"Price record shattered" - Whereas, 15 years ago, the record monthly average sales price per sq. ft. across the entire ARMLS database was $190.61, set on May 5, 2006. The Phoenix Metropolitan area exceeded that level for the first time on August 2020 and we are now over $263.00psf. This is a look at Scottsdale Home Price Trends Since 2020

It only took 14 years until October 2, 2020 to exceed $200 psf and then $210 psf was passed on November 23, 2020.

Scottsdale Pricing Trends - Why Not to Try to Second Guess Market - Excerpt from 2021

With as high as demand is, it is interesting to note, "many home-buyers are "on the fence" waiting for a slow down" .. so interestingly enough, "in addition to the current market of anxious home buyers, there is a substantial underlying market waiting to jump in". In terms of a 'foreseeable slow down', of course a slow down is very possible but at the current moment there are no factors that would lead one to that conclusion. With the Market Index about to exceed 500 for the first time in the next few days. The speed of appreciation is on trend to step higher, not lower. Noting for those Home-buyers that may be holding their breath for dramatic price decreases - "don't "... typically, even if the market were to crash tomorrow, historically it takes the 'sellers market' many months and years to inch lower.

Let's look at the market (as described above) in terms of graphs and charts.


This is what the composite CMI referenced above looks like :

If you look carefully at the chart below; there is less than a 2 week supply homes priced under 500,000.
The picture improves somewhat, with at least a 1 month supply, as you go up in price to $600,000 range and under a 6 month supply over 3 million. Noting- There is no time in the last 15 plus years when there has been less than a 6 month supply of homes over 3 million.  Definition Break -"Supply" what supply means is; If there were no new homes listed on the market in the respective price categories,  it would take only that number of days/ weeks for all of those homes to sell.
