"Aging-in-Place" Renovations

More people who love their Tucson homes, neighborhoods and views are renovating and updating rather than buying a newer house.  A smart approach is to take into consideration those cool design elements you desire, at the same time including features that will allow you to continue to enjoy your home as you age

For example, consider eliminating steps by filling in that sunken living room.  Replacing tubs with walk-in showers, door knobs with stylish levers and outdoor steps with gently-sloped walks will enhance your comfort and safety as years pass.   Age-appropriate improvements also make your Tucson house more marketable when you do decide to sell.

You know I would love to sell you a new house.  But if you are already in the house of your dreams, it makes sense to plan your renovations wisely to extend your enjoyment for many years to come.
