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!!

Phoenix Residential Market Report ~ May 2014

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. Currently the number of transactions is slowing down as a result there is an increase in inventory because the number of listings is not being purchased at a fast enough rate.

Since June 2013 (12 months ago), the average sold price has increased approximately +3.6% (down from last month), the average days on market have increased approximately +27.7% (same as last month) and the number of transaction has decreased approximately -6.6% (down from last month). Since the month of September the average sold price has teeter tottered up and down with no upward trend. This is good news since the market has not formed a downward trend. We will not see an indication of a market reversal until there have been two to three consecutive months of upward or downward pressure on the average sold price, DOM and number of transactions. The current average sold price is approximately $48,000 which is down approximately -1.8% from last month at $252,000.

The volume of foreclosure purchases since June 2013 (12 months ago) has decreased approximately -26.1% and the volume of short sales have decreased approximately -69.9%. Since October 2013 the volume of foreclosure purchases has increased approximately +19.2%. The volume of foreclosure purchases is rising again because Fannie Mae and institutional lenders have been holding onto inventory and they are starting to release their inventory at a faster rate. The volume of short sales is still down but foreclosure purchases are back on the rise.

Since June 2013 (12 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market have increased approximately +51.4%. This increase in the number of listings is caused by investors leaving the market and sellers that purchased during the real estate boom are putting their homes on the market to break-even or sell with a small amount of equity. During the month of May the number of homes for sale has decreased from 29,308 home to 28,776 home or a decrease of approximately -1.8%. This is a good sign for the market since an oversupply of homes on the market will cause real estate prices to decrease and the summer buying season has been slower than in recent years.

As more and more sellers enter the market and as more of the supply of residential homes increase, real estate prices may start to decrease (more supply and weaker demand causes prices to decrease).Real estate prices are still at an all time low (near 2008 prices), mortgage rates are still at a historical low and the market is improving both in terms of prices and the overall economy.

The volume of REO purchases since February 2012 has decreased approximately -52.1% and the volume of short sales have decreased approximately -56%.

As real estate prices increase, more and more sellers that purchased during the real estate boom are putting their homes on the market to break-even or sell with a small amount of equity.

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 (lack of supply causes prices to increase).Real estate prices are still at an all time low (near 2008 prices), mortgage rates are still at a historical low and the market is improving both in terms of prices and the overall economy.
