Tucson Real Estate Analysis

Jump To:

Tucson, Arizona is a gem of a community.  Nestled in a valley between four mountain ranges, Tucson’s 2500 foot elevation is correctly described as high Sonoran desert.  The surrounding mountains are an ever-changing palette of color and a beautiful backdrop for valley dwellers participating in a wonderful range of outdoor recreational activities.  Mt. Lemmon, part of the Catalina Mountain Range, has paved road access allowing visitors to easily ascend to it’s 9100 foot elevation.  Expansive vistas of more than 50 miles can be enjoyed along the way.  Mt. Lemmon Ski Valley is the southernmost ski resort in the United States.  Mt. Wrightson, in the Santa Rita Mountains, south of Tucson, is over 9400 feet, albeit with no way to the top except by foot.  Hikers, campers and cyclists are drawn to these pine covered “sky islands”, all part of the Coronado National Forest.

Tucson also bears the nickname “The Old Pueblo” and is arguably one of the oldest continuously populated areas in the U.S.  There is evidence of human activities here as long ago as 4,000 years.  The second largest city in Arizona and ranked 32nd nationally, Tucson and southern Arizona was made part of the U.S. Territory after the Gadsden Purchase (1853).  The 2010 census puts the “city” population of just over 500,000.  Including the “metro” area brings that number to just over 1million.

Tucson is the home of the University of Arizona established in 1885.  The University has almost 30,000 undergraduate students and approximately 8,000 graduate and professional/medical students.  Affiliated with the Pacific 12 Conference the Wildcats of Arizona compete in a variety of athletic competitions.  The 1997 National Championship in Men’s Basketball was a crowning achievement of Lute Olson and his players.

Davis-Monthan Air Force Base is also located in Tucson, established in 1947.  The base is an important training and support facility for the A-10 Thunderbolt aircraft.  The excellent climate in Tucson provides for almost unlimited opportunity for pilots to hone their aviation skills and the nearby Barry Goldwater Air Force Gunnery Range provides added exposure to combat applications of firepower and airborne weapons.

Leading a group of major employers is Raytheon Missile Systems with over 10,000 employees.  Other major employers both private and public include, the University of Arizona, Walmart, University of Arizona Healthcare, State of Arizona and Davis-Monthan Airforce Base.

Tucson’s climate is a major draw for transplants, snow birds and sun worshippers.  Fall and Spring offer outstanding temperatures and lots of sun drenched days while winters are extremely mild.  Summer months can be on the warm side but the elevated Tucson valley and lots of natural desert growth allow for significant cooling once the sun drops below the horizon creating a postcard sunset.  July through September provide a welcome “monsoon” rainy season yielding the majority of the 12 inches of annual rainfall.

Major tourist attractions include the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Old Tucson Studios, Kartchner Caverns, Tombstone, Bisbee and Nogales, Arizona (a port of entry to Mexico).
