Phoenix Real Estate Market Results May 2014

Phoenix MLS Home Sales
Realtors in the Phoenix real estate market reported 7,490 homes sales in May 2014. That's 178 less than April. Year-over-year sales are down considerably from 9,444 homes sales in May 2013. Additionally, home sales are the lowest since 2008. Realtors normally report spring and early summer as a time of year when home sales are seasonally escalating. Home buying demand is down in the Phoenix real estate market. Looks like we'll be in a home buyer's market for a while. For a complete look at sales trends go here: PHOENIX REAL ESTATE MARKET

Price per square declined after 2 months at $130. The chart provides a 12 month perspective.

NOTE: Michael Orr of the Cromford Report noted "...that the disappearance of distressed (foreclosure) sales almost accounts for the entire drop in year to date Phoenix MLS sales between 2013 and 2014."

Phoenix Realtors recommended by Phoenix Home Buyers May 2014

Ron and Kristina were wonderful and the best Phoenix Realtors we had, and we had a few. My husband and I had been looking for a year before we met Ron and Kristina.

They were more than accommodating to our needs ready and willing to show us houses when we needed. And they were available for questions along the way. This was so refreshing especially in this housing market. We we’re fortunate that we had such knowledgeable Phoenix Realtors during this process, as first time home buyers it can be a little scary. We found the perfect house and it was only the second house we looked at. The process was smooth and painless thanks to Ron and Kristina being there every step of the way. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an honest and trust worthy Phoenix Realtors that go above and beyond.


Thanks Aaron and Melinda. That home was perfect

Phoenix Real Estate Market Results for April 2014: Buyers Market Month 5

Welcome to our Phoenix real estate market report for the recently finished month of April 2014. April is the 5th month of the buyer's market that began in December 2013. The biggest question on most people minds is: "what's happening to supply and demand?" Let's start with supply.
Inventory in the Phoenix Real Estate Market
Housing inventory has become very stable in the Phoenix MLS averaging 26,200 homes in the last 4 months. As a historical perspective, listings were at a 7 year low in the summer of 2012 when they stayed under 13,000 for 3 consecutive months. This event triggered a seller's market in the Phoenix real estate market that lasted nearly 18 months. The sellers market ended in December 2013 when, after listings increased for 18 months, we approached our normal inventory level of about 25,000 listings. Inventory has become very stable over the last 4

National Home Sales in 2013 are the Highest in 5 years

The Phoenix Housing Market is my normal source for blog posts about home sales and helping home buyers and home sellers. This time I came across an article in Realty Times that said national home sales are the highest in 5 years. These statistics come from the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

The reprint of this article is authorized because I am a paid subscriber to Realty Times. My commentary on this article about national home sales follows. Written by Blanche Evans on Monday, 27 January 2014 12:01 pm.

Begin article:

Just when it seemed that home sales were taking a breather, new data from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) says that home sales in 2013 were the highest since 2006, well before the housing meltdown.

For all of 2013, housing sales totaled 5.09 million units, which is 9.1 percent higher than in 2012.

Home Bathroom Remodel Helps Improve or Sell Homes: Low Cost Options

Is a home bathroom remodel for you? Here are some pictures and commentary from a recent home bathroom remodel that may inspire you and save you money. This house had 3 bathrooms with the same style of 4 inch, glazed ceramic tiles and decorative trim. The tiles were grouted and had long since become soiled and unattractive.

The method used in the hallway bathroom involved acid washing the tiles and grout and then using a special paint and sealer on them. This is a 2 day process, not without some rather strong odors, that is very affordable as a home bathroom remodel. Total cost was
