Recent forecasts for Tucson’s economy and real estate market have given reason to be optimistic, despite previous assessments that use the term “anemic” to characterize growth and recovery from the Great Recession.
Like much of Arizona’s physical landscape, those navigating the residential real estate market confront peaks and valleys. On Arizona Week, we check in with the market, almost 10 years after the housing crisis.
On the program
- Mike Orr, editor of the real estate industry website The Cromford Report, talks about the boom-bust cycle of affordable housing.
- The University of Arizona’s Michael Bond discusses how getting into the housing market is more than managing money.
- Pam Ruggeroli of the Tucson Association of Realtors talks about the contours of Tucson’s real estate landscape.
- Some of the state’s highest housing prices may not be where you expect them. The highest-priced market is Flagstaff, which has a troubling gap between availability and affordability.
