For those of you who have been waiting for prices to drop significantly since last year, all things considered, the market is not moving in that direction in any kind of hurry . This is  rather extraordinary, despite, inventory being UP and higher rates; prices in the 2 million and up range or only mildly retreating. And as an IMPORTANT NOTE here.. The more exceptional properties - on better lots are receiving significantly higher sale prices. The mild price decreases are currently on the average home versus the extraordinary home. Please call for more details.  

All things considered, in the current market,  is just mildly slowing down and more so on less high demand properties.   The primary reason is, "rates are up but not enough to offset supply and demand economics Housing Inventory in the Phoenix Metro area was 14,946 30 days ago , we are now down to 14,002 in less than 30 days... still inventory is waaay up from 5500 in August 2022. It does not seem to be enough to slow anxious buyers,  still enjoying relatively low interest rates.  To view the exact current conventional rates, click the link for TODAY'S Mortgage Rates
