Here’s the Phoenix Real Estate Market Report – September 2018. In it, you’ll get local John’s commentary on the real estate market, and speculations about where we are headed with Phoenix housing. Watch, listen and read to get the facts straight about the health of the Greater Phoenix residential single family home, townhome, and condo sectors.
Active listings in Greater Phoenix are up 3.4% in August versus July numbers.
This is slightly higher than we expected.
Still, even with this surprising increase, we are low on supply by historic standards.
The number of homes going under contract is continuing to decrease slightly meaning that the price increases will likely continue to soften.
The demand for properties priced under $250,000 is still incredibly strong, so the demand for this price range is going to continue for some time.
All this points to a seller’s market for some time to come even though some indicators show flashes of movement benefiting the buyers.
As the market continues to provide data we will be able to see the shifts on the horizon.
We will continue to report our findings so that you can plan and adjust.
Below is a breakdown of many of the various indicators.
As you look at each think about how that indicator may impact the others.
You will notice that as one goes up another goes down.
Simple, yet not so much.
