Oro Valley Home Pricing Expertise: What’s the home really worth?
Oro Valley home prices vary based on several factors, but the four most important features that impact Oro Valley, AZ and NW Tucson home values are:
Catalina Mountain Views:
Those gorgeous mountain views! Oro Valley homes with unobstructed Catalina Mountain Views bring in a large pricing premium. Many Oro Valley home buyers will not consider buying a home without mountain views.
Buyers love privacy or the ability to be on a golf course in Oro Valley. Homes on acreage or homes that back to open space or the golf course have an added sense of privacy and usually sell for a premium.
Upgrades, Remodeling & Age of the Home:
Many Oro Valley homes were built in the late 1980's & early 1990's (Oro Valley was founded in 1974).
However, “updating” and “remodeling” are two different terms. While many sellers claim a home is remodeled or updated and move-in ready, buyers often find the updates were over a decade ago and still feel the home may be less-than-ideal as far as current updates.
Typically, a home needs updating every 15 - 20 years to stay current with the latest in home features, fixtures & finishes that buyers are looking for when they search for their new home. When and how well a home has been maintained & updated over time plays a big factor in its overall value.
Outdoor Living Space:
We love our outdoor time here in Oro Valley! Most people move to Oro Valley to enjoy our amazing weather and they spend a lot of time outside, especially as the harsh weather takes over the more northern climates.
Therefore, the homes’ outdoor living space is as important as the home’s interior. Homes with extended and covered patios, outdoor fireplaces, ramadas, pools and professional landscaping add tremendous value to an Oro Valley home.Ready to see what homes are on the market in ORO VALLEY?
Before you make an offer on an Oro Valley home, I will prepare a comprehensive home sales analysis for you using the above-listed criteria, as well as recently sold homes, so you are fully educated on Oro Valley home values.

Let me be your trusted advocate, a skill that only comes with a high level of expertise and professionalism.
Oro Valley Home Inspections & Repair Requests.
In Arizona, the standard home inspection period is 10 days. During this time, the buyer may inspect the home for possible defects. I will be present at your inspection, and strongly recommend that a home be inspected by:
Certified Home Inspector. This is well-spent money. Have a comprehensive inspection of the home and its mechanical systems.
Licensed Termite & Pest Professional. We get lots of critters here in Southern Arizona. Be sure your home is free of termites and pack rats.
Licensed Roofer. Roof leaks are a major contributor to unseen home damage and mold issues. Be sure the roof on your new home is in sound condition before the final purchase.
Generally, the inspection will reveal a few issues – many times they are easily handled; sometimes they can be more difficult. A key part of the home purchase process is negotiating the repair request after all the home inspections are complete.
The inspection of the home will reveal at least a few issues that are not obvious to the buyer, even on a well-maintained home.
Together, we will go through the report item by item to determine which items are important to you and represent your best interests during this process.
