We had gorgeous weather weather for the Accenture match play World Golf in Tucson last week. It was a good week for golf and a good week for Tucson. The Tucson Conquistadors put on an amazing tournament. With weather like that and a venue as terrific as the new Ritz Carlton golf course we’re sure to attract more people to the the area who need to build a custom home. Of course McCreary Homes will be there to take care of the most discriminating.
It was great to see Tiger Woods back. Phil Mickelson, Ernie Ells, Camilo Villegas, Anthony Kim, all incredible players. It’s unbelievable how far and how well all the guys on tour can hit the ball. Rory McEllroy…at 19…wow what poise
As we’re all aware the housing market and economy overall is suffering. My prediction, especially with last week (Tucson having the golf, rodeo, and spring training), is that when the housing market bounces back, the custom market in a place like Tucson will be first. We’re starting to see a glimmer here and there….permits up slightly in last month….a few reports about subs getting more work and seeing building plans to price out come across their desks. Optimism is something we need to project.
