Arizona cities expected to be hit by 'silver tsunami' as boomers leave their homes

As senior citizens vacate their owner-occupied homes, markets like Phoenix and Tucson are expected to see large percentages of new vacancies.

Tucson and Phoenix are among the top U.S. cities expected to be hit by the “silver tsunami” or the amount of homes that become vacant as their owners, senior citizens, die or find other living accommodations, according to Zillow research.
According to the study, during the next 20 years, 27% of owner-occupied homes nationwide are expected to hit the market due to the death or otherwise being vacated by their owners, possibly causing negative economic ripple effects in regions most affected.
Roughly 34% of owner-occupied U.S. homes are owned by residents aged 60 or older, and 55% by residents aged 50 or older. As these households age and begin vacating housing, that could represent upwards of 20 million homes hitting the market through the mid-2030s.

Tucson is among the large metros studied that is expec ...

A guide to investing in Arizona’s opportunity zones

The opportunity zone fund provision that was included in the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has created significant hype in the business community, especially within the real estate industry. Whether you are looking for a new way to go to market with investors, or you are looking to take advantage of the tax benefits yourself, there may be an opportunity for you.

Lucid Motors begins hiring, lays groundwork to make luxury electric sedans in Casa Grande.

The Lucid Air, Lucid Motors' first production luxury electric vehicle, will be built in Casa Grande.
LUCID MOTORS
As Lucid Motors Inc. looks to begin manufacturing its first all-electric, luxury vehicle at its Casa Grande plant in December 2020, the Newark, California-based startup promises a high-tech, spacious and comfortable vehicle unlike any other.
The all-electric Lucid Air sedan touts a 400-mile battery range, zooming from zero to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds with standard features and options the company says “rival high-end benchmarks," as an obvious competitor to the high-end Model S made by rival Tesla Inc.
Peter Hochholdinger, Lucid’s new vice president of manufacturing, has some experience with that brand. He was previously vice president of production for Tesla. He says Lucid's car will stand apart because it’s “clearly a luxury product.” He joined the company in July with nearly 30 years of automotive manufacturing experience.

It’s ‘National Roof Over Your Head’ Day!

Did you know that each year in the United States, we celebrate “National Roof Over Your Head Day” on December 3rd?
As noted on the National Calendar, it was “created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head. There are many things that we have that we take for granted and do not stop to appreciate how fortunate we are for having them.”
From bungalows to cottages, and farmhouses to treehouses, today we show our appreciation and gratitude for the places we call home. Owning the roof that shelters us is something many renters still aspire to, knowing there are so many financial and non-financial benefits to homeownership.
According to the 2019 State of the Nation’s Housing from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University,

“Cost-burdened renters now outnumber cost-burdened homeowners by more than 3.0 million. In addition, renters mak ...
