April, 2017 Phoenix area real estate report

 

 

The spring months are easily the best months for real estate sales in the Phoenix area, and this year is no exception. Real estate values have gone up gradually as inventory has depleted over the past 4 to 6 weeks.

 

The overall average home price in March increased by 1.7%, moving from $288,418 to $293,331. The increase over March 2016 was 7.4%. The average price per square foot increased to $172.

 

Inventory decreased slightly to 17,290 homes for sale, and the number of sold homes increased to 8,891. This indicates that there is a 2 month supply of homes on the market, which is a seller's market.

 

The breakdown of homes currently available stayed relatively even this month. The percentages of available homes are: $0-$150,000 (7% of the market), $150,000-$250,000 (23%), $250,000-$500,000 (40%), $500,000+ ($30%).

 

Foreclosures and short sales continue to stay at their record low rates of 0.9% of the market and 0.8% respectively. They continue to be an insignificant portion of the market.
