Tucson has been just as hard hit as the rest of the nation in terms of sub-prime loan issues and foreclosures.

A few years ago, many agents had never heard of a "short sale" but now they are commonplace. The last year or two has seen a steady price decline for those actually wanting to sell their home (small jab at unrealistic homeowners ) and recently the market has seemed to be tightening up a bit. Inventory is fairly steady but, as you mentioned, prices are becoming more realistic. Sales remain fairly steady also which is a testament to buyer's taking advantage of the market.

I see more and more pre-foreclosures and foreclosures everyday in ALL communities, from the Foothills to the westside down to Sahuarita.. a lot of people are being affected by this fallout.

Here is a look to the Tucson Association of Realtors March 2008 report which should occupy your time for a bit! Hope this helps!

Nothing matters but making money and protecting the company from bad JCAHO surveys. Is TMC any better? What is the RN turnover rate? How many travelers? If you could make the choice again, would you choose TMC? I'd also appreciate hearing from any former TMC patients - did you receive good care? Did the staff make you feel that your condition/situation mattered to them or did you feel as if ringing your call bell was a fruitless effort?

Thanks to all.
I have never been in the hospital there and nowhere that they treat nurses as good as they should. IE: no more than 8 hours to a shift. Frequent flowers, vacations and a hug if that is not offensive.

Just an article I read in the Arizona Daily Star that might be of interest to some people..

TMC makes remarkable financial turnaround (http://www.azstarnet.com/allheadlines/235603 - broken link)

Quote:
...In the second half of 2007, the company cut another 330 full-time-equivalent jobs from its budget, including a lot of contract nurses.
The hospital was overstaffed from absorbing workers after El Dorado Hospital closed, Rich said.
When it cut those expensive positions from the books, hospital executives came up with $4 million to give its staff nurses a raise. Most received $3 to $5 extra per hour...

In today's paper ...

'34% of Tucson-area homes sold at a loss last year as values plunged.'

'Continuing a two-year slide, the median home value in the Tucson metro area fell 13.3 percent in 2008 to $179,311,' ... and 'nationally, home values fell 11.6 percent.'

AZ was officially one of the first states to go into recession and will be one of the last states to get out due to its overreliance on the real estate industry. The state could always rely on a pipeline of retirees to fuel the growth. No longer.

Not that retirees won't come, simply not to the degree as in the past because their home values and retirement accounts have taken big hits too. This will create a vaccum which will be hard to overcome plus there's a huge oversupply of property (more than most states) that will forestall the rebound.

There's been an increasing number of "I'd love to move but can't sell my house' type posts around here. Economic reality is setting in. Any purchases these days must be looked at with a long term perspective. If one's personal situation is somewhat uncertain then best to continue renting.

Great balls of fire! I've never PERSONALLY worked at TMC, but something's rotten in Denmark here, because I have read NUMEROUS complaints about that hospital. Go here, and do a search:
