Are there homes in the North area (Oro Valley or around there) that are not in subdivisions and what would be an average cost? For a 1500 or 1700 sq. foot home?
Doesn't have to have land, just not be in a track style?
Or, would this only be possible in Tucson, older homes, and what areas would be best to look in--as far as a "good" area? Thanks in advance.

Hi Phoenix Lady,

What're you poking around down here for??

I just took a quick peek at the Tucson MLS and found a few choices, average around $300k though. Not sure if that is too pricey for you.

As far as Tucson, the older homes don't quite resemble the newer subdivisions so I'm not sure if that would satisfy you. If you look anywhere but Central Tucson you have would have many more to choose from.

There are many homes with some land not in a subdivision in OV. I looked at quite a few when we were buying a few years back. I don't know about "avg" cost--would depend on how much land, views, quality of building, etc etc. but certainly they are there.

Thanks for info. We've been in Phoenix (West Valley) for 11 yrs. It's getting a little crowded here (1.9 m to over 4 m now). We're just trying to get any information we can together about possible places to go from here for when we're ready.

I want to buy land for a log cabin. I see reasonably priced land but I am somewhat confused about terms like subdivisions, covenants, restrictions, etc. I want a place where I can just buy a piece of land free of resrictions to build my cabin on. Is it possible? I have been told to stay away from land in subdivisions.

Any good websites to learn all this vocabulary?

If you like Phoenix, other than the growth, you will probably not like Tucson. I've lived in both and would prefer Phoenix area any day. People are friendlier, more neighborly and helpful and I miss the intellect. Your area many great restaurants and shopping that can't be matched here. I was used to working with highly intelligent professionals and am now working for a small company - not very team-oriented. HOAs also stink. Best wishes.

I have a house to sell in Tucson, older home on a one acre lot with some views. Has 3 bed, 2 ba, kitchen with large dining room. The house is not listed. It is near the Tucson Mall and up on a hill with private driveway. It is not a track home and over 2000 sq ft. If you are interested, please contact me.
