  • Pending Listings: - Call for up to minute
  • Active listings-  Under 2600 - JUNE 2021 Lowest in history (per capita) Within Phoenix Metro in all prices -in a land area of over 515 Square Miles To put this in perspective -With a population of over 4.5 million people there are only 2600 homes available with 2000 or more square feet.
    There are 5,556 broker's offices in the ARMLS database.So we have reached a rather interesting milestone - there is on average, less than 1 active listing per Real Estate office.For every active listing there are 8 ARMLS (Realtors) members. Presumably 1 of them has the listing and 7 of them are writing offers on it.

Below are charts showing real estate market activity in the Phoenix area with an emphasis on Scottsdale and Paradise Valley from June/July. The chart is based on statistical data from sold home prices and denotes the "per square foot "sold" home price increases and decreases between now and the corresponding period in 2020.  As noted above,  in last 60 days, real estate prices continue to jump with high demand, extremely low inventory.  There is no slow down in sight. In Paradise Valley for example, I am seeing homes (multiple homes) that sold 9 months ago for, or in the 2.3 million range being re-listed this month for over 3 million. Buyers beware!!  And the scary part is, most of the Real Estate agents out there will NOT be guiding buyers with the extreme expertise and integrity required in this market. Looking for drivers for this market high demand from families needing homes (not investors ) and interest rates my clients are getting are 1.75% for jumbo loans!
To buyers comparing this to the 2008 crash, there are two very different drivers pushing the market. Whereas in 2004 through 2006 there were a significant number of investors buying homes 2, 3 and 4 homes almost like a pyramid scheme. now the market is being driven by solid demand from real buyers in the Phoenix area and a huge influx of buyers recognizing the amazing lifestyle the Scottsdale - Phoenix area represents.
The reports /charts below are always based on sold closings, so inherently about 45 days behind the actual market. I can share from showing and selling homes seven days a week ( In Paradise Valley and Scottsdale) there are often bidding wars for nearly every home that is presented well, has a good floor plan and is priced reasonably within market conditions.
Please call me for a more detailed analysis.  My pleasure to review them with you.
The next Home Sales report in mid/late March. Please call anytime if you are looking for excellent representation buying or selling a home. Always done with integrity.
Below Chart on home supply update -On average there is a less than a 3 week supply overall-
