April, 2018 Phoenix area real estate report

 

 

Price increases in the Phoenix market came storming back last month after a brief pause in February. The volume of home sales was the highest we have seen in the past year. While there may be multiple factors for the price increases and rapid sales, the most likely reason is the rising interest rate, which is expected to still go higher in the next 12 months.

 

The overall average home price in March increased by 2.9%, moving from $312,303 to $321,218. The increase over March 2017 was 9.6%. The average price per square foot decreased to $158.

 

Inventory stayed roughly the same at 15,146 homes for sale, but the number of homes sold increased substantially to 9,105. The numbers indicate that there is just a one and a half month supply of homes on the market, which is a seller's market.

 

The breakdown of homes currently available stayed steady after experiencing some big changes the month prior. The percentages of available homes are: $0-$150,000 (5% of the market), $150,000-$250,000 (19%), $250,000-$500,000 (41%), $500,000+ ($35%).

 

Foreclosures and short sales continue to stay at their record low rates of 0.7% of the market and 0.4% respectively. They continue to be an insignificant portion of the market.
