ATTENTION GRABBER: We're paying the buyer's commission ($75,000 and we'll be looking for a new home in SaddleBooke (where we lived before). And, best of all we'll be using the realtor who helps sell our home. That means another commission! Our maximum budget will be $300k to $500k! Taking that first step is a big one, and we hope to get lots of interested realtors who are now assisting buyers in high-end luxury homes.
My target date will be based in individual interest and availability for the Broker Tour! The attendees will include the luxury realty firms who now represent buyers already looking.. And, we’ll serve coffee, water and pizza or doughnuts. With a note saying “Bring your appetites” lol

$500,000+ in Restoration and Upgrades
After we purchased our home, we did $500,000 in restoration and upgrades. And more, since then. I am 4th generation real estate and Son John now 5th generation (and Our Managing Partner of DLG_Tucson).
John is very active in "Flips", which, he and his associates, buy, renovate and sell .. single family homes.
Besides our extensive experience, Son John was the General Contractor! Check out DLG-Tucson locally based.
Zillow suggest a range, and suggested we consider their automated suggestion. The range was up to $3 Million! But we decided to price our home competitively. Also, considering the rebuild cost is $3.4 Million and the additional cost of land ($1 Million). We are offering a "bargain basement" price.
We're doing a For Sale By Owner. And, today we listed it.
Our Last Appraisal
While Zillow offers their general appraisal within a broad range, we had our own appraisal done some time back. Click on the link to view it.
Front Courtyard Landscaping Update
We were converting our front courtyard from a lawn to xeriscape, when it occurred that the prospective buyer may want the option to decide. So, based on a condition of sale, we agree to either retain the lawn or convert the front courtyard to Xeriscape.
See Proposal below.
In Tucson, the seller is obligated to issue a SPDS to the seller. See a copy of the Seller's SPDS when we purchased our home. We prepared it some time ago and will need to issue it again. Click on link to view it.
You're gonna get the whole picture . photos and live video (including the drone views). This is a real favorite of mine. I even use it to show family and friends our beautiful home and grounds.
Wildlife and Butterfly Garden
Our property rests on 4.2 acres. it runs from the street up the mountains to just below Pusch Ridge Wilderness.
Besides our home and pool/spa area, there are 8 unique spots for sitting and relaxing.
Driving up our driveway, we developed a Wildlife and Butterfly Garden. This is next to the creek (wash) that runs down the mountain.
Monsoon season produces lots of rain which produce water flow for our little stream. Nice for sitting out and enjoying nature, as well as our 2 courtyards and a unique Point Lookout which we also created for sunset views.
Sunsets, the gift that keeps on giving.
Skyline Country Club, Included in HOA
The Club is not owned by the community, but they do lease it from us. And, so our HOA fees include limited privileges for the community. Prospective buys are urged to visit as it is an element of the "buy in". Our privileges include, monthly HOA dinner, golf, tennis, dining, fitness, etc.
Checkout a night at the Club!

Downsizing but "But Making Mama Happy" .. We're enjoying what we have but it's time to move on and make more memories. Naturally, our home may be smaller but it's gonna be with the style and comfort we've been used to!
Besides selling our home, we're 75+ and are looking for the right team to help. First, we're looking for a home in SaddleBrooke similar to what we had. We even know where to look .. near the main clubhouse .. and the models (Shawnee and Sundance).
It can be a fixer upper or a move in ready home. And as in the past, a place to live out our final years and make memories!
I'v'e setup a new Blog "Tucson Tudor Bulletin Board. See the Menu Options. This will be used to post our "Open House" dates as well as any questions, comments or suggestions.
