Arizona Market Update June 2011

Arizona Market Update June 2011

Thank you again to Sarah Moran of Equity Title Agency ( for providing this up to date info!

Here is the Market Update through the end of June 2011.

WOW: Total active listings have dropped by another 2320 units over the beginning of last month. As of July 6, we sit at 28,887 Actives for Single Family Homes and Condos. Sales are at 10,512 for the last 30 days (as of July 6), which continues to trend up. We are currently sitting at a 2.6 months of supply. If you subtract out the AWC Contracts (which are included in Actives in the Cromford Report), we are at 2.1 months of supply. Traditionally, 3-4 months of supply indicate a balanced market. We are in a Seller’s Market!

Distressed Market: Short Sales represent 27% of the Closings for June (compared to 21% in May) and 39% of the active Listings for a 3.9 Months of Supply. Distressed Sales (Short Sales and REOs combined) accounted for 68% of the total sales for June. The listing success rate for Distressed Properties is up to 74.3% and for Short Sales is at an all-time high of 63.9%! Don’t avoid these listings! They are closing with greater success rate!

Closings: There were 9450 closings in June 2011 vs. 9353 closings in June 2010 ~ which equates to a 1% increase over last year! 

Reality Check: The Median Sold Price for Maricopa County for June 2011 was $124,000, which is a 3% increase over last month! In June 2006, the Median Sold Price was $266,523! In June 2000, the Median Sold Price was $136,400. Use this at your listing appointments to help explain what has happened to our market and get realistic list prices!

We currently sit at a 2.6 months of supply valleywide. And we are finally seeing movement in the high-end market. In the MLS, there were 92 properties that sold for $1+ million for the month of June – and currently in the $1+ million segment, there is an 11.7 months of supply – and listings have dropped by 133 units.

Having a dream is good, owning one is better!
