Tucsonans take a relaxed approach to dress and casual clothing is acceptable for most occasions. Summer wear includes wide-brim hats, sunglasses and lightweight fabrics. In the warmer months, indoor air conditioning can get chilly for some so be prepared with a lightweight jacket or sweater. Sunscreen to protect the skin is recommended year-round. In the winter, a lightweight coat or jacket will usually suffice unless you’re planning to visit higher mountain areas where colder temps and snow are possible.

DESERT LIFE The Sonoran Desert is a fragile ecosystem teeming with a variety of plant and animal species that depend on each other for survival; and law protects many of them. Please leave the desert as you find it. Purchase cactus and other native plants at Tucson’s established desert gardens or cactus nurseries.

Regular “Walk in the Park” tours provide an educational experience about the park’s fauna and flora. 1MFBTF DBMM PS WJTJU PVS XFCTJUF GPS DVSSFOU Bdmission QSJDJOH. XXX UPIPOPDIVMQBSL PSH

Tucson Botanical Gardens Catalina State Park Located about 12 miles north of the city on Arizona Highway 77 (Oracle Road), this park affords the best views of the canyons and domes of the Catalina Mountains. A multitude of birds, snakes and lizards inhabit the lower regions, while deer and big horn sheep roam the high country. The park offers an interpretive trail of an ancient Hohokam village. Picnicking and camping are available. Admission is USD 5 per car for day use payable at the ranger station, self-pay after dark. Credit cards are accepted at the gift shop. XXX B[TUBUFQBSLT DPN

This is a major Tucson tourist attraction, and not just for plant lovers. Apart from a rich collection of cactus and desert wildflowers, the gardens offer an educational walk around the history of the native Tohono O’odham Indians and the efforts of local scientists to preserve native seeds. Don’t miss the wonderful Nuestro Jardin, the traditional Mexican-American neighborhood garden, or the shaded restaurant patio. 1MFBTF DBMM PS WJTJU PVS XFCTJUF GPS DVSSFOU BENJTTJPO QSJDJOH XXX UVDTPOCPUBOJDBM PSH

ArizonaSonoran Desert Museum

Sabino Canyon Of all the natural attractions in and around Tucson, Sabino Canyon is certainly the most popular. This large chasm in the Santa Catalina Mountains is where ancient Hohokam people built irrigation dams while mammoths roamed the ground. Access is free but there is a charge for parking. High-lights are swimming (conditions allowing) in clear pools after a six-mile hike to Seven Falls and summer evening shuttle rides by pre-paid reservations.

This world-famous museum is rather a zoo displaying the creatures of the surrounding desert in their natural habitats. Located in the middle of the Sonoran desert about an half-hour drive from the city center, it also provides breathtaking views of the surrounding mountain ranges. The gift shop has an excellent selection of Sonoran desert souvenirs. This is a must for any visitor staying in Tucson for more than just one day.

Mount Lemmon See Tucson from a birds-eye view. Take Catalina Highway 30 miles through the Coronado National Forest where giant Saguaro cacti tower and a variety of desert vegetation blooms year around. Stop at the Seven Cataracts and Windy Pointe Vista for scenic views of untamed mountain landscape surrounding the distant lights of Tucson. Visit Ski Valley and lunch at the Iron Door. The lift operates year-round offering visitors a ride to the sky. Follow signs to Summerhaven, and browse the rustic shops or book a cozy Mount Lemmon cabin. Make a day of it!


Attractions

Tucson

HOMESTEAD

EXEMPTION As of July 17, 1994, the Homestead Exemption is automatic in Arizona; you do not need to file for it. Only one exemption may be claimed per individual claimant or married couple. The homestead exemption allows any resident of Arizona, 18 years of age or older, to exempt from attachment, execution or forced sale $150,000 of equity in a single dwelling unit. In other words, if someone wins a suit or judgment against you, $150,000 of equity in your home can’t be touched. Exceptions include (1) process and sale of a consensual lien, i.e. where a deed of trust or equity loan is foreclosed; (2) a forced sale resulting from a mechanic’s lien, and (3) any equity beyond the $150,000. Note: This explanation is a summary of the Arizona homestead property exemption statutes. You should consult with an attorney to determine if this exemption offers you protection in the event of an attachment, execution or forced sale.

THE ESCROW PROCESS AT T 4 " WHAT IS AN ESCROW? An escrow is a process wherein the Buyer and Seller deposit written instructions, documents, and funds with a neutral third party until certain conditions are fulfilled. In a real estate transaction, the Buyer does not pay the Seller directly for the property. The Buyer gives the funds to an escrow company who, acting as an intermediary, verifies that title to the property is clear and all written instructions in the contract have been met. Then the company transfers the ownership of the property to the Buyer through recordation and pays the Seller. This process protects all parties involved. The State of Arizona licenses and regulates all escrow companies. The Insurance Commissioner and the State Banking Department can inspect a company’s records at any time, providing further oversight of the company’s management and position as an impartial third party to the transaction. In Arizona, escrow services are generally provided by a title insurance company instead of an attorney. The stability, reliability and performance of your title and escrow company are vital to protect the interests of all parties to the transaction.

HOW IS AN ESCROW OPENED? Once the completed contract (or Purchase Agreement) is fully signed and executed and the Seller has accepted the offer, the Buyer's Agent will open the escrow. The earnest money deposit and the contract are placed in escrow. As a neutral party to the transaction, Title Security can respond only to those written instructions agreed to mutually by all “interested” parties (Seller and Buyer); Title Security cannot otherwise alter the contract or create instructions and that protects all interested parties.

AS PART OF OUR SERVICE, T*5-& 4&$63*5: WILL: OPEN escrow and deposit Buyer s “good faith” funds in a separate escrow account. CONDUCT a title search to determine ownership and status of the subject property. ISSUE a title commitment and begin the process to delete or record items to provide clear title to the property. Per contract, CONFIRM that the lender has determined the Buyer, is qualified for a new loan.

ASK you to complete a beneficiary’s statement if you are assuming the Seller’s loan. MEET all deadlines as specified in the contract. REQUEST payoff information for the Seller’s loan s , other liens, homeowners association fees, etc. PRORATE fees, such as property taxes, per the contract, and prepare the settlement statement.

HOW TO HOLD TITLE. The Buyer should inform the escrow officer and lender as soon as possible of how they wish to hold title of their home and exactly how their name(s) will appear on all documents. This allows the lender and title company to prepare all documents correctly. (Changes later, such as adding or deleting an initial in your name can delay your closing.) Buyers may wish to consult an attorney, accountant or other professional before deciding how to hold title.

WHAT HAPPENS AT 5*5-& 4&$63*5:? During the escrow period, our title department begins researching and examining all historical records pertaining to the subject property. Barring any unusual circumstances, a commitment for title insurance is issued, indicating a clear title or listing any items which must be cleared prior to closing. The commitment is sent to UIF CVZFS for review. 5IF escrow officer follows instructions on UIF contract, coordinates deadlines and gathers all necessary paperwork. For example, written requests for payoff information (called “demands”) are sent to the Seller’s mortgage company and any other lien holders.

SET separate appointments: Seller will sign documents; UIF #VZFS will sign documents and deposit funds. REVIEW documents ensuring all conditions and UJUMF requirements are fulfilled; request funds from lender. When all funds are deposited, RECORD documents at the County Recorder to transfer the subject property from the Seller to the Buyer. After recordation is confirmed, CLOSE escrow and disburse funds, including Seller’s proceeds, loan payoffs, Realtors®’ commissions, related fees for recording, etc. PREPARE and send final documents to parties involved.
