The current real time market profile shows there were approximately 9,938 new listings (up 606 listings from last month) on the market in September 2016 and 7,442 sold transactions. The overall inventory of homes on the market is down -16.4% in September 2016 as compared to the number of home on the marker in August 2014. The current number of home on the market is equivalent to houses on the market in September 2015 but due to the greater demand this year the low inventory of homes on the market may cause prices to appreciate at a faster rate. There is currently 21,738 listing on the market and 7,442 sold transactions which equates to 2.7 months of inventory at the market. Historically, 2.9 months of inventory on the market which is the lowest the Phoenix market has seen June 2013.

In July 2016 the average sold price took a steep dive south as well as the number of sold transactions. The month of September the average sold price increased approximately +2.4% to $282,128 and is approximately back to the average price in June 2016 at $282,879. Historically, as we enter the winter holiday season the number of sold transaction decrease but since 2014 the average sold price increased. In 2014, the average sold price increased +5.3% from September to December and in 2015 the average sold price increased +3.6%. Since October 2015 (12 months ago), the average sold price has increased approximately +7.2% (up from last month), the average days on market have is unchanged (down from last month) and the number of sold transactions have increased approximately +17.4% (down from last month).

The volume of foreclosure purchases since October 2015 (12 months ago) has decreased approximately -17.9% and the volume of short sales decreased of approximately -25.8%. Since August 2013 the number of foreclosures have decreased -211.7% indicating a healthy market. Also, since August 2013 the volume of short sales have decreased -479.7% because the inventory of homes “up-side-down” have been exhausted and values have risen to a point where consumers can break-even or sell with some equity but some homeowners are still up-side-down if they purchased their homes between 2005 and 2007.

Since October 2015 (12 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market have decreased approximately -8.5% or 21,754 homes for sale on the market to a gradual decrease of 21,738 homes. The total number of listings is low as compared to 26,076 listings in August 2014. This decrease in the number of homes for sale indicates we are currently in a seller’s market (low supply and increased demand).

Real estate prices are still relatively low (near 2008 prices), mortgage rates are still at a historical low and the macroeconomic market is improving both in terms of prices and the overall economy. Give us a call to discuss your best buying or selling strategy, TODAY!!

The current real time market profile (properties for sale) shows there were approximately 10,648 new listings (up 94 listings from last month) on the market in February 2016 and 5,833 sold transactions. Since the beginning of the year the number of new listings has exceeded the number of sold transactions which the recent interest rate increase by the Fed may entice property owners to sell and tighter mortgage underwriting guidelines for borrowers are preventing new purchases.

Since March 2015 (12 months ago), the average sold price has increased approximately +5.9% (up from last month), the average days on market have decreased approximately -9.8% (up from last month) and the number of sold transactions have decreased approximately -25.5% (up from last month). Since the month of September 2015 the average sold price has formed a new upward trend where each month the average sold price has gradually increased. Last year’s summer buying season was weak where we saw price decreases from June to September. If the number of new listings continues to increase and the number of sold transactions decreases, then prices in the summer may start to decrease again in 2016. Let’s hope this summer’s buying season is better than last year.

The volume of foreclosure purchases since March 2015 (12 months ago) has decreased approximately -38.8% and the volume of short sales decreased of approximately -28.6%. Since November 2014 the volume of foreclosure purchases went up and now the trend is back down once again. Also, since August 2013 the volume of short sale purchases have consistently decreased because the inventory of homes “up-side-down” have been exhausted and values have risen to a point where consumers can break-even or sell with some equity but some homeowners are still up-side-down depending if they purchased their homes between 2005 and 2007.

Since March 2015 (12 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market have decreased approximately -1.4% or 25,745 homes for sale on the market to a gradually decrease of 25,221 homes. The total number of listings is still low as compared to 29,308 listings in April 2014. This decrease in the number of homes for sale indicates we are currently in a seller’s market (low supply and increased demand).

Real estate prices are still relatively low (near 2008 prices), mortgage rates are still at a historical low and the macroeconomic market is improving both in terms of prices and the overall economy. Give us a call to discuss your best investment strategy, TODAY!!

Since the beginning of the year the number of new listings has exceeded the number of sold transactions but in December the number of sold transactions exceeded the number of new listings coming on the market. The number of total listing is still low as compared to 29,308 listings in April 2014 and this shift may be the direct results of the holidays.

Since November 2014 the volume of foreclosure purchases went up and now the trend is back down once again. Also, since August 2013 the volume of short sale purchases have consistently decreased because the inventory of homes “up-side-down” have been exhausted and values have risen to a point where consumers can break-even or sell with some equity but some homeowners are still up-side-down depending if they purchased their homes between 2005 and 2007. The slight increase in short sales in December could be due to banks wanting to get these assets off their books before the beginning of the new year.

Since January 2015 (12 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market have decreased approximately -9.3% or 25,745 homes for sale on the market to a gradually decrease of 23,353 homes.

Phoenix Residential Market Report ~ August 2012

As you can see from the first chart above, Position Realty Market Index, the first time home buyer tax credit created a great deal of demand in the market similar to the real estate boom from 2004 to 2006. From March to June of this year the residential real estate market experienced another buying frenzy caused without government intervention or relaxed mortgage underwriting standards. Currently the number of transaction is slowing back down to number of transaction experienced around the same time a year ago but the market is still very competitive with multiple offers and prices are remaining high. This slow down in number of transaction could be cause by the upcoming presidential election.

Since January 2012 (8 months ago), the average sold price has increased approximately +16.7% (down from last month), the average days on market have decreased approximately -23.9% (down from last month) and the number of transaction has increased approximately +18.2% (up from last month). The largest average price increase over the last 12 months was experienced in March from $168,961 in February to $184,078 in March.

The volume of REO purchases since January 2012 has decreased approximately -42.4% and the volume of short sales have increased approximately +17.3%. The volume of REO purchases are shrinking due to the increased volume of trustee sales, more banks are accepting short sale transaction and an existing supply of inventory is getting purchased at a faster rate.

The current supply of homes for sale on the market is 20,582 where a year ago there were approximately 48,000 homes on the market. Since the January 2012 (8 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market has decreased approximately -13.7% (up from last month). As more and more buyers enter the market and as more of the supply of residential homes are exhausted, real estate prices will continue to increase at a faster rate (as currently experiencing).

Trying to “time the market” for the perfect time to buy is nearly impossible but there is no better time than now to purchase. Real estate prices are at an all time low (not for long), mortgage rates are at a historical low and the market is improving both in terms of prices and the overall economy. Time to buy is NOW!!

Phoenix Real Estate Market Report ~ May 2012

Buffett: ‘I’d Buy Up a Couple Hundred Thousand’ Homes

Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor and Berkshire Hathaway CEO, said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” recently that he’d “buy up a couple hundred thousand” single-family homes if it was practical.

Buffett said that’s because he believes purchasing a home with ultra-low mortgage rates and holding it for the long-term has become a better investment than stocks right now.

“Housing will come back, you can be sure of that,” Buffett wrote in his annual letter to shareholders recently.

Buffett forecasts an increase in household formations, as more people who moved in with their parents or family members during the recession look to move out and get their own home soon.

“People may postpone hitching up during uncertain times, but eventually hormones take over. And while ‘doubling-up” may be the initial reaction of some during a recession, living with in-laws can quickly lose its allure,” Buffett said.

Buffett said the recovery in the housing market could vary quite a bit among local housing markets, however. He did not provide a timeline of when he expected a full housing recovery, admitting that his prediction last year that a housing recovery will take shape within the year turned out to be “dead wrong.”

Some real estate investors in the Phoenix Real Estate market are purchasing as many single family homes as they possibly can. The market here is extremely competitive now and we are seeing multiple offers on homes. The time to buy was when no one else wanted to purchase real estate in Phoenix. According to the Case Shiller market index, Arizona was one of the two markets that saw prices increases in February. The time to buy was a year ago but there is still time, but its just more difficult with increased competition.
