Find a Home Style You Like
From an outsider’s point of view, it may seem like Sierra Vista only has one style of architecture, but with a closer look, you’ll easily notice the distinctive styles in Sierra Vista’s real estate. Popular designs range from ranch-style homes to Spanish-adobe properties. Each one caters to a specific set of needs, so it’s often suggested that you make a list of what you’re looking for in a home and then narrow down which properties to look at. Your agent will be good at helping you with these decisions, but for a quick overview, here’s what you can expect from certain architectural styles:
- Ranch Style
Typically features an open floor plan to create more space in the living areas. The flow of the home is more “open,” meaning you won’t feel closed off from the rest of the family. There’s also special attention paid to the front and back patios (and yard space).
- Spanish Adobe Style
These homes appear more “squarish” from the outside, but typically feature more luxurious amenities inside. Throughout the design, you can notice Spanish-Mexican characteristics that add a unique flair to living.

Get Answers to Common Questions
Q: How much can I afford to buy?
A: Determining which price range you should buy at depends on a number of variables. Most mortgage lenders advise that you don’t spend more than 28% of your gross monthly income on a mortgage payment every month, but it’s also important to take into consideration the amount of debt you have and your credit score. All these elements will impact your mortgage. Lastly, consider if you are going to sell your home in a few years. You don’t want to invest heavily in a home if you plan to sell within 3 years. The best way to figure out how much you can afford is to contact our local mortgage expert or you can get a quick estimate from Zillow.
Q: How large of a down payment do I need to put down?
A: If you want to avoid paying premium mortgage insurance (PMI), then I would advise paying down 20% (though you can put down lower). However, in the long run, it will save you money.
Q: If I buy a home now, can I sell it in 3 years?
A: Yes, you can sell your home if you only plan to live there for 3 years. You will need to carefully plan the finances before you purchase any home, since closing costs and agents fees could set you back (before you gain any equity). The best way to be prepared is to talk with one of our agents, as we regularly help other homeowners do this (when they have job transfers).
