolling!  A vibrant beautiful year!

More progress has been made to www.tucsonishome.com!  So I invite you to visit the website! 

Also, it is time to start preparing the upcoming Service Directory.  Hard to believe!  So if you would like to promote your business, this is a free way of doing it!  If you want to help support the Service Directory, you also have an opportunity to do that as well.  I know many of the services have been used!  The Directory has been well received for the past 16 plus years!

The stock market is turning into a roller coaster!  Whew….still up at this time…but rolling.  The interest rates are still FANTASTIC!!  Opportunity is amazing!  While the market remains steady and the market times although inching up are still amazing, properties once again that are priced right are selling!  We have not seen this good activity in a number of months!  Opportunity for those who are looking to buy and sell!

Some Home Maintenance

Keep an eye out for termites. Beginning in March and going through May or June, be on the lookout for these winged insects. “Termites swarm in the spring,” says Victor Sedinger, certified home inspector and owner of House Exam Inspection and Consulting. “If there’s a bunch of winged insects flying out of a hole in the woodwork, that’s probably termites. Call a licensed professional pest-control company. You’ll save money and trouble in the long run.”

Prevent mosquitoes. In recent years, we’ve become more aware of the potential danger mosquitos can pose to our health. “West Nile virus and Zika virus are just the latest diseases caused by these winged pests,” Sedinger says.

The best way to prevent mosquitos around your home is simply to get rid of any standing water. “Walk around your property [and peek at your neighbors’]. If you see anything or any area where water stands, fix it, tip it, get rid of it or maintain it regularly,”

Did You Know?

  • In 1885 residents of Tucson bid for a $100,000 grant to host the state’s insane asylum. Phoenix won the bid for the asylum and Tucson got handed $25,000 to build a University instead. The process of acquiring land and building the University moved at a snail’s pace and in 1891 the University of Arizona finally opened the doors for its first class.
