Meritage Homes Ends 2019 at Gladden Farms and Starts 2020 at La Estancia

As Tucson moves to affordability, Meritage Homes is strategically entrenched

MARANA and TUCSON, ARIZONA – Meritage Homes closed on 91 SFR lots at Gladden Farms in Marana near the end of 2019 for $4.1 million, $44,800 per finished lot. All lots are 40 x 120.

Gladden Farms is a 1,350-acre master planned community in northern Marana, just west of Interstate 10 between Tangerine and Moore Roads. With four homebuilders active in the community, it is one of the most active communities in the Northwest submarket.

Meritage bought its first block lots at Gladden Farms in December 2015.

Will White and John Carroll of Land Advisors Organization in Tucson handled the transaction and have the marketing assignment on all of Gladden Farms by the developer, Crown West.

“Meritage has been very strategic in entrenching themselves in Tucson’s top projects and in this lot size segment,” said White. “They are currently in position to have a strong and efficient ‘conveyor belt’ of lots if they choose. In a market that is experiencing a historic shortage of developable lots, it’s a nice spot to be in.”

Since the beginning of the year, Meritage Homes has also closed on 41 SFR lots at La Estancia in the eastern Tucson market for $2 million, of $49,000 per finished lot. The 41 lots were 40 x 115.

La Estancia is a 565-acre residential community located along the I-10 corridor between Wilmot Road and Kolb Road, and offers residents access to the nearby Julian Wash trail system.

Will White and John Carroll of Land Advisors Organization in Tucson handled the transaction for buyer and developer, Sunbelt Holdings.

“Tucson has been moving to affordability for the past 3 years,” White said. Lot offerings of 40′-50′ feet are not on the market long (if they make it to the market at all) and the pace and pricing power is helping to underwrite these deals quickly and easily. It is proving to be a very successful and sought-after lot size/ home size. The situation we have in Tucson is that several builders are searching for these positions and there are only so many of them to go around. If these lot size opportunities are presented, it would be a good move to pick them up swiftly.”

Oro Valley 9.76 Acres Purchased for New Luxury Rental Community

ORO VALLEY, ARIZONA – Linda Vista Luxury Rentals, LLC an affiliate of Tucson-based Aerie Development (Roger Karber, chairman) purchased 9.76 acres of commercially zoned land at Linda Vista and Oracle Road in Oro Valley for $2.6 million ($6.00 PSF).

The real estate developer plans to construct one-story fourplexes with a total or 64-units being called Oro Valley Villas on approximately 6-acres on the site and two commercial pads for resale at each end of the property.

Aerie is well known for exemplary communities that achieve optimal benefits for all shareholders, from tenants to investors, lenders, neighbors, contractors, government and staff.

CBRE Market Research recently reported that investors and developers in 2020 should consider smaller metros (e.g., less than 2 million population) for multifamily investments. While liquidity and overbuilding risks are generally higher in smaller markets, there are several metros with exceptional multifamily performance today resulting from favorable supply/demand fundamentals (steady growth over recent years and only moderate development activity). Many smaller metros are undergoing a significant upgrading of their urban cores, thereby improving quality of life and helping them retain talent.

Metro Tucson was one of seven smaller metros that had 4% or higher rent growth as of Q3 2019: Albuquerque, Birmingham, Colorado Springs, Greensboro, Memphis, Dayton and Tucson.  CBRE reported they are likely candidates for outperformance in 2020.
