KOLD News Vicki Carr joins us live this morning and Vicki you say changes could be on the way.
Yes Wendy, so right now I’m in the Menlo Park neighborhood and with big developments like Caterpillar just down the street going up, I’m told that the demand for houses like this one could increase. So if you’re looking to buy or sell listen up. I sat down with real estate agent Tony Ray Baker, he says right at the gate be careful when getting pre-qualified online.
Baker tells me there are scams that are going around. Now if it’s your first time buying a home really do your homework. He says don’t miss out on any assistance options that you may qualify for and if you’re looking to move pay close attention to your equity, that’s because it could benefit you of you’re looking to move up in home. Now Baker says from now until August, It’s all hands on deck. He says Tucson’s housing market is on Trend to be very similar to last year and the year before but other factors could bring changes down the line.
There’s a lot of major economic growth going on right now. So with caterpillar and Amazon and hexagoH and those folks coming in, we could see a shortage in the higher priced homes.
Now Baker tells me that the latest housing numbers were good and he expects that to continue for now. Reporting live this morning near downtown Vikki Carr kold news 13 live local late breaking.
