Phoenix Real Estate Continues to Balance

Here is a snapshot of what’s happening in our market:

  • There are 11.3% MORE homes for sale today compared to a year ago, a significant increase. 
  • There were 12.4% FEWER homes sold last month compared to a year ago.
  • We have 3.36 months of supply, which reflects a more balanced market between the number of buyers and sellers.

What does all this mean? Home buyers are being more selective in their home purchases, and sellers are needing to adjust accordingly.

Market Update January 2019

Mortgage Rates Drop

The U.S. economy remains on solid ground, inflation is contained and the threat of higher short-term rates is fading from view, which has allowed mortgage rates to drift down to their lowest level in 10 months. This is great news for consumers who will be looking for homes during the upcoming spring homebuying season. Mortgage rates are essentially similar to a year ago, but today’s buyers have a larger selection of homes and more consumer bargaining power than they did the last few years.
