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 2013

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 due to the lack of inventory but real estate price are continuing to increase.

Since June 2012 (12 months ago), the average sold price has increased approximately +19.8% (up from last month), the average days on market have decreased approximately -11.1% (up from last month) and the number of transaction has increased approximately +10.7% (up from last month). The current average sold price is $242,000 (up 4.4% from last month) which is back to the average sold price experienced in 2008. Since January 2013, the number of transaction is up approximately +55.4% as we enter the summer home buying season.

The volume of REO purchases since June 2012 has decreased approximately -26.8% and the volume of short sales have decreased approximately -54.7%. The volume of REO purchases are shrinking due the increase in real estate prices, more banks are accepting short sale transaction as opposed to foreclosure and an existing supply of inventory is getting purchased at a faster rate.

Since the June 2012 (12 months ago), the number of homes for sale on the market has increased approximately +2.7% (up from last month). 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. The inventory of active homes is consistently being replenished but purchase prices continue to increase.

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 and strong demand 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.
