Every day we field calls from sellers checking on what they can do to their home to increase the home’s value prior to sale.  These questions center around improvements such as solar (we don’t recommend) painting (yes!) flooring and so on.  Yet one of the biggest forfeitures of value is “to whom” and “how” we […]

As 2017 reaches the halfway mark – the trends have solidified. Not surprisingly, supply continues to be constrained under 300K. Most severely constrained is supply under 200K – in Maricopa & Pinal counties it is down a whopping 34% from this time last year. Appreciation is remaining strong.

The spring buying season is now underway and the current numbers seem to confirm the early signals of 2017. New listings to market are tracking almost exactly with 2016.  While this would seem to be good news for supply starved buyers – after all it is 6% more supply than 2015 – is likely to […]

The market is remarkably stable at this time despite some headlines in the past few months implying otherwise.  The “Most Improved” award goes to the luxury market – with Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and Carefree all posting great improvements thanks to higher demand and lower supply (quite a reversal from the 2nd quarter).  No matter how […]

As we enter the last quarter of the year, we begin reflecting on how 2016 has compared to 2015.  It has been a remarkably similar year to 2015 – with only some minor variations. The biggest challenge of the 2016 market has been the intensely low inventory in the $175,000 and under market.  The situation […]
