Earlier this year, the median new-home price topped $300,000 for the first time in the Tucson market.

A lack of inventory has created a seller’s market, with multiple offers coming in for a single home, local real estate officials say.

How much house can one buy with a $300,000 budget?

Options vary from a 3,400-square-foot home to a 1,600-square-foot condo, depending on the neighborhood.

Rosey Koberlein and her team at Long Realty Co. and Mike Wilson, with Seger and Associates, identified properties, including existing homes, to provide a sampling of what’s available in the $300,000 price range around town.
